Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Missed 2 Million by that much.......... Normally when I get to this level, I breeze through to the end. I actually had 2 lives left, did the timing correctly then fumbled the keys....but I'm not whining....how can you whine when you had a perfect first round and a great score. I'm happy with it but...

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Finally, over 1 million. Lives lost in the wrong place shorted me to 2 million I think. Silly mistakes, however I am still getting used to level 2 speed. CC16.png Sorry, Ed but the only way you're going to get 2 million on level 2, scene 15 is if you don't lose a life getting to said scene and mana...

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Finally have made progress. I've been around once and died stupidly on level 9 second time around. Oh, Venger and anyone else that doesn't know.....on level four just hold down the X on the start of the section to get past the first rain drop easily. I saw you were struggling with the timing of it o...

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Made a stupid mistake on 14 and ended up losing focus with the remainder of my 3 lives on 15, which I have been past a few times.....sigh.....the shame.....this should have been a very much higher score.

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Here's a link of how I do level 6. I hope it's useful for somebody. I had trouble getting it to start where I wanted to so go to about 12 seconds in, that's where play starts. This is why I play the game with the sound off! I have a slightly alternative approach to the last blood drop - I linger on...

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Dunnon how you get past the acid drops on level 6. It was just pure luck for me. You have to 'cozy' up near them then time it so that you run under the next drop coming just after the drop disappears on the ground. It's a bit pixel perfect but definitely not the most difficult pixel goodness in the...

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 1 - Elementum

11 is the new 7. Once I got it down to 1 bit, the one on the upper left. I know there has to be a jump of the trampolines but haven't figured it out yet. Those holes are tough to negotiate. One can expect to lose a ton of lives here when learning the process.

Thank you Ed for running the competition, it's always good fun. A close run for the Deathstar high score there...! My pleasure Chris. It's always fun to see how people do in this. It's difficult to find the right types of games sometimes so I have to kind of go with a gut feeling. I'm glad you had ...

Finally, level 8 and a new (for me) high score....and I see how to do level 8 too. Nice work, Ed. You should be right now that you've nailed 7. I was still very erratic in getting those two flags until I had the brainwave to hold down a certain key before making my move rather than doing a quick-fi...

Still hoping for a big breakthrough but just managed to inch up a little more. 3342.JPG I wonder if anyone else has come across this possible bug. I'm playing on BeebEm v4.14 under Windows 7 and quite a few times I've found the play goes out of control on level 7. I think it possibly happens after ...

Damn, I was still playing both games when the time ran out! My final scores were 6600 and 72600, which would probably have been enough to win the cup :cry:
Yeh, on Jet Boat I was still going too and would have eclipsed the top score as well I think.
