Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R04 - Hard Hat Harry

Slightly better....the sad thing is that the last time we played this I know I got past this level too....and don't remember the sequence....ah well, such is the memory thing with age.

Re: Acorn Virtual Saturday August 1st HSC

Not that it would have affected the overall result, but you used my last score (6220) for Arcadians not my hi-score (8370) :? That was the only two games I had time to play! Ah, sorry Helpful, too much of a hurry getting the sheets up, my bad. I'll fix it to reflect your true score. (sits in corner...

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R03 - Breakthrough

High Score Tables Updated for Season 14, 3rd Round...... What an interesting game (if I don't mind saying so myself). It had some incredible screens though I only saw 27 of the 99 but what a bunch of twists and turns. The only thing marring this game was the inconsistent key presses. This spoiled a...

Oh dear, then. I was the first level and tap tap TAP to make him move and he either doesn't move or hurls himself into the fire AGAIN. But seeing as it's the same for everyone else I can't use THIS excuse for my lame score! :cry: Seems a bit odd, though, cos the game isn't at all bad - with the gra...

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R03 - Breakthrough

Another slight bump up. When I went to block the ghost on 24, the block didn't appear, another key glitch. This cost me a significant higher score and I even got an extra life again so it can happen. Perhaps I should buy a lottery ticket.

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R03 - Breakthrough

Got past 23 finally and figured out 24 but foolishly died there for no good reason at all.....

I think this is i...

On my last high score I actually got 3 diamonds and it does give you an extra life. Pity I screwed up and had already lost a life but I was chuffed getting the life none-the-less.
