Re: High Score Challenge Season 16 - Rd 04 - Tetrapod

My first gaming experience (wasn't it everyone's) was at age 26, Pong. My wife and I were on our honeymoon in Hawaii when we saw it and decided to get it. It was cheaper there and the Canadian $ was 10 cents better at that time than the American $. After that I got a PET so got into gaming and progr...

This game gets REALLY hard in the later stages. There's no room at all for error and you have to get lots of luck because the pods never stop bouncing and you're just dodging bullets and enemies most of the time.
and that's how you solve that problem, isn't it?

Re: High Score Challenge Season 16 - Rd 04 - Tetrapod

Just idea's, I'm not asking anyone to take on these ideas but I've often thought we could do a little more than play the game :-k :) Phew, thank goodness!!

Re: High Score Challenge Season 16 - Rd 04 - Tetrapod

I'm going to say something mildly controversial but something that I (personally) think needs to be said. If you want to delete what I post then that's fine by me. We've all got the "usual suspects" that play each and every round and we all love the challenge of new (old) games that a lot...

Has anyone had the game crash on them like this?
Yup, once. I thought I had done a multiple key press by accident.

Of course he had to Venger. You've won so much you are now a target, in a friendly way of course. You are why we're getting better.

Re: High Score Challenge Season 16 - Rd 03 - Castle Assault

Sorry guys,

What happened was I forgot to upload the scores to the site, but they are there and they were in my spreadsheet, so all is good as you can see.

Thanks for letting me know, getting old and feeble it seems.

Well done, Ed. I couldn't stomach playing the damned game after a couple of hours on it. You forgot about the bloody psychic duck that seems to appear on the same platform as you with alarming regularity! There's often nothing at all you can do to avoid it either. Thanks Venger, you're right, the b...

Seems like a bug has crept in. In the first slot the 3rd level creature is overlayed on top of the first level creature. The 2nd slot creature is normal.

Got to level 5. It seems this programmer thinks the way to boost difficulty is to speed the game up......laziness I'd say.....sometimes that works. In this game it is obscene. CA12.png Yeah, I agree. It was like that in Creepy Cave as well though, although that was a far superior game. Anyway, it's...

I think I know what this is. It's a different version of Wallaby......with random birds and rocks instead of monkeys and bananas. It's the kind of game you think you should be able to score high in when in reality it's a test for your sanity....... If not for random birds ALWAYS appearing on the pla...
