Actually don't worry about missing the previous score, i've just managed to beat it, think this is as far as I will get with this now, virtually impossible to do anything when the levels go invisible !
My apologies Matt.....I've been very busy here lately so when I do update, it's early in the morning and when I'm tired and rushed.....ah, great excuse eh?

Others should also check to ensure I haven't missed their best scores because I'm semi-human after all and am prone to mistakes in the wee hours of the morning.

If I could avoid bugs the score would have been much higher. I'd just gotten into a really big nest of broken tracks that would have boosted the score....

High Score Tables Updated for Season 14, 9th Round......

Well, I didn't like this game very much at first but once I started getting used to how to move and why and where to move it grew on me. I think it's got a brilliant idea couched in decent game play and.....we have a winner, MatthewThompson who snuck up on everyone in this game and just crushed it. Congratulations go out to you Matt on a well deserved win. =D> =D> =D>

On a side note I'd like to thank all those who played. We had 13 playing this game this time which is slightly above average so.....Thank you all for the participation!!!

It's been a while since I got the top score in one of the high score rounds, pretty good going too considering my first thoughts of the game weren't favourable ! I found the randomness of the bugs appearing very annoying, but other than that not a bad game.

on to Pengo now ..
