Not that it makes a huge amount of difference, but my best score is 118890, not 67580. Cheers Ed :wink:

Make that 194760. At least I managed to beat the author's score, I suppose :lol: .

I think this game riles me up just as much as Wallaby did :lol: :lol: :lol:

Once again my old eyes have come to the fore. It seems I will have to double check my work and this time with the eye of discovery of what I've missed. Sorry Vengur, we'll set it right. You won't see it in the HS table until I update that next time but rest assured it will go in there anyway.

This was one of the few Micro Power games I didn't buy back in the day. Fast paced and fun, but a bit too random at times.

Best score so far, not played this for years, but loved playing it, bought it for the Electron, but it was bugged and crashed every time on the last (Mega-Bod) level so totally impossible to complete, but luckily the BBC version was absolutely fine.

Wonder where the inspiration for the alien names comes from?

I finally got through the first wave of screens with all lives intact and ended up well into the third wave. Bonus lives still look unreachable... :roll:

A small improvement. This game is so random, especially with regards to how fast the aliens drop down and when they decide to go into "kill mode" where sometimes it's impossible to get into a position to kill them. I had 3 lives left at about 230000 and lost them all in the space of a few seconds and there was nothing I could do about it 🤬🤬🤬. I don't know whether I have the patience to play this much more.

Do you remember that time you made us all play Psycastria? Do you further remember that time you made us all play Psycastria 2?

I don't believe in Karma... but yeah, Karma ;) :twisted: :D

You can blame me for Psycastria as it was my pick for the championship round (hence couldn't be avoided), but it was pure chance that Psycastria 2 was picked at random by Ed from my list :mrgreen:

This isn't a bad game but it's a little too random for my liking and it mainly relies on you battering the crap out of the fire button (although there is some dodging and strafing to do) and hoping for the best. There seems to be a theme running through Mr. Partis' games by the looks of it :lol:
