lol you must have been really going at that KarateEd :lol: I really struggled with the last Kangaroo in the VAT. There's only one way you can do it
Yeh, got furry eyeballs working this game..... it's a puzzler, that's for sure and not easy on a few of the levels. I still sometimes mess up level one because I'm on 'auto pilot'. I agree on the 'only one way to do it' for the VAT.

Been away for a week, so I have some catching up to do... Can't use my real Beeb as the score disappears to fast to photograph it, so playing on BeebEm. Just figured out level 5, so I'm up to 6 now... 10,776

I came pretty close to getting this level finished. It's a difficult one as I think you have to go forward to the end and then backward to complete it and there are a couple of really 'tight timing spots' on the return trip.

First time to level 12, new high score and very nearly finished level 12, was on the last jump and just missed it due to 'stupidity'.

Got to level 12 with 2 lives intact, however kept losing them on the final jump. I guess now I have to try to perfect that one.

Anyway, I can confirm that after getting 20k, I also got another life so in reality, if you can get to 20k then you will have 2 extra lives on top of the 3 you start with and I dare say that they are needed.

I've uploaded a new png for the start of the page that shows the jump that I'm getting stuck on. It is the last thing before I get to level 13 which should prove to be really nasty.

Ok, guess I got through that barrier on level 12, somehow got through 13 and ended up getting destroyed on 14. Wow, this gets crazy. It's taking me about 20-25 minutes just to play one round now on this.

OK so it turns out toppling the "kong beast" on level 8 is worth 2000 points....

So yeah, I did that a few times... :)
