Last one for the night.... I got this once but got the full screen windows button and couldn't save the shot, so had to keep playing until I got the score again.... I actually got 5 more points with this one .... woohoo.....

Improved score, those green bouncy things are my biggest problem, don't know why, but find them a nightmare to get past.

I hear you Matt. When I start playing the game 1st time each day, I always have trouble with that level. It's a timing thing and if you get off to the wrong start on it, it's very difficult to recover before all your lives disappear.

Having said that, I got past level one again and actually levelled up one more on level 2.

I actually got a higher score than this but lost it by accident to soft reset.... only a couple hundred more so will probable get that in the next day or 2. Looks like it's game on now with some high scores happening.

@MatthewTompson - Me too, new high score....

@CMcDougall - I didn't like this game at first but once I figured the mechanics out a bit, it grew on me and now.... what can I say, I'm addicted to it....

Sorry for the duplicate guys, my PC was acting up a bit..... [EDIT: deleted it for you]

[EDIT: this score is only 10 more but I got through the 2nd level first blue cave which is an accomplishment. (thought I might as well use this space for good something or other).]

Just a token score from me this round. Definitely not my kind of game.

Twitch ... those mushrooms ... managed to jump one, ONCE ... ](*,) 960 (seems to be the score you get when you are thwarted by the mushrooms of doom!)

Getting the same beeb-em corruption, might try in b-em (not that that will help my score!)

It also works better in JSBeeb but the corruption will eventually come and there sometimes is a hesitation that will lose you a life. To jump the mushrooms you have to jump up and move forward. Start your jump and bit before you get to the mushroom. it's a timing thing.

Ah, that might be the bit I was missing. For the other ground hazards it's just jump jump jump ...

b-em not playing nicely on my new PC so will try jsbeeb.

Thanks for the tip, let's see if it makes any difference!

Had 2 lives when I started this 'screaming fast' level and promptly lost them both. Not quite sure how to get it started but, might figure it out before the deadline passes.
