^ I found the keys on laptop where not so good, really hard going back & forward to keep in the two bigger spaces on the way across, hence only got 710 on lappy, so tried on beeb & was much better but more noisy.
Think Fred eats too many pies compared to lazy management.... :lol:

take me to the top \:D/

that will be a first ever for me.... this moment in time... the tune is too good! :D

tried again tonight, but only got around the 3,000 mark, so yesterday was just a good run.
sometimes you can walk straight across if timing is right, does not happen often though #-o

New high score, getting harder now as there is less space for the workers to move up and down so makes crossing more tricky.

I had this back in the day on the Electron, as part of "The Dynabyte Collection" tape. A somewhat fun game, although not one of my all time favourites.

This is pretty brutal - I don't remember the Electron version being this fast, but my memory could be playing tricks on me.

Halfway through sheet 3 it gets pretty hard.

Didn't get any further, but did the earlier levels a bit quicker and squeezed a few more points out of them.
