Made it to level 3 'Suction Tubes' with one life only, loved Miner 2049 on Apple IIe BIT so this might be up my alley once I get my eye in and time permitting, great game!

Score: 19420

So something probably really simple in this game but I'm not getting how the 'bugs' change from 'gettable' to 'kill me when I touch them'.

What is the trigger that turns them from benevolent to killers and back to benevolent again?

Thanks, I'm sure this will help others.

Ed...... :-)

Edit: Figured it out, it's the last page of instructions though not super clear but after a few plays see how it works.

I do the whole left side moving down each platform in order then move over to the right side and work my way back up to the top.

Enjoy :D

Slight improvement, made it to level 6 (twice) and did the usual waste lives (twice) with silly mistakes.

Still working through level 3 but it's coming, slowly but surely. The horizontal 'sliders' don't work the way a lot of games do. Once you're on them you don't have to 'run' on them to stay on them, like in Ghouls. That had me for a while, couldn't figure out why I kept falling off. Guess I just like to run.

I'm missing something here, how do you actually "finish" the level?

EDIT: Oh ok, actually read the instructions.. let's have another go

Awe, c'mon Barbarossa, it grows on you after a while. Give it a chance and you'll see. I kinda felt that way at first too, it's hard but it's fair.

Level 6 high score..... think I have 5 figured out now and can get to 6 with at least 1 life but should be able to get there with at least 2 from now on.
