Lol, well only to same level. I just can't get passed the damn acorn.


I've read about patterns to follow on the arcade version of pacman. Does anyone know whether such things exist on Snapper?

I had a few emails about this in 1996 from someone who wondered about the fruits, he thought I could try out due to my high scores and so I played the games then to note the order of fruit. With V1 I noted in that email that the acorn repeats, with V2 I noted at the end of the list of fruits only: acorn,... I can't remember if with V2 the acorn repeats, or that I assumed it repeats.

My score with V2 is 184k, so about 20 k higher than your score from a few years ago, not sure if I got more bonuses or got past the first acorn level. I can't try now, everything is in storage. I would assume the acorn level just repeats, and perhaps gets faster. So with "can't get past the acorn level", do you mean you die or that you keep seeing only acorns at each next level? (in V2 I presume)

BITD I taught a student who, amongst his many accomplishments, was able regularly to score over 1 million on snapper version 1. :shock:

He had learned the patterns of movement of the 'enemies' and 'ghosts'. He was put to the test one afternoon and met his target easily within the double lesson and without losing a single 'life'. I do not remember anything appearing after the acorn. The acorn appeared to be the top fruit. If I recall there were multiples at some point.
