Ah had a better run after many failed starts, tend to rage quit if I don't make it to level 3 without losing a life... I knew I was close to the top score but missing out by 20 points is a little heartbreaking :-({|=

Made it to level 4 second way through all 6 levels.

Score: 64440

Back to you Ed :D This time made it through all 6 levels twice and ran out of time on level 1 trying to get the last monster and collect a money bag at the same time, should have stuck to getting the baddie and might of got another extra life.

Interesting extra life system as it appears 3 lives are the maximum, so if you lose a life just after going past 10k increments it will be lost if you're already on 3 lives... though it makes losing a life not so bad knowing you can get it back at the next 10k mark.

Score: 75560

Well, a funny thing happened to me on this one. Got through the 3rd time, was over 100k and the screen couldn't be saved because that shown score was on the 4th screen and only a bit above 4k......

I would like people's opinion, I didn't have a chance to save the screen at all and even if I did, all you would have seen was 4210 or something like that.

Will you accept my score as it was definitely over 100k. it rolled over at 99,999....

Ed...... :-)

EDIT: I'm not sure if the score said 4210 or 4120 so I will round it down to 4000 + 100,000 for 104,000 score for that game. There are at least a couple of other players that are likely to hit 100,000. Same rules apply. If you can capture your 4th screen score, great, if not, try to take note of it once the game finishes and before you lose the screen forever.

Ed...... :-)

Well done on getting to 100k =D> I'm happy for your score to stand.

I'm just about keeping up with you, FS ... 76,950.

Thanks Chrisn,

Just so people know, to get there you have to pretty much complete 3 full rounds plus a bit on the 4th level.

OK, so I have bettered my score. I've gone around 100k again plus the score going through the fourth time on the 4th level. I captured it before it disappeared but you have to be quick. 115,540 and...... it does get harder each time through. The creatures get a bit faster and they go ghost in a more random fashion making it much trickier and yet, a couple levels don't seem to change much.

Nice score Ed!

What happens when you enter your name in the high score table, does it sit above scores below 100k?

Would be a useful project at some stage to revisit some of these games and patch them to accommodate higher scores and things like displaying levels done... bring on retirement so I can find the time :-k

Thanks FS, 2nd time I've been through 3x plus.....

The score doesn't register if it's lower than the lowest score on the high table. It doesn't know that it's flipped over 100k.

Oh, you think retirement is going to allow that? Dream on my friend.....

Ed...... :-)

EDIT:OK, have been through 3 sets of screens several times now but keep messing up on the first 3 levels. It is definitely harder and less predictable, especially when it goes off patterns you know and you have to think quick. I've never been accused of thinking quick. Anyway, I have been as far as level 4 on the 4th set of screens which is where my highest score comes from but it's a beggar it seems going much further.

I haven't quite got the hang of the whole "not dying" thing yet. Improving, though. Level 6, second time around.
