loved Boffin2 on the elk the best! these pair are my fav games of all time! :mrgreen:

sure on Boffin1 you can't get passed level 20, & on Boffin2 level 16.... :?

anyways, got stuck on level12, which I think I usually got to BITD 8)

Here we go for starters. Not played this for more than about 20 seconds before (seemed a little irritating when I last played it), perhaps it will grow on me this time.

First couple of attempts. Not showing the scores of the games before I remapped the keys in beebem...

I need to load this on proper hardware.

I think this is level 9, not sure. It's where horseshoes first appear. Figured out how to do it, just screwed up.

I tried to play this on my Master in 1.20 O/S mode and the screens randomly would blank out at the beginning of the level. It basically made the game unplayable on my Master. Has anyone else noticed this? Will I have to resort to a real Beeb?

Thanks for any info you may have on this.

Thanks Col, it's a bit better but still gets blank screens. It could be because I'm in 1.20 O/S so I'll try it in pure Master mode and see how that is.

Level 11 is fiendish. It seems to have two things that need to be done last.

First go at this game ever. Never heard of it so I guess it never made it to the Elk.

Probably worst score of round 3 so far :oops: But hey, i'm at the top of my own leader board :-D

Score = 40410
