Cave 8 is a bugger. Lost lots of lives at the start of that one then lost the rest on cave 10.
Getting further each time though.

I can't figure out how to get the tripod and still finish level 11, but I can get all the horseshoes now. 12 was OK, 13 requires a great deal of precision. Which I failed at.

Got a little bit further, the first level with the flying thing is pretty hard though.

Still level 13. I can do the hard bit, but not the really hard bit.

Level 13, missed a few tripods and some screens I think they're not possible. Only had 6 lives so didn't get to practice 13 too much but looks like a lot of fun doing the pole jumps.

Score: 152340

Grrr! Thought I'd made it to the top of the score chart at last.
That cave 13 is a real killer for me.

Got past 13 on my last life then scored a couple of extra lives, and 14 looks a bit easier but the jumps are really difficult.

Finally got through 11.... this should help my score once I get really used to it...Edit:..and got to the funky 'stick' level. Almost got it done, slipped on the last one - forgot the umbrella...doh!!!!

Quite enjoying this which is unusual for as I don't generally get on with platform games.
Not sure I'll play much more though as I'm back on the trail of becoming Elite.

One thing I keep reading over and over but can't seem to find in game is the Hydraulic rams and puffer blimps, anyone can explain what I'm missing for these?

It's probably something right in front of me but I'm yet to work out :?

Stuck on level 6 at the mo. A little more practice needed I think. Been busy building my BeebSID today so not a lot of time for playing Boffin.

I am getting to like it though and getting used to the BeebEm version as it's not playable on my Master, I get the same blank screen issue that KarateEd had in OS1.2. Wont play at all in any later OS on my Master.

New high score = 70495

Colin posted a master 128 compatible version on page 1 of the thread which definitely works.

This game is utterly brutal. Good thing you get so many extra lives, you really need them.

Finally worked out level 11, I have no idea about level 12 though.

Still stuck on the 'stick' level, mostly just have to beat the spider now to the finish. Once I realized that I was jumping in the wrong spot and had I been in the right spot would have been through the level. It's an interesting one.

A little better. It's the spider timing now that's the issue. I thought once I got past all the posts I should be able to easily finish. This game just never works that way. You have to figure out 'everything' right to the very end......sigh......
