Hiya

So glad to see we’re playing Snapper.
Are we playing the original or the re release?
The screenshot is the rerelease but the link is to the original (I think).
The original didn’t have the extra life on level 2.

Thanks. I haven’t stopped playing Snapper, Mr E and Chuckie Egg since the 80s so if we could include R and Chuckie too that would be grand ;)

Hi @KarateEd, we could do with an official ruling on this one please - as v2 has the extra life at 15,000 points, that makes a huge difference as far as having a level playing field goes. Either we should allow Snapper v2 (and probably change the link in the first post accordingly), or disallow entries from v2 (those with "Snappy Scores" at the top of the high score table). The former would probably be less disruptive I suppose...

Better score (using v2):

62,360

Ok, I guess I should have clarified this right at the beginning. Since it seems most are playing V2, we'll go with that one. I'll post up the correct link to the download for those that haven't actually used that yet.

First chance I have had to sit at a computer and not work, and then I only have 5 minutes :-(

First score on the door for me 17380

What a poor effort, considering it is one of my game choices!

26810, I got 16K+ on my first man of my first (and only) game. The only difference between this and BITD, was for some reason I didn't immediately panic!
