Mr. Kraken,

How long does it take for you to get to that high a score....took me 15 minutes just to get to my top score so I'm thinking you've spent some considerable time achieving this lofty goal. :mrgreen:

Nice score Simon....and first try on real h/w....awesome.....

Ed......:-)

If you have real hardware I recommend giving it a go. Emulation is great but there is nothing better than the real thing!

The flickering clouds were bothering me under emulation, they are still there on real hardware - shows just how good emulation is - but they don't seem to bother me as much.

I agree absolutely. I sometimes try it under emulation but I got the Beeb for a reason. That was one of them and this game plays nicely on the Beeb.....

This game is very hard. One pixel shots and collision detection from hell.

Pathetic ... but got to start somewhere, and don't want to miss out submitting anything for this round ... will try on a real Beeb at the weekend!

Time Pilot was one of the few arcade games that I actually ever put money in the real arcade machines.

This one took fifty-eight minutes. I'm going to have to swear off this game now.

I don't remember this game being so hard with the bad collision detection and flickering.

Best attempt so far is 45700.

Really struggling to get past 39100 - how did the rest of you get such high scores?

At least it's given me a good chance to test out !6502em on the RPi :)
