And I'm sometimes getting frustrated trying to get a good score but at least I'm slowly moving up. The game is pretty good. It's fair most of the time which is good. Sometimes, like many of this era, it just seems easier to get a good score than at other times. This game definitely falls into that category.

Agreed.
I think I'm getting the hang of it but it still depends on luck sometimes.

You're certainly right there. It didn't seem too hard to get my previous score, but it's taken about a dozen goes to beat it. Then, this go, somehow I manage to breeze right past it with 6 lives remaining :o

This game is growing on me a bit, I'm actually starting to enjoy it.

Slow painful progress on a real Master - 24,850. Which doesn't move me in the table at all, so will keep trying and post an image later!

Oh Richard, I wasn't trembling, I was trying to stifle a chuckle..... :twisted: :roll: :lol:

Play it a few more times, your score will go up.....you're not a lamer, you just have less frequency on the games than others are doing.....trust me, it's about repetition and rhythm.

This is a pretty frustrating game. This might be it for me this round.

The car is in the garage today and I have to pick the kids up early so it looks like a day off for me. Might have a few more tries later too!

Yep, definately a lot of luck involved.
I can find no other way to explain that score!

Just checking - the lower this number (the one you call "the score") the better you are doing?

I will be away Friday and Saturday so won't be likely posting anything until late Sunday evening/night UK time so please don't panic if you don't see your latest score posted same day for a couple days. I will get them posted when I get back.

I'll give it another blast - I got that almost 25K-score and then had another whole bunch of games and didn't get past it.

Like a few of you said - sometimes you just seem to get a better score in the game. Just my peak is rather below everyone else's!

I'm starting to enjoy this game... 55575 :D

Perhaps it's just because it is more authentic, but I find this game a little more responsive on a real beeb compared to BeebEm.

...hope I can fit another game in before 9pm tomorrow.

It was a choice between watching 'Big Momma's House 2' or play this again. I had a pretty much perfect start and had 8 lives at one point.

That is definitely my last go! :lol:
