Will try that out for scene 4, for scene 5 that first drip is a bit hit and miss, I usually take a couple of steps forward and then wait for the drop to appear at the top and then jam the buttons for right and jump... sometimes works, sometimes doesn't... last few attempts I stand in the same position but jump first and then press right once in the air to avoid bumping into the drip too early, still working on it but seems to be a slightly better result than previous attempts.

Great game and enjoying playing, yet another I never saw BITD =D>
I got this game from the local newsagents - they used to have loads of cassetttes at 1.99 or 2.99 , sometimes they were rubbish, or sometimes there was a little gem there like this one, and for a couple of quid it was always worth getting - in fact if I saw anything in there with BBC/Electron on it I bought it. My paper round money didn't go very far !

New high score, if you can get to Level 6 without losing a life then the bonus goes up, and your score increases the longer you don't lose a life, managed to get onto level 6 then lost a life at the end of it. some of the levels after 5 and 6 are a lot easier I think.

Got to level 10. Losing lives too easily in some of the levels but I've only played 9 & 10 a bit so I'm sure it's going to improve.

See tip earlier above for level 4 Col...... it will help.

You do this by holding down the X key while the ghost is going across the screen. That way the man will start running immediately that the ghost hits the wall and you'll go past the drop with no problem but.... be prepared to jump too so you don't just drop off the ledge.

I have now seen level 15 but no higher score....in fact I fell 61k short, that's the price you pay when you lose lives in the wrong spots.

Interesting game... a little frustrating, but at least it's consistent.

Got to level 6 without losing any lives, somehow.

Indeed :lol:

Made it past scene 20 and up to level 2, scene 14. Second level everything is a little faster so all the timing is off, surprised I made it that far but seemed to be one of those in the groove games.

Managed to keep all my lives for a long time this time round, which helps you to rack up the points, got to the end, not much of an end but at least there is one (sort of) the game then restarts and gives you a new set of lives, the last level, scene 20 is very easy indeed.

Think this is as far as i'll get with this one now.

Lost my first life on scene 19 with a silly jump, bonus was up to 37,000 :shock:

Played this one with no sound and restarted a few times after dismal starts.
