I don't have Fill 1 or 2, but do have Kwixx. It's even harder than Qix and does have the Sparx with the addition of a timer that can kill you as well. :)

3,758 Kwixx (C64)

I got my highest score ever today, thanks largely to my clearing 86% on screen 1.

4Ks try this sort of tactic to boost your score (without losing the man!) : then seal him in the hole using slow draw if you can...

just did this on the emulator on NTSC - the game is seriously quicker on NTSC so kudos to you guys :thumbsup:

Extended this round until Weds 21st 10am BST - we seem to be missing a few regulars hope everyone is ok? ...
I'll drop down the scoring for ROM as we have so few players - the scoring differences will be maintained.

Checkout the Team Round final vote & preparation topic folks :)

I looked forward to playing ROM, but no versions so far have ever worked for me in A800win. The game just runs on auto-pilot and destroys cities, but doesn't respond to any controller/keyboard inputs :(

QiX:

Just tried that emulator (I think) 2.2.0 version ? same on my PC... it takes a key to continue & 1-3 to start, but not the space bar - anyone else using this emulator :?: [edit: perhaps it was coded by the Russians!]

Qix 99% - that's just plain cruel :evil:
remember the Qix knows where you live :D

Congratulations to Orpheuswaking for his 4th win of the season on Qix (and beating the
HSC record by 9000) Level 1 bonus challenges 1pt each won by Atariron82 for highest %
(99%) and myself for the hi-score (46,343).

Congratulations to deteacher for his 3rd win of the season and impressive performance on
Raid Over Moscow, completing all 3 levels and escaping! - a good game worth playing (more
fun on suicidal difficulty) if you can get over the tricky first screen :ponder:

I won the bonus game Fill'er Up II - not a bad game but Qix still rules (and terrifies!).
Final tables below, please check your scores.

The next round is a HSC *Team* Round so get friends and family roped in for a month of
classic Atari gaming :)

Glad you enjoyed the game TRBB, I was worried everyone would hate it and then I'd be ostracized for suggesting crap :D
