I'm at 20k so far, and can see if I put the time in getting to 200k easily... the levels do not get much harder at all after the first few.



That's the key, it just doesn't get any harder after level four or five. After that it's just about staying awake!

JUST 100K needed for a win folks on BCs Quest - an easy 12pts/win in the column for some of you ;)

I think pinhead finishes after (a few of?) the purple heart screens but I might be wrong - hopefully I'll beat this level soon!

Pinhead 7,045

I'll post a picture tomorrow and hopefully have a higher score.

Pac-Man did appear and eat my unicycle after the second or third screen.

And does anyone have any recommendations on what to do with the diamonds? I have forgotten most everything about this game,
hadn't really played it much since the 1980s. But I really like it, except when a balloon pops right next to my foot.

lj- try and collect the items and then get a crab on top - if you kick the crabs back up sometimes they stick - if the same one comes back down 3+ times then it's not going to change its mind! If you're not good at kicking (even after being aggresive with it) then get an early crab as this gives you a longer body to run into the balloons pre kicking. The bonus for a crab on top is 1600 but this soon gets dwarfed/dwarved?! by catching a crab after an object... think I had 5,500 for one crab on cube :)

Sometimes there's a tough split second decision to make to kick one balloon (or two) instead of popping them to save them falling, sometime you are just robbed! Keep an eye on the buckets and fast objects and always try and head away from the screen edges after catching - you can even pop balloons towards the side of the head to keep more central though this is risky!

I've just loaded up for today's go - been playing the new pacman WIP (see main forum) and beta testing of a more complete ver of The Mighty Jill Off (not yet available :grin: )

best viewed with slighly blurry eyes :D
BC's 33,835 - finally got though level 4 - then several more times - guess it is too easy once you master the turtles backs (on PAL anyway) like Pooyan could do without never ending extra men after a certain score etc. (failed to beat my pinhead score)

If anyone's got any thoughts or game suggestions for the final round of the season I've started a discussion thead here!

Wonder if that's why Montezumas' Revenge had no tune?!!! (ok was RAM size)... kinda depressing until you get to the diamonds then it's strangely entrancing (trbb jumps out of the window) :D

Currently listening to Led Zep II, started off this evening with Queen's The Works followed by ACDC's Thunder Struck :music:

Last day for these games folks ;)

Thank the Lord - not sure I've got sufficient willpower to force myself to play beyond 100k.



Pinhead: 18630. No screenshot cuz trbb & bluecat witnessed it (and my phonecam takes really shaky snaps [couldn't possibly be the photographer!])

No improvement in BC's..'cause I couldn't catch that Freakin' BIRD on level 4 :mad: !! Maybe one of you 100K-geniuses can tell us how it's done, since it's as easy as falling off a unicycle :ponder:

I did attempt Pinhead and feel like a patriot for getting past 3K :)

I tend to hit the top of the approaching slope at about 70, the speed up / slow down as appropriate to the bird. So long as it (the 'freakin' bird) is above you when you get to the start of the pit you'll catch it - in short it's exactly the same as catching it on any of the previous levels except the speed requirements are different.

Thanks J-C! I knew it was speed related, I just haven't determined the 'ideal' approach speed to get in synch with the bird, if it's even possible (as opposed to catching it at the precise moment while moving backward = very tricky!).

Motherf**ker... That's twice now I've missed the end of the round! GRRR!!!

I got 5255 in Pinhead and 32855 in BC

But it's cool if I missed the cutoff

No worries +6pts for Pinhead (all other scores still stand) :)
