Really?! That's different... practice makes perfect.

It's pretty easy, actually, you move through the ground
blowing up enemies like balloons. Just stay a solid distance from each creature before blowing them up.

Very gory game!! but without blood LOL...

I also recorded my games, here is my best one ... of the day .. so far!
I got a few good "Rock crushing" ... one of 12K
Level 9 was a disaster, I was surprised by the numbers of "underground-dwelling monsters"

Kudos for trying it...

Would you like to be added to the Knockout contest, or is this score for fun?

I don't try to crush the bad guys with the rocks.
I just drop 2 rocks, get the bonus item, pop the rest of the bad guys, and move on to the next level. :)

I'm a little surprised at this first attempt.

I did a good mix of crushing things and blowing them up. Here's a tip: If you see a fygar about to roast you and it looks like you can't get outta there, a quick pump oughtta stop it. Also, I've escaped many a pooka touch-death just from pumping and backpedaling. ...and crushing helps. :)

1/2 WAY THROUGH DIG-DUG


Jifremok, flies into 1st....
Gorfy overtakes Sonic R. by 14ks.
patbb & Darrin9999 join the Knockout in 3rd and 6th place.
roadrunner at the moment, has been pushed from the top spot into 2nd.

4 players with no score recorded yet...
LarcenTyler
peedenmark7
bigbee99
atomickneedrop


Darrin9999 is on the bubble with 14,100, though there's about 3-4 days left to go!
