Jb, simple instructions...

Grad the 2 things in the sky on each level (1 on the 3rd due to the arrow of happiness/doom™ ) and then get yourself to the middle to leave without being hit!

Ok, simple instructions over.

74,200! All time personal best!

Once I get to about 30K, the game starts to get fun again. :)


I'm happy when I get to 30,000, too. I'm glad the game lasted that long. :-D

*Sigh* This might be it for me in the knockout :( (Although I can still play for points ;))

The key to a good game, is remember to FALL through the floor when in trouble...
also, use elevators BEHIND the TANKS (when they show up) approach each new
platform when they go wizzing on by first... try not to climb in front of a moving tank,
it's hard to jump over their random shootings!

This is a tricky game, but knowing all the tricks of the trade, really can get you better at it... kinda like Stampede,
you gotta do some Tron maintinence! Instead of cow managment.

You are safe on the elevator "until" it stops... falling through the middle pole or floor also makes you safe!
WHEN YOU LAND , YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!

Does anyone have any good tips... I dunno how to explain this game!

you know I wonder if Tron is able to have kids after sliding up and down that pole. I think I'd rather be shot by a tank


Tron slides down more poles then a stripper or fireman!
Or is it Flynn here?

I dunno... Mattel man he looks like...

Started to get the rhythm of those quicker levels. I had two guys, toward the end, that didn't score any points. I thought the game was over, but one more guy dropped out of the sky. That last guy pulled his weight and got me from 37K to 42K.

I'm beginning to think the competition has reached a point where casual players may not be willing to invest the time to adequately compete:

I believe we are way past the point that we would have "Casual players" still in the Knockout Competition :)

I looked up the Twin Galaxies record for this game.......In 2003, somebody named Ron scored 996,800!!! Hard to believe, and a bit humbling as well.
