This game is quite enjoyable. It definitely has some issues I could critique, but, in the end, it's enjoyable to play, and that's really all that matters.

Takes some getting used to, timing-wise. Any control tricks apart from pressing the button I should know of?

 

First score: 945.

Pressing the button gives you a speed burst, but it also drains the clock/bonus faster.

I was actually anxious to get home from work so I could play this again.  I love it when that happens.

It seems like the first screen is harder than the rest, which is out of the norm for an Atari game.  The first screen doesn't have much speed differential between the columns.  The later levels usually have one or two columns that move super slow, which is ideal for hovering back and forth in that column until the rest of the way becomes clear.

Another delightful 'brew!  Fantastic music, too, which sounds amazing coming from the 2600.  Glad this game got picked to play.

I agree this is odd, and, at first, I didn't like it.  Now, however, I'm starting to enjoy the idea because it means that having a good first board is what can set up a good game (provided you get through the next few too), which is unlike other games where you do the same easy boards over and over before you can start practicing the tougher levels.

Well, it's certainly good to know about the button, but in my case, it isn't helping that much...... 1,675
