Gotta getaway getawaaaaaaay :music:

Getaway - head diagonally away from the baddies [head away and heard them together] and make it round to your base [take them to the a far edge before heading back] you can maintain a small distance gap without problem - use diagonals/move ahead of turns.

 

New Getaway - spotted the "Ripdubski" and the "2016" - not sure if these quality as the easter eggs, will read it now! Yes seems smaller and possibly easier to navigate, the graphics could have been nicer. I wonder if there is a larger map than we think :ponder:

 

Beat my score with 10,500 but lower rank "Dangerous Type" - we'll play for Rank then Score for this round so learner robbers hurry through the levels to get a higher rank and then play again with more point grabbing in mind :thumbsup:

Will put new poll on tomorrow :)

I cheated, read the description and looked at the PNG file. Compared to the original map, the new one has more of separate neighbourhoods that are interconnected at the far end, less small streets going everywhere. It seems the "Easter Eggs" are about features in the map, like the texts you discovered and more. Nothing that really affects how to play the game. Apparently the hideout is at the exact same location on the map, it was just me who got the feeling it was more central. It appears the map may contain multiple hideouts, but when you lose a life, it will reset to the hard coded location irregardless on how the map looks like.

 

I was toying with the idea of combining some of the track ideas we used in Rally Speedway with this one, but those racing tracks normally have very few crossings so it might not work out so well. I think the original + the already made maps are enough for now.

:thumbsup:

New Getaway - also spotted "inverse & atascii". These road words do help with the navigation.

8,770 I am now a "Dangerous Type", probably true as I know I have dangerous typing :-o

Still a Hardened Criminal but 14,820, had all three "/"s and just needed the white van man, but stupidly moved off the hideout when the fuzz where passing by :mad:  :)

Improved my Getaway ranking to 'Dangerous Type' but with a slightly lower score of 6430 (previous post shows my high of 6500).

Managed to beat my Kaverns of KFest score, too. Up to 45584 now. This is seriously addictive!

Good news, its the best way to play. You should be able to pick one up for a reasonable price. I have a spare but its a fixer-upper...

Did you own a real Atari before? If so which model and what happened to the original one?

I had Atari 65XE with tape player in a really bad shape, mostly because I used to loose my temper very easy when I was young. So the space bar didn't work because I punched it after playing Henry House, return key was damaged when I couldn't beat last level in House of Usher, etc. Unfortunately it was stolen from my basement some time ago...

Actually managed to grab the 3 wands on super speed, because they were all near the hideout.  Couldn't catch the van, though.
