Spelunker:  820,590!  Finished it up, but I did leave a few treasures behind, so the score is beatable. :)

So my question is...how does he get out with the treasure?  ;)

:thumbsup:  It's definitely one game that you can make progress on with regular play. The bit I wasted lots of men on yesterday I went straight past today and reached level 4 despite messing around and getting him stuck in the rocks (and no not in a hole) where he couldn't move!

396,525 :)

Not a proud run as I didn't even get past the Ropes but still managed a lot more score than my last good run. Must have grabbed a lot of bonus points rather than lives. Last two lives lost on the elevator to elevator jump in Ropes which I probably will forego the next time :mad: as there are no vitals there anyway.

Stealing time for this but how can you not give it another try when so close to TRBB ;)

I'm playing again later slx - you'll regret not collecting everything if you reach the end ;)

 

Does anyone think you can actually get all the items at the very end of level 2 - It seems to end the level when you get the first one/near them, I think once I did land first on the ledge and wonder if you can jump R to get the others, possibly they are for display only :ponder:

You can get the left one, then jump to get the right one, the middle treasure then ends the level.

 

Got a bit further on the 4th stage, waiting for the flying boat thingy cost me a few men, I didn't get all the way down.

461,655 :)

Thanks, will try that on the next run

Already regretting that I didn't give it one more try ;) You just can't bet on TRBB staying behind for more than half a day...

Same for me with the Shaft, but <400.000 this time, still don't know where I got so many points last time. At the time I still try to leave out areas that usually cost me too many lives in relation to points just to get to the end.

beamer and McKong - this game is really good! Round 10 will be a catch-up and improve score so more time to play then :)

 

I thought I was going to get to the end, adrenaline was pumping and got through to the Pyramids for the first time ever. Blew my last 4 lives trying to get down from a ledge to the blue platforms - not sure how to do this :twisted:

@slx

- does stockpile more than 6 lives.

- re scoring I had the following collecting everything (I think) and including the end of level bonuses

lv1 197,530

lv2 294,570

wonder if the exrtra life random thing sometimes gives you points / varies - need to check, think it was 3,510 ??

after some running around the Shaft (got all the keys and in sight of the blue doors but ran out of lives.

@Sleepy: the version you play is the one I remember as a pirated copy from my youth.

OOPS I forgot we have until 10pm UK time for this round  (what foresight I must have had) so another 1/2 day of play is left! Now I can finish the game perhaps. Had another couple of good goes yesterday but didn't get any further

Distracted by a visit to the Maker Faire today and now off to work, so no chance to put in another round before it ends, so congrats TRBB!

What a great game and what a technical achievement in 1983!

Sneaky trbb takes the win on the last day from Deteacher! Thanks to 3rd place slx for keeping it interesting too. I've enjoyed Spelunker a lot, pretty good game, the other (original) version looks the same but I did notice the death sound effect was different - need to play it more to see if there is anything else :ponder:

Caverns of Khafka won by CaptainClassic was a great bonus game and Tree Surgeon is still fun despite being a prototype. The first screens are good, on the 2nd screens I guess the code was not finished. If you want to see all the damage start it on Advanced and just park your guy somewhere!

If you missed this round or want more time then in Round 10 there will be a "Catch-up and Improve Scores"

Thanks for playing everyone :thumbsup:
