Ok, I played Snowplow again and pressed Start after each level. It tries to load the next level, but either my SIO2SD is not compatible, or the image file is corrupt because it loads a level that consists of about ten squares of straight road, then you're finished. This is repeated for every level, which means after the first, original level the game becomes trivial. Probably something has gone wrong at my end, so no reason to try to post any additional scores.
Edit: Here is another round of games I've tried. Some of them won't start, I don't know if the files I downloaded are faulty, if it is another SIO2SD issue, if it is my PAL 130XE or something else at fault. I might try one or two in Altirra eventually, but I think I've tried enough games when it comes to bonus points (as I'm outside top 5 prior to this round).
Spycat - 200 pts
I'm not familiar with this game since before. My first association was with the cartoon Andy Capp, on which there once was a computer game. From what I could tell, this is not really my type of game, but it looks and plays nice. The instructions suggested the controls are more complicated than they appear to be.
The Monk - killed 6 monsters in one go
I will admit I haven't looked up any sort of instructions about this game so I may have misjudged what it is about. It doesn't seem to have any scoring, or perhaps you get a score when you clear all the monsters (it doesn't say how many there are). Big, bright graphics using a wide range of different hues which is unlike what I'm used to see in Atari 8-bit games. Bonus points for randomly generated map on every game.
Time Pilot - 35400 pts, level 3
While I've played various versions of this game before, I didn't remember the particular type of steering. Also regarding the viewport, it isn't that small or low resolution. Many other ports used the right hand side for the score display, so the play area isn't that much more zoomed out IIRC. Sometimes a small graphic glitch right at the start, but it seems to play well. The high score table however is entirely botched up in this version, which is a shame. At least two of the homebrews I've tried had corrupted high score routines and many don't display score at all. How hard can it be to remember the highest score and compare with the current?
Twin Cars - 76 pts
Nice one that uses left and right on two joysticks to dodge objects on two parallel lanes. I used my Starplex combined with a Tac-2, for this purpose it worked well. I suppose you could be two players in a cooperative mode as well.
Udders - 23 tanks
Bah.. what a sexist game! I almost get upset by playing it and start to get stereotype thoughts if the Polish in general have this sexist approach to life. My dear Cowthilde character cries in a corner, she doesn't want her udders pulled hard. Also I don't know if the game is supposed to be possible to finish, or if you just play until one cow dies from having too much milk. Yes, I am serious about my dislike!
Warsaw City+ - 82900 pts
Another of those Gumshoe / Who Dares Wins / whatever games, this I understand is a modified version of an earlier game. When you finish two games within 9 minutes and reached to level 10 and 16 in that amount of play, it suggests the game is short and shallow. Not displaying the score after the game is finished is another weakness.
Wytyczne rybne - finished one fish
This is a memory type game, where you get to see four slices of a fish for a few seconds, then are supposed to locate those slices again and place them at the right position. You get three lives. Quite hard in the beginning before you have memorized the different types of fish slices available. Fun graphics makes it stand out, but I would have wanted a bit more like Mastermind gameplay, in which that you got to know how many or even which parts you got wrong and a couple attempts on the same fish before you start over.
Zombie Attack - cured 4 people before glitches
Yet again I'm not sure if it is my fault or the programmer, but after a while I entered some kind of building to get statistics. Once I got out of the building, most of the graphics were garbled, making the game very hard to play and not pretty. As I wasn't super into it before as well, I decided to move on to the next game.
Zoo Food - finished the game
This is a puzzle game. At first I thought it was Memory but you should combine each animal with the type of food it would eat. Since you don't know which types of animals are behind the bricks, you lose lives right away just by trying out combinations. Also it turns out this is some kind of demo that only has one level, so even if you manage to clear it, there is nothing more to it. The idea and implementation are nice, but I would think a lot of gameplay details are missing to make it a worthwhile game. Then again I haven't looked up if a fuller version is under development or something.
