Cosmic Commuter: 10,540

Crazy Climber: 18,300

Cosmic Creeps: 11,300

Bonus (Copter Commander): 728

 

The three "Cosmic..." games are ones I never had as a kid. The homebrew game could be addicting. We'll see. The contest is young. Hopefully I can improve upon these scores while there is still time.

I will try to break my Crazy Climber record (I have done much higher as a kid over 500k) but I sprained my wrist 2 weeks ago.....

and a healthy wrist is required to break that record....

and some lucky  (I do mean very lucky) window openings and closings....

But I will try!

No pain ... no gain!

for anyone who hasn't played Cosmic Creeps:  your score will start over at the beginning of the next level but it keeps adding up.  When I first played this I kept thinking the game was over every time I passed the 1st level!

Good - a little more improvement. The improvement in Cosmic Commuter came when I discovered I could shoot the sky traffic and clouds. I had read the instructions, so I don't know why I had somehow neglected/forgotten to use the fire button until this early-morning's discovery.

 

Cosmic Commuter: 27490

Crazy Climber: 72800

Cosmic Creeps: 16200 (no improvement)

I only improved in one game this time: Cosmic Commuter. I will also agree with at least one other in this forum that Cosmic Creeps is veritable shovelware. Crazy Climber is my favorite to play. I hope to improve my score on that one next.

 

Cosmic Commuter: 60000
