Over the years since my [mispent] youth I had managed to forget what a pain the erm, neck! that damned Pteradactyl (What do you mean I spelt that wrong? They're extinct, so what's gonna come pecking on my door to complain?)

 

I'll start the ball [egg] rolling (mmmmmmm, egg rolls!!!! [drools a little]) with a modest 44,850. I'd supply a screen shot, but it's nearly 400 meg - having problems setting my camera to a lower res.

 

I think I should retire now, whilst I'm at the top - nobody likes a has-been!

I just couldn't get into Centipede last week. Joust, on the other hand: 198,200!

And for my 2nd go: 82700

 

But just getting used to this gamepad (keyboard & mouse operated FPS weren't big when I were a lad!) so I'm expecting a definite improvement over the next 2 weeks

I always seem to crap out just before the 100K thresholds. Oh well, 400K, here I come. :)

Well this is where I drop to last place... I'm not even going to post my score (unless it improves VASTLY)

C'mon don't be shy, plus we all like to see lowly scores to make us feel superior :D

 

Todays go 272,400, got to wave 25 but then the egg wave had a pterry so not sure how fair that was... pterry 4 trbb 1 (the only time I killed him I was in the off screen invisible zone under the platform... hmmm maybe that's it, just hide off screen :ponder: )

Yeah, when you get up there in wave numbers, Pterry tends to show up on non-pterry waves. That really sucks. I've killed her a few times (always by accident.) If she's barreling down on me and I know she's gonna get me, I'll turn around, facing her and hope for the best. 9 times out of 10, she gets me, but there's nothing more satisfying than taking her down that one time. :twisted:

:) Moving along: 170,650 my best ever!

 

I love Joust :love: I'm playing the hell out of it this time since I got "robbed" when my 5200 cart died when we did that one. :sad:

Time for you and orpheus to 'show and tell' ;)

 

After losing 7 men trying to avoid the pterry on level 18, I decided to go for the old bird with some success (and some failure... plenty of failure) but got to level 26 or so 311,290 :) post-19705-0-64762700-1303318200_thumb.jpg

Had one go where I materialised next to another bird on the same nest! Just checking the docs and there's 500pts for catching an egg in mid air :roll: (eggs... roll icon? nevermind...)

Time to get back up upon the horse..er..um--Flying Ostrich :P I guess we'll have to hunt for treasure, in mysterious castle dungeons, while running away from monsters, so we can find the golden keys, which unlock the secret doors, which lead to who knows where, before running out of ammo and energy, some other time...WHEW!:
