I am guessing just under 2 hours.   From the third inning of the Rockies - Giants game until about 10:10pm.

 

i had to try to take pictures during the game because I was afraid of what would happen when I hit level 100.  

 

What’s crazy is is that I’m still not sick of this game.

I had to give it one more go.   

 

Score: 1006960

Level: Unknown - went from A-Y (with J,K,Q and Z and maybe other letters missing) and then into graphics characters.

Lives Remaining: 108

 

I had to see what happens after going through all the letters on level.   Then i had to go to see what happens when you go over 100 lives.    Then i had to go over 1E6 points.   The game never crashed.   

 

Needless to say, I reached the “tipping point” where I had every level figured out.   As i repeated them, i refined it even more.   I know PixelPendant is very near the tipping point.  I bet if he played 1-2 more times he could go as long as he wanted to.

 

I’m not sure if I will play any more this month.   Thanks again to Rasmus for the awesome game.

Whoa that's insane! My personal best is like level 8 😁. I could have made levels 20-29 more difficult than 10-19 by adding more enemy balls, but I had no idea anyone would get that far.

I noticed that on levels 10-19 there were balls on the vertical scrolling levels.    Those went away on levels 20+.

 

it took a while to sink in, but I discovered that you could “pause” the game by stopping just before clearing X6 or X9 vertical scrolling levels.

Wow!  It is a very fun game, I need to practice it more to do at least 1 cycle and it is already a new month!

31040 Stage 3.  

 

It it appears I have a console with a problem with the joystick port.   I can’t shoot to the left with the joystick.   I’m able to move left though.   I’ve swapped joysticks and swapped joystick port adaptors.   I’m using a backup console with no F18a now.   

 

Any ideas?   It might be time for me to learn about the joystick port.

Hmm.  Haven't had any success getting this game to run on my system (F18A+NanoPEB+FinalGROM).  Just outputs garbage character patterns to a blue screen for three or four seconds, then freezes.

Works on my system without an F18A.  I do have the NanoPEB + FinalGROM.

It's strange because the balls were supposed to keep appearing on any levels starting with 10, and my tests show they do appear after level 20. I cannot play to level 20 myself, however. 

 

If there is an issue I'm thinking of releasing a new version, and perhaps to add even more balls after level 20.

If you would like a tester, I’d be happy to try it out.

If I have the 32k+TIPI plugged in I also get garbage on the screen. It works without my 32k, thus only Finalgrom and a Speech Synth. plugged in.

But I can only shoot left and right, but not up and down (not sure if I have an earlier version, but will try the .zip file here)

In Classic99 I can load the files (and also see that I cannot shoot when moving up and down and only can shoot left to right)

 

but I see a difference, the file on my FinalGrom has option 2 "Tutankham" but the .zip file has in the main titlescreen option 2

That's normal for Tutankham.

Thanks for the tip.  Will try without NanoPEB (and hence 32K).

I also have to disconnect my PEB for reliable play. Sometimes i can play the first level with the PEB connected, but usually not.
