Now I need to learn how to play Time Tunnel because I have no idea whatsoever.

 

Yeah it took me a while to figure out what you're supposed to do when I first played it. First level, you back into the railroad cars. The next one, you pick up people at the train stations and you drop them off in the level after that. It was tricky to get used to controlling the track switches and avoiding the other train and enemies, but it grew on me after a while.

I really love Time Tunnel, it's one of these early charming arcade games, plus something differet from the usual styles too. And that's as well, coz I'm really not into the pac-style munching gameplay....

Time Tunnel 29,810 30,320 31,700 38,940 Figured it best to keep my marginally-improving scores in one entry.

S.Baz I have to humbly take my hat off to you. Achieving a six-figure score in Super Pac-Man has got to be a pretty rare thing. It's difficult in categories Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man never were: it's non-intuitive, Pac-Man moves slow as balls when he's not in super mode (and too fast and out of control at super-speed), grouping monsters is difficult, and there are more objectives than in the originals. So congratulations! You may want to take a look at Twin Galaxies to see if you could get on the books there (SPM was never that popular so you might have a chance).

Thanks Warlord!

My scores took a boost when I found you can extend Super Pac-mode by eating power pellets (which also allows you to eat the ghosts much more easily).

yes it is an odd game to get good at. I've gotten into it 3 or 4 different times now & this is the best I've done (on either system).

 

---also, many thanks to me playing Super Pac-Man on 7800 in the past, and also to me watching oyamafamily's videos of 7800 SPM.

 

[edit]

Super Pac: 134,780

Time Tunnel: 66,070

 

So what's the most evil entity in Time Tunnel? The monsters, the other train, the cows, or the moving ufo train station?
