You can get the instructions for Dragon's Descent in my developer thread - including some tips for getting higher scores!

 

 

As noted above, you should set the game to "Infinite Mode" if you're playing for score - the title screen will have an infinity symbol on it:

I haven't been around much lately.   Been working a lot.  But now I'm on vacation for the next 2 weeks, so you can expect to see a lot more from me.  :)

What is it with games where the most dangerous enemy is the wall?

 

Pac-Man: 25,900

Seaweed Assault: 4,847

Dragon's Descent: 2,974

I'm not sure I really liked these.  Pac-Man is alright for what it is (although the AI seems wonky sometimes).  Seaweed Assault is a nice concept but I ended dying of a hand cramp long before the difficulty got me.  Dragon's Decent is a decent Gauntlet type game, but doesn't really make sense for the high score club IMHO.  Still, I did my best.

Pac-Man 4K: 7,600 (Just warming up, as I don't have Pac-Man fever yet.)

 

Dragon's Descent: 312 (Yuk! What kind of game is this supposed to be?)

 

Seaweed Assault:  2,543 (I wouldn't mind if the controls weren't so loose.)

Vocelli:

 

Pac-Man 4K: 19580

Really a GREAT game. Put together well and challenging.

 

Seaweed Assault: 2584

Takes a while to get started on this game and then it kicks in. One mistake and it is game over. I like it.

 

Dragon's Decent: 1592

Not really a game I play for a high score. Just trying to get further in the game. Right now I am stuck on the mid-boss.

I go with Diamonds if I want to score high and I go with Fire-power and Health if I want to try to defeat the mid-boss. 

I am '0-9' on that mid boss. Any suggestions

For that boss I just ran around in a circle.  There's a bit of luck involved I guess.  I ended dying trying to take out one of those shadow guys on a lower level.
