Let's wind down the year with a fun competition.  Up for grabs to the winner is... a prize! (If you need to know what it is in order to play and have fun, then you've missed the point of all of this and should go reconsider what you are doing here with ancient electronic magic devices!)

 

Ground rules :)

1. *** UPDATE *** Grab the v4 rom from the first post in the release thread: 

 

2. On the title screen, press OPTION and select Game Mode: Advanced

3. Play until out of lives and post your scores below, as shown on the GAME OVER screen:

3. Competition closes at midnight, 24th Decemeber (In **MY** timezone - GMT + 10:30) and the winner will be announced the next time I'm at the keyboard sober enough to do so after this time.

 

 

Good luck, and may the best space-ship flying, zombie slaying, bug killing gardener win!

Damn, I wish I had a skunkboard now. There isn’t any other way to participate except with the game drive and skunkboard right?

Unfortunately, correct.  Not going into who or why (again).

Play on, those who can!

If it was made out of pure gold I’d be willing to think about it, I get that it’s a prototype but that price is insane..

That’s no problem, I really appreciate you searching for one! I’ve been looking for one for a while now but I guess I’ll just have to wait until the V5 board are ready from @cubanismo

I want in!!  How do i get this game to my Skunkboard from a Macbook Pro running Catalina?  Is there a program that anyone knows of that might work? 

 

If nothing else I'll see if I can get some builds LinkoVitch patiently built for me running on my Catalina machine sometime today.

(55 minutes later)

 

Yep, got JCP running with Catalina now.  Sending instructions by PM.

Had a report of the game crashing around the 60-70k score mark. 

I've not managed to get that high myself, but I have sent the person a new test ROM which I hope will fix the problem.  I'll make it public once confirmed. 
What is causing it appears to be a rare edge-case, so in the meantime keep playing and posting!

I don't think I made it past 47k the first few times I played it but I see the Doc needs some competition so I'm going to have to give it another shot or two ;)

I only noticed 1 thing I thought was weird.  If I had a wall of mushrooms on the LH side the biopede would snake down vertically which is expected.  However if I cleared the mushrooms it seemed as if the biopede would go into straight down mode in the same spot the mushrooms were previously for the rest of my game - level change or not.  This happened on 2 of my games only on the RH side.
