Hi, I played on High.
This game has bonus rounds a bigger balloons. Might be enhanced over the arcade original?
I reached level 4 round 4 with a score of 83,340. Level 2 is harder than level 3 in this game? Level 4 round 1 has great music. Level 4 round 3 is difficult - not many blocks to manouvre around and there is frog and onion and snake ball! No continues were used - using a continue results in score reset to 0 anyway. My favourite Q Bert game ??
Hi, I played on rubber key Spectrum 48k, speccytape + ipod, file from WorldOfSpectrum, not the actual original release tape itself.
This game features 3 ball multiball and independent flippers. I reached multiball to get this score. I've included a 10 second video on my youtube channel of the game running.
Only in Big Bear Mode, the game over screen says You've Been Bovvered.
I think only the white robot bear (from level 3 onwards) can harm you in Baby Bear Mode, but I'm not even sure if that is true. Baby Bear Mode is just for practising moving around the platforms and learning how to get big bonuses, collision detection all switched off, no harm can come to your bear from the bovver bears, but you can crash into a dropped battery with your car and lose a life this way!
Only in Big Bear Mode, the game over screen says You've Been Bovvered. In the practise mode called Baby Bear Mode (where no bear can harm you at all!) the game over screen says Are You A Bear Or A Mouse?
Played on speed Normal
Real hardware, I'll show my Spectrum again in next submission
I reached 'Ore Refinery'
Hi, it's percentage minus minutes, 53-9=44
Hi, I use an Ipod with volume at maximum. I use the IOS App 'Speccy Tape'. I upload tzx (or tap) file to speccy tape which autoconverts the file to wav format - all done on the Ipod.
Added 13 second video clip on my youtube channel to show screen running.
Took a quick photo with my Ipod a few seconds before game loaded and Joe Blade title screen displayed! This game is played while the main game is loaded from cassette.
Category error? Should be emulated.
Category error?, skipping voting for now.
I reached level 7. Level 5 is hard, but I battled through it, then memorised half of the barriers at the end of level 5, to finally get to the end of the level. After receiving a big bonus, I played through level 6 which was fairly breezy (just polygon shapes swirling around and no barriers at end). Level 7 ramped up the difficulty again, and I copped it midway thru level 7!
This is the cassette loader game for Joe Blade!
Maze 4 layout
Maze 3 layout.
Maze 2 layout!
Maze layout proves this is Maze 2.
Maze layout proves this is Maze 3.
My favourite version of Jet Pac.
Played on Intermediate setting.
Blue 6 at top left shows skill level. If you change skill level, score resets to 0.
At 13:58 you completed the level then died, whaaat?! Stll voted yes, of course. Never seen this 'bug' in Uridium before though.
Most likely a hacked trained file was used. This score should not stand. Please resubmit using the original cassette or disk, or a clean Sanxion (no cheats hacks) file, thanks.
I don't believe your emulated score for this game now either, that should be taken down and resubmitted! There are hacked trained bogus c64 game files everywhere...just recently gtibel on here used a hacked file to play Zynaps and needless to say the submitted original score was incorrect - he then resubmitted a correct clean file Zynaps score. Please do the same for Sanxion (emulated and real hardware), thanks.
The problem is at 5:46 exactly, you shoot, your score balloons up, you get countless free lives, THIS IS A HACKED TRAINED file you have used here, THIS IS NOT THE ORIGINAL GAME! Try loading the original game from cassette or disk. Compare your video with others on youtube. I can't believe you guys are voting yes!
Hi, I voted yes, but I don't think I should have done because this doesn't look like Atari 2600! Looks more like Colecovision or Ti99-4a or something!
No way is this legit, score jumps crazy at 5:30, voting no, sorry.
Played on Intermediate level.
The spaceship landing screen after every 4 chase screens is great (each one different).
Did not use the warp gate on level 1. By level 5 I had around 7 lives, but on level 8 I lost many lives in quick succession because I mistakenly shot the big star looking ship which split up into pieces and took me out quickly! Game has good difficulty curve - both the main levels and the inner sanctum (maze) get progressively harder. Glad I read the manual first too :)
Will upload a gameplay video on my youtube channel today where I score more than 300 points.
I think a photo is enough because if I want to change the maze the score disappears.
Hi, this doesn't look right...you played for 3 minutes but not level 1...it's not possible to get this type of score when starting at level 1 on this game and playing for 3 minutes! (See derschmu video of this on youtube). Am I wrong? I am tired today...could be.
7 percent of game completed. Psyche is just an energy gauge which can be replenished by shooting droids. Psyche allows you to fly temporarily.
Hi, yes it's a 128k machine. The extra memory comes in handy for example on Gryzor where the game is loaded pretty much in one go from cassette, whereas on a 464 (64k) machine the game loads stages in separately.
Items collected = 37 Just coincidence that I visited 37 rooms to get to this score!
I reached level 4 round 3. I didn't enter all initials in time - was searching for the Enter button until I realised it's keypress 1 to enter initial.
Hi, I like to edit my videos so that they don't get long winded.
Hi, I had enough at that point...didn't want to do the reverse gravity stages, maybe some other time.
Hi, I was deleting videos but I've decided recently to keep all videos up on my channel, starting with BBC Micro. I made another (better) video of this game, so I deleted this one.
I have a video of this which I will be uploading soon.
Played on Expert level (initial speed fast). It is only possible to complete challenge racks on expert level (as stated in the manual).
Score at 3:16 in the video
Hi, I think youtube have lessened copyright restrictions on music in videos. Also, almost every tune I can think of is now available to listen to on youtube - this wasn't the case 12 months ago.
Hi, I got to the snow level.
Hi, yes I used two CX-52 joysticks (no joystick coupler).
Hi, i got it from ebay usa, seller : glennfre. I use a big heavy duty voltage converter. A small one heats up too much! The small one is good for my tandy color computer 3 though. The 5200 is av composite modded - this was important because tuning it in using rf could have been a real problem. Finally, the colours can be a little different on the screen to how they would be in north america.
Nice - thanks for showing the box and cart
Excellent - There are a lot of fireflies to get past in order to beat this score.
Absolutely brilliant! Another top score. This game laughs at all the platform mediocrity on NES! Commodore 64 > NES!!
Only on Advanced level are there 4 sno-bees on screen simultaneously.
I was recording video for this, but the video camera (ipad 3!) lost camera position at around the 8k mark! However I had another go at recording video and scored on video more than 17k - I will upload to my youtube channel in the next hour. I apologise for the lack of game sound in the video.
At around wave 23 I lost all the humans. Then after dealing with the next wave or two, all the humans came back! Every time I smart-bombed a whole bunch of stuff, I received a free life!
I reached level 5, round 1.
The Dragon has graphic modes like the BBC Micro, but the number of modes and colours are more limiting. In the above mode example, the colours available are green, blue, red and yellow but I think these colours can only be used in the main window. The border will always be green. Another mode exists with 4 different colours where the border will always be buff (off white). Then there is a hi res mode where the PAL Dragon can only display either black and white or green and dark green. A north american NTSC Dragon, like the CoCo can include a few extra colours in the hi res black white mode through NTSC screen trickery (artifact colours).
The first two maze variations have escape holes. The third (shown) does not - good spot! I have only got to the fourth maze once. The third maze is tough, and you have to do it 3 times (I think) before you get to the fourth maze. It's a really great pacman type game though, the best on CoCo 2, and speeds up as you progress as it should. It also includes the intermission music from the arcade game, but not the intermission cut scenes!
The most expensive game in a photo on highscore.com?! And wico joysticks. Cool!
1983 Chuckie Egg. The original and best is on Dragon 32!
Played on Normal setting.
The lead in the picture is a headphone extension lead.
Hi, Mastertronic released this game
Yup, you caught me!
I wouldn't like to meet that fish in a schwimmbad
Played on Advanced setting
Good stuff, well done...that difficulty spike around 14k in this game, ouch.
Wow, that's great.
Thanks, I'd heard about Tower Toppler but not the NES game. I think this C64 game was called Tower Toppler in North America as well.
Great soundtrack. If your score was up for this game, mine would be second place instead of first. The high score name entry for this game is painful.
Thanks for letting me know.
Thanks :) I had a lot of fun playing it.
Makes Rambo and Commando feel like a sunday stroll through the park. (!! Zzap review)
Awesome score! Your wico joystick must have had quite a workout. Did you rush and attack?
Hi, There are 15 additional rooms exclusive to Dragon. 12 of these exclusive rooms are shown in this video. The other 3 are Observatory (west of Nomen Luni), Games Room (west of Emergency Generator), and The Pub (east of Off Licence).
Medium difficulty selected
Thanks very much
Trivia : I think Joust for Atari ST 1985 was by the same people that released Buzzard Bait on Tandy CoCo and Dragon computers in 1983!
Vector Patrol should be great, done by the same author as Vectrexians and Vector Pilot. I've never owned a Vectrex but I am impressed with the homebrew releases for it. Interesting console!
Only Advanced has a threshold of 75% (shown at top of screen)
Loose carts (program paks) are similar in cost to Atari 5200 and quite easy to find. Cassette and disk based games come up on ebay less often, and costs vary.
Played at the default starting level (L=4)
Only Skilled has a threshold of 65% and score is removed from screen if skill level is changed.
Only Advanced has a threshold of 75% (shown at top of screen) and if a different skill level is selected, the score is removed from the screen.
Only Expert has a threshold of 85% (shown at top of screen) and if a different skill level is selected the score is removed from the screen.
Expert/A mode has shorter rope.
I don't think this game uses the difficulty switches.
Hi, I have posted a score for Novice/B. In Expert mode, the creatures move around faster and the gem eaters have a shorter munching time.
Left difficulty switch set to A (shorter rope)
Difficulty switches were set to A, though I don't think this game uses them at all.
Thanks, I usually edit videos before posting to youtube. Thanks for voting for me.
