Thank you. :)

I'm already getting some good high scores and I look forward to having some competition. I see quite a few games are blank so I'm going to fill them in.

Great run, the box point amounts seems kind of silly with the 50k bonuses.  1556 boxes for 15560 points.  Anywho, yes vote from me :)

@DeadZergling: That does seem kinda silly because my failed ending has a much higher score than someone who completed the game.

you read the rules differently than i did, since it says level one, I thought it just wanted the score from level one.  You read it as the score starting from level one.  I like your interpretation better, I always wondered why they were tracking the levels individually on this game.  anyway, great run, best ive ever managed is 400 and something thousand.  i may come back to this one in the future.  one of my favorite puzzle games

@speedy4759123: Oh dear, I never thought of it like that before. From what I've seen on YT, the game goes up to 30 levels but I only managed 13 levels so my next goal is to reach the end. Palamedes is a GREAT game, I love it loads. It doesn't seem to have a lot of eyes on it, I was quite pleased when James Rolfe (AVGN) did a quick video on it. I'd say that Palamedes is my favourite NES/Famicom game.

that video is the only way i ever heard of it. I was lucky to find a beat up copy for 8$ on ebay, otherwise Id have never got to play,but im glad I did. It proves you can do a puzzle game without having to do dr mario, or yet another tetris clone.  Its a great game.

@speedy4759123: I discovered the game in a bootleg 300 in 1 GBA cartridge. At some point, I tried all of the games and then played Palamedes. I first played it in 2016 and got myself the NES cartridge as a collectable until I could play it on the Famicom via NES to Famicom adapter but it turned out someone swapped the board for Startropics 2. I was gutted so I placed it in an empty cartridge and got a Famicom version instead. I tried contacting the eBay shop but it seems that they're gone. I probably wasn't the only duped customer. ????
