Apologies this one is clearly C64.  Removing score.

@Mantalow:

Thanks Mantalow - just looked that one up & definitely didn't know about it.  It looks like a good copy-cat clone of Gauntlet. :)  There were a lot of games that borrowed the principals of Gauntlet back then & Ranarama was a good example of those that only borrowed the ideas but created a different look & feel.

One of the best Gauntlet clones for home computers. :)

@Sixx:

Yep, thanks.  I must have hit the wrong category.  I'll remove this one.

@TheTrickster:

Thanks, Trickster.  I'll kill this one off & re-upload (making certain) before adding it back in.  Youtube has done this a couple of times to me recently. :(

LOL, I don't actually have that much N64/Atari 8-bit/C64 in the back catalog, alas. :(

Thanks, Ben.  "Stay left" is the best advice I can give. :)

I achieve the 2048 tile and that resets the game (I used the "Never reset score" option prior to starting).  Just in case the "Never reset score" is a problem, I terminate the recording there.

Scoring based on Frankie's comments in his submission for 43 at http://highscore.com/scores/Commodore64Emulated/180/10561

2x 2-0 wins = 2x20 = 40

A score of 19 on the round the clock challenge = 19

40+19 = 59.

 

There's a significant gap between the "cup" rounds and the round-the-clock challenge as I was reading Frankie's notes to understand what it was that was needed.  For the record, the round-the-clock challenge is game 2, not game 3 as in Frankie's notes.

It was Kernzy who tipped me off about the place via YouTube. :)

@S.BAZ:

Thanks S.BAZ. :)  This is footage from 2002 - I knew I could play the game reasonably indefinitely (an extra life after the set of three levels) but had become bored.  So I aimed to discover any max/rollover... Had a couple of missed attempts before this.  Turns out this one rolls over.

Thanks TRB. :D  While I know a lot of people know me from other sites, this is a new site for me and there are, of course, going to be people that have different ideals.  I just have to get used to how things work here too. :)

@derek: Thanks for the tip, alas this is old footage & the hardware is boxed up in the loft.  I don't understand how a disconnected picture somehow supports direct capture.  I guess I've got some learning about expectations around here. :)

@Frankie: Yeah, I was like that when I had 8 at first.  I think 10 may be possible with some very careful "parking".

@DakotaKid: I dunno how to make direct capture any better attributed when there's no-where to put a name in the game.  If you'd like to check out more to help make your mind up, I post almost everything (muted) to YouTube (follow the link in the above or my Videopac playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41YqUDX7k_g&list=PL_2Hq7eC7-gaL70tNgoJ0GsjljApS9wmQ ) and submit most stuff to Twin Galaxies with audio (where available) - the full footage which contains this is at http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/144211 .  Let me know what you'd expect otherwise.

Note: this is "Game 0".  There are other games available via the numeric keys but 0 is the first, I guess.
