i'm new to this, so i included a photo taken from my phone of the screen as well.

My real name is 'Dom' and evidence that this is me by linking back to where i have also shared this on Facebook's Commodore Amiga group!

Welcome aboard! smiley That is indeed a very good score. I'll have to have a go at this game soon. I remember reading about it as a kid, but never got my hands on a copy.

A couple of recommendations to help make your scores gain legitimacy. Firstly, I suggest entering your initials (DOM) in your profile. This will make it much easier for people to know that screenshots belong to you. Secondly, recording videos will really help to build trust and get your scores lots of yes votes. It's very easy to record game sessions for emulated platforms (much easier than the real thing), so people will want to see videos for really high scores.

I'm voting yes on this one. yes

thanks for the welcome guys - i'm not aware that FS-UAE has a video recording mode?  (the most recent posts i have checked on it, suggest not) and I must confess to being quite tight on HD space, considering a game like this takes quite a long time to play that far into!!


I will certainly add some kind of name tag to the edge of my laptop or something though, and maybe record a few minutes of gameplay on minie, or my wifes phone if i can....

Guys, this is another game I would strongly recommend is played using the WHDLoad installed version,

There are two major bugs on the original which affect scores (fixed on the WHDLoad version)

1- when entering a score you can actually "delete" more than the three Characters you enter for your name!! This allows you to go all the way back and actually modify how your score appears (!!!)


2- when (if) you complete the game there is no way to see your final score! The outro plays and you are taken straight back to the title screen!! This is fixed by the WHD version taking you to the scoreboard instead and it showing END as the round number.
