Methinks capehorn is going to prove rather hard to beat.

Nice to see a bit more activity now

That's exactly what happened this time. Otherwise my score would've been a bit higher:



54,126,405

(Automatic transmission)


Btw., here's a guide for the final track:

Capehorn, why don't you post your votes for the next round? Your vote will be deciding one

Well I did see the thread and thought about posting, but despite being a big Amiga user for many years, I couldn't actually think of all that many good games that have scoring systems that haven't been played in the last couple of years. It seems all my favourites have been picked recently!

And a part of why I read this board is to get to know games that I never played when I was younger. I've never even heard of Qwak, so that will do for me!

Still not quite managed it - the first section with the time pods I can breeze through now but the second one always gets me.
