Great video John, I had to laugh around the 21:50 mark, as I do this as well. :0 I notice you didnt get 100% on any level, and even the ship, so perhaps all the levels are broken and this isnt possible.

Okay, so mastered that special technique, too.

Yes, I think so. Or did you notice any secret rooms that I might have missed (in the first three levels)?

Game completed with 5 lives left. I lost a few lives here and there but there are many extra lives during the game.
I haven't watched any videos but certainly I missed some secret room and "gems"... anyway I won't try again, so this is my best score.
I completed every level with about 65-70%, never got more than 85%.

The first 2 levels are nice, but the ship is difficult.

Nope, our plays were identical and I didnt do anything different except choose to go into the fire and lose energy on level 2, and also to fall down the pit, because perhaps if you hit the middle it bounces you back, as there must be some point to a pit of death. The only other thing I do is leap out of the minecart as soon as possible and run. You still have to wait for the 2nd cart to break the barriers, but even taking hits on the shocks I beat the other cart by about a minute and a half. Lastly, on Lemon I mention you found the safe spot with the flying levels, so will have to try that next time. I feel my skills start to wain once we get to the third week, and I start making too many mistakes. Last night I died twice on level 1!

Thanks for the insight, good idea to just abandon the cart.

That happened to me as well, had to restart a lot to get a satisfying start.

Thanks to John4p for the video, I totally lost orientation on the ship.

Still make too many mistakes thus losing lives but slowly get better.

I finished the game now, with some training it worked better than i expected at start. (I tried the game back in the day and was stuck in the ship.)

Great scores by you and lifeschool. 330 points more by lifeschool and we might've played Dimo's Quest in the next three weeks. Now it's going to be Super Cars.

This round is now finished.

The gold medal once again goes to john4p, although it couldn't have been a closer call...

...as lifeschool finished with just 330 points fewer and has to settle for silver.

Harry finished third but even he was only a couple of thousand points off top spot, so a keenly contested round once more.

In the overall standings, it's turning into a one-sided affair as john4p is now a massive 49 points ahead of liviux76. Although he still has a cushion in second, LinesMachine's strong performance means that's been cut to 17 points. It's a huge gap down to fourth place and beyond after that.

More interesting is the team contest, as two very strong Lemon displays in this round mean it's been pulled back to 6-6 and it's very much all to play for.
