Yay, I'm glad to see this get in

I have been AWOL for the last week, as my laptop broke (CPU I think), but hope to be back for the long haul (replacement laptop arrived today) and will post a score in the next few days.

C'mon team EAB!

Only got to 2-1, but not bad for my first attempt. Decided to upload a score tonight, just to get team EAB started

(I got 2 dudes faces worth around 100K each, which appeared on the first few levels)


294,220

Didnt go for the exit monsters but for game completion.

Note: You must take a screenshot latest in 8-7 as i did. I have not seen that there are any points awarded in 8-8, and you cannot leave the end sequence!

So it's not just me, I thought that might have been a bug. Weird bit of game design.

^ Can't you press ESC or something? Then snap your hi score by starting again?

Nice going Harry.

Out of interest, i looked with the UAE debugger, and the game is in a
.self bra .self
loop. However, I have not looked into the running interrupt, but it is unlikely that there is still something restarting the game.

Thanks. I play this from time to time, with varying results - there are sometimes start positions of the monsters which are simply unfair. I lost most lifes when dealing with the spinning coins having not the "space bar" upgrade. Such a coin will run towards you, then hide/stay in a certain distance, then trying to catch you. At this point you must lay a bomb and retreat, it will be repelled when touching that bomb. Unfortunately, there are 3 of them together in the last levels, and they are quite fast.

I tried pressing all the keys on the keyboard (and the fire button) and it just stays with "The End" onscreen
You should take a picture after finishing level 8-7 before entering the warp to get to the next level... however, an extra 5,000 points (or thereabouts) is available on the boss level - if you don't kill the black dude (kill him and it goes to the ending animation instantly).

Yeah, I find it funny that the level blocks and monster starting positions are random, but the icon power ups are the same on each level (and are in the same sequence - extend blast, bomb, walk through bombs, walk through walls, invincibility and extra life).
I much prefer the later DynaBlaster/Bomberman games on the Megadrive, Saturn, N64 and Dreamcast where the levels are always the same, but the icon locations are random (and you get more than one icon per level!)

Great score mailman, I'm not sure I'll get even close to that... but I'll give it a try sometime this week.


Lifeschool, cool I'll check it out at the weekend.

Thanks. Milking is the key here. But the case is that it takes some time to complete the game. Without that the game is relatively easy and quick to finish.

A week left and just four EABers have posted scores for this so far. Anyone else...?

If I get the time I'll have another shot at it. I was shocked to see that I have dropped down so far.
When milking the exits, does everyone leave it until the later levels (when you have more bombs to drop) or start milking from level 1-1?

Not the best round this one. Biscuit walked away with it and the total lack of interest from this side was a bit disappointing.

New threads and stuff to follow soon.

I totally agree, but the constant whooping that the Lemon folks are giving us this season is unlikely to inspire anyone to join in the erm... fun?

The rules were changed this season in order for people not to be discouraged by possibly impeding their teams chances of winning, but it seems to of had little effect.

Be a shame if the competition goes back to a non 'Super' format. (no eab)

Maybe the recession is playing a part in the number of people coming online. I guess we'll see in the coming months.
