Europe is about as hard as I expected.

Decided to do some lap practice in Africa for points.

Just found you on Twitch, would be cool to see some Amiga gaming live, glad you are doing that.

Thanks! It's great fun. I spent Monday evening playing through Fantastic Dizzy and will attempt to finish it off next Monday. I'll have another crack at Super Hang-On tomorrow night too although I know deep down, it's not a game I'm destined to do well at (as much as I enjoy it).


I also had the old 'run out of time at the checkpoint' feeling...

Happy with that run, not sure I'll be able to top it. I'll see if I can optimize my Asia runs a bit next.

^ That's a nice jump from 10 to 21M in Africa.

Biggest improvement came from Africa. Much cursing happened in birdland!

I'll hopefully be able to improve on Asia, America and Europe over the course of the week.

Traffic is a big part of this game. It can be frustrating but always addictive.

Small improvement on Asia. That track is brutal!

Good luck with Europe. I'm gonna get stuck into it more this week. Once this game clicks the scores come with it and lots of people seem to be getting to that point now which is cool.

Very first attempt on each , not got much time at the moment, but just wanted to get a score in.

240333 + 91974 + 170300 + 87392 = 589999

The only way I'm going to make a difference to this is if I can finish Africa with more than 5.4 seconds left.

Africa: 13,842,700
Asia: 889,467

Some of the scores posted in this round are insane. I know I can do better but I think I'll be some way off winning this round.

Completion! (barely)

I was going to abandon this run after several collisions but decided to play it out. Even on the last stage my speed went near zero on the final long bend. Snuck it behind the goalposts on the last second!

I'm glad I've spent the time getting into this. I'd originally dismissed this as a poor port in comparison to the Megadrive version which I played back in the day. A bit of light competition certainly helps getting into it as well, and some of the scores achieved by other folks are phenomenal!
