You found a good way to dodge Medusa's shots? Well played.

Once you know how to do everything it's not hard to complete. Quick too. I find the Hydra and the spikes in the tunnels the toughest. The last stage and Dameron are actually pretty easy.

Made a bunch of dumb mistakes anyway (killed by a damn snake) and used 2 continues, so got half the score you'd expect. Glad I made it through anyway. Could probably 1cc it with some more practice.

Liked this a lot. It's dated in some ways but the variety and great look made it worth finishing.

Just duck. When she has fired three shots you can jump. The shield is really unnecessary.

The snakes drain a lot of energy which is hard to avoid. That makes it hard to complete without continues.

Or maybe the shield is not that useless, I'll try it against the snakes.

Confused the pharaoh's headdress with the eye of horus when I reached Anubis.

First tries at Paperboy:

Breaking the property of non-subscribers really does pay off.

Getting close to the end of the month so I'm gonna give this a few more goes. Trick seems to be - learn to dodge, break stuff, and don't run out of time on the dirt course.

Made it. And so close to manossg.

Not sure whether you get better points for delivering or smashing everything. I abandoned certain houses in the last 2 days because I was low on lives and it was easier to knock over people. Sue me.

Here's a completion, too, but the score is poor:

But I'm satisfied with having got to the end.

Very playable, but very hard to play well. This is my best score by a mile.

It's not got the most fluid controls so it's definitely tough to master.

John, you broke a lot of stuff but lost a lot of customers so maybe that does make the difference to the score, and it doesn't just encourage everyone to only destroy the neighbourhood. Socially responsible game . Still came close.

That does make a difference but I think it was mainly due to not getting to the finish line every day.

Here's an improvement although I didn't get to the end:



125,400

Would've been ~140k if I had finished Sunday.

Could've been better but it's enough:

Every once in a while this game's gfx freeze for a split second. That makes the gameplay vid look like savestates were used - but I didn't.

I've had the same little glitch John. And yes, I didn't notice it in your vid, but not getting to the finish line makes a big difference.

Yes, that was in time.

I think I could get maybe 145k but not 150 - well done manossg!

Glad to hear it's not related to my system.

Well, even if it wasn't, it was good, nice fun!

I think I could get even more than that, I had only one perfect delivery in this go and I missed quite a few of the bonus stage targets. And now I've got an itch to do the most difficult stage!
