Would it be considered cheating to play the first horribly slow levels at, say, 80fps?

Thought so. Not falling to sleep during its first levels is the biggest challenge in this game.

Actually it's quite fun. Just usually takes a long time to get a good run. Mostly because of the slow speed at the start.

Had to restart countless times until I got this:

You must do 2 loops.
After the end (the final picture above), you restart the game but your score is not reset.
So theorically you can make a inifinite score !
The problem is just the focusing (the transition a hellish speed to snail speed) and of course the last levels, the purple ghosts are fast, too fast; it requires reflexes and luck
I tried another game just after and I failed...
My score was not bad though, 940k.

Sorry for interrupting, do you use a real Amiga or emulator rexsu?

Do you have a preference? Also, do you use a pad/joystick/keyboard? I'm just curious to how the heck you do it.

Tomorrow I'll have a couple of tries again (Pacmania is addicting). Maybe I can break 1 million and/or finish the game. I definitely won't be able to reach 1.5 million though...

I use the emulator, often laziness .
However I prefer a real machine for 50 fps games because my LCD monitor is horrible for scrolling
I also like the 1200 because I can play with a joystick (Konix) which is often better for gaming than a joypad.
For example I used WinUAE for Pacmania with a joypad but I think the best solution would be to play with a joystick, specially for the latest levels. The reaction time is better with this kind of controller !

For Pinball games I use the 1200 for two reasons, the scrolling (see above) and the keyboard.

Ah ok, so the A1200 with a Konix. I might have to get myself one of those Konix controllers, maybe we all should, it'll give us a chance!
