<HELP> equals <PageDown> for WinUAE users. You need this to save the game (only at the allowed landmarks).

It was a difficult choice how to score this game but we decided to go with the Landmarks idea again. This time, you can save here using the in-game save.

Considering the "beast" used for playing (aspire one), can I play the OCS version instead of the AGA one ?

Aspire One has 1.6 GHz. The AGA version should run well on an older WinUAE version. Just don't use cycle exact emulation.

Yes, but... A1200 games are all jerky with this netbook (some more than others). Using 4.0.1.
Just to give you an idea : with Exile, one second (in game, top right of the screen) is 3 seconds for the Windows' clock.
Better results with "Approximate A500/1200 or cycle exact" as with "fastest possible" everything is dissociated in the background, nothing moves together (trees, mountains, etc.) and it's more slower I think.

Anyway, will play the AGA and do my best to score

Thanks John, but will stay with the 4.0.1 for now.

For the one interested, found this manual.

For now, after playing it a bit, will pass my turn due to AGA emulation with this netbook : too slow, too much inertia in the movements and, as soon as the hero touches a wall, I feel like I'm trying to steer a pinball ball that is in the bumpers.

(but will for sure play the OCS version from time to time on my spare time as it is much more playable ).

For this 10th round, will concentrate on EftPotRM.

This game is way more difficult to get into than I thought. Don't have the time to play it adequately these days so here's just a token score from me:



1,291

Was wondering why the score was moving down... naughty designers...

Just to grab some points for the compo with this game : score 2'195

Updated scoring system (thx to Loki and lifeschool) to reward progression:

Landmark number * 100,000 + in-game score

Example for my score:

I've reached no landmark yet and my in-game score was 1,291.

Thus my new score is: 0*100,000 + 1,291 = 1,291

I've never come across this game before but it looks great so I'll have a dabble today. One question - why are we allowed to save in this game, but not in any other game we've ever played?
