@ - who, you could always put a 'k' or something next to your scores to make them stand out.

@ Graham - what I want to know is... in the screenshots above this page it shows a grey alien thing in 2 out of the 3, yet he is not in the game. Are the screenshots edited or from an old version or something? It would have been nice to have an alien pop up worth mega points.

To be honest, I wouldnt play this more than 3 times when it was not for the knockout. My by far most frequent death cause is that i want to leave a platform, see the character falling, turn into the other direction to follow the path and the character decides to step onto the platform again *grrr*.

Wow, so close Harry. 500+ points is basically just one fruit by those later levels!

Group C scores are already jammed and its only day 2.

I think Mipe will loop the game as she did in the competition round, so there is a battle for the second place among us other 3.

Yes the loop would be in mipes favour but its not easy. So many times I make it to level 9 with 49k but no further and no loop. With each fruit worth around 1k by the end I am only 6 or 7 items behind your score, but so often I run out of time on the zig-zag sections, 2 times in 3. The other times I jump into nothing - like todays run.

Ok, I'm all warmed up now
Only looped it once, but it's my best ever score on Downfall.

Only a small score improvement, but I reach level 10 now regularly.

Certain sections seem to be easier than others, I survived the last grass level as I managed finally the presented first zigzag of it, not knowing the rest.

Having the character climbing back to a platform where I want to fall off is still my most frequent death cause, happens especially when i am in a hurry anyway because space looks tight.

Small improvement from yesterday, couldnt get a higher score today - was forced to collect various snails and weights.

85.855

Still not feeling safe with this score.

After trying for three weeks during the league and most of this week too, I finally managed to wrap the game a couple of times yesterday.

94,823

That 87,989 on the scoreboard was so annoying because I knew I needed to collect just two more items to overtake Lines. I saw one of them, went for it but it put me slightly out of position just as a zigzag part appeared below me. Thankfully the 94k score came soon after.

Graham, what is it with these nightmare groups you always put me in?!?
