1,555,200 (thanks to 500k bonus !)
This game seems very difficult, I don't know if I could complete it

Important: You must find the glasses to see the jellyfish !!!

About 13 years ago I played the Mega Drive-version emulated on PSP and got to the final level, but could never beat it. Definitely not an easy game and certainly not everything is self-explanatory. Thus here the most important info from the manual:





Additional info about special items:

SHADES - These allow you to see the usually invisible jellyfish.

TOP HAT - Reduces the damage you take from enemies.

RAY GUN - Firstly, when underwater it saves you having to bubble-up enemies
and pop them because they pop instantly when hit. Secondly, it allows you to
kill land-based animals.

EXTRA DYNAMITE - This can be obtained fron James' home pipe. It is only for
Mission 3, where he can get extra bonus for planting it at the bottom of the
legs of the oil platform.

And how to get up to 3x 10M bonus:

for a massive 30,000,000!

Yes the music is catchy and suitable with the game.
Some situations are sometimes unfair (level 4 in particular) but it's a good game.
I died on the 7th level (1-2-3-4-5-6-8 completed).

New score: 2,494,450
Too bad I missed one letter (D), I could have 10M more ...

Hi John, how is it possible to get 10M by level 5? On my version only one letter appears per level, and each cave gives the same letter, so it would take 9 caves/levels to get the full name?

One letter per screen, most levels have multiple screen. I also had the 10,000,000 by level 5.

Found the damage-reducing hat but it doesn't help against explosions.

It's got an addictive level of challenge, I keep coming back for more punishment. Max 4 lives and a time limit - a lot more pressure than I'm used to.

Yeah it's a very tough challenge. I wish you'd still get an extra life every 100k later on so that the pressure wouldn't be so high. But at least the top hat that you obtain in level 6 reduces damage taken immensely.
