the Amiga version is the definitive version I'd say because of the great music atmospheric by Dave Whitaker but the C64 is very good. I got up to around level 1100 back in the day and still have my codes. It would be nice to think that I go back it actually with a mind to finish those 10,000 levels

Luckily I don't think it gets progressively harder after so many levels but I could be wrong

Such is the beauty of computer retrogaming. Even if you had a C64 BITD, you will have missed or overlooked so many classics - maybe you arrived after Beach-Head, Archon, Impy Mish, Bruce Lee etc, or left before Creatures, Mayhem, First Samuari, Lions of the Universe etc, or didn't have a disk drive, or didn't fully explore adventures or RPGs, or only had NTSC rather than PAL - still loads that you missed.

And if, like me, you went from Spectrum to Amiga, you missed Cosmic Causeway, Project Firestart, Wasteland, Racing Destruction Set...

Just had a quick go with the Amiga version and played level 0. Jumped to level 22 (96779955) then to level 60 (17474995). Now at level 99 (08568571) .

Agreed, the Amiga music is absolutely superb

You mean different people like different things? No way

Not sure about 'best', but I'd give The Sentinal a 'very impressive'.

Seeing how the sentinel & sentries turn, then moving quickly is the clue

The difficulty goes back and forth. Sometimes you end up in a really difficult place and have to go back to your previous code and complete that level again with a different amount of energy remaining before you jump forward, so that you get an easier level instead. :-)

You can make trees and boulders before you jump forward if you want to fine tune where you end up.
