v12I've just forgot to mention that I always play fast with this game and because of that I don't wait for another balls in levels where they are starting to clone.
i do the same, i just clear levels as quickly as possible because the most important thing is to get good at the more difficult later levels, so in order to get a lot of practice in on the later levels, u should get there as quickly as possible
by the way i can share some tips and comments about the game i discovered along the way, or is that kind of sharing of tips not really welcomed in the competition?
I think that the one that suggest a game should explain how the game work.
It took me quite some time just to figure out how Pills, Wings could be used in this game. I asked many times but no one could answer that. In the end I figured it out and shared it on the discord channel.
I shared a lot hints about "Plekthora" that we played, and I suggested last month.
I think it is a good thing to share experiences "how to play"
One hint from me in this game.
It is not possible to get more than 8 pills. No need to collect to many before bonus level.
I'm not against providing tips as there have been several games with which most of us are unfamiliar. The worst thing that will come from that is some gamers giving a particular game a go, and discovering that they like the game!
hey back again, i think the best tip i would give for this game if anyone is not doing it yet is, i would recommend to try to get good at killing the later tougher/faster enemies using jumping rather than using pills. it takes some practice though in order to get more confident with jumping, but it's worth it and gets you further
by the way perhaps some of you have encountered the annoying bug in this game which is, sometimes you lose control of the keyboard/joystick when a round starts and your ball just travels in a set direction and u cant stop it. im thinking the bug must be related to the keyboard/joystick buffer not being cleared/reset properly when a new round starts. i tend to encounter this bug a lot now, as (due to often doing the above described 'jump killing' strategy) i will often finish a round holding down both the fire button and a direction at the same time. annoyingly this tends to increase the chances of the bug occurring on the next round.
156600 Ok, game finished (as far as I remember 2nd time in my life), died in the middle of second playing (game loops after finishing last level).
In the version which I've played I have different bug with one or two levels where balls are cloned. Sometimes one ball has getting a sprite of that weird grey enemy and second ball is invisible so you don't see where the ball is moving on the screen. I would need to check original version of the game to compare if this bug is standard or made by crackers.
I never had a bug mentioned by stepz so it's very interesting.
virtualsky: Thanks, Everything C64! Glad you liked it. I enjoy finding old gems like that. There's so much left for me to discover in the world of C64 that I'll never run out.
