    Ugh! Yet another game I've never been good at, and that I don't enjoy grinding. But err... have at you, I guess?

      Considering I've never got the hang of this game in the 35+ years it's been out I just can't see myself suddenly becoming world class at it in the next 2 weeks.

          Now is maybe the time to try and learn how to play this game better? You know what needs to be done in concept, learning the positions to be in the waves, and flapping the right number of times, plus patterns to collect the eggs. It's the only way, as you know, to get better scores.

            How about just an improvement without grinding. ie like I posted to Terence? BurgerTime has patterns of play, and you learnt that very well. Maybe on this game just some general improvements on how to play better, will give you better scores.

            All these arcade games are about learning and trying your best. The learning part is very important. A bit of luck can be very helpful. Being able to kill 10 pterodactyls increases your score as well.

              I really enjoyed it when we played Joust 2 which was the most "jousting" I'd ever done before. So it'll be good to fix the somewhat blasphemous feeling of not having played much of the first game.

                      Never really practiced this one. This should be fun. Here's a placeholder.
