    Here's my starting score. I seem to recall sucking badly at this game last time it was played, I can't seem to concentrate on the stupid letters changing colour and the insects that are chasing me at the same time.

            I love this game, for mine it is the best of the pacman clones. I'm not going to win though, but just love playing it.

            Great first game and one I forgot to nominate at all I believe.

              I gotta admit that this is one of a handful of games that I play regularly. My best is around 270K. Things get manic after the awhile.

              I'm actually a surprised that it got 4 votes. Thought it might be a bit obscure.

              Hey barra I think we played this one back in the 2011 TG DECA.

                Great game to start with. I have a predilection for maze games, but I'm crap at everything!

                Just for interest who gave it two votes - there were 4 votes for it, but only three who voted for it? (An early show of hands in voting strategy and with only four votes it means anyone who gave all eight of their votes to a single game is in - so who did it for Crush Roller?

                      Just realized I could look up the votes for this game on here (and also my laptop) by looking at my inbox Having my first Vodka in weeks and my brain has turned to mooosh

                      Pelly - 2 Votes
                      Chrisbo - 1 Vote
                      Foot - 1 Vote

                      Will add these details to the 1st post tomorrow.

                      If anyone used 8 votes on a game, be warned - you will be named not that there is anything wrong with it - 8 votes were given to use as you wish.

                        Yup, name and shame 'em.

                          Haven't played yet (just got home from the pub) but I will not be a threat on this unless some kind of miracle happens.

                          My best is around 65K. I like the game but suck at it.

                          Bring on game 2
