    Perestroika Girls is the version this bloke told me about - I've never played it but the rom name is perestro I recall.

    Forgot to mention when we were playing Tetris that there was version called Porntris which had a screen opposite to that with the blocks and it raised a curtain to show a porno movie as you completed rows on Tetris.

        Forgot there was a new game up. Don't think I have played this one before.

          This game is a hell of a lot harder and quicker than I remember it There is video on YouTube (it was linked to on CAGDC last year some time which is how I saw it originally) of a guy getting 99% fill on the first two stages. I've watched it, but bugger me if I have the time, skill or patience to try and duplicate this sort of thing. I think Lexmark is able to do it. It's worth a look if you want some hints, or at least watch it after this is all over if you don't like hints

            John, i played and uploaded that video to youtube. TIP.....the Qix will always try and get back to the biggest open space. So, if you trap it in a smaller space, and leave a narrow passage into a bigger space, it will (most of the time) try and get through the passage. Thats when you close it in for a 99% fill.

            Here's the video your talking about.......

              Thanks John. I didn't remember it was you that played this actual video, are you going to submit a score and break the AA record?

              I think I saw the TG records were about 1.5 Million or something stupid - what do you think of these scores? They were all done around the 83-84 era - no one has gone anywhere near these scores in 30 years.

                I fluked a 99% fill on my 70K score but haven't been able to do it again. I didn't go through all the hoohah shown in the video though.

                The game is a lot harder than I remember it to be.

                BTW, I'm a Quicks pronouncer too.

                  I would be hard pressed to say that they are bogus, but damn, they are some huge scores there at TG from back in the day (if they are real)?

                  I would love to play in the MGL, but i have no hope due to very heavy commitments.....this entire year is going to be a bitch for me. I'm not even able to find the time to post on ANY forum as much as i would like to. But i do have a quick look every day.

                  Good luck everyone. I look forward to seeing the final scores.

                    All top 6 set at two different times, it would be hard to make that many bogus scores - but who knows. Mark @ CAGDC would most likely know what event these were at, unfortunately TG doesn't list the location of the score for the moment.

                    TOP Score on MARP is 272k by Don Hayes, which does make you think considering how good a gamer he is - maybe he doesn't like Qix enough to try and push himself to the 1 Mil limit (if it is possible)

                      I think I am going to need a new joystick after this game, very frustrating.. Managed a 75k score late last night, will post screen shot later when I get home. A couple of times I thought I was going to pull the joystick out of the cabinet lol.

                        Along with my other attempts, got to 3rd screen with the twin qix, almost had that level sorted.

                          Different strategy, worked well. Doesnt make the game any better though.

                              I don't know why my screenshots are upside down - not a sign of distress, but this is a frustrating game.

                                Just a quick game to get up on the board (",)

                                I have done much better before, so like some of the other games, when I get on the scoreboard I'll use AAD to differentiate from my usual DAG. Oh, and once I finish with Super Cobra, I'll set my stick to 4 way.
