I wasn't great at it but a 5 year old kid who lived in the shop next door named Johnny Oliveri had the game down pat and I watched him score over 400K on that version.
          Are you telling me a 5 year old kid could play better on this game than you could? Gee. Did you watch this kid play, and what was his strategy?

          I remember this game being wheeled into Orbit 5 on George St in the mid 80s. This game really takes some thinking on what to do and how to do it. A very strange game it was and most gamers first time that I saw playing this game lasted only for a couple of minutes, if that max!

          Beware the 5 year old.

            That kid could play this game better that any of us there at the time. We all watched him play. At the time Jackler (the Jungler clone) was 20c a game and the other game they had (Mr Do) was 40c a game. It was a case of wait and watch, play Mr Do and only get half as many games unless you got a diamond or go to Timezone which was about a 15-20 minute walk. As for strategies it was 1983 and I was 11-12. The thought of strategies didn't even cross my mind. No idea what settings the game was on either. I knew nothing about these things at the time. I just played games and whatever happened happened

              Mr Do was 40c a game? Now that's pushing it. Dragon's Lair was 2 coins, but I never saw a Mr Do at 2 coins. Well I have now!

                This was a fruit shop on the Hume Highway at Warwick Farm. When they first got games it was Donkey Kong for 20c and Galaga for 40c. DK was changed to Jackler due to it causing fights between people waiting. Galaga changed to Mr Do then a 40c Moon Patrol was the last 40c game there from memory.

                The other 2 games I can remember them having were Hyper Olympic and Pole Position. By then the pizza shop next door had Qix and the BP service station at the other end of the row of shops had DK Jr and Ladybug. Galaxian went through there as well

                  Dragons Lair is the first 2 coin game I remember.
                  2 coins for Mr. Do is pure greed!

                    2 coins for a diamond is cheap!

                                Worked something out today.

                                You could call it a game changer!
