    The bonus in the middle isn't worth chasing for the 1st several levels, if you get it great, otherwise you just increase your chances of getting killed.

    Other tips, mmm I gunna regret it I know but

    1. ALWAYS get the love hearts when they are blue - BEFORE you get any letters. This gets your max points up to 5X
    2. Eat the letters when they are the corresponding colour to what word your trying to spell.
    3. I always try and spell EXTRA 1st so if E, I, T come up then I eat the E and T when they are yellow. These score 5X 300 (1500) if you followed step 1. Eat the I when it's red and score 5X 800 (4000)
    4. Once you have a letter in the word "extra" and it comes up again then eat it when it's red and score 5x 800 on it as well.
    5. Spell extra and the pattern finishes, you get another dude. Spell Special and the pattern ends and you get a free game (who cares)
    6. The bonus gets worth shitloads in the later paterns and is worth the risk.

    Goodluck!

    The pattern after you get an extra always seems harder, fast little ****ers
    "Beer, it does a belly good!"

    Wanted: Pacman Cab Next Project: Skinny MAME Cab for Samfoot, thread soon, no really. I might even do one on my Pole Position cab!

    Off topic, but any Wii owners hear about the retro-goodness coming soon ? Rebooted versions of NBA Jam, Donkey Kong Country, and Goldeneye.

    Thought I was doing OK, but then realized I had the dips set on easy, no time to play now till Sunday.

    Good game, the maze spinners make it much more strategic. I remember playing it on colecovision at a friends place, it was arcade perfect, what a system

    My mates had an Atari & thought they were the Kings but when my brother got a coleco they became mere Barons....

    Not a game I spent much time on in the past as it rarely made it to the local milk bar but we loved it when it was there & it is good frustrating fun.

    Doubt I will get any better than this although I'll give it a red hot go!!!

    For the record - I hate this game

    Anyway, my reason for selecting it was because it's my wife's favourite game (played on the Colecovision rather than arcade) and this is about all she plays on the machine. I figured if it did come up it would force me to actually try to play the game well and at least challenge her hi scores!

    At the rate I'm going I don't think she has too much to worry about.

    The bugs are already fast on the first screen! Don't think I have got more than about 12,000 yet...
