New high score for me.  1,922.  

:o

Quote from: grips03 on October 24, 2017, 01:30:20 AMI was super conservative with getting the key.  Over the course of the game this costs about 5-10 strength points.  Not ideal, but better than losing 5 with single touch.

I took pic at 1898 with 3 strength points left.  It was a bad idea as key passed by and I had to wait for it to return to get it, hence 1,922 final score.  


I remember that you do not like the idea of time but it is necessary precisely for this. It forces the player to make decisions / take risks.

I just don't want to panic due to timer counting down.  Its nervous / brain thing.  Perhaps my brain is defective :)

In FL it's not so bad for my brain.  After counting down from 75 the player is sort of tired anyway.  


On a unrelated topic, did you ever see GI Joe game on Commodore 64?

Go to time :58 seconds (select character) and then the battle at 1:05

Would something like that be possible on O2?  Perhaps 1 or 2 player modes?

Sort of like FL but with GI Joe theme and multiple maps.  Each castle/base would have evil Cobra badguy to do battle with.  Player would battle underlings and work your way to battle with Cobra Commander at the main base.

Can the voice module even say "Cobraaaaa" like they do on the cartoon.

In HW, I like how the arrows are the arrows.  At first the I thought it meant go this way.  Cover art looks awesome. Is HW  Voice enhanced?

sorry for not answering before In the last days I've been preparing my talk. I went on the fifth Thursday and returned today at 5 am, I almost had to go straight to work. Now I'm coming back (I'll be answering the mails too). BTW .: It was amazing to talk to (wonderful) people about Odyssey with the same enthusiasm that you seem to lie. Some people tried a record in FL, but they could not. About the tournament scores only will be accepted until November 03 (date of posting in this forum)

No power here since last night.  Hopefully we get power back soon.

Updated ;)

Only got 1,824 today.  Was doing great up to 1,043, then got hit a bunch up ~1,100 and then once more near 1,500, then prefect from that point on.  If I only could figure out how not to hit ever that would be good :)

Tell me how you got these numbers. ??? ???

grips03

75-20 (4 hits) = 55

1946 score /  55 = 35.38

35.38 * 75 = 2669 <--assumes one never gets hit

Not sure how I got 2653 :)

New high score:  2,044

Got hit 4 times.  Wiggled between castles and key to help speed up a little.
