I won't give it up. I own mine. I got it in 1986 from a Putt-Putt Golf & Games that was going out of business. They were so hard up for cash they took my opening offer of $350. I did have to replace the monitor in the mid 90's for about $400, installed. The past The last 5 years I didn't play much because the monitor needed work and it wouldn't always come on. When it did come on, it would usually blink off after 3-5 hours. I got it fixed last fall. It needed some sort of part that regulated the monitor. I'm getting alotta mileage out of this old CRT. Next time....I may have to get an LCD?Originally Posted by ZAZ1
Anyway, I started playing again regularly and I've gotten better than ever. I had once made 489,000 back in the 90's or early 00's. I wanted to make 500,000 . So, I worked out how to max out my Blue points and how to turn the most dots BIG for that extra 40 points per dot. I exceed 80,000 after the 3rd screen, sometimes I exceed 95,000 . I've come very close a few times to breaking 100,000 on the first 3 screens.
On the 16th & 17th screens the ghosts get much faster than you are. The 16th screen, style of the 4th, is very do-able. There's many long passages and you can get the red one off your butt by stopping against a wall and send him off the wrong way. The 17th screen is the style of the 5th screen. It has all those short passages. There are a few ways to flick the red one off your tail but they're hard to set-up. I get run down by the red one repeatedly....I've never cleared the screen. I've come within 10-20 dots a few times.
I guess I'll have to try some new stuff on 17 and see what I can come up with...???
