    I messed up big time. Was going for a bonus "dot" on level 4 and died in the process :/ If I'd gotten that and finished the level, would have been about 45k+ :/

    -EDIT- 55,590.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please make sure that your INP & WLF file names ARE UNIQUE to avoid issues! I have a tendency to download & unzip files in batches, which means that if your file names are the same, they'll likely get overwritten.

    Slapping something simple like your initials on the file name is typically enough to avoid such problems.

    This game is cool. I just mentioned "The Arcade Flyer Archive" in another post, check out:

    Check out the artwork on that vehicle :D - not sure I can see where the tongue comes from though.

    Interesting but it seems the scoring table is off (at least for me). I only get 100.150.200.250.300.350 for eating the medussa's and then my bonus's are 100 for the first jump, 150 for the second and 200 for the third (I've never made it by the third).

    letters I think get to be worth more the more extra lives you get, don;t know the exact table, but eat a lot of them too.

    Scoring appears same for me, not sure why the flyer is different.

    Even though this game is really fun, it's also incredibly frustrating. From level 2 on, I don't remember playing a game that puts you in more difficult or impossible to escape circumstances than this one. Some enemy will come forcing you to duck, thus you miss a bunch of dots, thus those turn into flying enemies and run you down. Or the bonus letters will appear next to a wall and induce you to crash. And what's up with the bridges that always open just as you reach them??

    Anyone got tips on the second bonus jump? I always lose a life and get no bonus because I can't make the landing.

    most bonus jump screw ups are from going too slow at the start, try to hit the ramp at full speed.

    Edit: In this game full speed means being at the left of the screen.

    I've come to pretty much enjoy all the DECA titles EXCEPT this one!

    I simply cannot seem to get a decent score. Like a previous poster said you get put in totally unreasonable situations and the controls are horrible.

    I'll have to try and go all out on the others because this is going to be the one that lets me down.
