    You did it mate, congrats.

    Something real interesting with the Rad Action Pack cart. Although, you properly showed the B difficulty settings, the game played like if it was on A.
    (example at 1:20, before reset when you hit the blue car, you bounced back to the beginning, instead of a few lanes.)

    Regardless, the only way to get 38 is following this pattern and without getting hit anyways, so the difficulty switch A or B, does not have any real meaning.

    Cheers for the patch Marc!

    Its interesting you mention that about the cart, i was watching Snowflake's submission and did notice he only went back a lane, not to the start.
    so effectively i played it on the harder level?
    Either way you are right, you can only achieve this score with a perfect run

    Congrats on earning the new patch! I just saw one on ebay for about $6 starting bid if you're interested.


    On a seperate note...Have you ever tried to play the game "bloody human freeway"?


    It's pretty much the same exact game, just with a human instead of a chicken.

    PS.....Is what the alphabet would look like if Q and R were eliminated

    Thanks Scott!

    i actually did buy this patch a while ago of eBay, I've been collecting them. Got it for about $20
    only noticed the Bloody human one the other day, haven't played it yet, I usually download the Rom to use on Stellar
    so this will be the next one.

    Superb. I chased this one for a while once upon a time. Still don't have a 38. :( Accepted. :D
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    I was sure you would have had this in some archive?.

    it's frustrating to say the least, but I'm pretty sure you can get the 38 Andrew!

    I think I have a 37 in the archive - I was just lacking the patience. ;)
