    thats pretty close to the truth. for hte actual game, whatever its fun seeinig your name on top, i know its not real and no harm or come down. the real issue is as i track my overall atari esi, and it can be tough to know your real esi cause of this, and yeah it is a little bit of a bummer for the console level granularity esi where there can in fact be a come down

    Lol, is an extreme rarity to accomplish, but I've found that the actual best way to figure out how to beat Greg is...

    Just ask him.


    Lol, I managed to nip my way to the top of a couple of Activision leaderboards, Barnstorming, etc, but they usually didn't last long.

    heres as good a place as any to turn it serous. mutlipe time i've almost quit this game. but now i really think 'm about to. if the game keeps getting much harder then theres no way its wroth the effort. however if the games difficulty peaks out and i'm already there and just need to get more consistent, i guess i should go for it. 1st place is wroth twice as much, an extra 20 esi over 4th place. so thats kinda motiviatoin from a competive point of view but just not fun

    also for tips, as far as knowing how to deal with the wizard, are there only 2 mazes, or for example is the 4th maze not truly as same as the second as far as where the wizard can spawn and therefore where you should stand?

    I'm thankful that I can call you a friend, Rosa, even though we are so different in views and many other things. Same with all the friends I've made here and those that keep in touch away from here.

    This year has been tough for a lot of folks and some won't even be able to see their families and I want you all to know that I'm grateful you are all alive regardless of any bad past I have with anyone. Today we all at least share the love and thankfulness that comes with being decent human beings. Stay safe.

    I don’t know the actual progression of difficulty on this game or even if there is a way to tell. However, I believe you’re at the peak of difficulty by the time you hit 100K. The location where the wizard spawns seems random so there’s a bit of a luck factor involved. I say keep at it. You get an extra life at 210,000 and probably every 200k after that. Hopefully that will encourage you to keep playing.

    That is interesting thx

    as for the wizards random spawning, i've noticed (at least on any one level) if you wait long enough you'll start to see he only spawns in certain places. so although yes its random which of those predifined places he spawns from, it is random within those parameters. but as i cant remember all those potential spawn points from screen to screen i cant be sure if they stay the same, of if they're even based on your position. i just know if you stay in the same spot on the same screen you'll start to notice the wizard only has a certain number of potential spawn points
