Oooo.... I finished level 6 on DFII (if I recall correctly)

You'll be sure to score some extra points then ;)


Crap, i suck at most of these games. :(

I didn't play CTetris the first time we played it.

DF 2 level 6....hmmm, that might be the only challenge i can do. :ponder:

these are tough challenges for sure, this isn't a bonus round but a chance for hardened gamers to clock up some extra points when the regular HSC game may not take much playing or there is more to play in a game than the 2 week period...


The points awarded reflect the difficulty - BBSB is completable with the warps and 5 men without having to complete too many screens, GSB level 10 is makeable (plenty of extra lives awarded if you get the orb every time) and CTetris 10k is probably the easierst point to bag. I didn't want this to be loads of easy points for some of us greedy HSCers to snatch! Most challenges e.g. Drol are extremely difficult :-o


How about some bonus points for beating a score on the All time table? ;)

That'll probably be a candidate for bonus round later in the season ;)

Can we extend this till the end of the year?


Btw beating Electrician is worth more than 5 points. That last house is very difficult. I got to the stage where I could get to that last house with 10+ lives and on a number of occassions I lost most of my lives on the last couple of levels in that house

I'll extend this until the 7th of December - I've seen Electrician beaten on a video ;-)


Me too but even with the advantage of watching the vid I couldn't beat it! The behaviour of the spiders in the last house in the version we played and the one in the vid did appear different

are they always the same? perhaps post this on the main forum ?!
