In the end I prefer playing with keyboard, I am slower but more precise. The caves are dangerous, I try to avoid them

 

I can definitely see the appeal of keyboard myself, yeah.  Though I've gone back and forth.  But in a game where one missed input can and will kill you in no time flat, having precision is at a premium.

Thanks for sharing, I did not know that!    but  my beta has the broken C symbol, however the caveman looks better than in this version ?  (in Classic99)

Besides enemies sprites, has anyone noticed other differences between the released version (good C symbol and monochrome enemies) and the beta (bad C symbol and multicolor enemies)? In particular, what about gameplay?

For the July's compo I have only played the released version

If you are too late to capture the high score, then in the next game after "game over" you can see the High again... luckily.

 

In the scene to shoot the fish I somehow only get points when shooting the green coloured ones. (Is there another version to get points for black, white, blue)? Played on js99er.net

 

Score 29900

No first-party manual or materials, since it's an unreleased title which was recovered as source code.  Look forward to figuring it out, where strategy and gameplay are concerned. 

I read the story of the discovery of the source code by Toucan. But then it seems that Toucan produced a cart and spread it. Has anybody the actual source code of the game? Would be interesting to look at it!

This is a very Fun game!! ?

For now, it's by far my favorite Funware title (I have only seen Cave creatures and St Nick).

In the bonus screen I think that the green small fishes are worth 500 points, while the other green ones are worth 400.

(Other Funware titles are also good: Driving Demon, Schnoz-ola, Ambulance, 20210821_173016.thumb.jpg.acbd1a3d94fad3aab67f11ae93e7fa64.jpgHen House).  Pipes i probably never seen
