Not really enjoying this one to be honest, struggling to muster up more than 8k at the moment!

Ha, yeah. I get that very feeling about an awful lot of DMG Gameboy games. They’re all just so in inoffensive and basic.


I liked the new Avatar.

Sqoon world champ!

Pretty sure Ben isn't aware of the strict 1 week deadline. He might still be planning to have a go on Mr. Driller.

Not having this:

- First post explains it all clearly, 1 week, Sunday deadline
- Title of thread says "This Week"
- Title of thread changes each week
- He's posted in the thread confirming he's had exposure to the above
- etc

I'm sure we'll all regret goading him before he comes in and trounces us all :lol: till then, clippa will probably continue dancing like a butterfly and stinging like a bee

His dad was self employed which seemed to involve him sitting around the house a lot with his shirt off listening to bob marley.
I'm self employed, and this is exactly what it's like.

I might let one of you maggots have your day in the sun this week, I'm feeling benevolent today.

He used to cook rabbit that his friend had caught sometimes and it would stink the whole house out. My friend would got really, really angry about that.
I always thought he was overreacting but I suppose I didn't have to live in it, gagging on the gamey stench everywhere you turn, just trying to live your life.

Dear god, I thought playing the arcade version with a mouse was bad enough.

:lol: at Clippa giving it the biggun for winning two out of three.

Oh! No you most certainly can't accept the win then! Game Gear was the format.

@CoinsAlonso did you play on Game Gear (emulation fine) for your 58k? If so you get the win. Otherwise, I'm awarding it to myself as I did suffer the Sega handheld atrocity.

Aye. I posted my score first in our Whatsapp group and begged someone to overtake me so my name wasn't tarnished with it.

Yeah, emulated Game Gear, with the death screenshot to show for it.

Not sure I want the win now. ;)
