I thought the music and the psychadelic background was pretty cool actually. I got somewhere in the area of 225k points, I forgot the actual number. I liked the gameplay...

Since pritchard didn't post here (that I saw) he figured out an exploit, if you pause the game and move the cursor, you can unpause it and 'warp' between areas to dodge the bouncy thingys. A way to fix that would be to see if the pause happened because of 'p' or because of leaving the screen... if it's a 'p' pause' then store the mouse coords and 'setmouse' when the game is unpaused.

edit: 225, not 335... fat fingers must have been too far over O.o

I just didn't want people ruining the game for themselves. It's really fun and the pause cheating kinda ruins it.

I didn't report it publicly is all. Dr D heard me talking about it in #freebasic.

its not especially a bug, we've known about it for quite some time, but left it in there since it comes in really useful on the later levels.

I do. I don't see how that changes the pause/move exploit, however.

Thanks. No we didn't, but we were thinking about using it for the sequel. ;)
