Which brings me to wondering what the players of Tutankham call the various enemies.
The manual refers to all the enemies as "nasties".
Helpful onloooker: "No, you have to wait until..."
Me: "I didn't pay my quarter to wait. I can wait for free. I paid to kill stuff."
Good one :lol: :lol:

Which isn't much more helpful than calling them "enemies".

Great score Donald. I was hoping to post a 300k score, but 400k is out of the question for me this week.

If you download the flyer for this game, the 60 point monsters that first show up in stage 4 are called "curses". It goes with the theme of the game, so that sounds good to me.

Very nice job, Donald! I'm going to have to check out your .inp and see if I can pick up any new strategies on your almost 400K game. Looks like I'm going to have to dust off my ol' keyboard and do some practicing if I plan to keep up with you.

Hey Art! Thanks for letting me know about GEGOTW.

That's only fair since I use a couple techniques that you showed us at Funspot a few years ago :D

The winning number is 20.

And a question I never thought I would ask:

Don, what size is your dog? (S,XL,2XL)

There's got to be at least 50 good comeback lines for that question....

I guess an XL would be okay, although I have no idea what I'm actually going to do with it.
