Christina,

Looking back at these scores is kind of fun.

RE: Level 39

We're even on this level. Did you notice how if you take a straight shot for the exit on this level that your denied because your 2 chips short? After wading thru all those chips. Pretty clever on the part of the programmer.

Lavel 39     14 seconds remaining     Level Score 19640

Interesting you should mention that Barbara. One thing i noticed about this level....there is no chip socket to go through. It is actually possible to lure a monster out from the pack and enter a goal without going to the "safe" middle. I've done it a couple of times, but i can't remember if i got my "15" that way or not. The other option is to just make sure that you are taking the shortest possible path which picks up all the chips and deposits you at a chip socket just as you pick up the last chip.

hehe...guess what, guys? (and gals, of course)

A 16 is possible! What i did was go 6R, 3D, then a quick 1D and 2U and 2R. Now, here's the trick...you have to be a little patient, and wait until the monster chasing you is right beside you, then go 1D and wait again, until it's right on top of you, the go 2L and down to the goal. I've done it twice now, so i know it's possible. Good Luck!

Thanks Alice !! Got me a 16..Yippee!!!

and here's the weird part..while I was able to make it to 15 a couple of times no prob..going the route you described..everytime I tried to put my pedal to the metal I'd miss it and get eaten up! then..in my haste..instead of going U2 - R2 -D1 - L2...I accidentally went U2 - R3 - D1 - L3 - down to chip. and that's the one I got 16 on!!!!! Go figure!

Of course that made me think there was a possible 17 oput there..so kept tryin with the r2 D L2..but couldn't do it! became lunch every time.

hey..I'm not to proud to take a fluke score! lol

thanks agin Alice! (comeon M! comeon Barb!)

     I think you may find it interesting how I did this level. I played it well over a hundred times. You see, I couldn't seem to get even 15 going straight to the exit square in the middle. I always got 14. I just missed it. So, I tried something else. I can actually get into the exit square guarded by the teeth in 4 seconds! The only problem is it only works 1 out of 5 times. The other times you get eaten. So, let me tell you how I do it. Hold on, let me open up Chip's...

     Okay got it. Obviously, this must be done very quickly. First I go down six squares, and to the right four squares. Right now, you should be right next to the second teeth from the top on the left. Now, as soon as you get to that square, you need to turn around immediately. If the timing is just right, you should be able to escape. As I said, you die 4 out of 5 times, but hey, it's worth it to knock off that extra second.

So, you turn around immediately and go back three spaces and up one. The teeth should be coming toward you. As soon as he gets to the square right below yours, go RRDRRR very quickly. You should be able to manage to get into the exit square safely without getting eaten by any of the teeth on the side or the loose one. And that is how you get 16 seconds.

Just thought you might be interested.

OK, you totally don't need to bother with the monsters. there's an ungaurded exit farther down! just go 15D, 12R, 1U, AND 2R. This really makes life easier!

Best Luck!
