Erm... what's the point in playing that flashgame when it only says 'CHEAT' after submitting the highscore?

You can see those T-Shirts right here (and in various other places in our photoshoots section). We'll only deliver the blue ones with the black'n'white MSX logo for the time being though ;)

'The first person to get the highest score wins.'

Is this correct - if so, what's the high-score to reach then?

msxgamesbox : we will (soon) announce a deadline to this challenge. The highest score on that date wins. If 2 or more person get the same highscore, the one to get that score the first wins. Hope that's cleared up things a bit Wink

Actually it's a very mean game! Wink

Those shirts always fall down at the same interval, alex could've calced exactly when a shirt is at a point where you can't have time anymore to follow a sudden move from that wuppie. So eventually you *have* to loose, not because you loose, but because the algo is programmed to make you loose anyway.. ^_^
While that might sound like a contradiction (every game should make it difficult for you, which is the purpose of gaming), it's different in column, tetris etc. where blocks just fall without trying to make it hard for ya. If you loose in those game it's because you made a mess of it yourself Smile

It did work for me... but I'm way out of the top 25 already it seems... btw, somebody either cheated his/her way op to place 1 or the database has been hacked.

How's payment done ? eg. creditcard/paypal (both of which are luxuries i don't have ;p ). Will it be possible to do a money transfer via the bank ? Or even cash at an MSX fair.

I'll move this text to another section of the page, but to answer your questions straight away: As soon as the 100-shirts condition has been met, MRC will contact you to gather your address and calculate the total shipping costs. These shipping costs will be added to the total order cotst. Your T-Shirt will only be shipped after the payment of your order has been received by bank, paypal or in cash (e.g. at MSX fairs).Versatile, ain't it? Smile

Damn it! I don't what size will suit me well: L or XL. I have T-Shirts of both sizes and depending on the trademark, L can suitme well while XL being too large or viceversa >_<

Buy XL. If it's too long, you can always wash it on-the-hot-side Smile (Although I have no comparison yet, the shirts are printed in the Netherlands, which probably means they are going to be on the long side)
