bah, immaculate madness and racing rolling roamer are triggering at random points still :(
21 Jun 2015
Alright should be working now, about 8 people got it for free :P Enjoy!

High Roller wasn't triggering if your score was under *2,500 even if you beat Sweep. Fixed now. First timer, sorry!

Great achievement set, BMT. I used to play this game like crazy when I was a kid, so it was easy for me (although Raging Roller was a hair-puller! LOL). Good job! :-)
29 Jul 2015
Thanks. I would've thought Immaculate Madness would be more of the hair puller, Raging Roller just requires a bit of messing around til you get it :)

Really great set for this one. It's so simple but there's so much you can do. Thanks for giving me incentive to not only finally beat, but master this old game I used to play as a kid.
15 Aug 2015
Had a lot of fun with this and beat it for the first time along with mastering. Nice game Thank you

I literally wore out my hard copy when I was young, Immaculate Madness was easier for me since I knew I could take the "long" way around. Congratulations to the other 800-ers! :-)

Thanks to SamuraiGoroh for adding the leaderboards, game on!
27 Sep 2016
racing rolling roamer isn't triggering for me, got over 10k several times. anyone know what's up?
23 Nov 2016
What's your method for getting it? Looking back I've made it so that you can only get that cheev if you're getting a 4k bonus above the marble ingame in the first level from jumping off onto those score patterns.
23 Nov 2016
It may seem sloppy but afaik that was the only way to get that score, but if you're getting 3 or 5k from that bonus it wont trigger. there was a reason for this but i cant remember, i think it was triggering elsewhere if i didnt add that

Hi folks, BMT from the future here. I wasn't too smart to begin with so unfortunately there are a couple of tickets open that I can't fix. If any talented devs want to fix things, go ahead ;P
7 Jun 2019
I never could even beat this game...until I saw this set :D Thanks! Everything works just fine :)
