Its almost the end...

Post by exxos » Wed Dec 23, 2020 10:29 pm

... of 2020 :)

It's been one hell of a year for a lot of us. It's sure had its ups and downs! Of course this time of year is hard in itself for some. Not just the stress of CV19 and everything which goes with it , but the loss of friends and loved ones who are no longer with us around this time of year. I think some of us have gone a little nuts over this past year..With all the stress and anxiety people suffer with.. I just have that effect on people sorry! :lol: Though keep calm and party on!

As always, I am amazed by the support and developments of everyone on here over the past year! I can't wait to see what 2021 will bring to the world of Atari! BIG THANKS to everyone on here for being part of our fantastic community!
I plan to down a bottle of vodka and try to get off level 1 of xenon! Maybe this year will be there year! :excited:
So let's all raise a glass to the (almost) end of epic year! I am sure things will be better in the new year for everybody! :cheers:

..and forthwith.. I leave you with these wise words from the great crazy frog...

Yeah, have a great Xmas everyone, and hopefully a much better new year.

Although I would advise Exxos, if you want to get past level 1 on Xenon, play the game BEFORE the downing of said Vodka bottle! :D

I had blocked the frog from my memory, even without playing it back I'm traumatised. Even in our hot weather it'll be single malt for me. God bless Scotland and Merry new year chaps.

Viva Atari.

Well I was going to suggest a cheat to help you @exxos but it seems you have to get to level 2 to enable it
Let yourself be killed off at Level 2, Stage 2 and all the aliens in the round will be destroyed.
Happy Xmas, raising a glass to everyone :cheers:
