Atari Video Computer System / 2600


The timer is strictly a points timer. You don't lose a life and the game won't end if it runs out.

With the scoring, you get 10 points for each second left when you finish a round. If you finish with any time left, you also get a bonus of 1,020 points; if you finish with no time left, you still get a bonus of 1,000 points.

BUG: Sometimes when you get to the end of the path, the round won't end.  The problem occurs when moving from the 2nd-to-last column over to the last.  If you try to get around the corner using diagonal movements, the duck might up 1 pixel over to the left too far.  You won't be able to move back to the right, into the last column, but you'll now be able to move left through the left border on either the top or bottom!  The display will be come erratic at this point.  If you keep moving in the path of the maze (ex: up, left, down, left, etc), itís possible to wrap-around and end up on a stable screen in the lower-right corner.  {Scott Stilphen}
