Okay folks, there are now roughly 7 days to go until the competition deadline of 23:59:59 GMT on Thursday 16th September 2021.

I'm bumping up the prize money (again) to £150. :o

That's some serious beer money. ;)

See the first post of this thread for the rules. Remember it's a First Past The Post competition.

The solution video(s) will be posted just after the deadline.

It's approaching 24 hours until the competition deadline (23:59:59 GMT on Thursday 16th September 2021).

There have been no submissions up to this point in time.

Now, in the final 24 hours in the run up to the deadline, I am (rather insanely!) bumping up the prize money to £175 :!: .

(It started off at £100, by the way.)

Good luck to anyone who wants to give it one last shot. ;)

tick tock...

The competition deadline has passed with no submissions.

The competition is now over, and no submissions will be accepted. Thanks and commiserations to those that gave it a go.

Here, as promised, is a video of Crystal Hunter being played through to completion (without cheating, of course). I realise that I make it look a lot easier than it probably is.

Very impressive - maybe I was too scared of the green meanies!
