Beating dad's high score  APR 06 2010

Troy DeArmitt shares a fond childhood memory of competing with his father for the household's high score on Mega-Bug, a game for the TRS-80.

the next time i sat down at the computer, on a tablet of paper was written a number with an emphatic underline beneath it. it was in my father's handwriting and it took me a moment to realize it was a score, his high score, to the game. it was also higher than my highest score to date.

Mega-Bug is available to play online...Troy has the full instructions in his post. I played this game when I was a kid too...it was called Dung Beetles on the Apple II and was one of my favorites.
