This one is nice, lots of options and brutal game play. I died many times without knowing what struck me and the the fixed obstacles are difficult to destroy while still gunning for the moving baddies..

At the end of my game it prompted to continue with 3 credits remaining, I didn't continue but what is the comp ruling on this?

Settings I used (default), happy to change if people want to:
Skill: Timid
Speed: Medium
Start Screen: 1
Colour and low res

Place holder score: 5440

IMO continues are a no-no.

Agreed, plus I read through the instructions and it says score gets reset to zero on continue so no advantage other than doing practice runs on that level.

Well, I'm not too good at this one..... 1610

No Continue is correct, we don't do continuation on HSC games. I think continue in this game just starts you off where you finished but with 0 as your score. Either way, we don't do it......good call Sydney.....

I think if you see game play from other machines, there are bullets or spheres coming from some of the fixed objects. That may be what are taking your ship down. I've had it happen to me but it happens so fast I can't tell exactly what happened.

And yes, you are using the settings we should all be using for this game. They are the default. It doesn't say clearly how to start the game but 3 space bars then and enter at the 'ship' screen and you then need one more space bar when it prompts you.

6120
I also tried HI-RES which seems a little less jerky, but it might just be that things move in smaller chunks.
I keep dying within the same few pixels, just where the gun on the floor fires round blobs diagonally at you.
(This game makes me want to go back to Jeltron)

loved the BITD, one of my favs!
so good I completed it a few years ago, 8 levels of needing power ups on every level :o

this game was so good overall, I always thought it was on my old 286PC with EGA graphics board & 10MB hard disc :oops:

first go, got me 6,930 8)

Level 2 is hectic! Haven't worked out a good pattern yet, however one tip is that if you have to fly through an obstacle do it fast to lose less energy bars.

This score was on 'hi-res' mode which appears to be mode 2 screen at half width.

Score: 12850

Small improvement: 8040
I got all the way through level 1 on my first ship and then didn't get much further.
I do find the collision rather annoying, bullets hitting you that don't actually collide and not picking up power-ups, even though you fligh straight through them.
I think HI-Res is mode 1, with low res being mode 5.
