Don't think there is one FS. You have to use your 'intuition' to figure out where you should be shooting.

Yep figured that so thought I'd ask a stupid question anyway... reminds me of early FPS DOS games where some would mark a small dot in the center of the monitor to show where the gun was pointed, always thought it felt like cheating a little [-(

Interesting game this one, lots of luck involved... How did you get past the aircraft carrier screen? I'm guessing it needs to be destroyed but was having trouble working out if I was hitting it or not.

Uh, I didn't expect this... I just completed the game (on skill level 1). I assumed it would keep going after you get to the big gun at the end, but no, the game just ends. Anyway, here's a score to aim at: 115,000

Completed it again, with a slightly higher score this time. Got all of my boats through the passageway at the beginning, that helped my score a bit here.

Completed the game, so now trying to optimise the score. You need to get at least 3 tanks through to the final level to defeat it, but you can use any remaining ones to improve your score... feel free to leave this score out of the HSC if this is not strictly allowed. 129,600
