Not a bad game, this, and one I haven't played before. Has anyone managed to get beyond level 7 yet? My best so far: 35925.

I think I've found the best way to play this game. Ancient "Model B" emulator to the rescue again, configured to use an Xbox 360 pad, in dual stick mode. Having to press the fire button isn't a problem any more, because you can just assign it to the right shoulder button.

The game's now great fun, although it took three goes before I had a game that didn't crash a couple of levels in :(

I managed to get to level 8 here. Level 7 is a walk in the park in comparison :shock:

...slightly better...

Tip for level 7 - don't worry about aiming, just keep firing anywhere and hope for the best. Save all your concentration for dodging.

Good score Jools!

I'm sure I got past level 8 back in the day.

Don't remember it being anywhere near this fast though.

Slight improvement. One of those games where you can do less well (only got to level 7 here) and get more points, because you can score quite well on level 7, but level 8 is virtually instant death.

Most of which was in the run up to level 8...and I think that is as far as I'm going to get!
