1st effort. Played with lots of distractions so I expect to easily beat this with some peace and quiet - so in around 12 years time then.

Really? You think peace comes then? Oh dear, where have we gone wrong?

Brilliant game, and a pleasure to help out during the beta testing... Hope to do better than this, though... 25,125

Great game, this. I can do a lot better than this, but I'm a bit rusty. First go:

There we go, that's a bit more like it. I think I lost 5 lives on level 12 - once I lost two, it made it incredibly hard to continue with that amount of firepower.

Had a bit of a good run up to level 12, kept the 4 shooter for most of it but threw away 4 lives on level 12 when I thought I might be able to actually finish the game... one tactic I used is that once I get the 4 shooter I don't pick up any more boosts unless it's the bomb.

@FS,

So there are 12 Levels?
Do you know if it starts again after that?
How do you tell what the power ups are.... I've just been picking them up as I go.....

There are 14 levels IIRC - the difficulty really ramps up on levels 12 - 14. Once the game is completed, it doesn't loop.

As far as the upgrades go, I think it's Red = spread shot upgrade, Yellow = close shot upgrade, B = Bomb. Once you've got the full spread shot upgrade, avoid the yellow upgrades at that point 'cos they'll downgrade you from a 4-shot spread shot to a 3-shot close shot.

I've also noted getting a life at some point. Is there a life upgrade or is that point related?

The forum doesn't like jpg, I use png. Are you using beebem? If so you can change the screenshot format in the File > Screen Capture Options menu.
