The Earth has been attacked by extra-terrestrial forces. Their weaponry is fierce and their numbers are almost too great to count. It will take a couple of fearless fighter pilots to bring them to defeat. Feel up to the job?

This is a tough one to get a score pic from unless you're using some sort of emulator and a capture program. The alternatives are recording your game and rewinding to get a screen shot or starting a second game and be quick with the camera after the first boss. That's what I did. I didn't think about score shots when nominating this game, I just loved playing it. :) 308,550

Use button 2 to reposition your option fighters. I like to use them in front to absorb some extra hits.

Got 630,800. I'm going to record all further playing of this one. It'll make it easier.

Congrats on the 5200 4ks! What did you get to play on it? I kind of have a love/hate relationship with mine.

I haven't gettten to play it yet. And unfortunately, I probably won't for about 12 days since the seller forgot to ship it yesterday and I'm going on a 4-1/2 day trip next sunday. :(

the bonus comes from successfully shooting down all enemies, and not getting hit, on the sections where it zooms in.

I've gotten that on the second one. First one still gets me at least once.

I tryed out the C64 version of Scramble Spirits, and the points are alot lower on that version.
I only got 10,000 points for a perfect run on the part of the game where it zooms in on the first level.

I've been trying to spark interest in a C64 HSC with no luck. Most of the Sega games didn't port over well to C64. There are a few exceptions.
If I remember, the 2 player co-op mode of this game was very good on the SMS.

Actually, I found out that the 5200 is coming by UPS, so it ought to get here by saturday.

As long as the controllers work! That's probably the #1 weakpoint of the system. I don't have much in the way of extras on these, but I do have some parts and pieces.

I'm getting one working controller and two controllers that work but are both missing parts (I can make a second working controller out of these two).

I casually enjoy playing Scramble Spirits, but playing for score is pure frustration…

your points do not tabulate UNTIL you defeat the end stage boss - so if your game ends mid level - you will NOT receive any points for that stage…

the side challenge is rather daunting -as a 1CC is a tough task but I cannot imagine a 1LC… with the point blanking, shots from behind, and the flicker causing for untimely deaths… I need to take a break as I've built up much frustrations this evening…

Ok, with less than a week to go, I've changed the side challenge. Now you have to reach one millions points to get the +2.
