I played a lot in the arcade.
This is a really good port.

I also played this version a lot back then!

I just don't remember where to place my ship during the chance stages ... except for the 2 first one.

Also, I don't know exactly what killed me at level 20 but I lost 4 lives in about 20 seconds.

Had to settle for 285,400

Yay Gyruss, my first try today :) Fortunately I still have vacation next week so a lot of time to practice :D

@duncantoml: 285k is awesome!

Is it allowed to use another controller like the MegaDrive? My hand starts to hurt with the Coleco controller at 50k points :)

A definite destroyer of joystick fire-buttons... can we get Daniel to hack this one and add an auto-fire feature!

One of the BEST ColecoVision titles.

Haven't played this in a while. Grew up with the c64 version and this one plays good, a tad fast, but the Coleco controller works perfectly with it.

Had a good game (for me :-) = 139,300

I get in the zone on this game and do well and then when I lose a ship and go back to one bullet I end up losing three ships in a row quickly.

I don't care for this game. Seems a matter of shooting really fast and memorizing locations to shoot from. I'll take my 1 point for participation.
