Got this score after way more than three tries. :)


LOL!

Here's after about 10 tries, getting close to the Gorfy score.

Problem is, I couldn't even get IN the F%&$#-* spaceship!!! It goes VERY fast after the 50ks!

Picture as promised:

54,500.

[As for my timing hint before, remember that the spawn new creeps as you destroy the existing ones, so if you shoot with a steady rhythm, they spawn at the same rate, and you can continue bopping them as they come without moving yourself, often 4-10 in a row.]

Probably for participation point as this game is very confusing to me. I can't even tell when it ends.

There's a big screen-flashy-noisy-exploding thing that happens when your game is over. If a happy little tune plays, the game is just waiting for you to start the next level. The sinking planet is essentially a timer. In the first stage, you need to get to the ship. In the second, you have all the remaining time to score 5000+ points and continue to the next planet/stage once the timer/planet expires.

Hope that helps.

Going for my second one: 77,000!

The game doesn't seem to speed up any more after you crack the 50K barrier, so here's my tip for the fast levels (when trying to get to the ship:

When you're reaching the end of the 2nd half of the level, make sure your ship is positioned to the left or right of center. Do not have your ship positioned in the center. I've found that if the ship is off to the left or right of center, I can get the guy up to the ship relatively easy. In the pic above, my ship was not over enough to the left and I wasted a bunch of time trying to get the guy up there.

Once I really master that, I'm thinking I could play forever, since the game doesn't seem to get any harder.

Argh, one creep got by my laser ball blast thing and that's all it takes. I agree that past 50k is very hard to get to the ship.

This was a very helpful tip for me. In this particular game, I didn't realize how close I was to the end of the level. The picture shows my ship out in center-of-the-screen-no-man's-land and I couldn't get back in the ship.

Was having a really great game,
but took my eyes off the aliens trying to watch over the kid... POW end game... :? :P

So many little things can go wrong, that's what makes it tough for me,
kinda like Donkey Kong Jr.

PS, Where is Frostbite76? :ponder:

I was wondering that myself. I hope he's okay. Damn boys, I need to play catch up today and tomorrow! Been sick the past weekend. Stupid Crohn's.

Starting the 100K club: 100,900!

Cosmic Creeps (1982) (Telesys)_9.png

When the game gets to full speed, you have to keep two things in mind:

1. As the level is coming to an end, make sure your ship is positioned to the left or right of center, or else you're screwed when the new level begins. See pic above...that's where I like to have my ship at the start of a new wave.
2. Stay focused on the creeps. Let one slip by and you're screwed. If you have to kill one of your own to clear a path to zap a creep, then do it.

Lots of concentration and focus is needed. I let a creep slip by me, which ended my game.

I think I might be done with this game. It doesn't get any harder after 50-60K and as long as you do what I mentioned in the post before, you could play forever. I would have kept going, but the mailman knocked on my door and I had to stop playing.

Stan, I have Crohns as well. I agree it is tough to live with. We should keep in touch to go over what you do.

This game reminds me of Activision's Laser Blast... you're having a fantastic time, and then you reach the peak. Until climbing, though, this peak isn't the end of your adventure, but a vast featureless plateau that carries on until you collapse of exhaustion or boredom. I don't know if I have the patience to roll this.

Not to mention the ruthlessness of this game, if you slip up just once, your game is over. Imagine, putting in hours of game time, only to lose focus for that one second and have a final score of 999,900. :mad:

I think Laser Blast is the much easier of the two. For me Cosmic Creeps is right up there with Stampede... all the accuracy and attention needed to play. Laser Blast I can play forever (eyes closed). I can't roll Cosmic Creeps, something goes wrong everytime. :x
