I could never get into this game. I checked, and I don't own the cart. Maybe I can try a few rounds via emulation.

Play any other port and prove it to get at least 1 point for the effort. :)

I'm sure breaking the HSC record has nothing to do with it at all either. ;)

My top score so far: 30,036

Gabriel 35,750

This one should be easy with the play I've seen here lately.


While certainly possible, I'm not sure it will be "easy"... the game starts getting seriously hard around sector 12.

it gets even harder at sector 14… enemies start to shoot from the side, and I've had moments where every beam were filled with enemies, rocks, sparks, bullets… I have no choice but to die!

I think I'll be lucky to break 30,000… I'll have to get every extend, AND get every boss that I can to hopefully be close by sector 12 because that's where I start to burn through lives like crazy!

but I'm masochistic, and enjoy this pain!

I honestly hate to break Sonic's new record by such a tiny amount, but that's just the way it goes sometimes... 39,140

While I'll only get the same 1 bonus point as everyone else, I did play 3 other ports of this game for comparison purposes. I'd rate 2600 as the hardest, while INTV/C64/5200 almost exactly the same. This game never "grabbed me" and has always been something I play about once a decade.

C64- 21,686
INTV- 21336
2600- 17,070
5200- 21,944 (likely final play)
