I'm not good at all at this type of games.
This is the best I could do after playing for an hour.
I will try again.

It's a pretty solid score for EXPERT setting. There's a final week to learn more about playing it.

My first submission...is having trouble uploading.

67,230 but since I am unable to submit, not a valid score yet.

EDIT: Tried uploading again but it wouldn't. Guess it's a bad screenshot.

I got the 10k bonus on the 2 first challenge stages.

I'm also getting very good at shooting my own ship after it was captured!!! 1000 point! ;)

I'm usually getting to stage 16 without loosing a life.
I'm having a lot of problems with the entry patern after that, especially when they set in position and one or two goes down very quickly directly at you.

Also, for those using MESS, it's possible to record an INP file of your game.

I did a pretty good job slaughtering the enemies; there were usually less than half a dozen when the time came to swoop down. THe final enemy in stage 26 killed me though. But it was a collision so I still cleared it. :P

1/2 way through the FINAL...

Jifremok takes the lead... by around 35ks.

Does patbb have enough in the tank to charge ahead of 7800 Season 4 champ?

While playing yesterday, I was killed by my own ship!

I got my fighter captured, as usual on the first level.
Then I shooted the ennemie ship but my own fighter attacked me.

But I was lucky ... 1000 points ... but I lost two fighters at the same time :)

I'm wondering if this is "normal"
If this is not suppose to happen, I can make a video ... I recorded an INP.

So why are you all shooting ur ship, this version doesn't allow the double power?

Usually when you shoot the enemy, the one that captured your fighter, your fighter connects to the fighter you are currently playing with and you have "double power" .
This is what I found strange, it came directly to me as if it was attacking me.
In normal situation, your captured fighter stops and spin on itself while there's a special music playing. Then fighter that you are currently using automatically position itself in the center of the screen and the captured is connected to yours.

That occurs in Galaga if you shoot the alien that "captured" your other fighter before it and your "captured" ship makes an attack pass at you.

sounds like you shot the alien while it was sitting still. They have to be moving before you get your ship back.
