be sure to check the manual to understand the controls!

 

This round began a little late, so scores will be accepted through Monday.

I don't have any non-jittery paddles right now, so I'll have to use Stella this week.

I had never played this one before, but it's a neat game. Reminds me a lot of Astroblast.

I decided to come back and take another crack at it after having breakfast and my morning coffee, and I think I improved my score a fair bit. One useful tip I learned while playing this time which isn't in the instruction manual is that once you reach the 5th level of difficulty at 3,200 points and above, letting a red death ship touch the ground becomes an instant game over no matter how many lives you have stockpiled.  At that point in the game instead of disappearing and taking away 1 life when the death ship touches the ground the ship just bounces up and down on the ground draining all of your lives in about half a second, so once you cross the 3,200 point threshold you cannot let a death ship reach the ground or it's game over.
 
Anyhoo...

1,010. I gave this game a good review on my blog but playing it for extended periods of time becomes tedious.

considering Jin's tip about the red-death machines, I think it may be a good idea to practice getting right in the face of those things from the beginning.

I was wondering why you would end up somewhere else seemingly randomly when you release the fire button.  I read the instructions again and found out you go to where your cursor is.

That's some useful information.

EATL-5 :  2846

 

Game could have been good. Needs a boss or some power bar.

Hope to beat this but my deaths come quick!

I can't seem to get the paddles to work on Stella at all?

Any ideas?
