I just hit all of the bonus rounds last night for the first time.  It took me a while to get there though...

I don't have an Atari Joystick currently : (

So this is with a dpad.  

easy mode, 3 lives, auto shoot and auto power up.

This seriously messed up my timing not playing through the MSX bone stage.  

 

I managed to loop the levels twice today.

I think the next challenge issued should be for donkey kong. :P

 

I see a reflection in the gradius image, that's you taking the photo, and your kid? :)

I was referring to Opcode's first gradius high score picture.  Opcode (I think) is taking the picture, and to his left (our right) there is a young kid in the picture (I think-it is kinda dark).  You have to zoom in tho. :)

Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, go to your room, you're grounded!

Try that code during this game, you'll self destruct like Gradius 3.

There is a way on the MSX to switch your ship to Twin Bee.  I think you have to have a Twin Bee cart in the second slot on the MSX.  

 

I messed around with the keypad for about an hour trying to find easter eggs in this version.  No luck yet.

I really need to push off the pile of dust off Gradius and play it. That upside down volcano usually get me almost every time.

I always die on the 1st inverted volcano.  I just skip it now with the bonus stage.

 

Fly through through the mountain tunnel in stage 1.

 

get to bonus stage_1.png

 

Then fly through the mountain tunnels in stage 4.

 

get to bonus stage_4.png

 

Warp to the bonus round.  No inverse volcano!
