We could use both controllers at the same time to achieve the same effect.  Kinda awkward though.

Yeah I do for tron deadly disc because there is no maze but for this sometimes you need to be precise to enter.  It’s tough doing that using  two hands.

Great Score !!! Wow was that in Disc Mode!!! 

My Record was around 110,00 or so +\-  Disc level a few years back here in the HSC. 

 

Any Tips for the invisible guy and such would be greatly appreciated. 

 

👍🏻 Once again great score !!! 

Cant wait to see your record.  

It was on disc mode. Anything else is too slow. I’ve played this game a LOT in order to get to this point, but I do have a couple of tips. The robots (and your player for that matter) can only have one bullet on the screen at a time. So if you entice one to shoot at you from across the screen, it buys you some safe time. The key to the invisible robot (where the real game begins) is to try to wait in a place where he will shoot before he is right on you, so that you can react. I like the crook of bushes in the lower right in particular. Also, never hang around the bunker in later stages. You can lose several lives in quick succession that way. 

 

My record on twin galaxies is 641,300. I’ve gotten higher than that a handful of times, but that’s my documented high score. That was the world record until Matthew S. Miller crushed it with a score a little over 2 million.

When I was a kid, my dad and I would play it as a 2 player co-op. I ran with one controller and he shot with the other. It was a blast.

Great memory with your Dad that’s for sure.

Starting the game on speed 3, 2, or 1 doesn't make the game easier, just slower.  Since the game isn't fast to begin with there might be no advantage either way.

Yup and just makes it boring (slow- mo like the six million dollar man running ) lol until you get up there in the points.

29,300 - game is tough and I found out my P1 controller was activating the 3/6/9 row on certain disc presses. I swapped P1 and P2 controllers (INTV II) and doing a little better overall.

Disappointed I didn't make 80k.

Me too ,

it sucks when you die and all the robots are around where you spawn. 

I lost 4 lives in a row before I got out to reach my last score. 

They could  of gave you a  3 sec head start before the robots shot.

Not sure how much I like playing this now,but I know I was really good at this almost 40 years ago.

You do get a feel for it if you can have time and the patience to do it.

When you have more than 9 lives left the game starts using symbols to tell you how many are left. In that run that I posted I had ‘>’ lives at one point, but got killed with bots circling the spawn point. Whittled me down to 5 by the time I got out of trouble.
