Awesome game!  The typical level of difficulty should be button #4. That is the one where Activision would award a patch if you completed it, plus it’s the perfect amount of challenge. The bottom 3 are way too easy and the top 3 are too hard. Level 4 is perfect, right in the middle, where you need to destroy 5 Dreadnaughts.

I play tested for 30 mins, and decided on 4. :)

Why not let people play any level they like (except level 1)?  Scores are limited at lower levels anyway.

You do bring up a good point. There’s no way to build many points in lower levels, and the higher levels are so hard it’s tough to achieve a high score. I guess it could go either way.

It’s amazing. Try to shoot and bomb everything you can. Slow down the ships by bombing the red engines in the back, then attack with fury!!

Thanks!!

For level 4, you need to destroy 5 ships. You will see the number 5 in the top right corner, like my image shows. And the number on the bottom right of the screen shows how many of your ships you have left when it finishes. And yes it will end right after the 5th ship is destroyed.

I’m excited for this one. It’s one of my favorites. Can’t find my cart though, so I just ordered one from eBay. I love the sounds, and (not to be punny) the sense of dread in this game.

Absolutely, it's one of the best games for the Inty in my opinion.

5 will be the max anyway for level 4, which I did earlier today...see above.  I would expect everyone to do the same, it's just a matter of points which will be based on the random types of ships everyone encounters and how much each ship is destroyed.  Scores should be very close in this one!!

That's a shame.  I think it's awesome.  Great sound and gameplay if you ask me.
