Manual tips txt:

 

CONSOLE AND CONTROLLERS
RESET
Press the reset button on your console to start the game. Each time RESET is pressed, the game starts over.

1-PLAYER GAME
To start a 1-player game, press anything on your hand controller except the number 2 key.

FIRE BUTTON
Press the upper action keys to fire regular shots from your magic wand. Hold in the upper action key for unlimited, 
repeated firing.

AUTO FIRE
While playing a game, you can press any keypad key on your hand controller to start an automatic firing mode. 
To stop auto fire, 
press the upper action key until it fires a shot.

CONTROLLER ACTION
Press the disc on your hand controller to move the magic wand in the direction you want it to go.

EXTRA SPEED
To speed up the movement of your wand, hold down the lower action key on your hand controller.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SCORING
You can score a total of 999,999 points before the score rools back to zero. Point values are listed below.

Centipede body segment 10 points 
Centipede head 100 points 
Spider (distant range) 300 points 
Spider (medium range) 600 points 
Spider (close range - look out!) 900 points 
Flea 200 points 
Scorpion 1000 points 
Mushroom (totally eliminated) 1 point 
Mushroom (shot 1 to 2 times) 5 points 
Poison Mushroom (totally eliminated) 1 point 
Poison Mushroom (shot 1 to 2 times) 5 points 
Poison Mushroom (not shot at all) 5 points 
Bonus Wand every 10,000 points 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HELPFUL HINTS
Shoot away mushrooms in a straight to create a "corridor." When the Centipede reaches this "gap," it will fall 
straight down the battlefield and can be easily picked off. 
Since the flea doesn't appear until you have eliminated most of the mushrooms near you, you can set up a shield to 
prevent this lightning-fast pest from striking. Simply refrain from shooting away mushrooms near your magic wand. 
Shoot Centipede heads to create new heads out of the body segment left behind. Since heads are worth 10 times the 
point value of body segments, you'll score lots of points. 
Each creature makes a distinctive sound. By becoming familiar with these sounds, you will know without looking, 
what is attacking and where it is on the screen.

I will try to do better!

I realize that if I cant outscore M-crew in this game he will have beaten my score in every game of the HSC.

I do try to be consistent,but I was hoping not to be consistently bad!😄

Damn that's close!

It's great when you get on a scoring roll. Those spiders move incredibly fast and dangerously,get out of the way on those higher levels.👍

Like m-crew I've never really given this game much attention. It's great though. Simple graphics but very good gameplay.

First try

Its a frustrating game. The more I play this the more I think how did someone get a high score like that... I havent broke my last score and I cant even count the hours on hours i have been playing this game.... You wait and see how crazy that spider gets.  Then the speed of the centipedes starts there cycle again from slow to crazy fast white one's'

 

I have changed my strategy multiple times nothing seems to work..

To tell you the truth, I played 5 or 6 games after this one and only got close to that first score once and never beat it  I see what you mean about it being frustrating, I just haven't played enough I suppose for that frustration to set in :D
