Really?! ... Had no idea.

 

You guys can vacation a bit if you like... 🙃

Daa-yum. Congrats! Fun way to be reminded. 🙂

 

I'd like to say I have a shot at that, but that's a full 2 levels higher than I've ever managed. Impressive. Most impressive.

Thanks! You're pretty tough out of the gates... you might be able to catch it.

 

Will be interesting to see how I do this time around.

1st try at it,

I forgot you still have a life at number 0. I sat there, and got shot down. 😛

This game is hard!

 

I'm finding the tracer shots tricky too - I try to shoot one of the flying demons while avoiding its bomb and end up pulling my shot off target!

It's definitely harder to stick-and-move with edge shots because you pull off target when you dodge back out.  On the other hand, it is immensely satisfying to hook shot the boss. 🙂

Has anyone figured out what to do about the dreaded Black Screen of Death? I had this exact same issue the last time this game was on the High Score Club. d2a4d85caaa9da1d9c8479aa5c4ddb4d.jpg

I'm not sure, but what I try to do is avoid pressing the disc pad in anyway when the transform of ship to planet or planet to mothership is occuring? :o

I was having a great game and then I lost my last 4 guys trying to defeat the 3rd demon ship.

My goal is 10k if I can get that 3rd one.....

Hey everyone,be safe and healthy.

Stay at home if you can and catch up on your video games!!!👍😃

That keeps happening to me - I'm stuck on 7,400 - just can't get past the third ship at the moment.

Let me just hop in real quick with a starting score after about 20 minutes of play.

 

Also, if anyone cares, I'm playing on original hardware.

How do people feel about the auto-fire? With the tracer shots, it's uh... Especially wondering for those using original hardware.

For this moderator... I use auto, when my thumb hurts lol, and then take it off when it thumb is rested... 🤩

 

The auto fire is a tiny bit SLOWER, so I don't use it during mothership battles. Gotta hook the boss before she hooks me first. Just sayin... ;)

I like playing it without, personally. Thumbs be damned!

Question: if I send another score later, will it be valid for the competition?

I sent a 2nd one for Burgertime, but it was apparently not taken into account.

Just trying to learn the rules.

Yes any score that you submit

that is higher than the one you posted before is absolutely eligible. Just need to notify Jacob if you think a score has been missed.

I only use it for the second wave of demons (tentacled terrors?). For all the other stages, I just find the auto fire's timing makes it harder to hit anything. It does save your thumbs though!
