I hated this game until I started attacking the side aliens instead of focusing on the bottom row all the time.

That is absolutely the key to success. That and being able to visualize them based on speed after they start going invis on you.

 

Also, invis + smart bombs = excitement! 🙂

It may have taken him longer than anticipated.  I don't think we've had a leaderboard update that includes The Game That Shall Not Be Named yet, so there's a couple to catch up on.

Space Armada is great. I like the progression of alien weaponry. The two boards of complete invisibility are tough to get past, then the green spinners are wicked. The larger sized aliens and the ability to take out two with one shot are likely concessions to the fact the the Intellivision side buttons are painful to use in high-firing games like this. But the two in one shot feature turns out to be fun. I wish the score was on the screen at all times, and especially the saucer score, which varies greatly and can be up to 32x alien value.

Ah my fingers! How are you all able to get such high scores?! I got to the level with invisible enemies, which was cool, but man, the buttons on the controller are definitely going to limit my play. I may need to try this one on emulation.

So it’s game over for us huh?  Lol.

It was a good run. 🙂

 

Although if you look at that screenshot you can see what an unsatisfying end that was. One miss-timed shot into the bunker or I'd have had a whole new level. 

 

I'd completely forgotten how the saucers behave later on, that was fun to see again 🙂

I can’t seem to get to the later levels to see how that saucer reacts. The aliens seem way too big for the screen which makes the game too hard in my opinion.

It's definitely a rhythm game as much as anything. Since those aliens are so big, you really can't afford to miss, so it becomes a matter of stick-and-move with the fire button held down on a good run. 

 

Dawdling at the end of a level for saucers to repair bunkers is helpful, but the real choke point are those 2 full invis levels. Real easy to lose track of what's left. 

 

Definitely interesting in as much as its a game you rarely lose due to running out of lives.
