Surprised that this appeared on the Master System but not NES, and then the sequel was on SNES but not Genesis. Hard game, especially once you die and lose the power-ups. Haven't gotten past the first boss yet, but man does it look cool. Now to read the manual and see what I'm missing, hahaha.

 

25,200

BTW, why doesn't it show the score as you play? Maaaaaaaan.

Ooh, I might as well take part seeing as the Master System is one of my favourite consoles. 

I have the game in the loft and will dig it out but I have used my modded Xbox for now. 

102100     Lost all my lives underneath the big ship on the third level.

New score is 298,100. I do not think I will try again.  I got to the beginning of the seventh stage and I usually would have to take my first continue in the second part of that stage anyway.  I do not think I could improve my score too much more.

Beat the first boss! Didn't hurt that I had the little helper dude, shot it right at the center of the alien, and let it blast away as I worked on the other parts. Don't know if I'll play much more, it did get a bit frustrating. I like all the aliens in the second level tho.

Insane score jeremiahjt! Impressive!

Thanks. About a year ago I decided I was going to beat this game and I eventually did. Not on one credit or anything, but I did beat it.
