LOVE this one, finally a game I at least know!

I got my Harmony cart a couple years ago, all excited, found this game straightaway, and played it pretty exclusively the first several days I had my Harmony, couldn't put it down!!!

34,983 was worth it tho, haha , there aren't many more points than that!

I don't expect to do that well again, but I do know I enjoy the game, so yay!!!

OK, first off the link doesn't work.

 

Second, here's my first score: 18,368

 

I had no idea the bottom forcefield closes in when the last cannon is visible.

I had never played Death Trap before, but it's a pretty unique and cool little game! After reading the manual I sat down to give it a try and ended up playing for two and a half hours straight until I finally beat it. There's a lot of strategy required timing your shots on the left and right cannons precisely to leave big open spaces for when the final cannon appears, since the game doesn't give you much time at all to destroy it. A tough game, but a fun one too and definitely beatable with some practice. :)

 

Death Trap (Game X, B/B Difficulty): 33,567

 

Bonus: Yay! I beat the game! 😃

Love this game!  Haven't played it in a long time, so I'll have to brush off the rust and get a couple practice games in.  :)

32,189!  I think the real challenge is going to be how to squeeze those few extra points out because once you figure out how to beat the game, it going to come down to how many times you get hit, and how quick and accurate you are with your shots.  Here are a few tips:

 

1.  Plan your shots.  Don't just fire randomly.  Otherwise, you'll end up with lots of little holes to squeeze shots through.  You're going to need a large opening if you want to have a chance to kill the middle power generator.

2.  If you know IT is about to fire on you, stay on one side.  When his fireball gets close to you, wraparound to the other side to avoid getting hit.

3.  Timing is everything in this game, so learn when you're about to be fired on and have a plan to counter attack.  Running around aimlessly is a recipe for frustration.

I can beat the square mode(not sure of name) but not X 
 

The symbols which represent skill level are called SQUARE (Easy), X or FLOWER (Normal) and DIAMOND (Hard) at my own discretion.
