Star Strike instructions:

http://www.intellivision.us/intvlibrary/Games/Manuals/star_strike/gallery.php

 

Good choice on the game mode.  It will be interesting to see how this works out.

 

Some or maybe all cartridges have a bug with the left controller.  So if it doesn't fly good, use the right controller.

 

Edit:

I'm thinking it might be better to let people choose any skill level 1 to 4.  If someone can't win level 4 they won't be able to post a score.

I think I have faith, everyone can get a score in on default... if not they can post the screenshot anyway.

And for the bonus game; do you mean press keypad five (level 6), or level 5 (press keypad four)

Technically it says game five (level five) which is keypad four but it's worth clarifying.  I wish mattel/aph just used the corresponding keypad numbers.

I think the disc is level 4 and the bonus game is keypad 5.... So games 4 and 5 for the bonus.... It's fine, I played both lastnight.... We don't want level 6, it's a sure death for the Earth.... :(

1st Entry - Kind of a cool game. I just wish the ship was armed a little better like with the laser from Dreadnaught Factor..... 😁👍

If you press five on the keypad you're playing level six.  If you press six on the keypad you're playing level four, same as pressing disc.  There's no way to save the earth in level six, you can only delay its destruction.

Yeah I just looked at the overlay. I pressed keypad 5 for the bonus game and played level 6 I guess. I will have to depost my bonus score cuz it's the wrong level. Uggghhhh

 

So it's disc for the game, and keypad number 4 for the bonus game yes?

Are the warp speeds in this game useful???

Here's the thing on those... Since your score counts down as you go along, the faster you can bomb those 5 targets on the ground, the more points you're going to end up with. So, the trick is using the warp speeds to "fast-forward" to the next ground target. Problem is, if you overshoot, you're hosed. 

 

That's my take, at least.

Yeah and it makes those targets infinitely harder to hit.....

Exactly, and here's what I try to do for that... bomb a target, then warp speed for a few seconds, deactivate warp speed, wait for target. I've never even thought to try hitting a ground target while in warp speed. lol.

 

EDIT: Eventually, I would think that you're going to get a "feel" for how long you can engage the warp speed between targets.

Oh and something else that makes me insta-rage-quit this game is when I get hit by an alien ship and it knocks out my early warning radar alarm. I don't know if I can ever be good at this game without that function of the ship because there is NOTHING visually to alert you to an upcoming ground target.

Lol yeah I've already encountered all of that, not fun. You then have to anticipate when the target is coming.... 😑

Awesome!  It’s an excellent game, typically known as a favorite on the system by many people.
