Laser Gates-42,319

Ah, not grand, not terrible-this is a really fun game, most of my experience back in the day(uhh...a couple years ago)was Laser Volley, pretty much same/same.

Good game, good pick-I'm sure I'll play this quite a bit, hoping to reach that third gate!!!

I had never played Laser Gates before this morning but what a cool game! Imagic did a great job on this one, though gosh dang is it ever hard! I don't have much trouble avoiding the gates or tunneling through the walls, but it seems like the missiles and fried green space tomatoes of death get me every time. 

 

 

Laser Gates (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 38,999

I only played a time or two for my score so far, can't *really* help with strategy, but I remember on the tomatoes and the jumping Guys(from Laser Volley, again, same/same), once you reach a certain point of no return(close to them)you need to fly past them and try to turn around and shoot.

It IS a really good game, as you prolly know, I LOVE Doggone It!, but it takes a good while to get a "scoring" game in now, well over a half hour, this one doesn't seem like it takes too long to get a really good game going.

I *think* I remember you mentioning primarily using a flashback stick to play anymore-I had done so some in the past, easier on the hands, feels cheap as crap but IS responsive, I've actually used one myself primarily, since Dragster weeks(except during paddle weeks, obviously, ha!).

Good Luck getting to the third gate, I know you will!!!

Cool game, very hard. Anyone have tips on accurately shooting literally any of the things that come towards you? Lining up to get a missile or something that bounces around is pretty difficult. I like how things come at ya one at a time tho (at least where I am...). 

 

18,212- 1 thingy failsafe detonator destroyed

Got to the second detonator, and I forgot that they can be booby trapped... and that shooting them twice ENDS THE DARNED GAME!!

THE DETONATOR

 

The Detonator has 4 pins for all 4 stages.

Each new detonator after the destruction of first one (i.e., after the completion of Stage 1) will add a trapped pin.

Stage 2 - 1 trapped pin (3 normal) - chance 75%

Stage 3 - 2 trapped pin (2 normal) - chance 50%

Stage 4 - 3 trapped pin (1 normal) - chance 25%

 

Score ending with:

0 or 5 - no detonator destroyed (example: 9,800)

7 or 2 - 1 detonator destroyed (example: 25,012)

4 or 9 - 2 detonators destroyed (example: 50,514)

1 or 6 - 3 detonators destroyed (example: 75,621)

8 or 3 - 4 detonators destroyed (extremely hard to reach because of a short D-time)

 

@fakecortex @TRB_MetroidTeam - WHOOOPS, you are right, the trapped pins are randomized.

I'll remember that.  I destroyed the second detonator but ended up crashing and losing my shields.  Any strategies for those flying hot dogs...  I mean homing missiles?

Oh yes, better score: 43,484

THE DETONATOR

1470423035_LaserGates(1983)(Imagic)_3.thumb.png.9b606f55da5ec672f4e9f410f15715dc.png

The Detonator has 4 pins which I numbered as shown in the picture above.

I chose PIN 1 to destroy the 1st Detonator and PIN 2 to destroy the second one. To destroy the 3rd Detonator, choose PIN 3.

And PIN 4 to destroy the 4th and Final Detonator.

According to the manual tho, the booby-trapped pins are randomized 🤔 Are you finding it consistent for you?

Hello oyamafamily.
It's not true.
That's random.
