Just a quick note. Since there have been no scoring entries yet, I took the liberty of changing the speed level from Disc (Fastest Level) to Button 1 (Medium Fast Level). Disc Level is ridiculous. 🙄

 

RATIONALE: Disc is way too FAST, button 3 is way too SLOW, we played Medium Level in Season 13 so Medium Fast Level it is and there you have it.... 👍

A little hint here. In order to get to the Zeroes Screen you have to go thru the I/O Transport. You cannot get there by just going right or left. You have to be 'transported' there. C'mon guys. It's NOT that hard. To me Space Spartans / Bomb Squad / Microsurgeon are MUCH harder to learn...... 🙄

It depends..  For people that are allergic to manuals like myself, 

bomb squad and space spartans you can figure out by trial and error.. 

I had to actually break out in hives and read the manual for this one.  Microsurgeon I don't know, since I have no idea how to play that one either :)

The games are a lot better if you take the five minutes to read the instructions.

Well I read manual played 3 games so far and my score is 0

AUGHHHHHH!!!!

Ok well maybe this weekend I will post a quick tutorial video on how to score in this game. I will show how to get zeroes, how to beat the Recognizer, how to get energy, how to get to the Zeroes screen, how to change the numbers from 1 to 0 and then how to battle the MCP. That should help scores increase from just 0..... :P👍

The instructions gives you a few key pieces of information, like you don't score points until you clear a set of RAM chips.  The other key thing the instructions tells you is that the RAM chips are not on the starting circuit board.  Best thing to do is to keep using the I/O until it takes you to the RAM.
