    I've noticed if you don't crash before the timer on the lower right reaches zero you will gain an extra life. Otherwise you have to wait until you get 30,000 points for that extra life. If you can get an extra life both times that two extra lives. I agree with Justin...take your time, control your speed, watch out for baddies (blast 'em when you can!), get in those trucks, avoid helicopter drops, cracks, and other cars. Yea. Sunsoft's early NES titles had poor manuals. They didn't detail the games very well. They improved on that by the time Blaster Master and others to follow were released. Platoon's manual was of no help at all. Best Sunsoft games in my opinion are Blaster Master, Journey To Silius, and Fester's Quest. Although those games are probably the toughest games they ever released. Fester's Quest was a pain in the butt. I never could get far in Silius but loved the music so I kept trying. Blaster Master I could get to the end but only one time did I actually beat the game. Never played it since but it still remains one of my favorites. Spy Hunter is OK, not a favorite, and the manual could have done better explaining the game.

    One other thing I need to highlight is that the light blue car is also on your team and you will apparently be penalized by shooting the light blue car as well. It's a little confusing, but it's the way the game plays. So, to recap: FRIENDS: Red Cars Red Motorcycles Light blue car ENEMIES: All dark blue cars Helicopters

    I think I've learned quite a bit from watching your videos, so thanks for that. I want to try again very soon. Sadly, I lost my hard drive last night. I'll have to restore everything, including my emulators. Will try ASAP. I think the main issue I've had with the game is going way too fast. And now I see you also need to avoid shooting the "light-blue" cars too! Dang. I'm dense.

    Oh guys, I'm feeling so overwhelmed at work lately. Please forgive me for venting, but it's gotten so difficult. Do more with less. I just feel so bad that I can't seem to keep up.

    I'm going to say that the manual for this game is one of the worst I've seen. It only vaguely mentions that enemies are blue. Nothing about scoring. Thank you guys for the tips!

    I had no idea on the red cars and motorcycles! Thanks, Justin.
