Wow...so 81,060 is the current high score.  Gee...I better drink lots of caffeine-induced sodas or LOTS of coffee.

 

I'm going to try to capture video for this one.  My setup is kinda crude and something I believe Frankenstein himself would be proud of  :rofl:

7800 is hiding in a small cubby hole, just big enough for it.  This was a LOT of work to setup but I'm going to give it a shot.  The only sounds heard will be coming from the game itself.

I hope this works.

Well...game play footage is not of the quality I was after but it works.  

Came close.  79,280.  I'll try again but might just take a screenshot.  Not sure yet.  Making the videos are fun.  

 

And in case you are wondering, yes the video is too far to the left.  I was going to try out a new program that BB introduced me too.  I was going to have the box art remain present on the right side.  But the program kept crashing while exporting the final video work so that idea never happened.  I resorted back to Windows Movie Maker until I can figure out why the other program keeps crashing.

18790 The best I got, for now!!!!!!! B)

 

:mac_alert: STRONG LANGUAGE!

 

I noticed you have separate controls for bombs & missiles , assuredly a more civilized and ECO-friendly way of playing 

 

you would THINK with 2 button capability on the 7800 you would need to use the 2 buttons but you don't

 

basically I run through the levels with trigger down. a more scorched-Earth approach. if you read the backstory and you know the enemy eventually wins they takes the planet back, so HAMMER -DOWN !!!!!

Thanks a ton guys!!!!!

 

Ya chas10e I thought about doing that but it never came naturally o me in THIS game. Other shooters will spew a hail storm of rounds where this one is slower that way, to me anyway. I love smashing the button the rapid fire as fast as I can.

Don't just watch TV, PLAY IT!

Actually, I was shocked that kamakazi didn't surprise us at the last second with a higher score!
