200,180. The last two lives lost were the result of highway robbery by the game itself. That's the nicest way I can describe it without getting an admin warning lol. Wow.

I played it as a kid, as did many others when it was released. I maxed it out once but that was ages ago. As I posted previously, the game becomes slightly easier when you figure out the patterns of the enemies.

I can share some tips:

  • Keep your ship towards the left edge of the screen.  Thar be less bullets to dodge over there because most of the enemies move left to right. 
  • Don't move a lot.  If your ship is covering the entire range of the screen, I've found you are going to get in trouble.  Getting stuck on the right edge unable to move right is sure death.
  • On those levels with the zigzag enemies, carve a path and then shoot bites from there.  And it's OK to lose lives on these levels.  They get replenished every 10k. 
  • DO NOT lose lives on the levels with enemies that just move left to right only. That's where you build up a stash of extra lives.

Man.  I tried that and died a LOT.  Maybe each copy is made differently?  Only thing I do know is the enemies in mine shoot everywhere.

I would have posted but I never came close to 70,000 let alone my best score I already posted.
