    Thrust on the c64 is fantastic. I have it but my disk drive has given up the ghost. Played it a ton back in the day. Worth a few games for the intro music alone. Good luck to the competitors :)

    The original game was keyboard only. I'm not sure about using joystick on an emulator for this game...

    I don't mind playing with keyboard as long as I can define the controls, the original controls are not really of my taste

    if you are redefining your own keyboard mapping on emulator that's cheating :-P

    I didn't even know C64 Thrust supported joysticks!? Kinda silly rule. Don't think I would have used one anyway. Whilst playing the Atari 2600 version I was wishing for a keyboard :)

    Great score! Did you get the reactors in levels 4 and/or 5?

    I only came across this game in the internet age, it seemed to come up a lot on 'favorite' threads/lists. I played a similar game on a buddies Atari ST called Oids back in the day.

    I didn't mind the default controls. I did remove they keycaps for the two special windows keys on the left on my keyboard and wedged my capslock key to prevent it from going down. I had several good games ruined by hitting those things! I see no problems with remapping keys.

    yeah it was unknown to me as well, till I saw you guys playing it.

    nope reactors only on first 3 levels, I guess once we become really good on this game we could try reactors on higher levels, but for now its a suicide plan

    also what the **** is the reactor doing on last level before reverse gravity? it's on that deep cave next to the ball and its even unreachable WTF!?

    Thrust 2 is hot garbage.

    I think that reactor is deep down so you cannot skip the level. You can skip levels by blowing the reactor and skedaddling before it blows up, even without the pod.

    I believe that if you skip a level by blowing the reactor the next level the enemies shot bullets like crazy, I’m not sure about this but the few times I skipped I noticed them shooting too much ...
