    Submission Message
    Only 1 run in video, made it to the refueling station 3 times. Sorry for the blurriness of the video, I tried to zoom in on the score at the end. I also power-cycled the game after my run, as well.

    Settings should be evident from gameplay, but the galloping ghost webpage also hosts pictures of the board/dips:

    Astro Fighter is a two-dimensional, space shoot 'em up arcade game released in 1980. It was developed and published by Data East in Japan and was published outside Japan by Gremlin/Sega.


    Screenshot of Astro Fighter

    The game of Astro Fighter consists of 4 waves and a refueling stage, which are then repeated with increasingly higher difficulty. The player's task is to eliminate the four successive waves of different types of attacking craft, while avoiding being hit by missiles and bombs, and then refuel by shooting the 'GS' ship before repeating the process. The player starts with 3 lives and receives a bonus life on reaching a score of 5000. 300 bonus points are received for shooting each 6 falling bombs and for 950 for hitting the GS ship accurately on the first shot. A very large bonus of 10,000 is given for getting through 4 waves and refueling by using exactly 2 shots more than the minimum needed. As the higher levels of Astro Fighter are difficult to survive consistently, even for the best players, the highest scores have been achieved by those earning the 10,000 bonus deliberately.


    David Nelson holds the official record for this game with a score of 37,150 points.

    Thanks, everyone. I realize I'm not the best at these vertical shooters but I try! :) There are also a ton of secrets in this one, like getting 10,000 points when killing the boss...anyone know how to do that trick?
