    Fantastic score!!!

    Hindsight 20/20 and all that, I mentioned playing this for several days-this game is actually the game that caused me to seriously fall for the 2600, I think.
    I got one, started playing around with it a little with no serious ambitions, got a Harmony "just because", and this game really made me sit up and pay attention/respect!

    If you don't "know", I'm sure you can surmise-the top scores on this are pretty close to "all" the points you can get. When I mentioned playing it so long, it was basically trying to get hit one less time every run for a few more points.

    Something I can't tell if you are thinking about in the strategy, I could only sorta do it, it's pretty hard, but you can time out your offense where you are building one smaller defensive line, instead of having it so scattered, I think it's easier to do on the left than on the right. I want to say fire as the line first appears from the left, and "guide" the shot to hit right before the line covers your target(I know that's confusing, sorry...).

    Doing Great, Man!

    Accepted!!!

    Thanks Roger! Still trying to clean the run up a little, every time I try to tighten that first line up it seems to throw my timing off on the second line. For some reason I seem to do better with the old 'kamikaze' approach it seems lol. Still won't give up on this title and hoping to improve a little with time!!
