    This was a tough one!! Again not the best run I'm sure, but happy I was able to get through it and get the last patch score for this cart!
    Thanks for watching!

    Flying blindly right from the start then put up some great shooting after the first docking.

    Outstanding performance… Accepted!!!

    Well-deserved patch. Not many can say they earned this one.

    Agree with Greg, this one is surely one of the tougher ones!

    Nice recovery after a couple of two-shotter crappers LOL! I thought you were going to have another short one when your shields went out, then your lasers, but then I have a feeling you said to yourself, "uh uh .. screw that ... heading to the base", then relatively smooth sailing the rest of the way! Great laser efficiency, too ... didn't waste a bunch of shots. That's key! Accepted!

    Thanks Garrett!! This was definitely the definition of 'squeeze the cheeks and hope for the best LOL!'. I almost did reset it after the shields and lasers went out but realized after the first few runs that they all bunched up at the bottom right corner so I was pretty confident that I would still be able to find the ships without the radar in that area (it was just a matter of surviving through the first inital couple waves). That being said I've played this a few more times since, and I'm thinking it might not be possible to finish game 4 without losing at least one base. (Although I could be wrong, lots more 'exploring' left to do on this one).

    No lie, I have tried games 3 and 4 a few times now-completing either one is no joke, and doing it with a good score is nearly impossible.

    I do believe in "skilluck", but not so much on this game, you have to be on point!!!
