I'm sad that no-one else joined in this month, so I'll give the game a run through tonight on TG16 and post my score too. The game is fantastic, more people need to play!

Exed, you actually scored better than me throughout the game, but the final boss is worth 10,000,000 points, so I shot past at the end 8)

Well done. I lost a ton of lives on the previous area, and I couldn't make it through the boss rush. It's a great game.

Do you know about the 'gold' lives? I could never make it past the boss rush until I figured out those myself.

I tried using Weapon 2 mostly this time. I normally stick to weapon 3. I actually think weapon 2 is better for most stages, but weapon 3 is definitely helpful on stage 7 and stage 8 as it takes out the gun turrets and bubbles a lot faster and provides some shielding for your ship.

I always choose the shield as my secondary, because it's so clearly the best. That said, when I lost the shield I found the F power up to be useful with weapon 2 - the blast waves it creates add some much needed extra firepower that helped me through the pyramid stage.

I managed to get powered down right before the final boss, so I ended up fighting him with a peashooter and a homing missile icon I picked up right before the fight. They proved fairly useful actually - with Weapon 1, they shoot 8 homing missiles instead of 4.

Well I feel like an ass, I picked this game and didn't even play. :P

Will have to fire this up soon even though the month is over.

GOD, I should have paid attention to this subforum last month. This is my favorite TG-16 game hands down (at least of those that I've played), and I'm moderately beast at it. Damn it. Note to self - never ignore the Shmup of the Month.

Decent game here - I got my copy this past October. Seems a little easy to start but thats par for the course of most Compile games. I'll still post a score shortly.
