Sorry for this last second update here (though technically, its too late for last second I guess).

...Air Garret... My socks are gone!
Fast burrets. The Helicopters. Tanks. The laser weapon. The bombs. Can barely get to stage 2.
Why is this reminding me of Raiden?

Great game. Love the bit where the space shuttle's boosters kick in, looks awesome. There's an extend at 1.5M if anyone can reach it...

So how does it feel to be at the top of all the currently contested score threads? :lol: I went into all out beast mode on my 595K score even getting an over 90% 2000pt rate on Stage 1, and then I'm still 700K behind! Stage 3 must be a gold mine of pts!

Just noticed I'm down to 5th in Aero Fighters 2! I need to work on that one :)

Scoring tips for Air Gallet - not much in the way of secrets here. Just keep picking up those 2k coins. Just as important as collecting the big coins, though, is collecting all the coins. Do that and you get a 100k 'Perfect' bonus at the end of the level (I think it just applies to coins, not sure if you have to no miss the level as well).

Survival helps with your score too - once your shot is fully powered-up, all the additional power-up icons are worth 2k, and there are tons of these on Stage 3, so that's worth a lot. Holding onto your bombs isn't quite as important, these are only worth 5k each at the end of the level, so you're better off using them when you need them.

I need to get my high scores in quick this month, as I'll be away for most of the 2nd half of March, from 18th till the end of the month...
