Amy holds current high score of 644,150



The purpose of this game is to fly through the solar system and reach Earth. The other planets that have you travel to before Earth are Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. It only takes two warps to arrive at Neptune, but all others including Earth take three warps to get to. Each time you reach a planet, there is a Challenge Stage where you try to destroy as many enemies as possible. After reaching Earth, there is a Challenge Stage followed by a very fast "three warps to Neptune" stage. After this, the levels and the background music start over.

Wow forgot what a great score AMY achieved last time round, and considering she is not a big shmup fan :). Kudos to you, you must tell us your tips once the round is finsihed;)
Got to spend a few hours with my cab tonight and a few bourbons and coke , it got better, but then went to shit :lol around the fifth can althought I was cracking 100,000 with out losing a man after the third.
Then the running constantly back upstairs to help the old man "yelling wolf :rolleyes" but you don't wan't to hear about that :lol

Great game and had me very addicted tonight , I remember the last time it came up in MGL I was just so happy to reach earth for the first time :o

Mission for me is to beat my best score of 219,000


Edit :updated score mission accomplished on best score now to beat Foot and Spacies:)

I forgot about Level 20 when they come speeding out! ****ers got me!

I made up a controller last night which made a massive difference. I was playing with a very poor chinese stick and crap buttons with Yenox switches and was averaging around 180-200k.

Now running LS-32s (rounded inserts :D) and Sanwa OB 30s and first game today...BOOYYAAAA!!

I swear I was much better than this when I was a kid :lol

I read through the last time this game came up and the guys blowing their trumpets didn't post a score! Just like the old 'I had it right there but it got off the hook' and 'you should have seen it, I swear it was THIS big' story.

Nice score Foot. You must have a good remember for the chance stages.
You got 1 level higher than me and you have 100k more!!!

Just had another game and got 500k but Level 51.

Foot
6th March 2009, 05:49 PM
It's not just the chance stages, but how you play each level. You need to work out how to get the most from each attack and the three bonus thingy's

I have decided MCA's are not responsive enough and changed to a Zippy I had sitting around, instantly improved my game, may have to order some Sanwa's now. What are the buttons you are using Spacies. Changing Joystick added a good 50,000 and found it more responsive.

I found that with getting all the enemies as they come out gives a nice bonus.

You made Earth mate ?? By that score I think you did. Now you and I just have to get through another round of planets.:)


Mate I'm just using MCA gear.... If I change will I get another 50K :D

I don't know if these MCA sticks are just worn or what but the responsiveness is not the same, so many times I was like I pushed left or right WTF new stick and no problem.
Change your sticks I dare you :badgrin

Also improved my Bombjack score by 500,000 so I'm Sticking with the sticks

Thought I'd give it a whirl. Probably my favourite game of all but I haven't touched it in months. 202,600 first shot and made it to the wave after Mars.

Better than I've ever done :)

All the games I'd played after that one sucked :laugh:

Yeah mate that earth stage is the killer, I found you just have to keep moving especially using the top of the screen on the Earth Warps.
Nice score, you would have to beat me :laugh:
Did you make it to Earth the second time? I didn't on my 400,000+ score but was racing the clock as I had dinner on was swinging around looking at the clock . I think 500,000 is very doable once you get over Earth Block.

:lol Mate, i almost gave up, then thought, ive got half hour so i gave it one more shot. I was on my second Mars warp with that score, and started to think about what was coming up:( LOST IT!!!!

I reckon 3 Earth trips and a 700+ score would be possible.

Yeah half the fun is playing and pushing yourself for a better score, nothing like a bit of comp.
I doubled my best ever Gyruss score so got to be happy with that.

You know I think that is the best part of the MGL sticking to a game for a week playing the best AA has to offer and beating each others scores. Just like in the Arcade. A lot of the games, just playing MAME randomly , I would give up if I found it to difficult and move on. This way you stick to it and try to beat the damn thing.

Glad its back :D

You sick man :laugh: I know what you mean you get a foot in (excuse the pun) past a certain stage and can just keep going. I need to play it more as well especially getting the enemy bonus's as they came out in formation in the normal warp stages.
Also don't have all the challenge screens down pat yet, lots of improvement can be made.

Thats a fairly healthy line up for round 1.
Congrats to Foot. I couldn't play anymore because it was driving me nuts.
I am in the same boat as DK, I reckon if I tried a bit harder on the chance stages and shooting them as they appeared I could have done better.

Rock on!

I must be the only one who thinks I was lucky even to get the score I got and didn't see any real constant improvement - too much dying for silly reasons :lol

Although I'm guessing (cos I never made it even once) that it's a bit like Time Pilot - when you pass Earth stage and get back to the beginning stages it's a bit easier?

Onwards to Donkey Kong and the challenge to see if I can get over 100K :laugh:
