Game 5: Moon Patrol


Nominated by DKong


http://www.klov.com/images/11/1181242138161.png


DKong holds high score of 101,690



The object is to complete the varying legs of the patrol course as quickly as you can while avoiding rocks, craters, mines, and attacks from enemy craft. Your buggy has two guns: a short-range cannon that fires ahead of you and an anti-aircraft gun that fires upwards. You can use the cannon to blast away rocks that block your progress. Most rocks will crumble in one hit, but large ones qill need two hits. There are also tiny rocks that can only be destroyed with precision shooting (otherwise, you will have to jump it).
Your on-screen display has three indicator lights to warn you of approaching danger.

When the top one flashes, there are enemy saucers coming in. Attack them using your gun and avoid their bombs. The spinning saucers are particularly nasty, as they bomb the ground ahead of you and make fresh craters.
The middle light indicates a minefield. Proceed with caution here and time your jumps to avoid the mines on the road.
Finally, the bottom light indicates an enemy behind you. Sometimes, an enemy hovercraft will stalk behind you for a bit and then charge at you. You need to jump so it passes under you and then take it out with your cannon when you come back down. (http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?game_id=8747)

You bastards! I've been hammering this thing for 2 nights thinking I might get a midweek on a game I love (and wasted a LOT of 20s on back in the day) and now I check back in I'm not even close!

ROFL :cry

Bah, never. Not only does my first round mine strategy NOT work on Champion but it just gets insane from there. I played my FIRST game of it for ages Weds night and got 74K and thought "wow I can get an AA high score!". Little did I know how much skill it's gonna take to overhaul 100k.

Just out of interest what stage comes after Champion?

Cheers

There definatly is a "technique" for the later land mines;) Press on, and you will work it out for sure.

Yeah I have got through - mainly thanks to the fact that stage is much shorter on Champ. I only had one life left afterwards though so I didn't make it much further...

Go the Aus Health system:blink:

I know I just panicked and had to separate the bitch's , hand streaming with blood ended pulling my dog up from the collar then the third dog got involved and it was Wrestle-mania eat you heart out dogs going sick every where.

I must of first played this when I was about 10 or 11, but my money didn't last long at all, so I left it alone. I've improved this past few days & got through the first course - mind you it's not hard to improve on my previous score '900 - B' :D

I'm away for a week, so unless I get a better score soon - this will be my lot.

Some good scores so far, bad luck with the joystick-hand there DK :(

No funny though how I reefed her from the neck to get away from the fight( (thought I broke her back just to get her out of the shit(i didn't)) and then the third dog joined in it was like wrestlmania at one stage.
The dogs have my blood on there fur, they owe me one:D

Well all I can say is i'm definitely crap at this game, just couldn't get the timing right on the mines. Didn't play it as a kid in the arcades so i'll blame that.
