    Exerion Description

    This is a shoot-em-up game with parallax effects in the background and a nice simulation of inertia in the control of the ship. You have lots of enemies and two kinds of shooting, slow and fast.

    Cheats, Tricks and Bugs

    BUG: In the challenge stage, if you shoot all 40 aliens you normally get a bonus charge of 60. Sometimes a red hydra comes out during this stage. If you shoot it and all 40 aliens, you get a total of 41. The game seems to fail the test of 'hits=40' and only gives you a bonus charge of 41.
    HINT: Try so build your supply of bullets for the fast cannon so it can be used in critical situations.

    HINT: To get a high score, if you do not miss any shots your bonus score will keep on doubling to 10000 then reset to 000. When at 10000 miss a shot then bonus score will revert to 5000.

    Game Play

    In this game you have two weapon systems: one slow double-shot cannon and one fast single-shot cannon. With each enemy hit by the slow cannon you get one shot added to the fast cannon ammunition supply. After each stage there is a challenge stage where you can also build your fast-shot supply.

      Cool game, I find the way it moves very frustrating, but fair, and different so therefore interesting. Not much time to play this week, I hope to find time to beat this score on Monday arvo.

      Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

        One of my all time fav's, maybe because I spent a fair whack of year 11 playing this in the common room instead of attending classes

          Had a couple tries - I like this game, though I'm not that good at it

          Especially like the huge pixellated bird/robots, reminds of the good old days of C64 gaming The inertia of the ship trying to avoid things can be interesting.

          Shudder to think of the winning score on this game - given the mad shmuppaz around here..

            I was having a hell of time with this, for some reason the version of MAME I was using would cause the game to reset once I had passed 100,000 and lost a life, One game I had 300,000 + and died and the game reset

            Went back to an earlier version of MAME and now it works!!

              Nice score DK, Ive got the original board for this one, never really played it though, except to test the board, looking forward to having a bash later in the week.

              Are the correct dips lives=3 / Bonus =10,000 / Difficulty=Easy ?

                    Huge opener

                    Can I ask for a tip

                    Should you use both fire buttons at once to get the triple shot most of the time, or just mostly the double shot ?

                      I mostly use the double shot, I only use the rapid when in trouble . First couple of screens I don't touch the rapid. You will see why

                      BTW its all in the tips and tricks in the first post

                        madly trying to hit f12 as I was reaching 1 million & blew last 2 men
                        like donkey kong says only use rapid fire when in trouble, you should be able too built up a fair bit of ammo for the cannon that way
                        Our local squash court use to have this & bosconian, reminds me a bit of phoenix

                          Top effort Fringert!!! You know you can hit F12 after the game is over, when you put your initials in.
