    I'm finding this one a lot harder then Galaga, you're just so slow moving across the screen, I didn't think an 8 way joystick made any diffrence on games that had 2 way joysticks but is it worth switching it over?

    Hopefully I'll get Ted in later in the week to give me a hand and I can post a better score. My screen shots stretched as well but what's with the Woody Wood Pecker laugh to start the game?

      Havn't made it to the Challenging Stage yet...


      FYI if you want to unstrectch your screenshot, load in into Paint, goto "Image" menu then "Strecth/Skew" and do Vertical Stretch 33%.
      Try to resist the urge to give yourself a Gameroom style 4.7 million bonus score.

        This game is so simple yet so difficult.

        The slow pace forces you to be very patient. I keep moving around too much and wandering into bullets.

        I find I have better luck with something like Dodonpachi than this! That's supposed to be one of the hardest shooters on MAME and I find Galaxian harder.

        I will give this one a proper go this weekend.

              Does the cheat on wave 1 count..? You know, where the Galaxians eventually run out of bullets and you play and play and play..

                    The only trick I know with Galaxian is when you hit the Flagship they stop firing for a few seconds, but that is just part of the game, and well known.

                      First wave, bottom left two blue critters.. Don't shoot them and they will loop and loop and loop and eventually the game runs out of bullets. You then cruise the rest of the game shoting the enemy, but with no return fire from them.


                      Disclaimer.. Memory haze - Pretty sure its the first screen and the bottom left, or it could be the bottom right critters.

                        I have heard about this for Galaga but not Galaxian, might have to try it. I can't find anything on the net about it, only for Galaga.

                        To answer your original question no its not counted, those sort of cheats really ruin the spirit of the game

                          While seaching for some net chatter about the above, I found some good tips and tricks listed here, including some from Robert Mruzcek (spelling?) himself. The current World Record of 1.6 mill was set only just last year by a dude form the Netherlands.
