                    How did you go at Replay on this game?

                    The sounds on this game remind me of Wizard of Wor. And when you blow up, what a massive mess. I guess the programmer had to make sure it was very graphic and eat up some time, otherwise your game would only last a few seconds ...

                    A good start though. It gets pretty hectic.

                    I would have thought a keyboard is better than a joystick for this game?

                    Very nice score. Top for now.

                        G'day everyone. Nice to be back into the MGL zone. I've never played or seen this one before. Primitive but a quick burst of fun nonetheless - it's like a reflex test.
                        I wonder if it changes much or simply gets faster and more intense?

                        My thoughts exactly! Even when you're shooting the little space ship in between sequences, my immediate association went back to hunting down the Warluk in Wizard of Wor. The crazy over the top death sequence definitely channels those sounds.

                        Some great scores so far. TIF has cracked 200 k on RetroUprising. http://www.retrouprising.com/arcade....ts&gameid=6295

                          My Replay score was 169,750pts (this is not a submission to MGL just a link to my video from Replay):

                          I was truly disappointed when ReplayFX decided not to have the RWC this past year at the festival. I don't know if they'll be bringing it back but I hope they do. They had originally slated it last year but at a smaller prize pool but then it was removed completely. Bummer.

                          As for what this game reminds me of - it's Cosmic Ark for Atari 2600. One of the two phases in that game is just like this one.

                            It runs on the same hardware as Wizard of Wor and Gorf. Wow and Gorf have some extra hardware if I remember correctly. I am actually researching Wow for my podcast.

                              It doesn't change. It gets faster and the ships don't stay on the screen as long and the missiles start much closer to you. If I remember correctly the not TIE fighter does less circles before crashing into you.
