        FYI everyone, please note there was a ROMset rename...

        0.106-0.137: polaris - "Polaris (set 1)"
        0.137u4-0.200: polarisa - "Polaris (First revision)"

        ... now how on earth do I play this thing?

                  I am not surprised, a great many of the 1980 games and pre were gone by the time many gamers hit the arcades with Pac-man, Galaxian and co.

                    Interesting ol' relic from the past that I've never played. Nice tough game to finish on too; quite claustrophic when the action gets tight. Love the atmospheric sounds.

                    The closest thing I've played that I can think of is probably Wavy Navy on C64 which was quite a unique little shooter. https://www.c64-wiki.com/wiki/Wavy_Navy

                        I was hoping for some kind of score increase but wasn't expecting to break 20K let alone 30K. I'll take it though

                            Still finding out what works survival wise. Not sure how to repeat the 1500 bonuses yet on the end of level planes other than shooting them as low to the water as possible.

                            Some great scores for the game already so far. TIF's already gone past Doron's mark on RU:
