    Control a WWII-style plane over 32 vertically scrolling sea and landscapes. Shoot various types of enemy planes. Collect a variety of weapon power-ups.

    Game Play
    Shoot the red formation of enemy planes to receive a "POW" and collect this for different power-ups; double shot, wider shot, two side-planes, or a "smart bomb".
    Using the roll button causes your plane to loop out of the 2-D action thereby avoiding all enemy shots. You have three rolls per level, but you are awarded a bonus for any that are unused. Hit percentage reports are given at the end of each level.

    I'm not in contention for the prize... I really struggle with the button mashing vertical shooters.

    And here I was praying to the Arcade Gods (The Great Weibe In The Sky) to bring me '10 Yard Fight' as the final game

    Looks to be a Rat/Dkong/Ramere shoot out for The Prize. There can be only one!

    Great score m8 but hopefully won't last much longer

    Stayed at home today with a "crook" kid so had a decent crack. Got to over 600k & hope to improve on that, will post a pic later in the week. Need to lower my desk though, developing a right shoulder problem (keep it quiet, if it get's too bad I'll claim workers comp ).
