    Not much to tell really, it not a game that requires much finesse.

    Dont worry about shooting planes, just dodge 'em & once you have cleared the ground & ship guns keeping low is handy.

    Just go flat chat until you get to your POW's, pick 'em up, turned around & get the hell out of there as fast as you can.

    When picking up the POW's bounce the chopper ever slow slightly (taking care to not squash any POW's, I usually do one bounce between each POW boarding), this stops the tanks, etc. from appearing at the bottom of the screen trying to blow the crap out of you.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    Yep, was just about to edit my initial post with that info.

    In level 4 the are plenty ship at the bottom of the screen so turn sideway to blow 'em away.

    1st game in ages for this score, it's actually a PB iirc, had only ever played it with the Hard dipswitch. Stuffed up by killing POW's on the 1st 2 levels & level 5 costing 150K, reckon I will get as high as 800K if I put some time into it

    Once past level 4 you go back to the 1st level although it's a bit harder.

    A couple of games tonight, first time I have cleared stage 1 Second stage is a bit trickier with the gun turrets on the other side of the ships.

    BTW Ramere I have your MGL X trophy, do you want to pick it up some time.

    For anyone that wants a tip to increase your score......
    ....change the setting from hard (default) to easy.

    My score went from 11,000 to 51,000 on the very next game!

    Was waiting to crack the 100k mark tonight and finally did it with the aid of rescuing all in the first level. Now to stop before I break something...

    Shirtlifter, hmmm not really a fav but will give it a go

    I think I remember playing a bad clone that I loaded from TAPE to my VIC-20


    Ramere I predict you have me on this one.

    Edit

    OK just played a game, yep bought back memories, worth having a bash at. It is innovative for it's time in the movement and differing "planes". Also an accurate and fair game, don't worry about squashing them as they are only Americans.

    I enjoy hearing them scream..

    Thanks for the playing tips Retrogamer/Ramere, that's helped a lot. I 've been just picking up the men, not flying them anywhere Just sort of picking them up and joyriding until being shot out of the sky. Great battle tactician.

    Edit: Token effort. Never came across a tournment game I disliked as much, or have had so much trouble with, as this one Oh well I found my gaming silver bullet

    121,100, start of 3rd level. Will improve on this with a bit more practise.
    243,100, damn that 3rd level is a prick, one freak fireball can screw up the whole level.
