    One thing I'm finding refreshing about this shooter after the last couple is not losing accumulated power ups

    If you don't miss any enemies their score increases to 300ea, back down to 10 when you miss one. This is handy to get a few more points on the first two screens, but then it gets too hectic to worry about.

    Most of you will have noticed that you can hold the button down for a power shot, these are good for bosses.

    The plain looking spaceship not carrying a power up drops down when hit with the first shot, shoot it again and he explodes killing enemies around it.

    The levels are varied and innovative, do a few continues and have a look at later levels.

    Cheers for that I was wondering why I was scoring 300's on the first couple of screens

    Nice score BTW what stage may I ask?

    Dunno what stage that was??? will have a look next game.

    Just looked up my old scores on MARP from back in 2003 (wow 8 years ago) and it seems my PB is 419k round 22

    I doubt I will beat that this week.
    Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

    Stage 12.

    Pretty typical Taito F3 game. Colourful, cute and fun.

    Nice score Rat, looks like we are on target for 11 games, 11 different winners

    I'm liking this game, rapid-fire spacies-with-a-twist is alright!

    Game wasn't on my xxxx-1, loaded it in and performed much better on the cab. Should be able to improve a fair bit on this hopefully.

    Just got 395k, had potential to smash my PB, had 153k after the first boss, got perfect on the first 3 challenge stages, but game over before the screens I usually get up to.

    Not many posting scores?

    That's it for me this week, off to work, I hope people enjoyed being attacked by lunar loonies
