    Yeah, real amateur score that one

    This game was the first arcade game I remember looking at the graphics and saying "holy shit" The quality of the backdrops blew me away

    I'm done with this for tonight. I'll give it a bash in the morning when my brain is fresh I'm sure my best score is around 600-800K

    Been at least 20 years since I played this on a real machine, I'm sure it's easier on a cab than it is on a keyboard like most games.

    My big scores are done on the keys man This 800K score was a joystick effort.

    That's interesting. There is a stage where I seem to remember being able to get all three bombs going right at the start (level 4?) by hitting the button and hovering, but I can't do it on the keyboard

    Those DIPs settings aren't matching mine, I don't have a 10,000 "Initial High Score", I have "Bonus Life" instead, what's the setting for that?

    Getting to a million is relatively easy if you work out the bomb sequence. The next million is the hard yards

    Set bonus life to none. Extra men are achieved with the special coin settings.

    Thanks Gordon Gekko. I haven't played this since the arcades, easily 25 years ago, and even then I barely touched it. Always knew I was going to have to learn this game one day...

    Is this an 8 way ? I didn't realise there was a second button on terra cresta till after 6 tonight. Took a break to grab a cuppa - came back to see the game in attract mode showing me sights that genuinely had me going wtf?!! *facepalm
