    You have 10 seconds to land. The landing pads are worth in order 1K, 2K, 3K, 1K, 5K. If you go for the 5K and don't land you're screwed as 1 there's no more landing pads and 2 even if there was you only have 2 seconds left.

    The bonus flags are the key here. Collect BONUS in order without collecting a letter out of sequence and the value of where you land is multiplied 10X. 5K with bonus = 50K. If you collect a letter out of sequence (for example BONN) all letters reset when you screw up. It doesn't reset if you have all 5 letters so you can grab flags for points.

    I can get the first and usually the second BONUS in order. Sometimes the second stage S screws me over.
    Thanks Rob! That makes much more sense now.

    I think it'd be better if the points popped up on screen for each ship you take down. Any idea how much taking out a plane or helicopter is worth? And the multiplier at the end could be displayed as it counts onto your score which'd make a bit more sense. I guess it might not have been commonplace for game developers to think of that kind of stuff in '82.

    Foot, I just realized I've landed only 130 pts behind your score!

    Don't complain, your score is about 58,110 ahead of mine

    Must give this game a bit more of a go next week, only had a couple of games and I have sweet FA idea what I'm doing.

    Started concentrating on trying max out the bonus in as many early rounds as I can. If I missed a critical letter I ran the annoying little sod into something to start over.

    Here is my crap effort. Only had a few games, not really my sort of thing this one - the controls just feel awful
