    A bit off my PB but not a bad score.

    Dammit this game is fast!! I don't see me getting much higher than this. Could it be me, or is using a keyboard much, much harder? I could dig out my Hotrod or X-Arcade stick, but I wanted to see how far I could take it with using the keyboard. I'm curious what the highest score is so far, using a keyboard...

    Ok so I lied. . I didn't think I'd beat my last score by almost 10k. In fact, I was waiting for the last enemy to come around the top to my cannon, and it snuck in and destroyed me. I've never died like that before. I think it would have given me an additional 2k for destroying it and then advancing me to the next stage. Oh well. I'm not done with this one yet. Now on to some EA.

    I'm also using a keyboard. The intensity required to keep up the momentum is quite full-on. Awesome score from Flash IV!

    What a coincidence ... you've scored the same as John73 ... 97,750.

    Actually, even more coincidences in this game. Ozfodder, Pessimeister and Vikleroy are all on 141,250 points.

    This may max out my score using WASD on the keyboard. Gotta get a pad or stick in my hand at some point to do any better.

    Still a great score. "Get the pad, get the pad, or get the stick ... yeah"

    Space Zap fury.



    A very interesting game from 1980.

    Hi Ben. I wanted to test that theory with my Hotrod and after a dozen or so games, I found it's basically the same as using the keyboard. I would have never thought that because you would think having a joystick in your hand for control, would help at the higher levels when the game gets ridiculously fast. So for me, it looks like I'm back to using the keyboard again. The downside is that there's no way I will be able to hang with those achieving 170k and higher. The game is just too fast for me to maneuver the arrow keys. My goal right now is to break 145k. 150k would probably be tops for me. If I set my expectations too high, I will find myself running to Walmart to replace my keyboard for the umteenth time.

    Let me know how it works for you.

    For those getting around 120-140 k; take heart in the fact that an extra base awaits you at 150 k. I wasn't expecting it and so it was quite a pleasant surprise.
    Another skill I found quite relevant on this particular run: Anticipation. I tried not to go berko and instead treat every shot on its merit.
