I don't recall exactly how well it ran, but I remember being blown away by Relic - Nerve Axis (http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=194) when I finally got a Viper Mk V 030/50.

GG! :great

Great game. I played quite a bit of Zarathrustra as a kid but didn't know the devs also made this little gem. Be sure to check out the Lemon Amiga interview with Ziriax.

304,640

Snuck in a second go this evening and got to level 3. It's a lot easier to focus on dodging without having to mash the fire button!

I retired early as I think I'd need autofire to get further without busting up my hands. Happy with my score, though, hopefully others can shore up the EAB side a bit. :)

216,020

The game gives you a 15K (?) bonus for surviving the first level 2 boss, so my improvement isn't that much. I lost my good weapons beforehand but managed to wing it.

194,910

Made it to the first level 2 boss on extra lives. I ended up picking up a second side shot power-up for three shots in total, which worked well up to that point.
