Welcome to the competition! Hopefully you'll stay with us to play whatever weird and wonderful games come up over the course of the year. Lemon has suffered a bit recently due to the site being down so it's good to see there are still representatives during a tricky period... it should all be back to normal soon.

Meanwhile here's my first ever real go. I was put off trying it earlier as I remember some years back I had trouble getting the game to work without graphical glitches on my system, it all seems okay now though happily.

I have beaten my old hiscore now, which was 4.5 mio. I died in 5-3 and had no chance to rebuild my weapon.

May have left this a bit too late to get into now. But thanks to Psygore's latest patch (Hybris24b2 in the zone) I can finally use second button and see the stage 3 bosses without glitching on real 030. Nice!

Starting to time the powerup system a bit better. What put me off for a long time was knowing the difference between a fatal hit and a 'powerdown' hit. I think I've got it now.

Saw this just now.

I use a smart bomb only for changing sides on the boss to destroy his other port (when not on active expansion 4), when you fire it you have a little time to dive below it. Or sometimes in later levels as last resort, when I see that a bullet will hit me. Another note: I fight all bosses expanded (with the exception of that blue double level 3 boss, when on expansion 3 or lower), while expanded your expansion may be hit by bullets, and it is easier to maneuver your ship between the bullets, because you have to protect only its small core.

I died in 5-3 to but managed to scrape through the last few waves and destroyed the final boss with no extension
I did regain full power but got very unlucky on 6-2 with a direct hit during stage 5 extension, after 2.5 hrs of gameplay.

By that stage enemy bullets probably took less than half a second to cover the full width of playfield..
