Wow, I've never played this before, and first impressions - what a gem! Fabulously good fun, the only real gripe is the erratic speed the game runs at (slowing down and then suddenly speeding up is a bit disconcerting). Excellently, runs perfectly from disk on my 68040 A1200. Might try installing it to HD - probably no WHD install because it doesn't need one.

Nostalgia trip!I have not seen this running in a very long time.. always loved that warp between levels

It runs well from HD, only the framerate is too fast even on stock 020 - a whd version would be cool!

I'm still not really sure what's going on in this game. Is there an objective on each round, or do you just keep blasting until it moves you on to the next one?

My first session was horrible. Max. 1800 points. That will be tough.

I think this game with it's wireframe gfx is a good example of where good quality 50hz monitor output is important.. otherwise it would be tough to see all the enemy shots.

Only tips I can think of is shoot everything, keep moving and don't miss any powerups
Also, I use mouse control on default settings.. mouse is better I think, as you can move around quicker.
Oh and don't forget to use your deathblades (RMB or SPACE).

Absolutely flew through stage 8 with a bunch of triple lazers and I think you'd be completely screwed without them. Thought I might have completed the game since lemon only mentions 8 stages, but no it continues on
Password was '68030' (not that it matters).

Janci: Hard luck mate, maybe it is your controls letting you down. You get a big score for killing bosses which are every 5 levels, so maybe aim for a few of those to boost your points a bit.

Also make sure to play this no faster than stock a500 speed otherwise it is too hard.

Oh that matters... well, I haven't tried on any other than a real A1200/030@50MHz Probably can't bother anymore either...

Well at least with 020+ you get more responsive controls
Robo-sparkle is probably playing on 060 with full cache enabled
