Juno First

 

A little better, up to 68,720

 

This game seems to be easier if i keep going backwards while i shoot instead of going forward.

I don't know if that's how everyone else is playing this or not.

 

 

Maybe you figured this out but on stage 3 (which is like a "Challenging Stage") drift backwards and then the bad guys will converge allowing you to blast the heck out of them. The next group is double file and you can just bounce left-right-left-right and kill them all. After those guys, move over one line to the right and you'll be able to blast the last wave of bad guys. Maybe you miss two - no big deal they'll move counter-clockwise where you can kill the remainder. If the clock reads "90" when that stage is done you've done well.

 

Also, those little guys that start chasing you in stage 4 you can zap with the flames coming out of the nose or tail of your ship.

 

The points also pile up when you capture the astronaut and start blowing away the bad guys. It's imperative to capture the astronaut in every level.

 

Lastly, I imagine my ship as a kick returner on a football field and I'm going North, South, East, West dodging tackles. So, yes I'm moving in all directions especially Level 4 on up when the game picks up in tempo.

 

I'm still trying to figure out the strategy to the second challenging stage.

So that's what that thing i pick up after i shoot it is, a Astronaut.

One last go at Juno First before the deadline and i only got 55,090
