Just got the Dreadnaught Factor today.

Trying to destroy five Dreadnaughts is a pain. The fourth and fifth ships weapons fire like crazy and shoot homing missiles and things that look like the USS Enterprise from Star Trek. Anyone beat level 4 and or above?

 

Yeah, it takes a little planning.

 

The first few passes, don't worry about destroying their guns or vents... Make a beeline to the bridges and engines, and then you have plenty of time to take out their guns, and then drop bombs on the vents and silos

 

 

From the manual:

 

Reducing a dreadnaught's firepower. BRIDGES coordinate the overall rate of fire

of the dreadnaught. Destroy all the bridges with your laser bolts to reduce the

firing rate 50%. SILOS house the planet-destroying mega-missiles. To save Terra

from these missiles, drop strontium bombs on all the silos.

 

 

Slowing down a dreadnaught. The four actinium engines, located at the rear of

each dreadnaught, power the behemoth battlecraft through space. Drop strontium

bombs on each engine to slow the dreadnaught's approach velocity (See "Game

Chart".) The thunderous roar of the engines lowers in pitch as each engine is

destroyed.

Those homing missiles coming from the large blue lauchers should be there from the beginning. The yellow towers start firing swarm trackers on the second dreadnaught. The large cannons start firing on the third dreadnaught. And for a nice surprise on the fifth dreadnaught the small cannons rotate and fire at you at angles.

 

You don't have to wait to see all the different weapons. There is a rom file called Deadnaught Prototype that has most if not all weapons on from the beginning. Only level six is a playable game however.

 

I wish I had this game in 1983. It would have been interesting to see how far I could get as a kid. I'm not the player I use to be. Level three (only two dreadnaughts) should be doable by most. Level four would have gotten you an Activision patch.

Yeah, it was a favorite of mine as a kid, but I don't have the memory to recall how far I was getting.
