278,530,000. Only lost 2 bases.     


Great score!


My personal best for skill 4 is 280,210,000 on July 10, 2011. All bases & cities saved. To this day it's the only game where I didn't lose at least 1 city on skill 4.


I've had 8 games, including yesterdays, where I lost only 1 city.

This score is about the best I can do on Skill 4 after many attempts.  Any tips on how to improve?



Check the entire U.S. Map (8 on the keypad) constantly to see what areas the missiles and planes are closing in on. Clear an area then check the map. At the start, the northern areas (Usually Defense Sector B) get hit first. Learning how to get your jets on the right line to take out other jets fast without out having to redirect is a must. Lots of multi tasking. The Coleco controller works great for this game. Keep an eye out for the Satellite. You can clear an entire area quickly with the Satellite. It follows the same flight path pretty much.

@Northcoastgamer Thanks for the tips.  I likely don't get my jets efficiently lined up and often have to redirect so that certainly loses me time focussing on one area when my attention is needed elsewhere.

The Jets move slowly so take out the missiles first in an area. If another area has missiles to eliminate, get them first, then go back to areas with the jets.

Thank you ?  Your tips helped me to get my personal best to date.
