Nowhere near!

These twin galaxy settings are way harder than I usually play - I'm down to 300K now!

You still get the bonus life via the "E" - just not automatically when you reach certain scores...

Going for the "E" is usually when I lose a life! LOL

Just enjoying playing them is all that matters. Getting high scores isn't really important. I do get an extra buzz if I manage to beat a PB on a game, though. Mind you, my PB scores aren't anywhere near the amazing scores I see posted here. I'm OK at most games, pretty good at a few, but I'm not really good at playing any, really. Tongue

Right then Jim, settings changed and I'll give it a go.

I honestly feel that the TGTS are easier than the normal ones. But then again, that's the ones I usually played on. Can hit 2-3 million using keys on a good game.

You should be looking at around 500k by round 5, most boards can be done in order up to 15 maybe. Beyond that it's just clean the board, grab the bonus and pills. OccaSion ally you will get a board that you can take them in order. Once you get to 45 or so the game kinda loops, and the boards repeat themselves but not in any particular order.

In fact at the final RGP event, I was struggling a little due to it being set on easier settings.

Been playing this a bit since the Arcade Club meet.
Something is pretty odd with AdvanceMame's dip settings I think. We're finding that we get UFO's appearing on Level 1 for instance. I'll need to check what the bootleg does.
I'm hovering just over the 300K mark and getting to round 7 so far - I think I did better at Arcade Club. I haven't got perfect / specials nailed, but I get them occasionally.

I bounced a 3 million or so at Arcade club last month - no pics though. Walked away bitd with about 20 Million and 20 men left because I had to pick up my GF from work.

You probably have the dip settings set to hard rather than easy. It's a weird one - the game is actually "easier" at high levels on Hardest than it is on easy as the mobs cone out quicker.

Hints and tricks. You get a "bonus" every 5k scored and a power pill after eating 10 lit bombs in order (or 20 unlit). Always try to end a round close to 5k so you get a bonus early on. You get an "extra" every 9th bonus pill. Always try to get the last 3 or more bombs in order to get the power pill out early also.

So if you can get 4 bonus pills on both screen 1 and 2 then your first one on 3 is an extra.

If you can get all the lit bombs in order (23) then you get 50k bonus at the end. This drops to 30k, 20k and finally 10k for 20.

Ill leave you with a teaser from the #1 player in the world.

I am stuck at just below 800k. I just can't seem to advance past this. Although I kinda knew the stuff from Bombjac I probably don't employ it strictly enough. Utterly love the game.

Once you get high level, 80% of boards consist of :
  • leave 3+ bombs at end to get in order
  • On next board, grab as many as you can in order (if possible)
  • In you cant get them in order, grab as many as you can, as quick as you can
  • Proc Power pill
  • Kill all mobs
  • Finish board, last 3 in order.
Try to clear one half of the board at the beginning, grab pill (clear what is left of the first half board), and munch the mobs, clearing some of the bombs again.

I can actually score 3 mill using keys in mame lol.

I never get higher than 1.2M mainly because I lack a good higher level strategy

Still love this game. It has a solid place in my game room
