Just had a proper go, and it's either a very good port or a very accurate emulation. I used to be able to complete several routes back in the 80s/90s but will be needing some practice get that good again. I wish there was an option to turn scanline scaling off though. Regardless how the screen size is scaled in the options, the scanlines are always variable.

Another small request - does anyone know where I can find a map showing what all the zones look like, and what boss is at the end of each?

The Darius Wiki has a list of all the zones and their bosses. I'm afraid I don't know of a map showing the zones' themes.

Thanks. I may have to make one myself for quick reference. I had it all memorised back in the 80s but there's little chance of that happening again.

Another question, and perhaps a little embarrassing given the number of years I've been playing this game, but is there any logic as to how much the grey bonus orbs give you when you collect them?

Nope, it's random. There are rumors floating around here and there of different techniques to influence the bonus values in different Darius games, but as far as I know none of them are true.

That's a shame then, as it makes scoring in this game pointless given the huge range the random bonuses are awarded at.

I remember in G-Darius, you're supposed to get the bonus at its top most position in its circle (or downmost ?).
But maybe it is yet another rumor mentionned by Shepardus

Three end bosses down, two to go:

[A-B-D-H-M-R-X] Octopus-X

[A-C-F-J-O-U-Z] Great Thing-Z
https://youtu.be/00DGkp_95DU

Most of the final stages are actually quite big difficulty spikes and are more challenging than I remember them being. Either that, or my reaction times aren't what they used to be!

OCR and a bunch of clever filters and other things go into that image processing. NLP and machine learning for translation. Computer Vision is going to get huge fast, as if it isn't already, with self driving cars about to hit the mainstream.
