Shouldn't have any problems reaching 3 mil from here. Maybe I can peep into the final stage...

Fell to shit at the end of stage 4 (a dumb death after the sniper subs, and another at the boss), but stage 5 went great until I got hit... Great run though, all in all.

About 6 credits in...
Might not play anymore. I get frustrated with this game. And that's not a good sign.
Feel like i'm dying because of badly designed bullshit. Oh, and fuckin' MAME-lag.

Seems the highest the rank ever goes is when you get to stage 4 without dying. Once you die the rank drops slightly.

Use those bombs everyone, the games doesn't give you a shitload of them for nothin!

Took Macaw's advice and just bombspammed the fuck out of everything:

Player 2 is way easier.

Argh those blue flickering bullets are so hard to see, and it doesnt help that computer keeps throwing me out of mame to desktop every 15mins for no apparent reason.

If not for those stage letter intros, I'd almost forget that I haven't made it to stage 3 yet.

I really like this one, but I've only been able to put two hours in all week and have to leave for thanksgiving.

Man I love 2P ship now. First 3 stages went ideally, followed up by chain-dying in St.4 :(

Probably the last for me. There's a good replay on youtube I've been referencing for secrets etc, uploaded by replayburners.

Rubbished stage 6 again, but managed to keep going a little longer. Starting to feel like I could actually clear this if I continue playing beyond this week...

Another day, another MAME build. Well, I managed a flawless play (aside from using 3 bombs at the second boss just to make sure I didn't lose any lives) up to shortly before the third boss, then promptly lost them all quickly. Quite happy with my performance in stage 1, and I'm not having any trouble with the stage start letter attacking. (I guess the only stage with a 50K medal instead of a bomb is the first one.) I going long enough to build up the long medal bar chain and get some points out of it in stage 3.

I reloaded the savestate just for practice and got not terribly further - I didn't play the third boss well, but that's no surprise since I was mainly focused on keeping the momentum going from the stage. That plane that comes up behind you at the start of the fourth stage is...eh, I don't like things like that. I guess I'll have to try staying far away from it while it approaches, because there's not much chance of getting the timing down right for hit and run at close range.

Been distracted by Thanksgiving and my Wii U, haven't been giving this any attention. I'll see how much I can improve before the deadline.
