We played this in the Retro League, and I got 99,510 which was 3rd from last! The best was 714,800!!

I couldn't believe how hard it was, and how badly I was doing at it.

Please tell me how to change it to fast, it was a bit painful.

When you are in the game, press Tab to get the menu up, then choose Dip Switches, then change Player Speed to Fast.

I still thought it was far too slow even like that.

That (horrible!) game is basically one tough memory test, but having said that I got about 183K the last time I played it in a comp (on fast).

Pretty good game!! those tanks & little boats are pretty sneaky with how fast they can aim to shoot at you.. my first 2 runs were pretty sad.. like didnt even get through the 1st 20 seconds haha. Awesome retro feel to the game with the short shot range and nice chunky sprite visauls =)
From Game&Watch to PS2 and Arcade in between, its been so much fun every single step of the way.

I can't access their site at work, but could someone post up what the Twin galaxies Dip Switch settings are?
