how do you reset score? I press start but the achiev dont trigger
mCyBeR76 14 Jul 2021 13:31
Reset Score or Reset Progress?
televandalist 26 Jul 2021 02:59
It's not the best wording. Resetting your score means having the score roll over. After you get the maximum score, it goes back to 0, thus resetting it.

Mastered! Short, sweet and pretty easy.

Challenging enough to be worth it, but easy enough to not be frustrating. Great set!

That was fun, brought me back to middle school haha.

I'm glad this game has a set at all, but it needs a touch up imo. There are a ton of modes in this game and game 1 is the easiest and most boring. Currently it's just really time consuming to play through the score flip on the easiest mode for 15 minutes and not varied or interesting enough.Would like to see some achievements for shooting UFOs, and score attacks for the other game modes, at least.

The pacifist achievements were very easy with the right RNG. If all asteroids stay in one vertical strip, you can just move in one direction and you never have to cross with them.

A childhood favorite! Didn't take me long to get my rhythm back and finish these achievements. Fun set. Thank you very much.

Do pacifist achievements require that you have not yet fired a shot since starting the game? I destroyed them until there was one left and waited for over 3 minutes without getting one.
S4g4tNL 23 Jul 2022 06:41
Yeah i think that;s pretty much the idea of the achievement, but have to be honest, it has been a while since i got it myself!

@Magicrafter13 it needs to be no shots from the very start, there is no counter reset if you fire. You can use turbo mode to speed it up. It's a tedious achievement if you're just sitting there waiting for seven minutes doing nothing but tap A/D.

Pretty damn easy, took me like 43 minutes.

I can no-life in this game my favourite game on atari2600

The pacifist achievements should monitor that your ship can NOT wraparound X OR Y -- ship must remain visible / whole at all times. Assuming X or Y could hit value "0" on a wraparound, should be trivial to add as a filter, no?
banthis89 10 Sep 2022 06:20
How about no.
Magicrafter13 27 Sep 2022 17:25
@theflyingape no thanks Satan, I prefer to not hate my life
