Good to see some people are enjoying this one. I won’t be able to put in a score till I get back from vacation, but I plan on making some good attempts.

Nice progress @Atro 👍
I credit fed this game before and remember the monkey being a real bastard.

@roker please try to submit your score in the format I’ve requested. Makes it easier to update the score table if I can just copy and paste (especially from my phone). Thanks 🙏

I did. I forgot the character and stage though:
RKR - 170400 - ? - ? - Saturn

I'll try better next time.

Atro - 623,800 - Captain Silver - Stage 9 - Saturn

OK... This time it's official. I'm P I S S E D.

I took on the last boss, blew it to pieces and took a freaking bullet while he was already dead... on my last life!!!! :(

This game has a great learning curve. C'mon guys! You can do it. I think it's the easiest Sonic Wings/Aero Fighters I ever played.

Wow, level 9? :oops:

Is there a difficulty difference between "Special" and "Limited" besides scoring?

From what i remember, the game (Limited) got really though from stage 4 or 5 onwards.

I think i might have to drive through the desert (where Atro lives) and take my PCB to one of your cabs and see that in person :ROFLMAO:

Nice one pal (y)

I feel for the most part the game is balanced and very fair. At no point did I feel any death was cheap. So I agree, I feel with time I’ll be able to smash this game.

Going to have to disagree with @Atro, this is NOT the easiest Sonic Wings I've ever played. That award would have to go to SW3. This game is tricky—bullets are fast and bosses are sponges if you're not fully powered up. I've got a long way to go.

I believe that Limited is much harder than Special as per various comments. Do you start with 2 or 3 lives as default?

Once you can deal with the slow movement of Captain Silver, you'll get a lot of bonus points as he needs only two powerups to be at full power.

Also, his bomb and firepower are to me second to none. A bit of strategy will lead you to great results. I tried a lot of other ships, but the closest I got with this result was that russian "Dolph Lundgreen" guy. Devastating, but hard to pilot sideways...

Now if you excuse me... I have more games to finish! :D :D

Played some creds this morning. I picked HIen first, 'cause you know... Ninjas and shit. Hien sucks though, I'm sorry to say.

Captain Silver definitely packs a punch. Still experimenting though.

Yoooo Captain Silver hits so hard. I take back what I said about bosses being sponges, this guy wrecks.
