The 1st 4 stages at least...


Now that we have the "where" how about the "how"? What makes them appear?

Being in the highlighted position - when they appear you have about 1 second to start shooting it.

Gotcha. Totally missed those red boxes in the pictures...

But hey, at least I stopped trying to dodge the big green things they spit out. :lol:

Well, then.... :?

Nice score list man! Almost all of your scores are higher than my best one. I managed to squeak into the 260s last night but I am hitting a brick wall in Stage 3. At this point, I need to make it through Stage 1 and 2 without losing a life to have ANY hope of getting to the Stage 3 boss.

Put in a couple runs after work - SOOOO close to getting to stage 5. I'm consistently no missing stages 1-3 now. Stage 4 is really short and very manageable if you use your power shot at 3 opportune times. The boss' second form is giving me fits right now - super frustrated, the openings are there and they look so big - so I never bomb, but I always die. So frustrating. Have a new high, but gonna wait as i'm feeling super close to a big breakthrough.

EDIT: scoreboard updated

3 straight runs to the stage 4 boss / 2nd Form. It's just brutal - i'm losing 2-3 lives there each run. Ugh...ugh.
