Right, had to post this up because I'm actually really pleased with this stage. I know they're only mini stages all of like 30 seconds, but I've never played shoot em ups really so it's quite a learning curve. I'm also a creature of habbit, so it's going to have to complete memorisation of when to switch and what to shoot when. I'm starting to feel a bit more comfortable which gives me a feeling of having more time to get into position before enemies start to fire, which is kinda of invaluable really. Really please with this stage. It's a good high score of 286400 which I think is higher than the in-game demo. I'll have to start adding the ingame demo scores here and get a bit of organistation! Coming from the MD I really thought d-pads were the only way to fly, but the stick control is spot on, it's extremely sensitive with almost no dead spot thank god.
