Great game, and a pretty good conversion from the arcade version.

I hope this is within the rules ... I found the keys awkward to use so I patched the game to use S, F, E, D and J, L, I, K.

Best so far: 103275

If I had picked up that guy with the briefcase things might have been different. Still, a little better.

Guessing it's okay, the rules were prohibiting auto fire for now but that doesn't seem like the same thing.
Yes it feels much less awkward - with the other keys I'd been trying to use my thumbs as well. I think it should be allowed, it's more fun playing that way. It does seem quite a bit easier though, it would be good to get it agreed as okay, and have everyone use it.

Link to remap those keys in jsbeeb
http://bbcmicro.co.uk//jsbeeb/play.php? ... K=M&noseek

In case anyone needs to be able to type D or K for their high scores, perhaps I should fully swap the keys:
http://bbcmicro.co.uk//jsbeeb/play.php? ... M=K&noseek
(swaps D with C, and K with M)

My score with remapped keys: 44725

Best I can do. There's just too many keys for me to be able to use them instinctively and I can't steer with my left hand and shoot with my right.

High Score Tables Updated for Season 16, Round Auxilliary......

Talk about your fast moving game.

Well, the winner this time is Lovebug who came up with the decisive score about 1/2 way through the round. So I'd like to congratulate Lovebug on a great, hard fought win during this round. =D> =D>

On a side note I'd like to thank all those who played this round. We had 13 playing this game again which is above average so.....Thank you!!! It seems we are mostly averaging out at 11 so this is above average.

Just as another side note, please check to ensure I've not missed anyone's scores as I've been busy and it's easy to miss things on this and I really don't want to do that for anyone's hard earned score.
Ed...... :-)
