Hack lifes.
Inquired for byte is over set. Changes according to storage and version. Therefore is best search sequence in hexadecimal editor(frhet free). Is that a byte entry $04. Find by the help of sequence <bh:01><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:00><bh:04><bh:01> :Copy, find out and last but one byte($04) them to transcribing of the number of lifes. From 0 to the ff to taste. 0 as far as 256 lifes.

As a shoot 'em up, it's sort of like a Blue Max-lite, and a fun one at that. But the only area it falls short is that, as with other Activision conversions from their 2600 counterpart, the enhancements were marginal at best.

Really good game.

Classic videogame, but still a lazy 2600 port. Synapse's Blue Max, frankly, blew this game out of the water on the Atari 800. I really wish Activision would have created new sequels to their classic 2600 titles, taking full advantage of the powerful home computers. Instead, they just dump the old games with a few new colors.

I remember playing this at one of the earlier computer expos held during the early 80's here in Melbourne, Australia. I loved it! I played it for half an hour or so. I think it was my first taste of vertical shooters on a home computer.

actualy it went x-rated in germany due to its violent content ..and been rerated for a retro compilation i think couple of years ago, considering that it was made by a girl its a even more impresive shooting game 11/10 :p

well, that's the very first computer game I've ever played. I remember long nights spent on trying to get past 70th bridge or so. Oh, memories. 10, of course.
