It is a nicely-done game from a genius programmer. No nag screen, and the guy is long gone from the scene. So it's just a game to play.
Post your high scores. My highest is 394,840. I have no idea if that's good or bad, although it will take anyone who has never played the game about 2-3 hours minimum playing to get anywhere near it, probably more like 10-20 hours?
From the L.U.P. thread: I need playing tips. Post a screenshot of your score, first guy to beat me wins a (brushed motor) ESC and motor. But you have to post tips on how you did it.
-Shoot fast moving asteroids as a priority.
-Don't be too quick to shoot all the asteroids in a level, and don't leave just one. Packages don't come if there's only one asteroid. I think. Correction - they can appear with only one asteroid. I just had it happen. Packages or gifts come floating in from the top, you can get a Fast Shooter, Brakes, Time Bomb, Extra Life, Shields replenish, Renew, just nothing, and the holy grail, the Triple Shooter. Triple Shooter combined with Fast Shooter and a Renew means death to asteroids, it's the way to get a high score. Frustrating that it's a chance game to get these lined up. One more thing - after shooting the last asteroid, get in the habit of flying upward, occasionally you'll snag a late arriving package before the end of the level.
-It doesn't pay to hunt aliens, just play.
-Switch L and M keys, so you shoot with L and fly with M. It works better for me at least.
-Learn to fly, it doesn't pay to just hang in the center. Then you have to learn to get back to center and stay there...
