This gets the \"Best reuse of level data\" award. Fun game, but how do you dodge those missiles at the end? So frustrating.

Thanks for the comment. Come in low for the end boss and swing from side to side firing continuously. Do not swing right to the edge, but reverse direction as soon as it is clear that the missile will miss. Watch the enemy life gauge and be prepared to go up on the final pass so as to clear the wall (and if quick) the force field as well. When you\'ve got the hang of this, you should be able to clear the level with about 5 fuel tanks spare and can trade those off against knocking out guns for a higher score. 1500 is definitely achievable. I think 2000 might be possible, but can\'t manage it myself.
