Learned, that driving with the mouse (ok used a PC trackball) is nice. Shooting on on targets increase the score multiplicator, good to know. Also understand whats Warp is. I don't use it, makes more sense to play linear.

Before STOT I never played this game that much. When I suggested playing this, I wasn't aware that it was so repetitive :(

Well, that's why we play, i think. To really play some old games and decide later if it was worth ;)

It's true, RB is a long road :-) but after 15 levels there is a new set of graphics. And nice ones. A average game that makes fun, but yes there should be 5 levels less in the first graphicsset.

Round is over. Thanks to all participants. Next enjoy Stormtropper or play Pang in the STOT Classics.

The game was intersting while it become better the more you play it. The problem of course was that the game could took ages.

Congrats for your high score ThorN and I'm agree with your last sentence Simonsunnyboy ;)
It's the charm of STOT, to discover games and to see they are worth.
