Exerion

0.30 [Brad Oliver]


NOTE:

- exerion, exeriont, exerionb: Obscure bonus bug. Many thanks to George Anastasiadis. This information was taken from here. There is a notorious bug. In the challenge stage, if you shoot all 40 aliens you normally get a bonus charge of 60. Sometimes a red hydra comes out during this stage. If you shoot it and all 40 aliens, you get a total of 41. The game seems to fail the test of 'hits=40' and only gives you a bonus charge of 41. This information was taken from here. gregf


Bugs:

- After the bonus stage, when you die, the game ends regardless of # of ships in reserve. exerion0112u4yel Krusty104 / tafoid
