yeah, we probably all made it to about the same place.  I think I only got an edge by getting lots of bonuses earlier on...

Yeah those Chance Stages are key, it's like Galaga.. Or really any game with a bonus stage I guess

yeah very much like galaga!  I heard Gyruss was concieved as a 3D Space Invaders, but I gotta think, Galaga must have been out or else this was really innovative!  if so it must have spawned Galaga!  that just don't seem right though.
