Thanks
Since I could get up to stage 6 on most runs (and lose a life there) I tried my best to learn a safe way through the stage, while maximising points still.

Level 4 is pretty tricky at first. Be aware though that the enemies come in the same place everytime, so it's just a matter of learning where everything comes from and thinking of a creative way of handling them without dying, no excuse! ;)

Hah Par-Type. I'll have to remember that ;)

Stage 4 isn't that hard really. The only real threat are the dot-trailing enemies that come from all directions, you just need to learn where they come from and where you should be positioned to take them out. Some of them you need to kill quick and others you can just let trail off, experiment different ideas. Also try and be consistent with your strategies and positioning, try not to improvise a different route everytime relying on luck, try and form a gameplan and be consistent. A trick I use to remember exactly when a particularly hard enemy is coming up is to use the scrolling and scenery as a marker/landmark. For example: when the graphic on the floor of a pipe scrolls up with the end of the charge beam bar, the fat dot-eater comes from the top. That's personally how I learnt the game. It's 100% the same every game so it's perfectly doable. ;)

I'm quite glad I can't get past 4th stage to be honest.  Such a great game I don't want to finish it.

Update.

I can now get to the 3rd stage on 1 life but the big ship thing keeps getting me.

Any advice?

Don't get shot! Seriously though, I've started practising in mame this week. I opt for the reflect laser for the start to get the gun turret hiding in the corner at the front underneath. Then switch to the full power fremont laser circle thing. Get to the back of the ship, once you're there that's as far as its going. I killed it by just flying the ship introduce into the eye when it moved back.

Ive been practising this week and have done up to level 4 just today. Needles to say as I've. Of practised it I lasted all of 30 seconds!

Use the yellow weapon on the 3rd stage as it hugs the body of the ship and knocks out the gun turrets,then mid way under the ship change to the red weapon. once through to the back end place your force shield on your rear to take out the turrets .by keeping it on the rear to protect you from the blue balls fired from the ship.you can then use your power beam to shoot the eye killing it in one shot.
