So the condition for that screen looks like it's beat the hi-score but don't beat the game.  Weird....

I also wonder if there's a typo. It says you "saved your country with honor and courage". Wouldn't "served your country" make more sense? I mean, how do you save your country by getting a high score and not finishing the mission?

Died midway through level 3 , i assume it's because score is over 50.  @Bearcat-Dougany chance you remember your score when you beat it?

I just finished the game again, but I somehow missed the landing on Mission 3 even though it looked like everything was right. My score would have been in the same ballpark had I made all of the landings.

I hope you put it down as a yearly completion.  Too lazy to check if you did.  

I will assume u have and no longer care to try.  Also just lost power soooooo..

I made sure to post it in the beat every NES game thread. I actually don't think this is a bad game and I didn't have a great attempt since I missed landing the plane on Mission 3, but I probably am done with it for the week even though a 100k+ score would look better than what I've got.

The high score screen is definitely cooler than the plain mission accomplished screen that you get for beating the game.

Damnnnnn, you werent kidding. The mission accomplished sign is brutally boring. Such a weird choice by the programmers

@8bitdontquit I got 103k this morning, but I missed the landing after blowing up the space shuttle. I was so mad, I couldn't even get a picture in time. I may have to try again after all. In my 11 years of playing in the contests, I've never finished higher than 2nd in a shooter or puzzle contest. God knows that I'm never going to win a puzzle contest, but this might be my best chance at a shooter win.

Would love to see @Dr. Morbisjust left field this one

Well I don' know if the ol' Grin-meister is playing possum or not, so I've got to try my best.  I haven't had much time to play yet, but I did get to the Mission 3 boss on my second attempt last night.  Hopefully on the weekend...

33,000 on stage 2.

Depending on whether I want to play more of it this weekend, this might be it.

I've owned Top Gun ever since I was a kid, but I didn't like it much and I wasn't good at it. I'm still not. However, I popped it in and landed on the aircraft carrier last year, which is the first time anyone in my family had done so. My older brother was super excited.

I like it more now than I did as a kid, that's for sure.

Doubtful I'll have time to even see the 4th (top secret) mission as the weekend are to hectic to try to actually compete..  That being said

I will try to top(gun) @Bearcat-Doug🐻

I finally finished the game with all four landing bonuses so I'm definitely done now.

I’m just not very good at this game. Those fucking missiles man! Wth some of them I can shoot. I try to fly away from others but they just stay on the screen and hit me. By the time I get to the boats/subs that take two missiles to destroy I only have one life left and never make it through. I’ve probably put a good 4-5 hours in on this stage in the last month and a half and I’m just stuck. F it. Wasn’t meant to be. I have worn the crown twice. Tied once and give you all you can handle without trying 😁.

Not looking good for me brother lol. I got one play in on Monday and my weekend is pretty much booked. I don’t even have a score yet.

I thought you might push me with a late weekend score. I'm probably going to watch football all weekend, but I don't think I would be able to top my current score anyway.

I imagine that you and @8bitdontquit will give me a run for my money. I got a really good attempt in, but I still left some points out there.
