Me when I had time and energy to play life force:

Im jealous. I had some time. I had some energy. I brought my nes and power pak on my flight today in my carry on work bag. Hooked her up ready to qbert, but no dice. My brother in law does not have the tv remote, so we couldnt change the input. Brutal.

I disagree. Now that I know what to do in level three, it seems very easy, and I never die there anymore. I hate the section in the last level with the really fast small balls that fly around all over the place and the flames. There doesn't seem to be a strat other than avoid getting hit.

Man, you're crazy.  I think I had maybe two failed runs end on a level that wasn't level three.  Once you're powered up, the whole game is an absolute cakewalk except for level 3 and the ten second escape run at the very end... 😛

Right on brother. I have no death run it before when we played in 2017 I haven’t got passed the fire stage yet this week though lol

I made it through two and a half loops in the 2013 tournament, but that was probably the last time I played it.

Terrible. I played some last night and couldn't even get out of level 4 because of constant stupid deaths.

I hate the stage with the pillars that move up and down and you have to make it through. I’m always like “I’m definitely gonna hit a fucking wall here”. That’s what killed my score in 2017, I still made three loops but I had to run stage six with the pea shooter and burned like 15 lives. It wasn’t a one life contest that year.

Thanks now I'm going to be nervous when I get back there and die lol.

What happened to your force-field?  And what happened to your back-up force-field?

Unfortunately force seems to do nothing against those bullets unless I somehow lost it beforehand and didn't notice.

EDIT: Or maybe I was hit by more than one bullet?

I don’t think force saves you from turrets.
