Jim's Retro Retreat 2020-06-24 0 point Commodore 64 version
Bloody loved this game! Encountered a bug back then though, if your extra lives went too high, the + symbol would appear. If you shot down the mothership with + lives, the bonus multiplier would keep adding up forever... would have to turn the bloody thing off! Managed to get up to sector 82, was hoping for an ending at sector 100, but reckon it just goes on forever!

Absolute best game for the C64. So many hours spent jamming the less then responsive controller and crying every time my last ship exploded. I feel old now.
