    Got the score 93100. This game is hard. Using the Konami Code while paused yields a full power-up, and I'm using it to get a chance of getting past the two volcanos. I reached stage 2 and was killed by a swarm of Zubs.

    That demo "AI" is disappointingly stupid.

    The two cheats:
    • Pause game, then Konami Code (UUDDLRLRBA Start) to get full option level.
    • On Game Over screen, press DUBABABA Start to continue. Can only be done once.

    Erik's Nintendo Classic Edition had Gradius on it, and I had to try how far I could get. It actually went OK, I reached the Moai heads before I was shot down and got stuck with the awful starting weapons.

    The second time I played Gradius on Erik's NES Classic. Too difficult.
