I don't know if this is part of the game itself or just a glitch, but I was playing this game waaaay better than usual. i actually beat a boss for once and made it very far into the game. About 25 minutes into the game, my three extra lives went to zero. Obviously, I was too busy dodging aliens to notice, so when I died, I got a game over instead of getting another life. I'm disappointed that I made it so far only to lose all my lives unexpectedly. 

I apologize for the crap video but it shows up great on my Nokia Windows 8 phone and I can see it plain as day. Right around the time I hit 475,000 points, my lives went from 3 to 0.

According to the manual:

When the "Earth Shield" bar reaches zero status (totally black), all your reserve ships are automatically destroyed, and you will go to the last life consequently. So, it's the mechanics of this game.

Well crap. At least now I know what the earth shield is for now. i'm just glad it wasn't a glitch or something. 

I haven't read the manual for this game, but I do have a copy of it around hee somewhere...
