This is an absolute gem and another one of my early highly treasured C64 experiences. This was the first game in the Galaga type of gameplay that I ever got to play and it pretty much shaped my impressions of this style of game for many years until I finally got to play Galaga on cabinet. 

The slow down is an essential part of its character and the game can get pretty wild on higher levels. The whining of the alien insect fire is often hilarious. This score was a PB by around 30 k - I admittedly got lucky with one of the later challenging stages which score very highly when you get them right. Someone will no doubt push on to 200 k and possibly beyond. I've often wondered if it can be completed or like its spiritual forefather, go on until the score clocks over. I hope to get to Galencia soon as well. :)
