I think I mentioned it before, but when the green sponges appear and become stuck in the field of pearls you can move them out of the way. You'll have to do it quickly, but when you have an opening fly to the right out of the pearl field, and quickly reverse the direction of your ship. Fire at the sponges, while at the same time, push left on your joystick. That will push them out. Just don't let something incoming hit you from behind.

That loud grunt noise you made a couple of times. I've done that too. wink

If your playing experience is like mine, than I'm sure that you've noticed that the game is easier control wise playing it with a real 2600 Joystick.

and yeah, i tend to bust out that grunt every time i play Oystron.frown  it surprises the hell out of me when i die!

thanks for the tip (again)

actually though, it's kinda nice when the sponges show up because it makes the game easier for a short time.   but maybe I'm losing points, i don't know.

While the sponges are stuck your pearls are moving rapidly vertically, and getting stolen in the process.
