This would be a terrific game if it had better hit detection! Still pretty fun, though.

nice job I thought I would roll it but oh well. On my last game I almost did, I think I may have found a way to do it without relying much on luck. I just kept guarding closely the top & bottom (for the last wall), and allowing the sides to get attacked if there is any top or bottom alien. I was most of the time able to get my shot at the big aliens pretty early, in time to get a 2nd shot when it misses. It was totally working for me until I got stuck on the corner! unfortunately that was my last game of WD. I began to wonder if maybe they put random misses into the code in order to add a final touch of difficulty to overcome for skilled players, because that is really the only thing holding most of us back, once we got used to the game. without that bad hit detection it would be a pretty easy game really. ?? maybe? it would have been a weird thing to do but just a thought.

Yeah, I've wondered the same thing about Planet Patrol. It seems that the programmer wanted you to hit enemy vessels exactly in the center in order for the hit to be detected.
