Quick Look: SpaceBandit is a fast-paced game that is all about timing and quick maneuvers. The game's premise is very simple: Take as much space as possible while avoiding a constant barrage of bullets. This is done by moving your "ship" using the directional arrows on your remote.
There are several strategies that you can attempt, each of which have their benefits and drawbacks. The first strategy is to take out small chunks of space which makes getting hit less likely, but this is very time consuming. The other strategy is to remove large portions of the board, however this will leave you vulnerable to being hit by one of the many bullets randomly fired on the playing field. A mixture of both seems to work the best as each of the 4 levels requires different tactics to clear the board.
Each level provides 3 lives and requires you to complete the tasks listed below:
- Level One - Clear 80% of the board
- Level Two - Clear 85% in 30 seconds or less
- Level Three - Clear 85% of the board with only 5 entries onto the board
- Level Four - Clear 85% of the board in 30 seconds with only 5 board entries
Each level contains mystery bonuses, including Power Up, Speed, Health, Freeze, Extra Time, and Extra Points, which you collect as you claim more of the board. If you can manage to "trap" the attacking ship or complete all of the level requirements you automatically complete the level and are awarded all of the possible bonuses.
