@Shadowlink I remember it being tough in the N64 game. Though the warp gates make your ship spin, you still turn faster if you hold the L/R triggers. Those and the brakes still work I'm pretty sure, so that helps if you're struggling to get from one side of the screen to the other.
1495. A...moderate improvement on my top score. Nothing record breaking as Starfox 64 high scores go (apparently the really good players get over 2000+), but impressive for me I think. That should tide me over until Starfox Zero hits.
