My Shadow kicks my butt like no other pin. True, you just have to start modes and not finish to make it to the Final Battle. I have done that a few times. It's still a really tough game. Every shot has a high risk of drain and nothing is easy to finish. Just starting a mode is a really tough shot. That's why I prefer games like AFMr. Much more forgiving and easy to accomplish the basics while still hard to finish. There will always be great new games like Alien but nothing can take away what makes great classics great. That's why I am more attracted to AFMr right now. I know it is a great game. Alien is still an unknown until I can at least play it a few times.

Quoted from Pimp77:

The Khan hole starts modes too...just saying.

About the only way I can start a mode is if it bounces in the Khan hole randomly. Funny thing is that I seem to hit the Khan shot frequently when in a mode. 2M points hooray! The most frustrating thing is that when I finally do land a good shot to start a mode the ball often pops out of the saucer and dribbles back down. Same thing happens on the battlefield. Super hard to get a shot to stick. Game just punishes you so bad.
