Shadow isn't an easy game. I still haven't beat the Final Battle, closest I've come is a handful of shots left. I top out around 1.5 billion, but a typical "good" game is probably only 900 million or so. Thing is, I can have a 30 million game right after that, and after that, it's definitely not the kind of game most people can just pwn at will.

A good part of it is how you're doing with your scene start shot, it's tight, and if you're not able to hit it pretty reliably it's tough to get too deep. But that's part of the beauty of the game, not only is it challenging, you can play it in different ways. Skip the scenes all together and try and rack up super vengeances instead!

Quoted from RonB:

That battlefield is also something I see as needing some practice to get the hang of, I can get 4 or 5 hits and then it drops off, but I've just begun to play it a few days ago.
How many hits can you guys get at best?

Battlefields definitely don't all play the same. I forget what the 4th level requires in hits now, but I've beaten that. 75? Not sure I did that in one try, probably at least a couple.

This is why I had to ship my Shadow in from out of state, I know lots of people in CA with one, but no one who was at all interested in selling. Now that I have mine it's not going anywhere either. Obviously with my translite project I have an emotional attachment to it, but beyond that it's just such a great game, and not really like anything else.

Quoted from Spraynard:

Was 2 shots from finishing final battle too--that would have been huge.

Um yeah, that would have tacked another billion on that score.

Quoted from WJxxxx:

Shooting for Vengence is too risky due to the standups guarding the left ramp being so close to the flippers that a missed shot is almost certain death.

That's true, but I still love shooting Super Vengeances, I can't help but light those rings, even when I shouldn't. That minor chord piano kicks in and the scene I was gunning for is forgotten, gotta hit the ramps!
