And now for a little fun with Space Armada
. First, we'll enable one of the Easter Eggs
, since it also enables a skip ahead to a higher starting level.
p 5044 ff ; Enable easter eggs if no controls are depressed on left controller at startup
;p 504a ff ; Easter egg 1 - "SPAZ ARMADA" (if no controls depressed on right controller)
p 504e ff ; Easter egg 2 - "SPACE BEASTIES" (if no controls depressed on right controller)
Notice that I have the middle line commented out by prefacing it with a semicolon. You obviously can only choose one of the Easter Eggs. If you want the other one, then move the semicolon from the beginning of that line to the beginning of the one below it. If neither line is commented out, you'll get the first one by default.
Now for the fun part, start at level 252
if one of the Easter Eggs is enabled and you select Practice Mode. That way you'll earn a lot of points early on.
p 50ae fd ; Start at level 252 in Practice Mode with easter egg enabled
You'll definitely want to slow down the enemies
as well, unless you want to find out just how fast they can swoop down on the higher levels!
p 5218 2b8 ; Enemies move very slow when level starts
p 5219 2 ; |
p 574e 34 ; Enemies do not speed up throughout the level
p 574f 34 ; |
You'll also probably want either 2 more lives at start
or infinite lives
, because you'll get hit a lot on these higher levels. I commented out the latter by default so there's still an actual challenge.
p 517c 6 ; Start with 2 additional lives
p 517f 11 ; |
;p 5649 34 ; Never lose lives
Here are a couple of silly ones I found along the way, which I have commented out by default.
;p 512a 6 ; Slow speed (pressing "3" at title screen) if Game Mode is selected
;p 597f 34 ; Ground turns to ice
