This is a 6.78s improvement over my previous canceled submission. I redid the boss battle using a strategy showed here: http://tasvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13450#331379

Game Info:

Phoenix is a top-down outer space-themed fixed shooter similar to Taito's Space Invaders. As commander of the desert crawler Phoenix, your bizarre mission is to fight through flocks of fierce, mutating birds, then destroy the parasitic Mother Ship that's sapping Earth's resources!

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.2.0

Goals:

  • Aims for fastest time
  • Genre: Shoot 'em up

This game is way better than Space Invaders, IMO.
