Atari Video Computer System / 2600


· The score rolls at 1 million, but the difficulty doesn’t.  The bonus maxxes out at 9,000.

· BUG: If you earn more than 16 reserve cars, the reserve counter will reset to 0.  You’ll then only see 1 reserve icon, which is for the car you’re using (meaning you have none in reserve).  If you continue to earn reserve cars, the game will usually crash.  {Scott Stilphen}

· BUG: If you stay in one of the corners, facing against the border (preferably either the left or right side) and hold the FIRE button down, almost every enemy Targ ships will explode on contact with you (picture #1).  This trick also works in the arcade version!  {Scott Stilphen}

· BUG: When a Targ ship crosses the horizontal ‘line’ of where the HMOVE line is, the graphics for them get corrupted (pictures #1 and #2).

· BUG: On level 7 and higher, if you keep your car in columns 2, 3, 5, 6, or 8, and not on the same row as a Targ, none of the Targs will "see" you. They will continue to move back-and-forth until you choose one of the other columns (1, 4, 7, 9, or 10).  {Scott Stilphen}

· BUG: When Targs change direction and move from right-to-left, their position moves up 1 pixel.  Any Targ in the top row actually overlaps the top border (picture #2).  Also, when moving from left-to-right, they will jump up 1 pixel when they reach the 8th column (picture #3). 

· BUG: On higher levels, your shots will sometimes go right through a Targ (picture #4).
