Yeah, I was a little tired. I average around 500 on that game.
The trick is to fly parallel to the ground. Launch and fly moderately low and straight ahead and save your boosts to grab the aerodynamic spheres, particularly the yellow one for the highest rebound, and the rockets. Flying low also allows spotting and landing on the spring boards.

I love the soundtrack. I have my system hooked to a 5.1 theater receiver with large speakers, and though it's in mono, it still sounds great. This one and the song from the Spongebob Squarepants Trail for Snail game. That one's a tight tex-mex rocker, really great.

I wasn't sure how many players to include. The first tourney I created, I set it to 8 players and it took Months to fill up.

maybe it would help if the tournaments were displayed more prominently, such as open tourneys and running tourneys on the front page somewhere... or something.

okay, i found them, signed up for a couple, and am matched against you in navy battles. bring it. :P

Thanks for the congrats, I was very surprised I only had to play one game each round though. Got nowhere near the high score.

Now for the "Driller" tourney to start!

re: navy battles tournament,
there seems to be a bug in which i'm losing my air strike attacks. when you have multiple special attacks of bombs and air strikes, and you use all your bombs first, your air strikes then disappear.

this is unfortunate since that's the way i play in order to maximise the spread.

EDIT: btw, whoever named this tournament- did you know that there's a real game called "wavy navy". it's an excellent riff on galaxian for 8-bit machines:

Congrats Hanson2 on the National Treasure pinball tournament!

Now, that being said, I'm going to cry foul a bit, though I don't know if the problem is on my end or with the game. I only got a chance to play once in the final round - my first attempt. The other two, the game loaded but stayed at the woodgrain screen before the playfield is revealed so I never got a chance to play. This happens to me frequently with this game outside of tournament play - sometimes it loads, sometimes it doesn't - so I was a little leery of playing it in a tournament environment.

So is this game fouled up, or does it just not like Chrome (my browser) or something?

Thanks m4paws! I'd never thought that I win this tournament with my low score! I played my games without any problem, maybe it is really your browser!

Thanks again!

Congratulations all.

I had no trouble with National Treasure in Chrome other than the right lane chute drained my ball repeatedly. Really weird as I've made that shot making the switch changes with no problems before.
