What triggers the "Rapid Fire" mode?  I can't tell.

Shoot 3 small birds in a row without missing or hitting anything else 😀

Good to know!

Thanks!

One of my favorite games has always been the classic PHOENIX.

I really like your proposal.

WOW! Great remake! I still have my 2600 cart!

Nice little arcade shooter! Any plans to develop it further e.g. adding a combo system, auto-fire, more weapons or leaderboards?

No plans. Just wanted a simple project to work on after Tutankham.

How many levels are there in total? I've managed to reach lvl14 for now. I do kind of miss an auto-fire and a quick restart but I can manage without :)

pretty much endless but loops around level 10 but adds pods. Next loop adds homing bombs. Plus a couple of “formation” levels thrown in for good measure. 

The homing bombs are challenging! I recorded some gameplay.

Wow!  I played this back on my brother's Intellivision console. Really great job!

Thanks Tom, glad you liked it. One day I'll play the original!
