Playing the Gunner's Gaunlet
In this mini game, you must defeat enemies and gain enough points to beat Beclem's high score. However, it's not as easy as it sounds due to a limited amount of ammo and a multitude of fiends that appear out of thin air. You need a steady hand and a calculating mind to get the best score--shooting at will just won't cut it.
To maximize your score, you must defeat your foes one after the other without taking any damage whatsoever. This way, your attacks turn into chains, multiplying the number of points you receive. To be successful, you must get to know the route by memory, including the starting locations of the fiends. You must also get good at switching between ammo and targets with ease.
There are 10 levels i nthe Gunner's Gaunlet mini game. To advance to the next level, you must defeat the level's high score. When you do so, you also get a reward. Of course, the higher the level, the better the prize--and the more difficult the course.
