I wish you could make the L and R buttons rotate through the weapons.  Anyways, apparently I suck at this game.  I can beat the first stage with no problem but can only but the first airplane level that reaches your base and I have trouble with that one.  I can't beat any other level.  Obviously, I need to figure out which plane to buy and use on each level, I think.  And yes, no high score after Game Over that I can find.

I'll apologize for the darkness on this, but I was trying to catch the score on the fadeout.  Made it to the last level, but everything fell apart there...

Looks like you're making good progress, SaturdayDevelopment! I, however, am not. For some reason, even once I've learned a level, I'm still making odd mistakes, and failing to execute cleanly. Maybe I get flustered too quickly, I don't know. But this one's gonna be an uphill climb for me, I think.

This might help, I started putting together screenshots of all the powerup locations.  Had a bad run this morning, so only have the first 3 levels so far, but will expand on it as I have time.

Got a 1CC on the SNES version on normal!  703,000  I'm probably going to focus on the arcade version the rest of the month (which I'm terrible at).

@shaggy, here are a couple of tips.

Use the cluster (the circular fireball) and phoenix missiles for defense during the level, and don't be shy about wasting them.  Every hit you avoid lets you take another hit in the boss fight.  For example, if you are getting surrounded or have too many enemies behind you, hit them with the cluster.  Note that the F14D carries 10 clusters, which is great for defense on harder levels.

Don't do the dogfight level (the one with the 3 pink stealths at the end) right away.  This level doesn't have any weapon power-ups, so your level will be stuck.  Play some of the other levels (like the desert) to get your weapon powered up, then those little planes will die faster.

Memorize the hidden powerups, they are invisible but show after you shoot them twice.  These are very helpful for the boss battles.  Most bosses have 1 or 2 powerups located right before and/or after them.  I documented all the ones I know about here:  http://saturdaydevelopmen...adron-power-up-locations/

Don't buy too many planes.  You want to have the F200 for the end.  I typically buy the F14D as soon as possible, then save money for the F200.

I suicide on the Canyon after picking up the two stars for bonus points if I need more money for the F200.  This can be done on other levels with stars too.

Been very much enjoying UN Squadron, even though I'm making progress at snail's pace. Getting stuck on trying to defeat the land carrier in the desert level. Also, what does everyone else think of the different characters? I usually use either Shin or Greg.

I've mostly used Shin, though I did try the other characters. I'll probably explore them more as the month goes on. My progress is slow, as well. For some reason, I haven't been able to get consistency in several of the levels yet. One time I'll sail through fine, and the next, a minor mistake in my movement sends me on a downward spiral of taking damage, and going down in flames before the boss. I did manage to beat the desert level last night, as well as the forest boss, finally, so I think at least I'm beginning to finally get somewhere.

Do the different characters play different or are they all the same?

Been making more headway. Finally am consistently defeating the sub, and closing in on beating the boss of the desert level

Don't quite know how to explain it, but the more I play this, the more it feels like an action/adventure game disguised as a shmup. Thoroughly enjoying it though.

Played a little tonight and didn't fare very well. Goes from fairly easy in stage one to murder after that.
