Tips and tricks

  • On the first level, head directly to the right. After a couple of screens, you'll see an unusual 'V' formation of silver ships that resemble craft in "Time Pilot", heading up or down. This easy-to-kill formation gives you 8,000 points, a good start to the game.
  • The biplane from the original "Time Pilot" also makes a cameo appearance in TP84. To find it, fly right to the water and harbour area. Then turn vertically up the screen. When the biplane appears (over water), hit it with a missile, and you are rewarded with a free player!
