    I enjoyed playing this well-made arcade conversion alone, mostly as the helicopter. I think I got as far as Wave 7/11.

    Reached stage 7. THE CONTINUE-PLAY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AFTER THIS STAGE. Ominous.

    Got the score 93500. Reached stage 8, playing from an emulated floppy disk in my Amiga 500 connected to my Beovision MX 3000. Best game of Silkworm I ever played.

    Got the score 282700. Reached stage 8, playing with a SEGA Genesis 6-button controller, which for this shoot 'em up-game seems more efficient than my good old 'The Arcade' joystick.

    Rockin' title music by Barry Leitch, who also did music for a lot of Gremlin-published games such as Lotus 2, Super Cars II, and Space Crusade.

    Since you can't continue from stages 8-11, and you reach stage 7 with less than 3 lives, it's probably a good idea to die on purpose, to have a shot at the final levels with 3 lives.

    Reached level 8 again. So hard to get through 4 levels with only 3 lives...
