So far I'm at Sector X with only 1 hit, pondering my next move

If I use the warp gates in Sector X, I can avoid the boss like I did in Meteo, but what then?

If I go to Sector Z, I can also finish with 0 hits by letting the Great Fox get blasted, but the trick is getting through Bolse what with the energy towers and core panels... hmm. even if I take my sweet time and not get the extra hits that's still what, 6 towers + 8 panels = 14 hits...

fudge, twin blasters weren't enough to open the gates... had to get another hit from Spyborg :/

and that also means I'll have to go to Titania and get yet another hit from Goras...............

dammit, looks like I can't destroy the towers without getting the +3, so that's an extra 24 hits

just finished Bolse with 32 (6 towers x4 = 24 + 8 panels = 32), bringing me up to 35 total

AAAAAARGH!!! I got hit +1 from Golemech >:(

that brings my final score up to 37, ugh
I guess the Player's Guide was right, 35 hits is about the lowest score you can get

if everything had gone the way I wanted, it would have been:
Corneria - 1
Meteo - 0
Fichina - 0
Sector X - 0
Sector Z - 0
Bolse - 32
Venom - 1

for a total of 34 hits, one less than what the guide shows. maybe next time

You could try to let your teammates get the final hit on each missile in Sector Z. You won't receive any points if they get the last hit. Easier said than done, but it would allow you to go to Area 6 instead of Bolse.

I remember trying something like this ages ago, but I don't remember what my score was. Pretty fun challenge!
Here and now!

thing about that is they only go after the missiles if they're not being attacked

So on the high-score screen, there's a counter for the number of lives you had during the course of the playthrough. Next to that, there's the "P S F" for your wingmen and a number beneath each. Does that mean there's a finite number of lives for them as well? I'm assuming they gain lives like you do when you get over 100 points in a level...so if you guys are doing low-score runs then that means they won't get extra lives. And since you're not killing enemies, you're also not able to save your wingmen....so when they have to go back to Great Fox for repairs, does that mean they never come back?
