Gold Medal strategy
- Difficulty: 8/10
- Recommended Craft: X-Wing, Naboo Starfighter
It's pretty much up to you what craft to use. With the X-Wing you'll have to start the "chicken" tactic earlier due to your lack on maneuverability. The N-1 has weaker shields though.
Dogfight until around wave 20-30. They'll start to get tough at this point. Do head on passes on them, then fly to the other side until they're at the bottom of the radar. Turn around, do another head on pass. Repeat over, and over, and over again. After wave 99, you'll fight Vader. He takes quite a few lasers or 2 homing advanced torpedoes. Don't bother to shoot him with lasers for accuracy, because a few lasers won't matter compared to how many you've fired so far.

Bryan Fink (email@example.com) tells me his strategy guide says the number of kills needed is 1300. Thanks Bryan!
And in case your wondering how your allowed 12 lives, every 10 waves Lambda shuttles appear, which give you an extra life.
- The Lambda shuttles.
- Vader's TIE.
- A ship with a R2 unit to repair damage is essential.
- The Y-Wing doesn't have the speed to gain distance for head on runs.
- Use your Targeting Computer as much as you want.
