Do they give you additional credits if you get them all or have they some other kind of function??

Just like the stars for the single stages moons seem to be just an visual representation of how well you are scoring.

Given that the game is ment to make shmup fans out of everybody who plays Jamestown, I think its a nice idea. Given how playing for score is quite a foreign concept with most gamers completly oblivious to it no matter how big the numbers are on screen.

Given how most of popular genres just treat highscore as some tacked on concept which has no real bearing on the game itself, its totally understanderble that gamers automatically think that all games with highscore are the same.

Its an mechanic that other shmup devs could do with copying for their games
