Glad to have 3 weeks off now. ;)

Let's see if capehorn can win the Knockout for the 5th time or if Wolfadawn can prevent that.

Yes it was a very promising run but for some reason I always screw up in the levels 55-60.

It was truly hard earned, but Wolfadawn did it. He's the one to finally bring balance to the...

Yeah good to know.

48 hours left for malko to beat lifeschool (unlikely capehorn will be topped).

If you didn't deliberately go for the hurry up ships right away then this score is surprisingly good. Maybe at some point you had 5x active when you got a bonus and just didn't notice.

@malko: Due to the new rule lifeschool's score is now 10M lower. So you just have to beat 8,244,915 (currently).

Well, his 17M score was without the new rule "only 3 money ships" so maybe he won't get anywhere near this and you're already on his (skill) level now. On Lemon he said he's aiming for a 4M-score (?).

Yes, once you have a good weapon you must play in a way that minimizes the risk of collecting another weapon, skull or question mark.

Got promoted from Admiral to Ensign shortly before I went game over. The "only 3 money ships"-rule is quite crippling.

Ah okay. Yeah the money it contains differs. Sometimes you get a lot of blue coins and then can get 1.5k which is enough for Plasma+autofire+speed+extra bullets.

You could wait for the money ship to appear in levels 1 and/or 2. It'll give you a nice headstart. But it's also tedious and not much fun.
