Good looking game but I just can't get anywhere on it.

Damn! I'm just third now!!!

I haven't played this game anymore after my best score... I should try to reach at least 2 millions of points but I am going in Florence for the weekend and it will be hard for me to find some time to play before Saturday evening...

Most likely I won't be able to improve my score but it was fun and challenging playing against two great gamers like john4p and linesmachine!

Florence is maybe the most beautiful city in Europe, I think you'll easily get over it if you "only" get bronze in this game. Yeah was a fun battle!

Today is the final day of the round, and just a reminder about the forthcoming vote for the Year round as detailed in the original post, so if you reckon you're about to emerge victorious today, please send me a PM sometime today with your choice of year so we can get things moving smoothly for the next voting thread tomorrow, thanks.

Great technical achievement, but at the cost of hardly being able to work out what is going on half the time. I ended up focusing on dodging the bullets instead of being able to aim at the bad guys.
Oh... they should have chose a better colour palette too, and shrunk the game screen enough so that the score was actually readable (e.g. on a black background).

Since my lead felt fragile I had another session. Managed to improve again:

So that's another round done and dusted.

john4p takes an easy gold medal (despite his last score I can't believe his lead was ever under any threat).

LinesMachine's highly creditable effort unfortunately only got him a distant second place in the end.

liviux76 was the only other player to break the million points barrier and has been rewarded with bronze.

This all means john4p retakes the lead in the standings, but only has a six point advantage over liviux76, who in turn is a further ten ahead of LinesMachine in third. ChrisN82 and myk are further back in fourth and fifth respectively.

In the team duel, having two high scoring players has ensured the round belongs to EAB, who now lead 4-1 for the season.

Congrats on your score, mate!
As said I came back home yesterday evening after two long days in Florence... to be honest I tried to play a bit but I wasn't in the mood so I quit, but for sure I wouldn't have been able to reach 3 million points anyway. I'm happy that EAB has won again!

Thanks liviux! I think anyone getting over 1 million could possibly reach 10 millions. If he had enough time, dedication and coffee. Glad the round is over now...
