These baby raptors spawn infinitely:



So don't kill more than 1 of them per plant! Since there's no time limit that'd not just be milking but leeching (which is always forbidden).

and isn't it possible to kill the plant?
(you can see how much I have played this game BitD (back in the day) with such question )

Today is the first time ever that I've played this. Don't know if you can destroy these thick plants - I wasn't able to.

Wow, great score!

I have to ask, how did you do it. Which route did you take at the bone bridge. And did you use autofire. oh, and do you get extra score for killing the final boss?

I remember there was a way to blow up those plants, but I cant find a way to do it. I know its only possible in a certain 'mode', which means you only have time to do it to maybe 3 of them. And inside are often items like full health and lives.

No autofire and I didn't even reach the final boss (I think I was pretty close though).

I dropped off the bridge and thus had to swim.

No milking/leeching either. Only clearing up the levels.

I think there is an Elevator level, then the Gallery, then another underwater level, then you fight all the bosses in turn. There is a waterfall level, and a very small red level, and then its the final boss.

A great game and still holds up today.

This might be a close round.

He was only "Sound Support" for this game, he didn't compose the music.

I can only imagine the bonus games made the difference, as I know I didnt leave 27k around on the levels. How do you do it? I say we should award 1 billion for killing the final boss, and so I win the round.

Well, now I've beaten it with 8 lives to spare:





Score was better before though - screwed up a few bonus rounds.
Yes I think those are essential, including the hidden ones.

I'll upload the playthrough next week...
