I have always played in PAL mode so I' ve not experienced these super speeds. Also my game lasted about 5 and a half hours! It was around 5:30 in the morning and I'd been playing since midnight. I wrote my score down somewhere. It was a version before the newer money ships if I remember correctly.

I just got 170 million. Guess how I died? Yes, that's right - I picked up the damn doubleshot. It's not fair, I tell you.

I had $495,000 and died on level 343.

OK, this is the last score I will ever post. I just got 210,602,550 (NTSC mode) and died on level 431. I had $463,000 when I died.

I don't think I have to explain how I died because it was exactly how I die every time - an alien popped up and gave me a shit weapon before I could avoid it. I went through the entire level with single shot and only had one bloody alien left (that I had already hit 10 times) and I just had to kill that one damn guy to go to the next level. One or two more hits and he'd be dead, but he shat out loads of bullets at the exact second I moved under him to shoot.

Unless somebody can post a higher score (come on Steve, find that paper from 1995!) I'll just have to assume the title of "Champion of the Known Universe".

I'm not playing NTSC anymore, but I just played PAL - to see the difference.

There's no doubt about it: PAL is ridiculously easy compared to NTSC. I'm still playing, but let me just post a screenshot to show where I'm going with this:



(That's 475 million, not 75 million. I'm way past that now. I'll let you know when I'm finished.... maybe next week sometime )

I could have gone on forever... except I picked up a damn singleshot again. I picked it up at the beginning of the "broccoli levels" (as I call them) when a broccoli died in my face. Somehow, I made it through the next three levels, but I was down to my very last life (second continue). I warped to the store, praying not to get Warp Malfunction. Then I got... fucking Warp Malfunction (surprise!). With singleshot, no auto-shoot, no bullets and no speed, there was no chance.

Final score: 714,330,555
Level: 1341 (or is it 1342? I completed 1341 and died on Warp. Can't tell - it's on the scoreboard as 134)
Money at death: $457,520
Meteor best: 647,200

Too bad. I was hoping to see what would happen at 1 billion.
