Great job, xraydash! As I doubt I'll be able to beat that, I humbly bow to your gaming skills. I'm gonna keep trying, but...wow.

I will never get to those later stages so it doesnt matter.

Took a few more tries at it and managed to bump my score up a bit. I think I can do better though.

Yikes! Good thing we're moving on to another game...

But seriously- good run, devilmyarse. And thanks for the compliment, Ack!

Just this night I thought I'd try again before moving onto Kid Icarus. Two more hours of frustration, and I was getting consistently 20k. I never seemed to get past 24, 25k though. I got so close to 30k and the extra bomb and I was thinking of calling it a day. But then I got lucky and managed 6k on the first wave, focused a lot and had the 2nd wave went nicely without losing a single live and sparing most of the bombs. In the third wave, I got an extra live that let me get to 30k with some 2 or 3 lives to spare (excuse me for not remembering :P), got the extra smart bomb and managed this score (the world exploded, and I still scored a good bit after that).

I'm done, as I filled the score table.
