I've made about 6 runs tonight so far. I'm still getting the hang of the scoring system. It can be confusing sometimes because I've gotten up to the swamp stage(2-2) with only 6.8 million, yet I scored 7.8 million in stage(2-1) on certain runs. I guess it's all about catching those crowns and using your super power multiplier.

This was done with all stages @ level 2 difficulty, which is "normal" according to the title screen. I might try a few rounds on arcade to see if there are any major game play differences.

7,801,095 - fvgazi - stage 2-1 Boss -Caspar - Xbox360

I'll play some more tonight and hopefully I can catch up to that whopping 31 million!

I can make it through 4 or 5 stages and be around 7-10 million and then it just start chaining the hell out of it. I still have a 2 or 3 runs in the 7-8 million range for every run over 20mil.

Yeah, check arcade mode though, see if you get single digit scores - lately i've been getting random digits (not ZERO) at the end of my score, which is very odd. I've not played the xbox version yet, so don't know if this is arcade specific or not.

This is my score from earlier in the week - note it does not end in zero?

Should we be selecting "2" on the difficulty for all stages for this thread?

Again, I don't know the xbox differences. On the arcade version you can only select a difficulty (1, 2, or 3) twice per game - so I have no choice but to play (2) stages at level 1, (2) stages at level 2 and (2) stages at level 3. And then the bonus stage is default at difficulty 3.

Well... I read the instruction manual and took some of the tips for "high scoring". As for the LEVELS, on xbox 360 mode you can choose level 2 for every single stage, however in arcade mode you are forced into those choices. Not sure how to make this fair without different scoring ladders?

I'm now
17,672,588 - fvgazi - stage 2-1 - Follett - Xbox360


I noticed while playing arcade mode that the boss bullet patterns vary slightly or at least were out of order.
The instruction manual also mentioned these scoring tips. Let me know if this helps your arcade score.

-----Manual-----
Get Your Item Counter to 1000
* Take out enemies and grab as many point items as possible to raise your Item Counter to 1000.

*Enemies will drop different items depending on which type of shot they are killed with. For instance, Floating Eyeballs killed by tapping the shot button will drop 3 Crown Tiaras, Ogres killed by holding the shot button will drop 10 Crown Tiaras, and Floating Island killed with the targeting shot will drop 32 Crown Tiaras. Learn the shot properties of each enemy to score optimally!

* You will notice that Crown Tiaras and Great Crowns break into Skulls when they hit the ground. Try and grab them before they hit the ground when your item counter is not full yet.

* However, when you're in power up mode, it's better to let these items hit the ground! While powered-up, Skulls, Tiaras, and Crowns add to your Overall Counter which maxes out at 10,000. Every time you pick up an item, you cash in, so when you have 3000+ for instance, you will get 3000 points for every item you pick up. Tiaras and Crowns that bounce on the ground divide into multiple items, so let them drop and then dive in to collect the skulls before they disappear.

Recommended Survivial Route
Ch1V1: Lake Shore or Forest of the Lost (lvl3)
Ch1V2: Volcano (lvl3)
Ch2V1: Lake Shore or Forest of the Lost (lvl3)
Ch2V2: Graveyard (lvl3) kill the troll for a small cake.
Ch3V1: Port Town (lvl3) kill both trolls for two small cakes
Ch3V2: Swamp Wastes (lvl2) Destroy jitterbug's car for a small cake

Once enough scores are listed over time, i'll separate the scores by "Arcade / X360 arcade, and then X360 reg).

Yes, those tips help - almost never use the target shot button and there is so much stuff on screen, I wasn't noticing differences between holding shot and tapping shot.

I started playing the Arcade option on 360 and I'm enjoying playing on level 3! It's not that much harder and boy does my score go up much faster. I'm now averaging 10-15 million.
