Nice work! It seems the World Record is something like 32 million, so you've got that to aim for now. :wink:

my copy arrived today. I'm pretty deep into The Last of Us for gaming time right now, but I'll try to give this a shot later tonight.

Update so we don't fall too far behind -

rufus777 - 11,381,000 - ALL - Hit 201 / Chain 141 - Cotton1/Appli1/Silk - Saturn
mjmjr25 - 2,192,600 - Stage 3 - 38 Chain / 300 Hit - Needle/Cotton 1/Cotton 3 - Saturn
ExedExes - 2,083,500 - Stage 4 - 39 Chain / 23 Hit - Cotton 1/Cotton 2/Cotton 3 - MAME
DocHauser- 2,054,800 - Stage 3 - 50 Chain / 193 Hit - Cotton 3/Appli 2/Appli 3 - Shmupmame 2.2
pierrot - 1,901,600 - Stage 3 (boss) - 74 Chain / 145 Hit - Appli 1/Appli 3/Silk - Saturn
noiseredux - 876,000 - Stage 3 - chain? - Needle/Appli 3/? - Saturn

Now that I'm done with that other TR game for the month, I hope for 1 or 2 more good efforts at this. I feel I may have stonewalled my best score on this one, but I'll try it again before the month is up.

I'm back !

ExedExes - 2,867,600 - Stage 4 - 23 Chain / 102 Hit - Needle/Cotton 3/Appli 2 - MAME

Image

I focused more on hits getting as high as 30-60 multiple times and as a result, many more higher-value point bubbles in the process, hung on to take out more 50k dragons at the Stage 1 boss (and realized that the bosses have a TIME LIMIT), and canceled a ton of tentacles on the Stage 3 boss, something about that technique I really enjoy. Also got the no tea bonus on Stage 1 and 2, easier with a smaller character.

Update then:

rufus777 - 11,381,000 - ALL - Hit 201 / Chain 141 - Cotton1/Appli1/Silk - Saturn
ExedExes - 2,867,600 - Stage 4 - 23 Chain / 102 Hit - Needle/Cotton 3/Appli 2 - MAME
mjmjr25 - 2,192,600 - Stage 3 - 38 Chain / 300 Hit - Needle/Cotton 1/Cotton 3 - Saturn
DocHauser- 2,054,800 - Stage 3 - 50 Chain / 193 Hit - Cotton 3/Appli 2/Appli 3 - Shmupmame 2.2
pierrot - 1,901,600 - Stage 3 (boss) - 74 Chain / 145 Hit - Appli 1/Appli 3/Silk - Saturn
dsheinem - 1,129,800 - Stage 3 - Silk/Needle/Cotton 1 - Saturn

Getting things started with Rapid Hero:

dsheinem - 303,840 - Stage 3

I really like this one. I'm gonna bitch like crazy if people use autofire though.

Also: if anyone liked Cotton Boomerang enough to buy it, it is on my trade list now :)
