Well, played a couple of games tonight. 77.000 was my highest  :oops:
I got a better score, closer to 100.000 a couple days ago but it didn't save (pressed wrong button).

Far from your record Wurstkopp,
but at least I have something to aim for  :)

EDIT: Today I got to 112.000.
Getting a bit better.

Great scores, they're in the list now. :)

I think the "magic barrier" in this game is located at around 300k. If you can break it everything else is possible. I played for half a year every day to break it. It was hell on earth. :lol:

Good to know about the "magic barrier".
Need a little more practice then :)

How chaotic this game looks and plays, I love how you keep progressing with tiny steps.
So it's not just luck but skill.

Yes I think that is what I love about the game too ! When you've never played the game you are already glad you survive the first level....but after a while the first 5 or so are not that hard anymore....

My "barrier" now is the one with the diagonal moving grass mowers that turn into computers or is it the other way around....?

For those who don't frequent UKVAC I got my highest score to date the other day and posted it on there....

This was done on my scratch build Robotron using the latest Jrok board with the Tie Die roms..

Difficulty setting 5 recommended,3 life start and extra life every 25,000

I rapped the waves at 256 which took the wave 'difficulty' back to the original starting wave 1...then got it back to wave 99 so if you continue counting the waves after the 256 rap around I got to 'wave 355'...

well chuffed.... ;D

My scratch build for those who haven't seen it....

A thread from the dead  :D

I noticed I hadn't put up my new score on Robotron I got a few weeks back...

Up until then i'd been playing not that well averaging around 1mill each time I had a game..I expected the same with this game but I were to be proved totally wrong...

The game lasted around 7hrs with a score of just over 25million  :D

I wrapped the waves at 256 three times and worked it back up wave 61....I did 'kill' the game off as I were really hungrey and my back was bloody acheing from just standing there for all that time..... :D

It was on the same settings as last time...

Difficulty....5 (Recommended)
Extra life....25,000
Starting lives...3

It was done on the 'TIEDIE' rom Jrok board hence the score showing up as 25,000,000+ (The original Williams boards 'clock' at 10,000,000)
