I'll start things off: 16,700




Died at first boss. Anybody know what the powerups do? As far as I can tell, the P upgrades your weapon, another one (can't remember which) is armor (can get hit without dying) and another makes you turn into a fireball when you reverse gravity - I assume that makes you invincible, though I'm not sure.

did you get that score by camping? This game you can just sit there and let the infinite enemies come to you. Tape down the shoot button and come back in a couple of hours.


EDIT: I tried camping on level 3-1, too see if it would work and I couldn't do it, I didn't realize this game had a time limit, so unless there's a point with enemies that score a lot more than the one on level 3-1 camping wont work as the enemies don't score enough to get a decent score before time runs out. I can't get past level 3-2 so...if you didn't camp, share your secrets please.
