FINALLY! I somehow survived sector 5 of loop #2 and made it almost halfway into loop #3. Not sure I can push it any further than this... I'm pretty much at the limit of my skills here.

 

By the way, when I was a kid, I had nicknames for each sector. I called them:

Sector 1: Gravity-land

Sector 2: Ice cavern (due to the color)

Sector 3: The City

Sector 4: The Planet of Trash (it looks like a landfill to me)

Sector 5: Purple Cave

Sector 6: The Power Core

Sector 7: Alien Attack

Sector 8: Asteroid Field

Such a tough game! My son said, "I think this game is mocking me."

I think he's right!  ?

 

I just played maybe half a dozen games, and outside the first they were all between 10k and 13k, but I can't get much further than 4th/5th wave typically (today all games ended in 4th wave)

Another slight improvement.

7,145

 

After a few runs each time my score goes up, but it's hard to stomach the times where I shoot an enemy and the enemy doesn't blow up. Especially when I then end up running into the enemy and loosing a ship. However, the speed and the slight improvements are really exciting.

Weird game, the ship moves itself.

It sounds like you met one of the gravity balls. It confused me as well in the beginning, but I still think it is one of the factors that makes this game unique, not just one of many Scramble clones.
