Congrats, great score!

Question: Are you able to trigger a hidden 80K bonus at the first boss in 2 minute mode? There seems to be one when you don't fire at all until the boss. :?

Edit: yet another score - running into diminishing returns here, unfortunately.

Soldier Blade Special 2min Normal
Ed Oscuro - 585,700

I get rewarded for not killing the boss...? Probably from milking the popcorn he shoots while his core is exposed to increase my boss maxhit chain? 5min mode makes a lot more sense with this game's scoring system. Which means I have room for improvement on my 5min run, as I dropped my enemy chain a few times, and it is possible to fullchain at least the first section with the blue ship at full speed. Although I'm sure that's time and effort better spent somewhere else.

The lists are finally completely up-to-date. But a word of warning: post your scores in the proper format as specified in the first post (=as they show on the high-score lists) or they won't get added in. The lists are enough of a hassle to edit as it is.

Thanks! The links to the strategy sections are broken, though.

Yeah, I can see that. Oops.

That was enjoyable. I actually broke 500K! I think I'm done with SB for a little while, 550K seems impossible.

Soldier Blade Special 5min Normal
Ed Oscuro - 1,355,900

I'm not at all happy with that score as I missed some of the X0000 bonuses (the easy part!), but it's an improvement.

I'm starting to get a new pattern to show up in the 2min mode (at the end); don't think I can make that consistent though - especially not with this shit controller, haha

EDIT: I got this Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth score two days ago, can't beat it either lol:

Star Soldier Vanishing Earth 2min
Ed Oscuro - 24,486,745 - 7264 (red ship)

...I think it'd be helpful if people posted the ships they used :idea:

In any case, I don't much like the game - chaining seems like the reverse of Soldier Blade's "kill them fast" gameplay, and the perspective throws me off too (too many deaths from those reverse bomber things). Doubtless there are some hidden scoring opportunities we're all missing, o well

Minor improvement.
--------
=SOLDIER BLADE: 2 MINUTE NORMAL=
LGB - 525400
=SOLDIER BLADE: 5 MINUTE NORMAL=
LGB - 1113700

Okay, maybe one more score. Quite hilarious; on the first run I beat my score by 300 points! I think I could squeeze out maybe 10-20K more. 550K does not look so impossible anymore.

The second Carnival theme sounds like a tune from Megaman, I think MM6. Was it Mr. X's castle theme? I forget at the moment...
--------
=HECTOR '87: 2 MINUTE ATTACK=
LGB - 304000

I guess I'll try to claim 1st place on Hector '87 for a day. Oh, and just for the record: I can get 100500 without "trying".

Green ship for 2min, blue ship for 5min... IMHO red ship is mediocre for both (but feel free to prove me wrong!)

Also, because of the chaining, you have to kill stuff fast in order to get extra waves (which is why Sik has a larger chain than me, watch our videos). 28M seems reachable, since bonuses have a negligible effect on score in 2min mode. 5min mode... the Zeg bonuses and end bonus definitely have an effect.

Thanks for the info! I had a feeling the rather wide and diffuse forward spread of the red ship was breaking something. The angled side shots also aren't positioned right to take out popcorn - this game doesn't seem to throw lots around like Soldier Blade does, either. Most I've seen somes head on or from the sides, making red very useless indeed.

The bad thing about it: flickering green bullets that look like fruit. I know I missed a few bonuses in here.

You guys are mean, I was just wishing my friend sikraiken a good summer :(

Hopefully a few people can use the video. Moving onto 5 minute mode next, already at 152M and there's definitely room for more.

What activity from one announcement! About that first boss, your best bet is to always keep moving. Those claws can and will get you anytime. Also, never hang around lower than half the screen. Actually, you should hang around the ceiling.

Unfortunately, 2 Minute is the only one I have bothered with.

Right, I just wasted time on 'im. Never got hit in my latest run, but I was too far from the boss most of the time. It's actually pretty easy to tell when it's about to launch its claws upwards since it's dead stopped and not shooting bubbles (those are harmless anyway).
