Top 10 is a bit harsh. Scoring in this game is very difficult, and not many people can break 9mil.

Keeping it to 20 or 30 would be better.

Yeah. I've only been playing it since yesterday, but already I've realized that it's going to be pretty tough chaining all the levels.

Chaining all the levels is indeed tough, but you can get into the top ten just by learning the trick to milk the first boss, which doesn't take too long since the first level is so short.

Really low score but a very rare 1cc for me, helped along by that special power up which gives you homing options.

Haven't really looked at scoring techniques or anything. Should probably do that sometime...

You should start playing again, Icarus. This game needs some more competition to give me a reason to bring out my board again.

It went good enough this time.. at 26 million I went in one direction to pick up the medal which started to drop.. then the 26 million extend dropped on the other side of the screen, I missed both! then stuggled to Gigamanta, actually dodged that stupid part, and died in amazement ;)

Congratulations! Looks like my ancient score has been knocked off second place at last, and by my teammate too. ^_-
I think at least 40mil is possible if you can manage to master the three major scoring chains - Axebeak (11mil), Cyclops (10mil), complete Naval stage chain (about 15mil max) - as well as assorted chains from other stages.

That's 80k points short of reaching 1st place...keep it up Smraedis!

Now that I look at it, there are so few scores for advanced course, and none of them ever got past stage 6. Didn't anyone here ever attempted an ALL clear?

Done it :P

Smraedis - 29,194,340 - Flame Viper [C] - Stage 6 (SE)

No replays yet, I want around the 40 million mark please.
You sound right there Icarus, if I add the highest score I've made on each stage together, it is around 41 million at the moment, so its possible on a good run.
My biggest problem is not collecting the extends.. in this run I missed 2 in the middle of the naval chain, so I had to end it early.. for the rest of the run I was playing with just one spare life, and usually suiciding on every 2 million points.
Completely different to the 28.3m run, where I had a full stock at times.. but just kept on dropping all the chains.

Yes, gathering enough Extends throughout the run is a fine art in itself. If anything, you should not be using Shot at all for large portions of the game, and let the Bombs and Aura generate Extends via flying drones that litter the stage. It is okay to let a few Extends drop as long as you have at least two in stock at all times, to allow you to continue to chain.

Arsed up the stage select which missed out the desert stage and only took 2mil from axebeak. Didn't notice I had 3 lives in stock for the whole of the railway stage and rank went crazy for the boss rush at cloud.

Should do better soon.

Yeah, I guess I shouldn't try to blow up all the helicopters while chaining the middle of the naval stage ;) now I just keep on messing up at silly points.. but in this run I full chained the naval stage.. and then collapsed at the sea side..
I know I could have been on 30 million if I didn't mess that stage up again... also I'm wondering if I should give up on the sea side, and play for score in the Desert stage instead..

Getting worse at Axebeak, only took 1mil from him on this credit, but getting the seaside chain down quite nice and x64'd a large amount of the stage.

I should stop playing this game ;)

Smraedis - 31,527,070 - Flame Viper [C] - Stage 6 (SE)

Yes.. I died at that point :oops: oh thanks everyone too ;)

Getting better on the naval stage... only dropped the combo at the end of the naval stage because I went a bit nervous, as I was down to one life and trying to collect an extend.. then another one came out too :D
40 million soon, well hopefully ;)

Keep at it freddie, you are doing quite well, the sea side stage is quite easy to chain with the Blade Owl, and the naval stage is possible with it too. 20 million sounds like a good target for that ship.
