I'm sure there are many different strategies concerning what to buy (that's part of the fun of the game), but mine is to pick up the flame thrower and the first shot upgrade as soon as they become available, then I start saving, only buying life items/upgrades/armor.

By the second-to-last stage I can then afford the ultimate Homing gun, which makes life a lot easier (and makes it easier to kill stuff/get zenny from then on).

Also search the stages for secret items, a lot of which give you extra cash. You can also find armor, so you don't have to buy it. In the first pyramid stage I take the lower route (the one with the many chambers) which I also believe has more zenny you can pick up.

Perikles – 1,631,000 – ALL

Added the picture I took right after beating the final boss since it's much easier to decipher the score on that one (617,800 + 13,200 for the remaining Zenny + 1,000,000 for the dress you can see in the lower left).

Finally got around to taking people's advice (ie, don't drop the flame thrower), and point-blanked the last boss with the homing laser. Another 1CC on my [very small] list!

Does, uh, buying the dress do anything? I'm curious. :P

At least in the MD and PCE versions the dress grants you one million points. :)

Ha ha; man, I was wondering what the huge-ass point increase was for. I thought some obscene milking was going on.

I'd like to get a better score, but the final boss is no fun at all. It's indescribably frustrating to play really well only to get pulverized by some unavoidable laser barrages. :|

Yeah, that's more like it! Recorded a video, will upload it in a day or two. :)

Edit: Here's the video.

The Japanese version of Capcom Classics Collection says Forgotten Worlds on the title screen, though all text and speech is in Japanese. I was playing it today.
