I find the lack of a high score board for this incredible game to be disturbing, so I'm fixing that.

Game can be found here.

Please ensure you have version 1.00 of the game. This is my first time making a high score board, so if I flub things up, a kind PM or post to tell me I'm a moron would be appreciated. =)

RULES:
-All defaults (for Free Play: I'm only going to accept scores for the default difficulty (2), simply because I don't think I can maintain 10 tables).
-Have fun.
-Only keeping top 10 scores for each difficulty.
-Shoot Down % and Type are just for fun, really. If you can't get them, don't worry about it.

FORMAT:
Please stick to the basic format. If score is submitted incorrectly, I'm simply not going to include it.
Please submit speed run scores separately from your normal entries.
Submitting max combo and non-speed run times is purely optional, but it's fun to look at!

Sorry for getting lazy with the sections (type - time - max combo). Formatting lines is tedious and boring. =)

Ixmucane2 - 4413591 - ALL - 87.88% - Orbit/Cross/Zero-Shift

Stage 1: Orbit (Green DNA)
Stage 2: Orbit, Circle
Stage 3: Orbit, Cross, Laser
Stage 4: Orbit, Cross, Zero-Shift
I think Total Time and Max Combo statistics (In this game, 18m17s and 125 respectively) are at least as interesting as Shooting Down; the first is important because there is ample opportunity to milk bosses, esp. in level 5, to score and regain bombs (as opposed as rushing through), the second is important because chaining is rather difficult.
In my replay list, game lengths (for complete playthroughs) range between 12m52s and 21m11s: a very large variance, maybe there should be a special category for speedruns.

I'll add a speed run category and update the board when it gets to my planning period. =)

Amazing scores, Heartbeam! Is there anything you're not amazing at? :lol: I've only played this a handful of times, so I'm still trying to figure out how to score properly. =/

Simply get the Summon sub-weapon, it's just broken beyond everything.

All scores updated. Added TIME and MAX COMBO along with TYPE for all modes. Included SPEED RUN scoreboard to see who can clear the game the fastest.

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go try and NOT SUCK at this anymore.

For the stuff I neglected earlier.

Programmer
Time: 29'15"
Max Combo: 504

Heartbeam - 12'15" - Orbit/Circle/Zero-Shift

If I'm not mistaken it seems like the chain resets to zero once you score a hit with another summon, maintained by bombs during the charge state. Unlikely that it'll hold if you use the same boss summon, but I don't recall trying it. The highest 'regular' score I could see was just under 30M before being overtaken by all the nine digit score submissions.

The speed run was a little poor but I can't repeat whatever I did to end the fourth phase before reaching the 900 second mark. I can only guess it had something to do with destroying the orbs until they're all worth almost nothing, maybe not.

I tried to be fast, but I failed miserably with the globes in the last stage; at least I'm improving the kill ratio. The Zero-Shift doesn't lend itself to precise tactics...

The Summon makes a big difference against popcorn, but it doesn't seem so special in the last portion.

Got the fourth phase of stage five to end early again, but it was on Free Play with the chain around 1300 from bomb spamming. Something amidst the flood of 1s counted for 5000. The fetus I'm unsure about because regular shots don't seem to hit it but lock-on sub weapons do. Doesn't explain how limited energy Zero-Shift ended it like rapid bombing did.

Free Play score didn't exceed eight digits, and neither did the completion screen.

I'll update the scores tomorrow, I promise! It's been an interesting weekend.

Played a credit tonight, finally got the Summon weapon, but I didn't learn how Summon OR combos really worked until AFTER I nailed my 466 combo at the beginning of stage 5. Alas. Tomorrow's another attempt; hopefully I'll get into the 8-digit mark.

Standard User
Ransom - 7,854,751 - ALL - 97.08% - Orbit/Burning/Summon - 17'26" - 466

EDIT: Okay, I lied. High scores are all updated. I changed one thing: If you want a speed run time to be recorded on the list, please submit it in a separate entry in the correct format. I know this is anal and I'm sorry, but it helps keep me organized. =) I'm going to go ahead and try to sort through everyone's fastest times so far, and we'll just take it from there! :D

EDIT 2:

Speed Run
Ransom - 14'13" - Orbit/Circle/Zero-Shift - 244 - 3,834,692

I really need to figure out how to beat the mid-boss or whatever it is in stage 5 (embryo thing) much faster than I currently am! >=/

Careless and ended the second-last section too early, costing at least two more summons. One session is wearing enough for this game. Another day.

I don't think it has been brought up yet over here, so I give credit to this person for the question behind ending the fourth phase without timing it out.

Am I correct in assuming that the majority of the points come from milking the last boss? Stages 1-4 don't really seem to matter much score-wise; I think they only exist for getting the Summon sub-weapon. >=)

Section right before the boss. Keep shooting to stave off the item auto-collect. But if you're lucky (or somehow manipulate) and get several orb waves in a row...

So far getting around 6M from the first four stages by suiciding to increase the bomb stock then bomb chaining entire stages and bosses with pods on the side. The only scoring advantage the upper difficulties appear to have are the extra bullets to convert with the bomb, but then you have fewer lives to throw away for bombs and what looks to be the best spot in the upper right corner for stage five becomes increasingly difficult to survive without bombing. While being slowed down by charging the summon. I mean, you could get a few hundred thousand by bombing that one pattern with red/blue bullets on the final boss but it's not worth the time to wait and hope for that pattern. Or back to the one with the stream of orbs.

Then whatever that bug is to hit nine digits.
