This trippy tubular shmup doesn't have an hiscore thread, nor a dedicated thread, although It always shows up in discussion about tube shmups.

So let's talk a bit more in depth here. It might be useful seeing that the game is still amazingly commercially available.

The game does a nice job of providing a tutorial with scoring mechanics, which seem quite elaborate: you can collect coins, and shoot at them to raise the value. You can alter the enemies given value by chaining them by color... And at the end of each stage you can decide whether to keep all the score or convert part of It in smart bombs. So far, so good.

However, this being in the western tradition, I also noticed with horror a "enter cheatcode" menu, and gamefaqs reports cheats like "keep your score even after death", which sounds like total anathema.

So the first obvious question is: Is scoring in this game broken? Is infinite milking possible?

You forgot to mention a great platinum soundtrack by The Crystal Method.
