@Dr. Morbis im at 40k right now. think i can get there by weeks end?

Shouldn't be a problem if you keep playing.  Once you've got four options it's pretty smooth sailing for a long while.  If I was hell bent on winning this week, I wouldn't stop until I had one-lifed the game, but as it is, I'll sit back and see if you can catch my score - I'm sitting pretty anyway for a top 5 finish as of right now, which is all I ever ask of the regular season games... 😉

Are you winning this one, kiddo? 😉

Reserved for SCORE!

SCORE EDIT #1 - Died on (what I think is) the final boss of the boss rush, 241,800:

Ahhh, too bad. This would be a great score for morbis. That guy should be proud. But your handle appears to be DR. morbis. Rules do say to put your username, not a short form nickname, in the picture. Im sure you will enjoy playing again though once you prepare a proper name display.

whats curio mean? whats more interesting is you will lose to someone of such a low skill level 😁

I wouldn't be at all surprised if you beat my score, because I already know how tenacious you are (good thing to know if you ever make the tourney 😉 ).  The only thing really stopping me from wanting to play any more is the speed level.  I beat this game about ten or so years ago, and the toughest part was memorizing this one later level with super-fast scrolling; no way do I want to go through that many playthroughs again to train my brain to get through that level for one or two extra points in the standings...

Haha, if you're going to call me out on that technicality, then I technically have zero points on the season.... 😛

And I've gotta say, I forgot what an incredibly awesome game this is!  But the slowdown is a freakin' killer...

It's the exact same as Gradius, just with different levels, so a totally standard shooter, but yeah, I played through it before, years ago... 😛
