So, I found another older score I should have posted to at the very least link to the Sky Shark link on the side of the page - where I made the loop and then some (died at the final boss in loop two). I set a high score then of 1,180,770 at area 199.
It's no secret that I love this game and I did play afew credits the other night after taking a beating on Fire Shark and damn - it's so good.
The Twin Galaxies high score is something like 3mil, which I have no doubt I could get after maybe a weekend of play as bullets get faster in subsequent loops, but good core patterns will stay the same. You just need to move tighter and quicker. It would be fun to have that record, but I have a feeling it would feel like an empty accomplishment due to the fact that there are a number of players who could and have beaten that score but never cared to submit to TG.
Either way, it would be fun to see if I could do it - so who knows? Maybe just go for the counter-stop?
