    Yay ! Thanks a lot 🙂

    It was quite intense at the end indeed. For the details, highest combo is x107, score multi x12, and enemies level 15.

    I’m sure there will be higher scores soon, I already did an eight ;p

      You missed out on an additional +1 to your multiplier by about a tenth of a second which would have made a big difference to the final score I think.

    I got this score on one of my early tries with a controller. I have yet to come close to it.

    I found an easy way to get 8/11 million scores all the time, first level up as quickly as possible till you get to the green growing thing. just circle around for it or them to grow really big. in the time just shoot everything that’s following you. at around 30/35 seconds left it should be big enough and destroy it. bomb the rest of the field and enjoy a 250x multiplier. do the same thing again till about 5 seconds left and repeat. my lowest score now is around 8 million and my highest score about 10,7 million.

      I’m not entirely sure if it’s possible but the first person to break 20mill in the Demo with video evidence is going to be getting a free copy of the game when it releases.

      NEW HIGHSCORE! 18,7 million. trying to fix my keyboard to get printscreen working or just taking a picture. I’ve had a higher chance before with 2 million score higher when the big numbers start. With some luck with the growth of those green things it’s possible to hit 20mill if you ask me.

      Awesome! Also it’s just revealed to me that there is a display bug in the scores. The score you get is correct so no worries there but the running total doesn’t take into account your static multiplier while a combo is in effect. This is why your score goes from about 10mill to 19mill when your last big combo ends.

      Oh, cool ! Also as you can see at the end, there is this weird bug with the name, a bar is added to the name, and if I push the A button, it adds another bar. I have to push down once to reach OK to validate but it will keep the bars in my name. I can use the keyboard and delete it, then validate with the mouse. But as I was recording, didn’t want to waste time ^^

      I’ve sent you an e-mail about it a while ago, I don’t know if you have read it yet.

      Grats! I see you used my technique. Glad atleast one of us was able to get it to 20 😀

    Oh well, I kinda use that strategy since the begining, but yeah, I waited a bit longer this time. 🙂

    It’s definitely possible to do more points if you are very lucky with the patterns and timing, I got two times about 18 million and died a few seconds before the end, I think I could have done 21, maybe more, because I had the perfect enemy positions and x12 multiplyer.

    It’s hard to get all the x1 multipliers, specially when they’re hiding in the middle of a green growing thing… I think I missed two in the last video.

    OH. NO. HE. DIDN’T. 28.582.223!

    how? first ball gave me around 15 mill
    2nd small ish ball gave me another 3 mill
    last ball got me that score… with a 10x multiplier

    This score is TOTALLY luck-based with a little skill involved of staying alive.
    I’m trying to get a good picture but u can’t make the 8 out as an 8 but more like a 0 xD damn u printscreen button work!

      Wow, that’s insane ! Well done dude !

      But what’s with the rotated phone shots ? Can’t you use printscreen/paste in paint, or Fraps, Xfire, HypersnapDX, etc… ?

      sadly my some of my keys on the keyboard don’t work for some stupid reason such as the F1 keys. I’ve been trying to fix it but I don’t know how 🙁

      Oh my, your computer works against you. Maybe it’s time to update your drivers and change your keyboard ? I have an azerty from 96 that’s still perfectly working, you want me to send it to you ? ;p

      Anyways, good job on the Crunch Time mode Rob, it’s really addictive ! I wonder what will be the other modes… Is Bombing Run still in works ?

      Rob good job on Waves, you made me spend SO MUCH time on the demo already, and time is very valueable to me these days. I bet the rest of the game will be just as sweet as Crunch Time is. I’ll never be able to get a new highscore with the score I have now (28,6 million) so I’m not sure if I still wanna play Crunch Time as much as I did untill there’s gonna be real ranking.

      Rob, thanks for all… your awesome 🙂
