  • 79,250 - SpaceShooter
  • 70,050 - Gorfy
  • 16,950 - jblenkle
*Liduario discovred bug in his 131,850 score

Hi Dan,

I'm writting this message because I played a few more games of Rainbow Invaders and didn't get close to my high score. I managed to get 94,730 which is too lower than 130k.

And in one game I discovered a bug that gave me all lives again. The score had some garbage and my lives were full again, after hitting an enemy, the score returned to its normal aspect.

With all said, I have some serious doubts about that high score, I'm thinking it was due to a bug, of course, not intentionaly caused. That game was until now the best I could play, but the score difference is huge!

So, I would suggest a bug warning and dicarding that 131k score.

he sent me a pm with a new score

the tournament starts on online as a high score contest
and then attendees at the show try to beat the top score
done online.
there are prizes for the show one (and I might give a copy of the color program
to the online winners if the playr didn't get beat)

This game definitely has some scoring glitches. I had a score of 85k going, when abruptly 10k was added to my score and all my lives were restored. I assume it was a glitch, unless there's some feature of the game intended to produce this result. I ended up with 98k for the game, but I'm not posting it since I doubt it's legit.
