The graphics are such a low resolution on this version, the Alien armada looks like Corn Pops on the yellow levels.

Another record already in serious jeopardy

The Earth armada puts up a heck of a defense, I'm here to tell ya. There's a big difficulty spike after Mars.

By the way, there are some bugs in this game, none of which help you score points. There is something wonky on the Uranus run (spare us the Uranus jokes please), where if you have four lives in reserve, sometimes the game refuses to advance on to the next warp after you kill the final enemy. You will just keep dodging meteors until you decide to suicide, and then at the start of a fresh life, the game will again advance a stage. This has happened multiple times to me during this HSC, where I had to give up a life to advance early in the game, and always when I had 4 reserves.
There is also a graphical glitch that will scatter enemies on the screen as stationary objects that can't be interacted with. Nothing happens other than obstructed vision really. This glitch gets fixed upon stage completion.

If that's for real, this is a record that without some hacking will never fall !!!!!
Considering that doctorclu's record has stood nearly 10 years, this is one hell of an achievement !!
My best is in the 259k range and the game gets crazy at that point... BIG CONGRATS !!!!

Totally legit. Here's a picture of my gaming rig used for the attempt. The joystick I have makes a big difference, my hands don't cramp up at all.

Awesome score !!
