I've been trying to pick well-known, popular games the last few weeks so that more people will participate but, though AFAIK this game isn't especially well-known, it is so dang good that I picked it anyway.

Died at first boss. Anybody know what the powerups do? As far as I can tell, the P upgrades your weapon, another one (can't remember which) is armor (can get hit without dying) and another makes you turn into a fireball when you reverse gravity - I assume that makes you invincible, though I'm not sure.

87,600, playing on my BlackJack so I can't take a screen shot. I love this game, it's so much fun, but it does take practice. It took me a long time to get passed level 2, I made it to 3-2 this time around.

Thanks for bringing this game to my attention. The gravity reversal dynamic is quite unique. It's a good challenging game. I like it.

did you get that score by camping? This game you can just sit there and let the infinite enemies come to you. Tape down the shoot button and come back in a couple of hours.

 

EDIT: I tried camping on level 3-1, too see if it would work and I couldn't do it, I didn't realize this game had a time limit, so unless there's a point with enemies that score a lot more than the one on level 3-1 camping wont work as the enemies don't score enough to get a decent score before time runs out. I can't get past level 3-2 so...if you didn't camp, share your secrets please.
