Turns out I might have underestimated this game. At around 120k or so, the game really messes with the timing and it becomes almost impossible for me to play. So, here's the best score that I got. I might try again later, but I guess I'm fine with this being my final score as well.

Somewhere in that range, the seahorses start coming out twice per sonar arrow. For those rounds you need to jump the top when the sonar leaves the screen, and once again almost immediately.

 

also around that time, it seems like there isn’t enough time after jumping the seahorses to jump immediately and catch the seagull. So, instead you have to  porpoisely bump your snout on the seahorses (Hope the squid isn’t within one length) and jump up to catch the seahorse. I never could get the timing down perfectly and would always lose a couple of dolphins getting used ram the new timing.

Pretty neat and unique game! I think I could do better with more practice, but I kinda put off playing this one until the last minute and I had never played Dolphin before up until about half an hour ago. Anyhoo...

First time playing this one. I did it without reading the instructions lol. Looking at other people's high scores, I wish I did 😦.

 

Score: 2,680

Yeah, this game is pretty much impossible for me at this stage. The timing is just too awkward. But hey, I made some improvement! I'm probably done with this game... probably.

Okay okay, this is most likely my final score. The game actually gets significantly easier later on. The timing is much more predictable and easier to manage. It's no perfect score, but I'm still pretty happy with what I got. I also posted a picture of my bonus lives this time.

I really wanted to get 18 extra lives on this one, but although I can beat the game consistently, I'm not having any luck breaking my 12 lives. I'm actually having a harder time in the beginning now that I've gotten much better at the end. It's like the first 40k are frustratingly slow in comparison and the climb to 100k makes me want to fast forward. Still love this game, but I think I just need a break. Great round all around :) 🐬

Okay fine, HERE'S my final score. Goddamnit, I wanted to get that perfect score so bad, but I don't have enough time for another run. I really did try, but I was ultimately defeated. Never playing this game again.

@Vocelli, not sure if you made an error here, but shouldn’t the next non-tie score be one higher? The top player scores 50, and then you count down by 1, so the next non-tie score should be +39.

 

(51- <player place>)  = score

1st = 50

2nd = 49

...

11 people with Amazing!
(51 - 12 ) = 39 for Jaden
