Aw man, you’re really speaking my language! This and Joust were the reasons I pined for a Lynx all through my childhood.

First score: 100250

I am stuck at level 7. After taking this photo I used both continues and just could not figure it out.

 

Man I love this game.

 

EDIT: @jeremiahjt I accidentally started a game and did not touch the controls through midway through the third level, and only steered when I did, and, uh, I beat your score…

I think you must not be shooting. You should constantly be shooting. It’s also important to memorize the locations of the orange flashing boost pads, the green stars (to generate a shockwave, basically a superzapper shot), and the orange non-flashing jumps. (Not all jumps are a good thing.)

 

I never even realized before this instant that STUN Runner is Tempest crossed with a racing game.

Oh yeah, well I just beat your score playing with only my feet.

 

Note: no photographic evidence exists as I accidently turned the Lynx off as I was taking a picture. I guess I am not used to using my phone with my feet.

It’s just a matter of constantly shooting, remembering where the boost pads and superzapper recharge stars are, and taking the outside wall in turns. Whatever you do, don’t get stuck behind the armored drones or your speed will never recover.

No high score screen, will have to remember to "pause" next time.

I recently saw Everything Everywhere All At Once and I am really cracking up at this now.

Ah Man....

I’ve only made it that far a few times, so you may still win. I would really appreciate some advice from @roadrunner since that score is insane.
