At Arcade Club last night.
Really want to 1cc this game now.

739030 Level  5-4

Fairly certain that the game is set to hard at AC - the snakes seem to appear out of nowhere.

I might start practicing on this. Last time I played it I got around 100k but hardly ever play it at all. I used to be great on the Master system version.
Such a good game when you're on the skateboard.

That's a healthy score for 5-4. Either I'm missing lots of points somewhere, or you kept dying at a point heavy section.

Trying to pick up and kill everything I can, and trying to max out the angel runs when I can as you can really get some big points on certain levels if you hit enough objects, including a 5k bonus for one object.

Also have you noticed the Fries that give you 1000 points, they only seem to appear if you jump at certain points i.e. the end of 1-3 just after the egg and on 4-3 when you get the Doll I found out today there are 2 fires if you do 2 jumps just after.

I've also found that as least one of the eggs (1-4) gives you a mushroom instead of a milk jug if you shoot it instead of bumping it, there may be others but I pretty much try to shoot them all now where I can.

Starting to practice the 5-4 Boss and then the 6th and 7th areas as that's where I'm starting to get stuck, got to 5-4 and had more lives than the screen can show and lost most of them on the boss again.

Yeah, angel pickups really bump up the score. Last bonus on these is 10k, before cycling back to 500 points. I have noticed the fries as well, though haven't given them too much thought regarding locations. I think all the x-4 levels have the health/mushroom egg choice depending if you shoot or run into them.
The bosses start to get quite tricky fron the 5th area. Small jumps seem to be the order of the day and keep fairly close to the boss as well helps.
Definite difficulty ramp up from area 6. There's numerous jumps that are quite the trick to pull off consistently. If you dont perform the jump precisely, there's usually a spotted egg to greet your landing. There's a cloud jump near the end of 7-2 that gives me the willies every time. You'll know which one if you've seen it...

Love the game though, despite it's cheap tricks.

Yeah have played all the way through using save states to keep going as found you cant continue from area 7, it does get pretty mental, and didnt realise it went up to 10k for the angel will have to try getting that.

In terms of scores just played through to increase my max to 867770.

End of area scores for reference are

Area 1 - 132k
Area 2 - 312k
Area 3 - 523k
Area 4 - 710k
Area 5 - 865k
