@OorWullie Yeah, I'll have think or am open to suggestions of what game to use as the basis of inspiration. Thanks buddy πŸ‘

Wow! Well, I knew 115K was doable, and I almost had it. Gratz to my Japanese chum, whoever you are. Well played and I'm glad I could push him. I'll have to sacrifice farm animals to beat that...

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@GrailUK Noticed the other night you had played TERRA CRESTA for 40 HOURS!!! Insane. Game has only been out about what 2 weeks?

@Agent721 Thanks mate. Yes I did,well everything except for the art. There's a few apps that make it easier to do images like this than ever before but it still takes times to get it to all blend in and look like part of the same image.

Back on top, well done! Funny to imagine a Japanese gamer somewhere constantly checking the leaderboards to see where they stand!

@Agent721 I'm certainly doing my best for Western representation in the top 6!

I was all set to absolutely smash my Terra Cresta score there .66,500 with around a minute left on the clock.No lives lost and a half powered up ship. Then I absolutely collapsed in spectacular fashion,losing all my lives in a 20 second period and falling short of my previous best.Nightmare!

I done something crossing the water and received big points ,several thousand. Was from those little turrets that pop up. Not sure what I done.

@OorWullie There is a spinny orb that travels horizontally. If you shoot it, it fires 6 big bullets. These bullets can destroy ships and turrets and instead og getting 100-300pts, each will give you 1000pts! So when you see those, stop shooting, time a shot and let the bullets clear the screen.

At the second water area, you get a squadron of ships (which you can shoot), then some turrets then the orb THEN another squadron. So pick off a turret so you can have a clear shot at the orb, shoot it then dodge bullets. There is a huge scope for improving your chain

(There is another orb on the 4th land stage.)

@GrailUK Cheers pal ,good to know. I know I've got an 80k plus in me with this one. Making it to the 5th ship upgrade intact gives me the most problems. Those damn looping enemies right before it, I'd say they get me 8 times out of 10.When I do make it though I can go on a good run after that.

On another note,I emailed Hamster today and asked if they would consider adding TATE mode for Caravan and High Score mode. I'm sure they can make it fit and still have the leaderboard underneath. They emailed back saying

"Hello,thank you for your mail.
It will be a reference for development.

Kind regards"

Every time I hit the reply button today, I get sent back to the main NL page. Anyone else getting this problem?

Righty. I am genuinely out. 115k was my grail and I am bloody chuffed I managed to beat it. Doubling the score of half the leaderboard! (sorry @Lroy). If my Japanese friend can best it, then it's all his. I am obviously missing a trick and I want to play something else lol.

Another Steredenn high score, this time on the daily challenge so unfortunately doesn't count towards the overall leaderboard. 781M is pretty good though, I was hoping to break a billion but died on final boss 3rd loop.

@GrailUK Bloody marvellous my good man. Well done. I've not put many runs in this week, football fever what with the end of the season and now the World Cup on the horizon has seen me glued to my Manager Mode Career in FIFA 18 (the game is on sale for Β£18 in the EU eShop right now, the cheapest price yet for anyone on the fence). I've read your recent tips to @oorwullie but still can't actually see what spinning things and bullets and what not I'm meant to focus on to increase me score, lol! So I'm stuck scorewise, where I was at the end of last week.

Seems that he/she did it again by 1000... It's been kinda fun to follow this rivalry.

@GFoyle ...I was slacking...

Edit. Oh no. I think I just found a way to smash that score. Ok, I'm not out. I'll play till midnight.

@GrailUK

You win! I didn’t get a chance to play much this week, and even if I did, I’d never reached your score! Well done.

Ikaruga is next??
