    Submission MessageI was expecting a max out at that 14434 mark and then it just kept going. Fun game while it's still playable in the first 4-5 rounds but after that you just have to hunker down and play super slow and conservative. Attempt starts at 14:38

    i always thought that was an odd number for a maxout. so just a coincidence so many tied for the same score? anyway, good to have that question finally answered. accepted.

    Super sweet John. Ya, gotta focus on the demons at all times in the later levels and be very patient.

    Nice score. I've always liked this game. Unfortunately, I've only achieved about half of what you got on my PS2. I also agree with GregDeg, that last stage was a bit insane!

    Great run, John! A great record to hold! I panicked for you @11,000 when things got blurry, but then it corrected itself.
    Nice to see that this game goes beyond 14,434. It makes me wonder what the heck went on back in the day that a referee or referees would cap the score for 3 players... (I say this because I find it hard to believe 3 players could hit this same unusual score while in survival mode), these 3 scores are apperently on video... just how high did those scores go? Anyone?
    Accepted!
    ...God gave video games to you...

    Yeah I was really wondering about that 3 player tie for this game. Seemed like such an odd number to have a max out at.
