    Not even half of the eventual high score ;-) [yer killin' me, @GregDeg LOL!] Heavy slow-walk point-pressing strategy, however, always advancing at least once every 3 seconds when not taking fire. ** contains NSFW language **

    Haven't watched yet, will in the A.M.-this is one where some players(you, lol!)are just too good-even if you linger, the game is trying to kill you the entire time, I think malingering is definitely OK on this type game, it's skill keeping you alive, even if you are baiting the game for points, I just think you have to be very highly skilled to "leech" on this game, negating the idea altogether.

    Big score, congrats!!!

    Thanks, Roger! Ill go even a step further ... even skill wont keep you alive on Stage 1. I mustve slammed that reset switch 50 times LOL! And you get no extra lives to replenish unless you advance to the next stage, where one can just forget about even attempting to stay still, and ya gotta constantly be bookin' it after stage 2.
