    The looping section can be quite boring, here are some additional highlights of the run.

    46:57 - got distracted and samurai kills me, struggle to recover and lose some more lives.


    49:25 - die again, I'm super distracted because I realised the twitch stream has an audio problem and was trying to fix it while playing


    53:30 - die again, down to 4 lives


    57:41 - the samurai strikes again, lose another life


    57:55 - die again, down to my 2nd last life


    1:15:58 - samurai strikes again, down to my last life


    1:16:01 - shows my last life and score is only at 3,572,950, not even at the halfway mark.



    2:41:27 - score max out 9,999,950 and roll over

    2:50:37 - start of the last level - unlike the other levels the enemies keep respawning and can get a bit hairy as you'll see some close calls.


    2:51:46 - beat the last boss


    2:51:51 - the games ending and game over

    By purposely missing the entrance on level 10 and playing 10, 11 and 12 on basically a loop to run up the score aren’t you point leeching? It seems like as long as you don’t get killed one got do that on an infinite loop making literally any score possible. Am I wrong on this?

    I see 2 hours 32 minutes and 42 seconds of a loop killing the same guys over and over again.

    I raised this a year ago and didn't really get any responses, here is the link to the post https://www.twingalaxies.com/sacrieo...-points-record


    Since then I've discovered, some more info about the game which i'll elaborate on below.

    Every 100,000 points you receive an extra life until you reach a 1,000,000 points, so after that there is no more extra lives and it comes down to how long you can keep playing the levels if you choose to.

    There are 5 hidden green scrolls to collect, these are required to open the secret door to the last level.

    If you miss a hidden green scroll, completing level 12 will take you back to the stage you need to find the hidden scroll on. Then keep repeating the levels in order until you find them all.

    There is a message that tells you how to enter the secret level, if you miss the entrance you will keep repeating levels 10, 11 and 12.


    The only way to beat the current Twin Galaxies NTSC score is by looping the levels over and over

    The score was originally take from a magazine back in 1991, which was submitted by photograph. Here is the link https://archive.org/details/Electron...1991/page/n143

    I beat the score on PAL using the same technique and it was verified, not as big a score because i wanted to test the waters before going for a score max out and roll over.

    Hope this helps and happy to discuss further

    Yes from me.
    Current record from magazine submission is only possible with looping. No category rules against this technique, and a standing record obviously uses the same. Player continuously completes the boards without remaining on one, or taking advantage of point tricks within a single board. Constant challenge/threat throughout those cycles - no easy points. Completes the game, no continues used.

    That's right, pretty riveting game play right there. Gets pretty boring but does take some practice to sit there and do it over, and over, and over and over, and over again without dying.

    The policy reads

    "A means by which a player accumulates additional points in game while engaging in activities that do not contribute to progressing to the next stage, screen or level, and while such activities are engaged, a player is not inhibited to progressing to the next stage, screen or level during commission of said activities. In general, a player should always be making a meaningful or conservative attempt towards progression within the generally accepted intended spirit and direction of the game." The rules that follow governing leeching/hunting/point-scrabbing shall apply universally to all arcade, home console, emulation, hand-held, mobile and PC-based gameplay efforts.”

    By playing levels on loop for well over 2 hours you are not making meaningful or conservative attempt towards progression. Whether another did that in the past is not relevant. That old score needs disputed if that’s the case.

    just my rookie 2 cents.
