Oh la la, this month it's really tough ... I just managed to reach 15 000 after decades of tries, and howerer there are 5 players who are far above ... How it is possible to reach such a score, to go so far in the game without die a single time at this level of difficulty ... the enemies and projectiles are so so quick, it's nearly impossible for me to avoid all of them for a long time ...
However I use to be at least in the top 5 when I participate, but I think this time it will be unreachable ...

Getting all the yellow bells helps.

Yellow bells ? But it only gives 500 points by Bell I think ? So, it doesn’t increase much thé score ... And already, thé first Bell, I néed to take it grey to havé an explosion, otrhewise I don’t manage to pass thé « wave » of enemies who come all at thé same time (« Line «  of monsters, planes, birds) ... it almost doesn’t let à single place to avoid all of them, so ...

The more bells you collect more points you get, it increases exponentially. First bell gives 500 points, second will give 1000, then 5000 then etc... I dont remember the exact values but its something like that. I will try it next week probably also :)

Ah it increases exponentialy ? Ok, so perhaps I could try to do a série or Yellow after thé first grey Bell... Perhaps I could increase a little my score like this, but to havé enough bells to increase significatively thé score, I suppose this néeds to go far in thé level ... knowing That already, When using bells of other colors (so I was better equiped) I died early, without thèse bonus ...
So, I have still Time before thé End of thé month but I think it will Still be tough to improve my score ...

^Just realized that game can be pretty easily cheesed. I could probably get around 400k, but eh. Might not be the best game to use for a high score thing. Admittedly, this is the first month I have noticed/participated in this so not sure if I'm out of line for mentioning it.

"Just realized that game can be pretty easily cheesed. I could probably get around 400k, but eh. Might not be the best game to use for a high score thing."

Can you DM me with some more info? If the leaderboard itself is faulty I will definitely look into fixing it, but if it's more of a quirk for the game itself it can be seen as part of the challenge to find out how to exploit it.

"Admittedly, this is the first month I have noticed/participated in this so not sure if I'm out of line for mentioning it."

You don't have to worry about that, I'm always going to appreciate being told about any issue that comes up.

The leaderboard code isn't faulty apparently. As far as I noticed you can earn more points by other means other than completing the game and I think it don't spoil the challenge since you need to find the better way to reach a higher score.

Sure, I can DM you. No problem with the leaderboard itself, so maybe it's alright? Unsure, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

So I didn't hear back yet, so figured I'd see how high the score can go. Leaderboard attempt got canceled out at 500k :P 600k is the highest I could get, but a few optimizations could make it a bit higher.

EDIT: and I do think it spoils the fun a bit @Hotscrock, but as I said I have no frame of reference since this is the first I've been a part of this.

Games have exploits, learning those exploits is just part of getting a good score.

It feels like more of a glitch tbh. Then could you make the leaderboard cap higher than 500k?

I went ahead and fixed that portion of the leaderboard, it should be safe to max out the score now.
