I've looked at this thread a few times and have decided to give the 3 tips that wll have you to 1,000,000 in no time.

1. Fire in front of you, but not only that, strafe the fire as if you were the Terminator. This way you control an area in front of you.

2. Circle. The reason I state this is because the "enemy ships" as I call them (the red things that actually fire) travel in a straight line. This way you can avoid them untll you shoot them or they get sucked into a black hole.

3. Use bombs often. The multiplier only stays with the life you started it with. This means that the longer you stay alive, the easier it will be to earn a high score. You will find that earning enough points to get new bombs will be easier when you have a high multiplier. Using bombs, as oppose to dying and wasting a ship, makes all the achievements easier to accomplish.

Heartbreaking failure.

I hit 900K last night and died. Almost unlocked survive one million. Pulled the trigger to launch a bomb, and nothing. I then fly right into a little blue ball from one of th 7 exploding black holes on the screen.

Worst part is that I didn't get enough jack spawns to crank my multiplier up to x10. I was on x9 forever.

Ah well, at least I hit my new high score of 1.34mil. . .

Ive thought it was immpossible to do the surviving 1 mill but i guess if you time your bombs right and use them when you need to then it would be possible. I always seem to get hit on the dumbest possible places. I wish some of the arcade game achievements were worth more though.

Just remember that when you get to the point where you are going for survived one million, you can use one bomb every 76,000 to make it.

by collecting 9 lives/bombs, do they mean not dying/using bombs as well?

For the 9 lives you cant die, but for the bombs you can die all you want.

umm... you said you got 1mil points and 9 lives in the same game, and you don't have the survived 1mil points, so i would assume that you can die with the 9 lives achievement as long as you get enough lives to cover it

i got this game off the arcade a few days ago and my best so far was 368,700 or something. Awesome game.

This game is rediculously crazy after smoking a bowl, all the blasting, fireworks, and floor swirling, I dont reccomend it though as your heartbeat goes to like 1 million beats a minute from all the adrenaline!

Wow, I hit the million mark this morning...I've been trying for weeks now and finally!!! 1.094 million smile.gif I'll take a break now...and I hate the snakes too...IMO those and the hundreds of purple jacks that come out later are the worst ones...game is crazy hard after a million, but addictive as all hell...

yea strikers video showed me to eliminate the BlackHoles immediately. Once i did that a million+ points came pretty easy.




Now surviving 500K-1mill is extrememly tough for me.





Geometry Wars + Marble Blast Ultra = Quality XBLA experience. I can completely see Geometry wars montages and whatnot.
