I just got a high score of 1.3 mil.

Got 1.3 mil the other day. Earlier I could have gone way longer because I was trying to see how far I could go without using bombs and I scored 900,000. I don't use the circle pattern anymore. I now use a figure 8 followed by quick left/right cuts for the jacks. I'll be back for more soon, as I need 50 more points from this game.

My top is 130,000. Only got the 360 a few days ago though, so im doing pretty well.

Wheres k4rn4ge when u need him, i think it said 33 million tongue.gif.

Those little red goons that look like u and follow u are annoying, and i always seem to miss the little broken bits of the pink guys.

Awesome game though!

Bar none, the snakes are the worst.

All I need is to survive a mill (ohmy.gif) and the 10x achievy.

How the hell are you guys pulling off 1m+ scores? My highest was 288,000 and I thought I was getting freakin gnarly on that run.

same here metal, got my mil+ score a few days ago... the game's weird though, i spent a while only being able to survive 100,000, then it crept up to the 250,000 and i could do that every time, then 500,000... the achievements are really well placed as youll just everntually get to that level where you can do them fairly regularly, almost every time.. i thought the 9 lives and 9 bombs would be impossible, but i get those achievements all the damn time now...

Me, too. When I got the "Survive 500k", it gave me the 9 lives at the same time. The 9 bombs was the hardest for me because I have an itchy trigger finger.

after i broke 1 mil i haven't really played the game since. the last time i played i got to 400k and handed the control to my friend cause he was claiming if he could start at 400k he could get to a million. that was fun to watch and he only ended up at 430k smile.gif after i complete some of the other games i've bought (GRAW, Burnout Revenge, etc) i'm going to go back to geometry wars and go for the 2 mil+ mark smile.gif

my highest is ike 980,000... to those with low scores, there is a "key" to this game... its basically u have to know when to engage and when to run and get chased... its a delicate balance btweeen the two... make circles around the board while doing this... DO NOT go from the corner to the center, u WILL die... save bombs but dont be too cautious with em, cuz u can lose the potential multipliers

There are times when I play where my ship goes through the tiniest of crevices. I mean, there are tons of enemies on screen and I try to guide my ship out of harm's way and I manage to sneak through pixel-thin spaces. Those were times I was sure I was dead. Those are movie moments right there. Whew!

Thanks for the news, lost. Now I know that when I survive 1 mill that I'll get the x10 at the same time. biggrin.gif

I finally made it yesterday..... barely..... 1'000,105, I thought i will get there easy when had 925k and 4 lives and 3 bombs left... but then I died, died again..... and again.... and barelly got to the millionaires club....
now I only have 3 achievements left, 10x multiplier, 9bombs and survive 1mill, which of those is the easist to be my next target, i know survive 1mil its almost impossible, but at what score without dieing should I reach the 10x multiplier(about 800k??), and the 9bombs I have to get to 600k without using a bomb, that has to be really though also.....
