Hi!

I decided to play Space Manbow one more time and record my hi-score! I didnt use any continue and was ONLY killed 4 or 5 times in level 5. Level 5 is, according to me, the trickiest level where experience turns out to be an usefull ally.

anyway, check the proof. (NO! i didn't mess with the score!)

BTW: picture is on my personal server. it's down during the night so try again later if you dont see a thing.

Shouldn't your hi-score be even higher as you haven't died yet according to the screenshot?

even higher?? thats possible, i could continue with level 1 after the enddemo. i wonder, how many times can space manbow be finished without a single game over??? that would give a HUGE score..

i should try that once Wink

stage 7, in the beginning i considered that a very difficult level too. but if i "fly" (love that word Tongue) a
certain path, it's a lot easier. in stage 5 i MUST use my cursors very much. especially in the
horizontal direction to avoid those MARKforsaken planes that come from behind!

if there will be a Space Manbow contest someday, i will participate without hesitation!

it's a magnificent game with a difficulty that adjusts to your strength. eeh, well... the more options
you have, the more difficult it becomes. This is very strange sometimes. IF i reach stage 9 at full
power (as usual), the boss is much more difficult. Get killed, and the boss can be finished without a struggle.

LOL!! but beware, just before i went to school i started to play again and paused in the final level (after 18 minutes). guess what, this is my FIRST time to reach the end WITHOUT being killed a SINGLE time!! i'll continue after the enddemo and crush every known score Wink

btw: ro, you should have messed a little bit more with the screenshot Big smile

And another point is decreased from your score for badly compressing the image as a jpg of 86 kB (and that for a lossy filetype), while the original png is a mere 22 kB, lossless compressed...

And ANOTHER point for the fact that the Hi-score is actually lower than the current score, which is impossible.

yes yes, but now... i promised to continue gaming when i came home.. well, i finished Space Manbow WITHOUT being killed a single time. after the demo, the game starts again with terrible difficulty. I had 14 lives to waste in the beginning of the 2nd stage 1. I ended up wasting all my lives in the beginning of stage 4!!

BAH BAH BAH!!! but i got another hi-score. But because i couldnt pause anymore after being killed for the last time, i have no screenshot. And i don't remember the score exactly but, ALL numbers where used to it was above 10 million points!!!!!

i wonder, is there anyone that managed to finished the game twice in a row????

edit: in addition to MrRudi, it's also not possible to gain 1 point. Tongue
