|I see that score VH and I believe|

@applecorp I'm still a little fuzzy on this, sorry.
So, the keepers are unlocking their cells, but sometimes killing them, what circumstances cause this choice? When the computer says "keepers detected" is there a way of locating where? I keep missing them and then a human dies. What I don't understand is sometimes I don't seem to do anything and a human is released anyway?
I am streaming this now if anyone is interested, my distinctly average SHMUP skills! Really enjoyable though.

Ive got VHs hack scores on the leaderboard
Now sitting just below neilqpr on the high score table with just over 15 mil. Made some stupid mistakes on level 2 and lost three lives in the space of 2 minutes, otherwise I'd have probably been getting close to VH's score.
Using overdrive more is definitely the key to racking the scores up (and handy when the screen is full of hard gits like the ones you get on level 3 onwards - although it's then easy to hit keepers in the wrong order, thus killing a human).

Who on earth is VH?
We're not all part of your clique, y'know.

Has anyone added Fozzy_Frog (Froggit on here), currently top (of my Friends list) on Arcade I think with 80m+ if I recall.
Got lazy adding people from the tag thread, may have to add a few more.
27M... But that last level destroyed me quickly
I don't think the keepers are always in chains - if by that you mean following a marked-out line on the screen. Sometimes they're just grouped together, but always glowing green (or apparently red).

nop, what he means is that after the 1st level there are a few keepers in a round that must be hit in order. the first one being the one with the big green ring around it, the 2nd being the one that the ring moves to when you destroy the first.

For people looking to hit the really, really big scores on arcade, the key point in the run is the get to the cube boss on the third level with a nice multiplier active and an overdrive charged and ready to go. Shoot at it until it starts flashing red, then unleash your overdrive as it 'sheds its skin' (for want of a better term). Doing this you'll absolutely hammer the shell it leaves behind and it'll immediately spawn another one. You get some frankly unbelievable scores (30-40 million easily) from this one bit alone if you get it right.
also moving all your saved humans close to the save zone then dumping all 10 in (once you have them all free) one after another amasses huge bonuses, combined with a full multiplier and you are looking at a pretty large score.

Riiiiiight. Been doing it all wrong basically. Tutorials? Pfft!
Right everyone, prepare to die!

Tryed that 3rd boss thing, didn't seem to give me the points bonanza I was expecting, did get the 1cc trophy though so swings and roundabouts really.
