Impressive. I had a go last night at Banshee and only got in the 5500 range. Still got a way to go to get to your level.

Not giving up though. Used to be good at shoot-em ups - I guess I am getting older!

Hi Epsilon,
Takes a bit to learn the waves and what upgrades to grab when.  Persist and you'll get there!

Had a good go at Banshee tonight. After the subs is much harder as mentioned!

Best score was 8087. Had to stop as my hand was getting sore playing it!
