Argh, just did a run ten feet short of yours, Colin. Right, let's go again!

EDIT: FFS, as soon as my Vita gets some more juice in it, that is. :lol:

Probably my final submission. I've been playing the hell out of this, it's a fantastic arcade game. So much more depth, no pun intended, that I originally thought.

4440ft : 165'960 points

Nice run Alex.

I haven't bettered mine and I'm even struggling to get past 3500m now, so I think I'll leave it there.
It actually plays really well even on the weak hardware. Its a nice port. Good fun.

Woo! Once I realised you can dig down faster than blocks can fall I started getting much better scores.

Sorry, wasn't able to compete. Played some more Truxton though and nearly reached the 200k mark!

So... because One Credit Ben stated his intention to play, technically that means Alex beat him... :D

The new game choice is in...

Lovely. I'm gonna try it myself later if I get chance. I love it when one of them picks a shmup and even better when I've never heard of it.

Sqoon looks cute. Might snatch up the cart when I see it. Being that it's from Irem, it's weird that there is no arcade version.

I feel that Sqoon has really left an impact on you Clippi.
