Hello.

Im absolutely loving this game. Pacifism is extremely frustrating, but ive managed 43 million on it so far. Can't really remember my others, but I think my deadline score is roughly 14 Million.

I like how I can see all the friends leaderboards when you start the game.

Is it just me or is the Waves mode quite astonishingly hard?

Deadline score now 20,000,000+, but I haven't managed to do much better on any of the other modes.

Waves, without question, is the hardest mode. Although I think I'm playing it wrong!

Don't die at all.
Use the gates and the black holes.

Here are a few techniques I've picked up which might help a bit (I can fairly reliably score in the mid-teen millions... I'd be interested to know how you get on with them!)

1) Get a big load of greens, blues and pinks to follow you rather than shooting them. You'll score more for them by destroying them by running through a gate or in the wake of a black hole going boom - especially in the last minute or so.

2) Try and save the gates and black holes until you're in the sub 2 minute stage of the game as again these score more when you're multiplier is up.

3) The rebound shots don't seem to score more than ordinary shots, but do have the nasty effect of leaving areas of the screen infested with lots of those small pink nasties. I tend to avoid rebounding on purpose.

4) Big circles around the screen seems to be an effective strategy, but also mix it up with smaller circles in the four corners of the screen.

5) Try not to die twice in quick succession. This seems to have the effect of emptying the screen of enemies for a good 20 seconds or so, and then it becomes almost impossible to get a really big score. Also, if you can, avoid dying in the last 60 seconds.

6) Using two bombs in quick succession seems to have a similar effect to dying twice in quick succession. You can use one in the last 60 seconds though without causing too much re-spawn delay.

7) If you have a large amount of critters following you and there are no gates or black-holes, or you don't think you'll get to either use a bomb - make sure to pick up all of the Geons as this can really boost your multiplier (sometimes by 100 or more)

8) The rest is just ducking, weaving and diving - and with your score on pacifism I'm sure you're much better at this than me!
