I screen captured this right before killing the end boss because after that the credits roll and the game starts over again while your score continues to add up. I didn't know if the parameters for the score on this game were for one run through the game or if multiple runs through without having to use a continue were allowed. So, I took the safe route and went for a one run score.

good question --> which way is best - to make the default game mean playing only to the ending, & then set it up as an extended play or marathon variation if you want to go beyond? --OR allow extended play under this heading and make a "once through only" variation to have your score ranked that way?? I think it's as you say, since you're the one who has started it off! but it would be smart to have a set standard, lots of games do that.

Personally, I think as long as you don't break any of the rules set you should be allowed to to play for as long as you want

you should of continued to play, you should just mention that you completed the game and the game rolls over to the first stage, as long as no cheats or continues were used I would of called it legal.

Continued play counts, I know thats how Twin Galaxies does theirs when I was trying to get the NES Jackal record. It only makes sense imo

It's rather easy to accrue extra lives in this game, especially since I can play through the game all the way through without dying and via the usage of the bonus stages.
