yes

so close!

do you know if the scoring is the same on hard mode?

I wonder if the top score here (which was done on hard mode) is fair.  usually I think it's fine to play on a harder setting, but if that means you get more points for everything...

and considering you got basically to the end, I'm not sure how one doubles your score.

(i guess it could be like Double Dragon where certain moves are worth more points.)

There’s an entry for hard and harder on this, Jesses score should be moved. It can’t be matched on normal mode, can only be maxed in hard or hardest mode. 

End of level bonuses give 10,000 on normal, 20,000 on hard and 30,000 on hardest, that will make you come up short on normal mode. Also I didn’t actually get to the end but the thing to do is when the end of game boss asks you to join his gang say “yes”, it’ll dump you back to the start of level 6 and you have to get back to the end again along with all the points that come with it. Must be done on at least hard mode in order to max the score though

The actual defeating of  enemies throughout the game doesn’t score different on normal, hard, hardest and there doesn’t seem to be more enemies they are just faster at punching you. The game doesn’t score punches landed like final fight does either; which means scores could easily match if you die in the same spot, I matched my current submitted score today on an attempt, died at the blaze twins and had the same score

@derek:

huh.  that's kinda lame scoring   8/

thanks for the info.  I'll add that to the list of stuff to throw at Serious.  We might also ask Jesse to replace his own in the meantime and re-submit that one under the right setting.

Score more by joining the gang!  LOL

I assume this is fair play & can only be done once?

@S.BAZ:

Yeah only once; there’s a bonus for the time remaining after each level which would differentiate scores somewhat but not by a whole lot
