  • How to unlock HI SCORE MODE 1500,000 points

    To get to 1.5 million points, you will need to get either a really long way through the game on three lives, or ace the first two levels. If you manage to get the maximum amount of bonus on these early levels, you will be around 1.4 million and only have to play through a small chunk of the third level to get this one.

    The key to big scores is finishing the levels with all POWs rescued and finishing in a vehicle. However, if you die, you lose all collected POWs, so you need to finish the level without dying.

    The first level isn’t too bad, most of the POWs are in plain sight. The final three will fall out of the end of level boss. As soon as you see them, dart to the right to get them before they exit the screen. Keeping your tank (or camel if you went for that) alive is probably the toughest part of this level as it’s size makes it tough to dodge the projectiles the boss fires at you. You will get way more points if you just use your  attack, but don’t be afraid to hit him with a few s if you feel the need. If you manage to perfect this level, you will get a bonus of 540k, leaving you between 800k-1M points.

    Level 2 is much tougher than the first, due to angled walkways making straight shooting harder, and mummies than turn you into a mummy if they hit you with their bad breath. You will also have bats carrying purple goo that turns you into a mummy if it hits you. There are also a few annoying platform jumps that can catch you out. The mummies are more out in the open in this level. The only missable one really is in the tunnel entrance where you first see the mummies. Walk in, shoot, and he will be released and rescued. When you get to the boss, just keep on jumping up and shooting down and he will go down quickly. Make sure you stay to the right or left when you see him charging his big shot, although you may have him beat before he manages to let it off. By the end of this level, you should be just short of the 1.5 million needed, so just play through the first part of the next level and you should hit it.

    Getting these two levels done perfectly will likely take you many tries, but the levels are only short so are quite easy to learn. Keep on trying, you will get there!
