I've noticed that it's pretty easy in the first level to crack 10k cash in the first level if you're trying, and I'm pretty sure once I got 18,900 (including the idol).
It seems like you could easily crack 20k if you were willing to use up all your bombs and got lucky, and the first level is ideal because you have infinite time to strategize. If you managed to get specs and bombs from a store on the first level maybe that could be an even better haul.
So, I propose a competition (for honor only) for whoever can get the highest score by the 1st to 2nd level transition screen and get a screenshot. No additional credit for a damsel, this is cash only.MONTHS LATER:
This competition was successful beyond my wildest expectations. I was sure someone would crack 20k, but had NO idea people would eventually crack 60k. Thanks to everyone for taking this fun challenge so seriously, and a huge thank you to arucard who made 6 amazing custom trophies for the winners.TROPHY CASE / LEADERBOARD
Ok, for those who don't want to read the whole thread, the current winner is orange08 with the the unbelievable score of 61,900.
Since we want normal people to have a crack at the challenge, we decided to have two leaderboards, Legendary
for over 40k, and Mortal
for over 30k.
So, I present you the leaderboard:LEGENDARY! (Over 40k)
1. orange08 - 61,900
2. DialFforFunky - 53,000
3. pp128 - 50,800MORTAL! (Over 30k)
1. cjfoster takes home "The Gold Homey" for 38,900:
2. pp128 snags "The Silver Damsel" with 35,500
3. And damsel, who I'd love to see with the silver damsel, gets "The Bronze Dude" with a still damn impressive (seriously, try it yourself) 34,900
