With the new update, the scoring system has changed. My high scores are 32200 pts for Survival mode, and 520 beats for Speedrun mode!

Really rad! Took me until my second run to work out how to use the sprayer but fun once I got that hang of it. What's the dev high score??

Glad you liked it! I managed to get to 4 stars in my score, although I don't remember the exact number. (You get your first star at 4000 points!)
