Aha! Mr The Rev is DEFEATORIZED on the Centipede score table! Only just, though. My new score of 32,000-ish also puts me 81st in the world. Which isn’t too shabby.
Had a go on “Throttle Monkey” mode then, which is basically the same, only you need 15,000 points to get an extra life instead of 12,000. Oh, and the game plays 6000% faster, making my score of 5,600 hard fought.
Things did not go well for me on Millipede either. I managed to beat my previous score, but sadly not The Rev’s. I did get an achievement for having three lives ‘in hand’ though.
