Oui je me souviens, tu étais en feu !! Presque 1 million sans grande pratique en plus :)
Regarde la liste de score, quand tu voit SEV ce sont des scores fait au niveau de difficulté 7 et quand c'est TEN alors c'est niveau 10. Les meilleurs joueurs font 10 millions au niveau 10 ha ha, j'manque de pratique pour accomplir ca !

For those who are not familiar, wave 256 is the return to wave 1 because of the limitation of 8 bits system.
That's why you can see in the third picture a score of 6,887,625 and wave 1 at the bottom of the screen.
That was not a very good game for me, usually the score for this point is over 7,5 millions.
Usually the 10 millions mark is a formality when a player reach that level.
Here's a nice video about what is happening when someone reach that level after 2 hours of gameplay.

The key is to practicing everyday to keep the learning curve on the right way.
4-6 games a day and i'm pretty sure you will break the first million in 2 weeks on an original machine

On a mame configuration it's very different, most are not set-up correctly to play this game mostly because of wrong joysticks.
Also this game is harder on mame emulation depending how old the version is. Most recent mame versions are more accurate.
