Sometimes the replay files don't play correctly. I just watched it and a part of it went out of sync. But most of the time it should play fine. The end result should've been 1.5 mil and a max chain of 101.
Light doesn't have the time delayed blocks, and has a far easier boss. I think even with quickens it's slower, aswell. Also, there's a far, far shorter range between getting Extends so you can waste a lot of bombs.
Heavy has a hell of a lot more blocks, time delay blocks, and a large gap between extends so you have to preserve a lot.
One more thing.
I believe that brings me and TandeM to joint first.
Didn't realize the Judge gives up more points in Version 2 (item drops after 'Colosseum' can be picked up, plus one freebie attack after that).
2,643,690 / 83 max chain on my first try. Note that I botched the chance to get another 20 seconds in extends right before the boss, and had a fairly pitiful last attack. Could've had 3 million if I hadn't made those mistakes.

TUMIKI Fighters is awesome...basically when you blow up enemies they stick to you and provide shielding/power ups... Parsec 47 is an infinitely-generated shooter, same as rRootage... and one of those is a Java-based shooter. Get 'em all, they're generally high quality. This guy is a known shmups legend.
