** SaberX85’s score was not uploaded to the PS4 (NA) survival 1-player leaderboard due to an issue which we are looking into. They have provided enough evidence, in the form of videos and screenshots, showing that they have achieved the score. Here you can watch SaberX85 achieving the score of ‘395180’. If anybody else experiences similar problems with the leaderboards please let us know via a DM on Twitter or using our contact form.

- Can I enter a score I got before the competition started?
Yes – Simply screenshot the score in the leaderboard and Tweet the image with @SMSpaceBlaster, @bareknuckledev and #SMSBSp included (We will know which score is yours because it will be green in the leaderboard image).
- Can I enter a score if I beat my current score?
Yes – You can enter as many scores as you like but only your highest will count.
- Can I enter scores from multiple platforms?
Yes – Only the highest score will count.
- Can I enter a score from 2 player co-op?
No – All scores must be from 1 player Survival mode.
- I can see higher scores on the leaderboards on Switch/Xbox/PS4/Steam but they are not in the challenge leaderboard here, why?
Scores must be submitted via a screenshot and a Tweet to be registered into the challenge. The only leaderboard that counts with respect to challenge winners is the one here.
- Can I use upgrades I have bought in the shop and mini-shop?
Yes – We recommend unlocking everything in the shop and purchasing a shield, protectors and an extra big-bomb from the mini-shop when trying to get your high-score. If you have to choose just one upgrade make sure it is the ‘warp-engines’ upgrade which makes play much easier by removing the lethal screen-edges.
- Why did you choose Survival mode?
The mode was decided by our followers on Twitter via a Twitter vote which you can view here. Save the Colony mode was not included in the vote because it is not an infinite mode.
- Save the Colony mode is my favourite why can’t you do a high-score competition for this mode?
Save the Colony mode is not an infinite mode meaning once the boss is defeated and all 33 survivors saved there is little scope for getting higher scores. Protect Mother mode and Survival mode are infinite modes and allow the player to continue playing until they are destroyed.
- I don’t have a Twitter/don’t want to post this on my Twitter can I still enter?
Yes – Join our mailing list here and you will receive instructions on alternative methods of entry. If you don’t want to join the mailing list and don’t have a Twitter it is free to join and simple to set up, just follow this link: https://twitter.com/.
- If I am a winner how will I get my prize?
We will DM the winners on Twitter asking for details of currency and platform of their digital voucher or platform and region of their copy of the game. If you applied through our mailing list you will be emailed.
Hope you enjoy the challenge, good luck, stay safe, and happy blasting!
