It's because he beats the levels insanely fast. I tried to do it that fast, but it wasn't gonna happen. I have to redo Valley of the Kings because of this.
And what are the things you added for the x65?

I have beaten the game with the x69 multiplier. I have beaten hatshepsut and The Great Pyramid with the x83. Especially because of the latter, I don't want to have to do it a THIRD time with x78.

I realised I was close to 900M. Once I hit that, I will stop playing, no matter how many people get ahead of me. So I'm done "competing" if you want to call it that. But believe me, I only did this because I was looking for a challenge from a game I've beaten a million times already. Adding personal difficulty was a great idea

(Metropolis still gives me nightmares. I had to figured out a way to get across that pit with only 4 health. Man I wish I could have made a demo)



But I think it's best to patch in the option "allow powerups?" so no one has to fight whether or not they should or shouldn't. And then the people who were cheap can't be cheap anymore if everyone can do it.
