81560If you continue the game for long enough without dying, certain enemies will release a pickup that gives an increasing amount of points each time one is collected. The highest value possible is 81560, which it not an arbitrary number; reading "8156" a certain way in Japanese would result in E-I-KO-MU, or "Aicom", which is the name of the Sammy studio that developed the game. This number also turns up in Blazing Star, another shooter produced by Aicom.
Saturn versionA SEGA Saturn version was in development, but was ultimately cancelled.
