Played with Blaze and tried to maximize score on every enemy. Her suplex/throw both give 200 points and tried to kill every enemy with those moves while using punches for enemies with less health than a throw would do before throwing them.

Also farmed the final boss' minions and apparently they stop showing up after some time.

Also, by Stage 3 I realized the timer was important for points when the boss died, so I'd trake an intentional death right before kiling him to maximize points.

There is more points to be had as throws/suplexes would hit other enemies and kill them without giving me the 200 points for the move, though I don't know what the theoretical max score actually is for the game.

The score can be maxed on this game but I’m pretty sure only in hard or hardest mode. The end of level bonuses are higher in harder modes.

I had studied the scoring some in this back in December/January and had come to a conclusion that the time remaining at the end of each level had zero effect on the score, I could be wrong though

I also had thought the enemies only gave points per death instead of points per punch which makes the scoring somewhat simple. Oh yeah in order to max score at the final boss when you are asked to join his gang say yes, you’ll then be dumped back on level 5 or 6 which is how people max the score to 999,990

Really great score for Normal. I find Blaze to be the best for racking up points. Although I am not good using her in the harder difficulties.

Yeah it was a bit ago but I remember doing what I could to maximize the points on each enemy before killing them with a higher point attack. At least on the early levels when it was easier to do.
