(...and this is all still running on a stock VCS? :)

Something I planned on doing in Reflex for scores that go over the 6-digit
display limit was adding some sort of indicator like 1m, 2m, etc. or even
just displaying tick marks indicating millions of points.

Depending on the point system in (not) BD, you might require something
similar.  If clearing a (not) dirt block gets you 1 point and clearing (not)
diamonds gets you 10 or so, that score can shoot up there pretty fast.
That's just the nature and the promise of (not) BD: White-knuckled,
high-scoring action.

Anyway, I'm sure you've not thought of this and I've completely blindsided
you with this new requirement.  Good luck getting past this one and try not
to get too discouraged. :)
