The challenge of scoring is limited for 3 reasons:

  • there is no real scoring system, the only way to get points is to defeat enemies;
  • the small insects generated by the red flying mid bosses can be milked indefinitely (100 points each);
  • the score is limited to 655.350 points (probably due to the variable stored on 2 octets).


GunLord is dynamic and there are some interesting techniques and skips. The use of cheat codes is forbidden when speedrunning. The in-game timer is used to time the runs.
