Developer Initials


With the game set on 6 or 7, kill the Swirl in mid-flight and a flickering black line should appear along its Y-axis. Now, stand upon it and hold any vertical direction before the status screen appears. If done right, the letters "HSWWSH" will replace the score, which some know as referring to developer Howard Scott Warshaw.
