Cheater on the leaderboard?

There's one guy with score of 37k on the first level while everyone else hovers around 9.2k. I don't think it's possible to get that good score. He has same kind of scores on other levels as well.

He might have found an exploit, though I am not sure where/how.

What's his name and which game mode?

I dont think his scores are that far fetched as to be cheating. It is possible to earn bigger scores by killing enemies as close to their base as possible and killing many at a time to lift the score multiplier.

The easiest way to do that is click on the wave indicator while its counting down between waves to send in the next wave early allowing for more enemies grouped together, making score multipliers much easier to obtain if you have enough firepower to focus on them.

Use a bunch of Mortar guys as they leave stacks of shrapnel around for enemies to kill themselves on.

Give it a try and see how your scores go.

There is a more strategy in Cubemen than first meets the eye :-)

Hmm, this Rossald guy has exactly 1.000.000 on the wall endless now and 37.000 and something on all other levels he "played".
I think you should take a closer look at him.

37000 is nowhere near possible

About to submit my insane, one million + score. See screenshot. Mike, the medic, always being the goose, and (pictured) there is a foe off square shooting my cubemen but they aren't targeting it. Lazlo are not worth your cubes and its sfx often is stuck on a loop (bug) and this cannot be muted (in-game). Grill rush spawn camping works when it works, game almost plays itself. I can alt+tab, requiring my attention every minute or so for upkeep. Rossald guy probably thinking, that's that...

Gonna let them overrun me now... and that's that.

I think he meant the endless score was exactly one mil. Not the score itself since endless is broken right now.

Someone has 901430 on the arrow level classic

Shame to see this game getting hacked but I guess it's inevitable with every pc title that has leaderboards.

I've blocked his score. I would love to know how they are doing it :-)

There just ardent enough men being spanned to earn such scores.

I can't figure it out either, could it be something to do with how you are sending the data to the highscores server maybe? They could potentially be sending false data or maybe editing their save file or something?

ahh, this reminds me of retribution multiplayer. The leaderboards Once upon a far away time filled with great warriors, now filled with hackers ignored by Relic.
