This coulda gone in the thread that Batt already started, but it is so momentous, it deserved its entirely own topic.
The giant has been toppled! The dragon, slain! After tinkering with Battalon's puzzle a bit, I actually matched his prior score, meaning that the high score board in fact did not need erased since all entries could be valid.
Well, if I could match six, could I top it? The answer: yes! I defeated Batt's puzzle in only five turns! I don't think any smaller score is even possible, and just in case it is, I shall gloat now about beating Draggy1234 before he turns around and manages to get a two-turn clearing of the puzzle! Calooh callay!

I admit, that puzzle seems hard to get a low score on, so I haven't beaten your score yet, MintMan. Oh well, enough time for tonight. Maybe I'll try some more tomorrow morning, or squeeze some more hours throughout the day...
By the way, Battalon, please don't change your puzzle. I'd like to try some more on it anyways, and at least have a chance to match the top score with the existing setup.
I wonder, though, will I be able to keep the top spot in all of the puzzles and survivals in the long going?

It would appear, then, that my plan was a success. That's right, what would appear to be merely a randomly thrown together puzzle is actually a carefully formulated Draggy-Killer.
By meticulously analyzing draggy's custom shots and scores on the high score board and simulating the process he must have used to achieve them, I have structured a puzzle that is impossible, utterly and completely impossible, for draggy to get the high score on. (*DIABOLICAL LAUGHTER)
Of course now that I've said all this, I'm sure draggy will take no time in proving my claims of draggy-proofity (which have absolutely no basis in anything, might I add) wrong. And don't worry drags, upon realizing the whole high-score impossiblity thing, I don't plan on changing the puzzle, especially now that it has been validated.
