Allegedly, Gamest record is 765,800 points. I fail to see how such a hi-score might have been achieved (and I do have some knowledge of the game). The essential point is that there is a limited number of enemies which once killed do not rise again. Some leeching is possible in level 5 by jumping on the green rings (50 pts per jump!). Sacrificing your extra lives to raise the score would not do here, as you start again at a point very close to that where you died, so that you can only get a few more points. All hi-scores submitted at Marp are around 280k/310k. Maybe it's possible to do 350k but that would sill be half of Gamest score. For the record, an Italian mag of a few years ago reported a score of around 600k pts. So I'm wondering if there is some secret technique to get all those points.
