Thanks for adding the quotation marks. I was just about to tell you to go fuck yourself.

And of course there's nothing stopping you from adding a bounty of your own to sweeten the deal.

The quoatation marks made that clear...before that I wasn't sure.

Anyway, in light of testimony to the difficulty of the challenge, I will allow the usual 3 months in case someone who gives up less easily wants to work on it.

I think I'll leave the amount as it is, however. TG lists several people scoring over a million on the arcade machine, so I'm not completely convinced.

By the way, they list a score from 1983 in Ottumwa by a "Chad Horras". Did a young Skito visit Twin Galaxies long ago and get his name horribly misspelled, or is that a coincidence?

NOTE WELL: Until further notice all entries from this point forward MUST be uploaded to MARP in the traditional fashion.

It works. Really. I wouldn't kid you about a thing like that.

If you get an error, try again in 10 minutes. It will work. I swear.

The 1 million point scores could be from someone leeching big time on the easier levels.....

I've tried leeching the bats on the stair levels but they get fast enough where mistakes are going to happen, you can leech when the timer runs out going back and forth between room and room (something clearly destructor would enjoy doing) but i think this might even be too boring not getting a lot of points between leeching rooms and you still have a chance of getting caught by an earthquake lucky shot. but yeah it can be done, like leeching robotron brain fires...

I'm entitled to take a few shots at someone who always beats my scores :) but it's really just "respect" for someone who meticulously goes through all angles to maximize points.

The winning number is 9.

I assume you're at the same address as before, BBH.

And don't forget about the further bounty for finishing the game by November 30.
