PacWhiz - galaxian

Somewhere for the annoying and/or off-topic threads to go. Feel free to post about whatever, but abuse will still be dealt with, and possibly with more force. Especially pac-porno. ;)

definitely! his accuracy of shot is amazing. any game that requires accuracy of shot he should own.

he has WR on Lunar Lander also....another game that requires very accurate shooting.

I wonder if he has ever tried centipede/millipede type games. I'll ask him that next time we chat.
take his same great timing for shooting he should do great...although trackball coordination maybe isn't a skill he has developed(?).

I'm pretty sure Aart told me that he was once able to get around 600K on Centipede.

Hi guys,

Sry ppl, never saw this thread :( ... apologies.
Thx for congrats :wink:

Rick, the other game is "Lunar Rescue"! :P
Lunar Lander exists, but i have never played it (yet).
I do like shooter-games with trackballs, btw. My control wasn't that bad way back when, especially considering i was only 13 - but obviously nowhere in the vicinity of Don's level of control.

Don, you are correct, good memory - I don't remember my exact score on Centipede but it was in 1983 in Saudi Arabia, and it was over 650k. I always used the center tunnel method back then. My nickname was TNT (dynamite lol - nice one for Millipede). I remember that only one other guy, Jeff Norel, was better than me and scored close to 700k, beating my hiscore. After summer '84 I never saw or played Centipede again until FunSpot X in 2008. I can barely break 70k now lol :mrgreen:

Oh PS: I got a 1,987M on Galaxian at FunSpot XI too, but it wasn't recorded #-o :evil:
2 flag-rollovers and 540 flags in total :D lol
