You'll get it eventually. I haven't gotten this close to the score I posted ever again. My average game is closer to 2000-3500. I probably lucked out and didn't have any robots spawn close to me on that round, that's usually what gets me. It is almost like the game is thinking, "That player's doing too good, i'll fix him."

I think it is INTV's version of it, if not, it is extremely close. The basic gameplay is definitely there.

Someone voted "no" for "other" reasons, I'm not sure wht that means but using flash carts on actual systems has obviously been deemed legit for score submission purposes by this site long ago.

The score will not change of you select higher settings after finishing a game so video should be desired for higher difficulty setting score submissions.

Since this is easy setting, no video should be desired, but for normal or hard settings, video should be used because the score does not change if you change the settings.

I don't know if it is a glitch or intentional but the high score doesn't disappear when I start a new game. I turned off the 7800 and back on to reset the score to zero. I think if anyone ever submits a really high score video proof should be submitted for this game. 

I really enjoy this game. Those snowflakes get tricky in later stages, though.

Sorry I couldn't get a pic of the enttire arcade, it is extremely dark in there and lots of brats running wild in the place. 

It was nice to play an arcade version of this game, though the colors were off and the joystick felt unresponsive when going up and left. (The gameplay was still solid, the machine is probably ready to go to arcade heaven.) The game certainly seems harder than the 7800 version I'm used to playing.

I have a full SD card on my phone so I didn't start recording until I already surpassed the current record. Also, I wasn't prepared for filming so I just put the phone on my stomach while I played. 

I figured recording video was necessary since Xevious lacks a high score screen and you thus can't see the settings when you see the score.

@DakotaKid:

I just got lucky somewhat. On all the Atari Dig Dug games, I've learned that if I push the button towards the enemy as I push the fire button, let go of the joystick then push towards the enemy again while hitting the fire button again, I can inflate the enemies faster than if I just hold the direction button while continuously pressing the fire button. Of course, this is harder to pull off on these Atari 5200 controllers since they aren't self centering. But when it does work, I'm able to kill up to 3 enemies coming at a tunnel towards me. 

This game is good, the only problem with it that makes it inferior to the other version is that you can't drop rocks on the monsters as they're passing through the ground. That fact killed me early in the game. I was down to my last life at 30k, thus, I'm really fortunate to have gotten into a groove.

I could have went for a,million but I was getting tired, and besides, no one had posted a score. Easy mode is indeed easy. It should be noted that if you move the joystick to select your difficulty the high score does not disappear. Thus, on the higher difficulty settings video evidence should be preferable to pics alone.

Just an FYI, there is no way to game the system. If you move the joystick on the difficulty select screen your high score disappears. I had a higher score than this but accidentally hit the joystick while aiming the camera and the high score went away. I just wanted to submit a score for the settings no one else has submitted.

Most of you that have been here a while are tight knit, so here's an idea, maybe when some folks who come and regularly post proven scores, they can reach a level where you would need a higher number of bad votes to have a score rejected. Just a though. 

I've been here a year, and quite frankly, when I see some folks who've been here when I first arrived and are regular, trusted posters, I do get lazy and just auto-vote yes. 

Seems to me most of the fake score problems revolve around phone games or that Google Image Breakout game

It is hard to capture the score on this handheld. It does not keep high scores and as soon as you die it goes straight to a game over screen. Thankfully the button pauses the game so as soon as you die, push the pause button. This version is extremely hard.

This game jumps in difficulty real quickly. It seems once you hit 35k, centipede drinks some Red Bull. I was lucky enough to have a funnel to kill the Centipedes before hitting 35k. If someone beats this score, I'd never be able to do it again.

In regards to Desert Falcon, you kill the Sphinx by getting a direct hit on the face. I think it only takes one hit but if you aren't quick and lined up just right and do it before it starts spitting enemies or bullets, then it is difficult. 

There is a Heiroglyph combo to kill the Sphinx but I misplaced my notes,, and I'm not sure if the Hlyph combos are the same on other versions, I've always played the 7800 version.

Mouse Trap is actually way harder to play on those discs. It is hard to stop the mouse when it needs to turn down a different path, so I learned to just tap the disc (the "mouse pad"?) to make it move one space. 

This version has red, white, and blue doors and 1,2,3 control the doors in the order I mentioned the colors, which I thought was interesting. 

Would you believe this is actually my first time playing?

It is pretty much a hack of Venture but it does capture thhe essence of Wolfenstein. There is even a secret ninth level and if you can beat it, i'm sure you could crack even this high score.

Controllers do make a difference. I just ordered an Edladdin controller so hopefully I'll have it soon. 

I did flip the score on Pac-Man but the game setting was 5, not 6, so I'm waiting for the powers that be here to add that category so I can post it. I wasn't expecting to flip the score but I was talking on the phone with someone and just kind of gotten into a groove. I figured out a pattern for the fast moving Pac Man. 

Maybe soon I can develop a pattern for slow moving pacman since the ghosts eventually outrun Pac-Man.

Well I've been playing a lot of PS4 games lately, ones that lack scores, like Uncharted 4, Doom, Dragon Quest, etc. 

I'm so close to completing my 7800 collection, missing just Ninja Golf and Tank Command as far as first generation NTSC games go. I'm also waiting on AtariAge to release those new 7800 games they've been tempting me with. I just got some new homebrews and waiting on whoever is in charge here to add new gams to the high score list (I have a copy of Conjoined for the 2600 so I can hopefully be the first to post a score, LOL). 

I pop in every couple of weeks when I'm not busy and catch up on voting. I've just been really busy lately.

It took a lot to finally get to get this sucker to work. First, I had to get a ono-to-stereo headphone jack so it would connect to a modern device. I only had a 7800 so I acquired a 2600 Jr, but the screen looked really fuzzy, so I got a regular 2600 (I traded some PS3 and Wii games in plus some cash for a "promotional use only" 2600). I had some of the actual cassettes, but no cassette player, so i went online and I found "Stella Gets a New Brain," but the mp3s wouldn't work, so I used an online mp3 to WAV converted and it allowed me to change stereo to mono sound, and now it plays great. What a pain the the you-know-what. At any rate, i'll be posting some Starpath scores. This was my first crack at this game.

Master the elbow, stand slightly below the topmost enemy, hit them when they get within range, and as soon as they drop, move in and time another elbow. Once you get the timing down, taking out any enemy is easy. On the downside, if you mess up even once, you could get beat up even by Linda. 

If you move diagonally away from a knife thrower you can avoid the knife. Same with Abobos throwing drums. 

I may get around to posting a video of me actually beating the game. I hadn't played in in 25 years and this was my first crack at it. But I have work to do so I'll not be posting much for a while.

Next time, maybe. Where I went wrong is I had a few occasions where I got sloppy and started losing lives. The level marker ends at 125, so i'll have to go back and count the number of successful level finishes to know just how many more levels there are. I'm guessing 255 just like in pac Man. I could be wrong though.

What I noticed about this game is if you pass all the levels A-Z, it bumps you up to the next level. Once I got to the later stages of Advanced mode I really started to struggle. 

This wasn't a game I saw as a kid but I would have enjoyed it if I did. But since I already spent 2 hors on it on  different mode I didn't want to invest half the night in it becuse this is one game you have to record to prove your score, because when I went A-Z in standard mode mode and died halfway through the second run, the title screen said i was on "Advanced mode" even though I had played in standard, so I assume the game just bumped me up after clearing all the levels. 

Considering the 7800 cartridge's limittions it is still an impressive game.

There are a couple of things I need to mention with my score submission. 

First, my phone decides it will only record for a maximum of 60 minutes, so I had to pause the game, upload the video to my laptop, then delete the video from my phone, and start up recording again. 

Second, I had been playing through standard level, and I made it through all 26 stages and made it to Level "P" on the second runthrough before I finally died. Oddly, when it went back to the title screen, it says "advanced" rather than "standard." Apparently, if you make it through all 26 stages, the game moves you up to the next difficulty level automatically. That is weird. Thus, I had to post the entire run so you could see that for yourself.

I don't know if this is part of the game itself or just a glitch, but I was playing this game waaaay better than usual. i actually beat a boss for once and made it very far into the game. About 25 minutes into the game, my three extra lives went to zero. Obviously, I was too busy dodging aliens to notice, so when I died, I got a game over instead of getting another life. I'm disappointed that I made it so far only to lose all my lives unexpectedly. 

I apologize for the crap video but it shows up great on my Nokia Windows 8 phone and I can see it plain as day. Right around the time I hit 475,000 points, my lives went from 3 to 0.

I'm not sure if it has anything to do with what kind of 7800 you have. Mine isn't the oldest 7800, the one that can play Robot Tank. Maybe they can't handle a Genesis controller? Just a guess. I've been using an Edladdin Genesis-to-7800 adapter so the C button runs the right fire button and the B button runs the left fire button. 

I had an off-brand Genesis pad that didn't work. The one I use is a standard official Genesis pad. I use it mostly to preserve the authentic 7800 controllers I have. I didn't want to ruin them playing the Atari olympic games.

Thank you. I learned a trick or two other than that spin kick spam move to make the game just a little easier. It is a little hard for me to explain, but i'll try, for those who want to play this game later. 

If you move your character up and down the enemies will match you by moving up and down, but eventually, one of the enemy fighters will slowly move up slightly then walk around behind you. While they are walking slowly past you, you can walk up and kick the daylights out of them. It works on everyone, even Abobo and Willy. It even works in the narrow walkways. 

I was aware of the "knife trick" (hold the knife and your kicks become as powerful as the knife) and I did utilize that on the first part of Mission 3. 

i've seen others successfully pull off the spin kick spam trick on other videos but I'm not great with diagonals on the Genesis game pad (to preserve my controllers, I use a Genesis D-pad with an Edladdin Seagull 78 Controller Adapter, that thing is awesome) to play my Atari. 

I don't know if the difficulty switches impact gameplay any but I always keep both to the left. 

This was actually my first time beating it. I think it took me 20 tries to get the patterns down right. Last time, Willy shot me and I was barely 1000 points from beating the score. Ouch.
