Yes, it's a really low score, but it's a start!

I'll get better, but it's a start.

This one I got for free.  A friend's aunt and uncle wanted it out of their basement, and I gladly helped move it into my living room!  smiley

Target Alpha - 3 balls.  This is one in my personal collection.

Big Ben - 5 balls.  Not the best I've done, but the best I have a picture of.  This was my personal machine.  The first pinball I owned.

I have that same score on the real arcade.  It was my first time playing.  Decided to play on MAME thinking it would be cake to beat.  HA, the best I've done so far is 98K, but I will beat this score eventually!  smiley  Good job!

Yes, it's a very bad score, but until I have a bad score, I can't have a better score!  smiley

Should be an easy score to beat, but let's get the tracking started!

@derek:

So this was played with 4 balls instead of 3?  Assuming you got the replay/extra ball.

This machine was at my local arcade, Up-Down (http://updowndsm.com/) supplied by Des Moines Pinball (http://dsmpinball.com/).  It's in excellent condition, and has the color DMD upgrade.  It was hard to watch the game since I was watching the DMD so much.  smiley

Horrible score, I know, but it's a start.

Level 21?  DUDE!  Nice.  I'm typically only getting to 8 or 9.  Either I need to practice more or just give up.  smiley

This past time was my first time seeing either game as well.  This was fun, but I really enjoyed Space Zap!  Wow, for such a simple game, it was very intense!  It almost has me inspired enough to build a custom control panel for MAME for it.  I think playing on a keyboard or X-Arcade Tankstick wouldn't to the game justice.

Awesomely tense and fun game for having 4 simple direction buttons and fire.  smiley  I visited a private collector's collection today, and he had some real gems.  This was one of many wonderful games.

Bump N Jump - MAME.  I love this game.  Just wish I was better.

What do you use for recording your MAME sessions?  I've been trying to find something, and haven't found a great solution yet.  Nice game/score too!  smiley

I thought I was recording video for it, but I was wrong.  Next time, I promise.

Impressive.  I can't seem to get much past the first set or two of hostages.  Very well played.

What a fun game.  Takes 2 joysticks to play, but 2 it's a ton of fun!

We have a Burger Time down at the arcade I frequent, but it's currently out of rotation.  My wife likes the game too, so I'm thinking about making them an offer to buy it.  I know I can do better, but not too much better.  Challenge on and accepted!  :)

I own Junk Yard, Target Alpha, and Big Ben. But my local movie theater gets a lot of the latest games in, and our local arcade, http://updowndsm.com/, has 8 pins currently. Plus, I like to travel to pinball shows in various places like Denver and Chicago from time to time.

Congslop, it gives you a challenge to do better. If we're not challenged, we don't push ourselves to score higher. :)

Not sure why this is getting so many no votes. It's not the top score posted by anyone. It was one time through. I didn't complete the high jump, but made it to that stage and cleared 2 heights. Feel free to post any questions.

So, my 26,050 score is not the top on my machine, but the top that I've posted. 28,000 is the default high score on the game. With the iCade version I have, as soon as you start to enter initials, the game exits, which is why my initials are't entered, but you can see me starting to enter them.

I normally wouldn't call myself an AC/DC music fan, but playing this game, it's hard not to love their songs. I really love hitting the Hell's Bell and the train whistle from Crazy Train. Whoo whoo!

I'm the guy in the photo below AH. He has all of those high scores at our local arcade. It's legit.
