Now I have a copy of 2600 Asteroids. It's one of 2 cartridges which I won and chose by participating on all rounds of Atari Age 2600 HSC Season 2017. Space Invaders is another cartridge which I won and chose by winning the 2600 HSC Bonus Round, which was realized after the ending of regular rounds.
Settings adjusted to the following parameters on Blue MSX Emulator:
For this session I chose MSX as Machine Type.
Score at the ending of this video (33:18 mark).
Settings adjusted on Blue MSX Emulator in order to follow standard rules:
PLEASE, note that the speed of this MSX game decreases at the presence of too many objects on the screen (enemies and bombs) during this gameplay.
At the starting of video above, I showed the emulation speed.
For this session, I changed emulation speed to 120% just because the Video Frequency was adjusted to 50 Hz. For the next sessions of Blue MSX Emulator, I will adjust Video Frequency to 60 Hz and emulation speed to 100%.
Try the 7800 and 5200 versions of Ms. Pac-Man.
I'm very glad to see you back at Atari Age High Score Club, JIN. YES vote from me!
TOP 5 Rankings at the ending of 7800 HSC Season 2016-2017, which started with Ms. Pac-Man and ended with Asteroids / Asteroids Deluxe:
I vote NO on your score by excessive leeching.
I based on Twin Galaxies Reference Rules for NES GUN-NAC:
"There is a time limit of 1 minute to defeat easier bosses and 1 Minute and a half for more difficult bosses. This is to permit less experienced plays a fair chance to defeat the boss, and for all players alike, prevents leeching issues from arising."
According to my own consideration, the more difficult bosses are understand as the bosses which appear at the ending of each area / stage.
Thanks very much.

SOOOO CLOSE, CLOSE, CLOSE to the current world record for this game, platform and variarion!
Try again, man! You deserved my YES vote by your merit!
NOTE TO USERS BEFORE VOTING:
Right Difficulty Switch set to B due to COLOR FORMAT, which is NTSC.
I play Atari 2600 games on NTSC60 Format mostly, so attention for this!
The person who are voting NO on my last scores are being extremely COWARD!!
Thanks very much, man!
I used TANK's technique to achieve this astronomical score. Here is the extract from Atari Age 5200 Regular High Score Club Season 5 / Round 20:
"Heres what works for me--5200 pacman's monsters are the most vicious ghosts out of all pacman ports (in my opinion) so i think of it as survival pac man lol. The goal is to survive until the 7th key. The 5th key, the 7th key and beyond the ghost never turn back to normal once you eat a power pill. You can run your score till it turns over and beyond. From cherry up to 5th key Dont worry about racking up points,eating monsters or eating fruit or keys....Just get past each screen clearing all the dots the best you can while surviving the onslaught of the 5200 ghosts.(...) Dont be distracted by fruit and eating ghost for racking up points and you will make it eventually to that 7th key."
DON'T BE COWARD BY VOTING NO!
This is the worst score possible which I set for this 2600 game (and variation) since it will result on me winning one more FIRST TROPHY!
This is the lowest score which I posted for Atari Age 5200 HSC Season 10, Round 8. At my own discretion video is not necessary for low scores.

Many Atari games I'm playing on NTSC Format (Framerate 60 which is the standard in North America). In my country (Brazil), the standard Framerate is 60 FPS (frequency 60 Hz).
Note to users before voting NO and choosing Rules:
Although the rules say "Both difficulty switches must be set to A position", I had to set Right Difficulty switch to B position due to Color Format (the Oystron Cartridge opened on Stella Emulator is NTSC FORMAT), and I usually set to NTSC Color to play Atari 2600 games. To set both difficulty switches to A position, I have to change Color Format to PAL (European Standard).

Now I have a copy of Kangaroo for 2600, made in Brazil by POLYVOX in Silver Label (with the title "CANGURU" in Portuguese). I inserted this cartridge on my 7800 ProSystem Console to play a little, using my Edladdin Super 78 Joystick.
POLYVOX was a Gradiente subsidiary company which manufactured electronic equipments, including sound system (radio / cassette recorder / vinyl player) and Atari 2600 console.

I'm missing you!!
I tried to score more than my previous one (3,111), but because of my "mental blocking" (situations which I cannot avoid, like cheap deaths), I decided to concede the highest score to YOU at 2600 NEW HSC Season 6 / Week 13!

Framerate changed to 60 FPS on Stella Emulator although this game is on PAL Format. The framerates which I CAN USE for emulators in general are 50 and 60 FPS, which correspond to nominal frequencies (50/60 Hz, depending on the country / region of the world).

SOOOO CLOOOOSE to crack the TOP Worldwide score for this game and category, and earn the significant amount of bonus points therefore!
By looking at the graphics, you started at STRAWBERRY level.
Awesome score JIN!
Just to let you know, I play the original version of 2600 Centipede (1982) with the following controllers:
Try also GAME 16, Difficulty A on this game - it's more exciting!
Difficulty B on 2600 Asteroids makes this game more tedious due to the abscence of enemy ships. So, cracking the current TOP Worldwide score for this game, variation and category by a narrow margin is the best solution.
I want to see you playing 2600 Asteroids on Game 4, Difficulty A!
TOP 3 scores on Asteroids Game 4-AA, played at Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC Season 6, Weeks 5-6 (Arcade Space Shooters)
And one more challenge for you - crack some of my Missile Command scores, obtained from emulation and console.
Now, I want to see you trying the 1-life modes on 2600 Chopper Command. These variations were added on this site database!
And just to be honest - on recent Moon Patrol Contest for Atari Age 2600 High Score Club, I played on Medium Skill Level and set both Difficulty Switches to A POSITION on Stella (Music ON and 3 moving speeds).
On my Stella Emulator, the Difficulty Switches have the following effects:
The Right Difficulty switch on 2600 Moon Patrol MUST be set before pressing "Reset Game" button to start a new game.

For this submission, I considered the score immediately before 1 million. And to reach this score, I used Gleen Case's trick after I scored 150,000 points in order to kill the Swirl in mid-air easily. If you want to review Gleen Case's tricks for Yars' Revenge, check out his evidences:

Omargeddon, NEVER turn on your console without a cartridge in order to conserve your 2600 system.
Since you are an Atari Age High Score Club Moderator (7800 category) and your legit rating is low for this score submission, what you should do is to show your system used with identification paper on your console (at Atari Age HSC, idenfication is optional, BUT recommended). My suggestion is to write the following:
Your username (MisterVCS)
Your settings used (Game 1-AA in this case)
Your final score (15,260 in this case)
Fat Axl is similar to 2600 Fast Food. Fire button is used to start a game only.
Use the joystick to move Axl across the screen eating burgers, tacos, pizza, etc. Avoid Slash and poodles. As you progress, the message "You're getting fatter" will appear across the screen.
I won this 7800 cartridge together with my last prize - Edladdin Super 78 joystick, which can also be used on Atari 2600-VCS console.
Settings and respective scores noted on my identification paper.
Presence of Teddy Bear near the score proves it's GAME 2 (Easy Skill, 5-digit score).
Abscence of Teddy Bear near the score proves it's GAME 1 (Normal Skill as Default, 6-digit score).
Used a POLYVOX cartridge to play this Activision game.
Thanks very much for your positive considerations
(Muito obrigado por suas considerações positivas)
Added a photo of my Enduro cartridge (Silver Label, manufactured in Manaus, Brazil), with Activision signature.
Difficulty AA (HARDEST Skill - only 10 shots collected on 1st screen, fastest speed of evil chopping mummy on 2nd screen, lamp turned OFF and fast moving wall on screens 3 and 4, and fast Dracula chasing you)
Video attached at Atari Age Forums:

After I surpassed ED1475 score (103) for this variation, I decided to commit suicide immediately.
Looks like I surpassed S.BAZ by 1 POINT!
Omargeddon my friend - try Moon Patrol for the Atari 2600 (Difficulty A)
Try to crack all my scores on Activision Anthology for GBA Emulated!
Gameplay 1 - Medium and Difficulty BB (music OFF and 2 moving speeds), starts at 00:00 mark and game over at 04:28 mark, score 28,000 points
Gameplay 2 - Medium and Difficulty AA (music ON and 3 moving speeds), starts at 04:43 mark and game over at 11:47 mark, score 48,900 points
At my own discretion, video is necessary specially for scores which are enough to get 1st place World Ranking, or which are more difficult to someone reach. For scores which are easy to surpass (example - 4,000 points on Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Jr. Pac-Man for Arcade / MAME, normal difficulty), only picture is needed.
In some occasions, I'm forced to include statistical tables (details of gameplay which give extra clues for less experienced players) associated with gameply video footage. As an example, check out my 2-million Millipede score for 2600 emulated:
This score which I'm posting is just to pay tribute to Masaya Nakamura, who died on January 22nd, 2017. He was considered the "Pac-Man Dad".
I'm missing you, Adam!
Default game mode - NO options available on this 7800 game.
Fat Axl is the 7800 version of Fast Food. Score noted on my identification paper.
Statistical tables (details of gameplay recorded in the video above) included for this submission.
Yes vote from me. Laser Blast is boring and tedious at my own discretion.
I believe it's a troll. But what I want to say is each user is a fan of certain games. Omargeddon loves playing Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, and I am a great fan of Pac-Man triology (Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man and Jr. Pac-Man). I don't resist on playing Pac-Man games.
2 gameplays in the video above:
Gameplay 1 - Apple, starts at 00:00 mark and game over at 11:41 mark, score 100,000 points
Gameplay 2 - Pretzel, starts at 11:55 mark and game over at 22:55 mark, score 92,820 points
YES from me. You are a supreme fan of Mortal Kombat!
YES from me JES.
YES vote from me.
I beat your Spider Fighter score (GBA Activision Anthology) by an extremely narrow margin (40 points) just to let you play this game again and crack my worldwide trophy.
Because my intention is to reserve opportunities to other users crack my worldwide scores like this, and consequently accumulate more user points on this site. In the case of Game 4 / Difficulty B on this 2600 title, I decided to post a reduced score here because I was the first person to post score and it will result on winning my FIRST trophy.
What would I mean to preserve the integrity of this site?
Provide more detailed evidences showing the hardware / emulator used, game variations chosen, complete gameplay videos and, eventually, statistical tables for scores which are extremely difficult to reach.

NOTE FROM ME BEFORE VOTING: My best score obtained for Game 16-BB at Atari Age 2600 NEW High Score Club (Season 6, Week 1), with my console, is 219,580 by me (oyamafamily). In order to preserve the integrity of this site, I AVOIDED posting my best personal score here (I decided to set my new score which is between 60,000 and 70,000 points for this submission here). Please, check out the following URL:

OF NOTE (2): For 2600 NEW HSC, I set Atardi's current record as a goal to beat this (almost 210,000 points), and I reached this objective. My 77,930-point score which I posted (and obtained when I was trying to break Atardi's record) is exclusive for this site.
This is the first score submitted for this game, variation and category, so I avoided videos.
This score is just to give a chance to other users crack my worldwide trophy.
OF NOTE: Since this score will result on winning one more FIRST trophy for Missile Command Game 4-BB via console, I AVOIDED entering my 339,605-point score which was destinated for Atari Age 2600 NEW High Score Club, Season 6 / Week 1, and enough to break the current record (almost 210,000 points by Atardi). I entered my lower score than I was able to do this in order to save the integrity of this site.
Score not difficult to someone beat, so I avoided videos.
Surpassed Bernard Larquey's score by a margin of 40 POINTS!
Score to give a chance to other users crack my worldwide trophy.
Although we are playing Missile Command at Atari Age for the new season of 2600 High Score Club, this score is exclusive for this site.
Settings and the respective score noted on my identification paper.
BEFORE VOTING NO:
1) For this submission I set lower score in order to give an opportunity to other users crack my worldwide trophy. This score will result on winning one more FIRST trophy.
2) The score registered on TEAM PLAY variation is the GREEN one located at the TOP center of screen (the sum of left player and right player scores).
Settings and the respective scores noted on my identification paper.
Statistical tables included for this submission.
I'm not a fan of Animes. I prefer Tokusatsu.
My TOP favorite Japanese series are Jaspion and Changeman.
And when the subject is Japanese music, I like ENKA songs (Yashiro Aki, Kawanaka Miyuki, Takamine Mieko, Misora Hibari etc.)
Check out my 2600 Dark Chambers gameplay video, recorded in 2013.
In the video above, I entered the following levels of interest (to omargeddon kill the curiosity):
Y (first passage) - 24:43
Z (first passage) - 25:19 - After you complete Level Z on Standard Course (Medium Skill), you will return to Level H, but the difficulty will increase to Advanced
H (second passage, advanced course) - 26:51
Y (second passage, advanced course) - 46:55
Z (second passage, advanced course) - 47:25
Your clues convinced me to vote YES on your score!
Great job, mi amigo!
After I surpassed Gleen Sampson (gsampson35) score for this variation (241,800 points), I comitted suicide immediately in order to give an opportunity to other users crack my score, which is now the new record.
I used the Defender cartridge made in Brazil by POLYVOX in Silver Label.

For console sessions, Edladdin Super 78 Joystick mostly (Sega Master System for Pac-Man).

TIP: It's easier to protect 1 or 2 cities which are intact in the same side of screen and the antiballistic missiles, specially cities which are near the center. For me, the most confortable side to protect intact cities on later levels is RIGHT.

Controller used for this Prosystem VCS Console session: Sega Master System.
What controller are you using to play this 2600 game (just for curious), JES?
Currently I'm playing this game very well with my Edladdin Super 78 Joystick for my ProSystem VCS Console sessions (I won this joystick on 2016 Summer Contest realized here). And the 2600 Pac-Man I'm still playing very well with my Sega Master System controller.
Ih, my bad - I didn't explored the Twin Galaxies World Record for this title, variation and category.
177,480 by John P McAllister
Lower score: 31,300 by Rodrigo Lopes
Thanks very much, Bernard Larquey!
Each time DBCooper post a score which will result on winning the FIRST TROPHY, a good strategy is to set LOW scores and give a chance to others crack a worldwide, national, state or city trophy (JES, ILLSeaBass, pathebert, Larquey etc. for the case of Asteroids 1 Life for M.A.M.E.)
See some recent examples of low scores which resulted or will result on winning the FIRST Trophies:
1) Defender - Game 8 for Atari 2600 Emulated
2) Xmas Time for Atari 7800 Emulated
3) Ms. Pac-Man for SNES Emulated
Star of Honor Patch is almost impossible for me. The difficulty is brutal!
I'm able to unlock the Medal of Merit and Cross of Excellence patches.
An excellent reason to set your SUPER LOW score.
On Asteroids (One Life Only) for Arcade Emulation / M.A.M.E., your score is TOO HIGH for the FIRST TROPHY. What you should do for First Trophies is to set SUPER LOW scores - cncfreak set LOW scores to win a significant number of FIRST Trophies. Based on this consideration, I voted NO on your Asteroids score.
Final score at 4:33 mark. Let's celebrate Christmas with Stay Frosty 2!
I saved Santa Claus and now Mrs. Claus just to bring more happiness for us!
FIRST score for this game, category and variation, so I avoided videos.
Score to give a chance to others crack my worldwide trophies.
I saw the super low score set by ED1475, so I just passed 12,000 and immediately I comitted suicide to let other users crack my worldwide trophy. Sometimes I set scores which are lower than I am able to reach.

Maze layout proves it's MAZE 1. Voted YES!
Glad to see you posting scores here from your ProSystem VCS Console.
First Score for this game, variation and category. I'm setting low score because it will result on winning my FIRST TROPHY.
At my own discretion, video is necessary only for scores which are more difficult to beat / enough to get World Ranking Number 1.
Have you ever played Atari games on your Video Computer System Console?
Do you have any consoles in your house (just for curiosity)? I have 1 console which I won this year - Atari 7800 ProSystem VCS Console (2 systems in 1 - 2600 and 7800).
What emulator are you using for 2600? I'm using Stella as "default" emulator.
I voted YES on impulse without checking your evidence.
The reason - you TIED the TOP score of 53 by The Trickster.
Great score, Christian Keilback!
Try to beat at least one of my TOP scores on 2600 Pac-Man, obtained from my Atari Console:

YES, it's right. For this title all the means of earning points are ACCEPTABLE.
Awesome score, Christian Keilback.

IN THIS OPTION a 999,999-point score can be posted freely, so MatthewFelix is allowed to submit this value.
Since this is Any Settings / Any Tactics, point-leeching / sit and shoot is allowed.
"Any Tactics" means you can leech the score, or sit and shoot freely.
On 7800 Desert Falcon, for example, you can shoot in the same place to score more points.
This score should be posted under "Any Settings / Any Tactics".

Christian Keilback, congratulations on winning the Silver Medal at Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC Season 5!
While Season 6 of the NEW 2600 HSC doesn't start, post your scores here on many 2600 games. With your Harmony Cartridge, have fun much more!
I understood. For other Arcade/MAME scores I voted YES on your submissions.
IH, wrong evidence (it's NOT Reavers Run)!
I and other users need clues to see your final score.
I voted YES impulsively on your last submissions!
In the video above:
0:41:07 - 1 million
1:15:12 - 2 million
1:51:02 - 3 million
As you said at 2:11:05 mark, you score is 3,499,980 points.
I got closer to your score, man!
And SOOO CLOOOSE to the ending!
Because I'm the greatest Atari fan and lover - the games in general are more interesting than other systems.
Since I'm a retrogamer, I don't like modern videogame consoles (XBOX, WII etc.). Atari is my greatest preference.
My 2600 Pac-Man cartridge which I bought is black label with picture, model CX-2646.
The Sega Master System Controller I bought at Super Games (Center of Curitiba) on May 7th, 2016. Price: approximately R$ 50,00 (Real / R$ is the current monetary unit in Brazil).
And I bought on the same date 2600 Pac-Man original cartridge at Sebomania store (also in the center of Curitiba). Price: R$ 100,00.
These were minimum items to test my Atari 7800 Prosystem Console, which arrived at home on May 2nd, 2016.
Maybe on the next month, I will be more active to post more scores from Atari Console, which is more preferrable than emulation.
STRATEGY: To defend one of 2 buildings easily in this game and score more points therefore, try to let the enemies drop bombs in one of these buildings until the total destruction. I used this tactic to score more and more points.
Congratulations to Mister-VCS on being the new moderator of 7800 High Score Club at Atari Age, now 7800 NEW HSC!
Videos I will provide at Atari Age 7800 NEW HSC only for great scores, specially in case of victory or breaking a new record on MESS, EMU7800 or Prosystem Emulator.
For scores obtained on my Atari 7800 Prosystem Console, I will provide video only for new 7800 HSC Records (or tieing the current record).

I was just curious to see your machine. I Voted YES on all your Atari scores.
When I post new scores on 2600 Ghostbusters, I will submit picture only!
And I will avoid posting gameplay videos on YouTube just to respect the copyright, whose owner is Columbia Pictures Corporation for Ghostbusters.
GHOSTBUSTERS is my game for the First Round of Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC Season 5 Medal Bracket Tournament (Bronze Challenge).
I'm just trying to learn the mechanics of this game, which I NEVER played!
Before voting NO on my score, check out Ghostbusters Contest with closest attention at 2600 NEW HSC Regular Rounds (Season 5, Movie Weeks):
The specific variation of this game allows the use of cart-frying, so I used this feature exceptionally. By default on Stella Emulator, Backspace is the key to fry cartridge. On Atari Console, turn power off and on more rapidly!

Small score to give chances to other users crack my Worldwide Trophy for the future Atari Contests.

Depending on the reputation level, I vote NO directly without checking carefully their scores and evidences (BlondeSurferGirl / FASHIONLANDGAL in special). And I believe fake users can vote against and attack users in the trust zone like you (Anthony), S.BAZ, Nads, Larcen Tyler and Mantalow.
For users in the trust zone, I vote YES and, in some occasions, type my comments / observations / considerations.
I'm playing by the standard rules (High Score and Atari Age High Score Clubs). At Atari Age HSCs, I'm using in the present the standard etiquette based on High Score (Identification in the picture / video).

According to the manual:
When the "Earth Shield" bar reaches zero status (totally black), all your reserve ships are automatically destroyed, and you will go to the last life consequently. So, it's the mechanics of this game.
I have the 2600 Pac-Man cartridge. It was the first game which I played with my Atari 7800 Prosystem Console which I won.
YES vote from me!
Continue playing much more Atari 7800 on your Prosystem, even after the end of these Summer Contests, specially Pac-Man Collection!

This score is just to give a chance to other players crack my worldwide trophy, including S.BAZ!
Preliminary score for Atari Age 7800 High Score Club.
Low score to give chances to crack my worldwide trophy for this game and settings, including our High Score King (S.BAZ).
Your score is 67,180 points as I verified in the video above.
At 1,150 points, I decided to die and then try to give a chance to other players crack my worldwide trophy for this game and setting (S.BAZ, Peter Nadalin etc.).
Statistical table included for this submission (details of gameplay recorded in the video above).
At 1:04:44 mark in the video above, I hit F5 accidentally (Open ColEm Emulator Menu) when my intention is to press 5 key to turn the mouse into a dog.
And UNDERSTAND there are 2 versions of this game, according to Atarimania site:
"The later version (packaged with a b&w manual) fixes the infamous pole vault bug."
You exploited the Pole Vault glitch by exceeding 5.6 meters (Higher Pole Vaulting).
According to Twin Galaxies Official Rules for the 2600 Decathlon, the maximum entry for this event is 5.6 meters. Based on these rules, I voted NO.
Once you clear successfully a 5.6-meter height on Pole Vault event, PLEASE: miss the subsequent height all times until you enter the next event (Javelin).

40:00 - score 12,599 (2599 displayed)
44:50 - score 14,100 (4100 displayed). At this point, I decided to stop playing - this game is tedious for me with visible maze.

The only tip which I'm able to give is watch my 2 Grand Prix gameplay videos (To unlock a patch for this game easily, I chose Game 4 - Monaco with 3 bridges, 2min30sec or less as required performance).
1) Grand Prix for Silver Medal Finals at Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC Season 3:
2) Grand Prix for the Activision Patches Summer Quest Contest 2015 at Atari Age (First Edition):
Of course I would NOT vote against your score. I would vote NO in the following situations:
Took me many attempts and resets to reach this score on Game 9, the most difficult variation of all.
Since this score resulted on the "FIRST" trophy, you should submit scores below 1,000 points for this Atari 2600 title, in order to let other users crack your worldwide trophy for special occasions, like 2016 Summer Contests in progress - Atary Systems.
Each time you post scores which will result on winning the "FIRST TROPHY" - please, post super low scores for games whose scoring format is points from highest to lowest. For times (lowest to higest), post the worst times as possible; otherwise I will vote NO on impulse.
Tied Peter Nadalin's score for this game and settings!
Default Skill Level is NOVICE.
Difficulty Switches on DEFAULT position (B/Novice) - cannons don't fire at player's ship.
Try to beat my scores on 2600 Missile Command (Console and Emulator)!
In this Summer Contest in progress, I cracked the first Worldwide Trophy from the game Missile Command on my Atari 7800 Prosystem Console.
And good to see you participating in this Summer Contest. Our prize will be a 2-button joystick (Edladdin Controller), for Atari 7800 Platform.
For the next time I post a new score on Bumper Bash (minimum of 55,230), I will provide a video.
To reach this score, I changed control scheme on Stella 4.7.2 Emulator for Windows PC:
There are easy scores which you can beat on Atari 2600 Emulated category and therefore crack my worldwide trophy:
To reach this score, I used the "extra car and special bonus points" technique: I avoided destroying any other cars on the first 4 levels.
Forgot to mention in the video above: successful run starts at 07:07 mark.
Score to give a chance to others crack my worldwide trophy during this Summer Contest (The Trickster, S.BAZ, Peter Nadalin etc.) for this game, variation and category.
Rolled The Score at 19:11 mark (100,000 points) and game stopped at 23:23 mark.
I decided to stop this gameplay without losing all my remaining lives just to give opportunities to other users crack my Worldwide Trophy during this Summer Contest (The Trickster, Peter Nadalin, S.BAZ etc.).
Successful run starts at 07:28 mark in the video above.
Rolled The Score at 17:03 mark (10,000 points) and game over at 17:07 mark
Gameplay 1 - Game 2BB, score 20,000 points, starts at 00:00 mark, game over at 15:13 mark and rollovers occur at 07:53 (10000 points) and 15:07 marks (20000 points)

Reference to find the Galaxian Arcade ROM at Atari Age:
Score to give a chance to others crack my worldwide trophy during this Summer Contest.
Improvement, but this score is not enough to crack S.BAZ's Worldwide Trophy for this game, variation and category.
Thanks for your positive consideration!

An opportunity which I gave specially to Peter Nadalin!
Before voting NO / Settings or video desired, I am avoiding videos for scores which are not enough to get a new World Record per game / variation / category.
Sorry for the flickering at the presence of EVIL OTTO; I forgot to enable Phosphor Mode on Stella 4.7.2 Emulator, and use Analog TV Effects feature!
One of easy scores which you can beat on Atari Systems to crack my Worldwide Trophy is 2600 Kangaroo Advanced Difficulty on Stella Emulator - 9,700 points. Just score 10,000 points which is enough.

Nice to see you, Ryan Genno!

I used my patterns based on Gleen Sampson's method to reach this astronomical score!

I thought you played Pac-Man Collection for the Atari 7800!!
Voted YES - your potential to win a prize on Colecovision Contest is significant!
The High Score screen on the GBA Activision Anthology reads 300,000 points, so I entered as displayed on the bottom picture.
Remember that PAUSING IS MANDATORY just to show the current position of Difficulty Switches, which was adjusted to B for this gameplay - 4 seconds to touch Squid.
Score is 52,459 points, NOT 52,549 as I verified.
Game 16, Setting AA - Both difficulty switches on the RIGHT position (POS. " II ")

Arenafoot, there is an EASY score to crack my worldwide trophy - 1000 points on Chopper Command, Game 3 / Difficulty A (Atari 2600 Emulated). Beat this score immediately!!
Thanks. Do you have any Atari consoles at home (2600, 5200, 7800 etc.)?
I have an Atari 7800 Prosystem Console which I won from High Score Contest at the starting of April 2016. Currently I'm playing Pac-Man and Missile Command with original cartridges.
At least once a week, I'm turning on my 7800 Console.

At 100,000+ points, I decided to stop playing, and try to give an opportunity to other users to crack my worldwide trophy.
I used Glenn Sampson's method to reach this score.
Correction - crack a worldwide trophy
SOOOOO CLOOOOSE to track a Worldwide Trophy on 2600 Zaxxon!
Remember the Atari Contest on High Score has begun - Trophy Cracking Contest for many Atari Systems.
Wrong score by 100 POINTS.
The performance required for World Class Dragster Club patch is 6.00 seconds or less!
Voted YES by 2 special reasons:
- Performance not enough to get an Activision Patch for Dragster.
- Score not enough to crack a Worldwide Trophy.
BY THE WAY, the Activision Patches Summer Quest Contest (Second Edition - 2016) at Atari Age is in progress. You are invited to join us on this special competition.
This is the first score for this game, category and variation, so before voting NO and video desired / settings, I'm giving a chance to other participants crack my Worldwide Trophy, including Deteacher, S.BAZ and other Atari fans

Score posted on June 25th, 2016 for Atari Age Special Contest - The Activision Patches Summer Quest Second Edition - with evidences presented to Retrogamer81081 (Keith Carlson).
My TIP for you on Atari Trophy Cracking: start with games and scores which are easier to crack worldwide trophies.
Score entered on the wrong value by 10 POINTS!
Anyways I voted YES just because you are on Atari Age Moderator.
Score in whole miles - 967
For the 2016 Activision Patches Summer Quest Contest at Atari Age. The use of Activision Anthology game is also allowed on this thread.
Thanks. Play Colecovision games harder - new competition has begun!!
One trophy I already cracked on the new Atari Competition!
Missile Command Game 1-AA from my Atari 7800 Prosystem Console.
New contest includes Arcade/MAME, Atari, Colecovision and Nintendo!
Since this score is not enough to crack NADS's Worldwide Trophy, I submitted minimum evidence (one picture).
Score for the 2016 Activision Patches Summer Quest Contest at Atari Age.
Played on Atari 7800 Console - minimum evidences only!
Gameplay video I only record when I use emulators.
Setting BB - Both Difficulty Switches on the LEFT position (POS. " I ")
Game 1: 1 player, Wave 1, No Smart Cruise Missiles and Normal Target Control.
ATTENTION FOR THE EXCEPTION on the 2016 Activision Patches Summer Quest Contest at Atari Age:
"Save states can be used for one exception. You can use it only for Laser Blast if you want to go for the 1,000,000 point special patch. Since it takes many hours to get it so you can use that as the pause feature and come back to the game at another time. It will be too greuling in one sitting."

Just click on "Remove This Score" button if you posted your scores on the wrong setting (or scores which are not in accordance to standard rules). Normal / Medium / Standard / Intermediate is usually the default difficulty setting on many games and many platforms.
For example, on Atari 7800 Asteroids, Intermediate and One Player are the factory default settings.

IH, Paul Kearns - wrong video evidence submitted.
Fullscreen mode ("1/2" icon) enabled to avoid "bad surprises", as I did on Game Boy category.
Number at the lower left corner of the screen represents the Framerate, enabled and adjusted to INTEGRAL value on Fusion Emulator (60 FPS).
Sorry to Deteacher and S.BAZ!
5200 Ms. Pac-Man on Pear Variation is more irresistible to play and break one more record!
Difficulty Switches on Left Position, equivalent to B / Novice (POS. "I").
Controller used: Sega Master System.
Ms. Pac-Man on Banana Level is more irresistible to play and break a new record on Atari 5200 Emulated.
In my real life, Banana is my favorite fruit - I often eat it!

Now I have one more original cartridge to play on my Atari 7800 Prosystem Console - 2600 Missile Command.
Fast Forward feature (Insert key) used on ZSNES Emulator at the moment I completed a stage (transition between levels) and I lost a Ms. Pac-Man (transition between lives) because I was IN A HURRY.

Default Settings (1 Player, Pac-Booster OFF, Normal Difficulty, Arcade Maze and Starting Level 1 - Cherries)
Start button (Enter key) pressed to skip intermissions (They Meet and The Chase) just to save my time - I'm a hurried player.
