Yes, it is. My longest gameplay which I played was Xenophobe for Atari 7800 - I spent 3 hours and 15 minutes to play it in the single session using ProSystem Emulator and keyboard, and choosing Novice skill.
High Score. In 2016 I posted super low scores on some Atari 5200 games, which resulted on me winning the First Trophies and giving an opportunity to other players crack my worldwide trophies (like Deteacher and S.BAZ, who are AtariAge Members). Here are some examples:
Video in process. It will be ready soon!!
By 10-point margin. WOW!!
I believe it's a TROLL. At my own discretion, video is NOT necessary for small scores (easy to someone beat).
Speaking on Infiltrate, you lost the opportunity to post scores at Atari Age 2600 High Score Club. Looks like you missed the 2600 NEW HSC Season 8, Weeks 19 and 20 (Crime Weeks Volume 1), with the games Infiltrate and Private Eye. The 2-week contest started on February 7th, 2019, and ended last Sunday (February 24th). The stage in progress at 2600 HSC is another 2-week contest with Crime Weeks Volume 2 (Bank Heist - Game 1BB, Gangster Alley - Game 1BB and Outlaw as Bonus Game - Game 16BB). Join us at Atari Age 2600 High Score Club and participate (remember: only new scores from new matches; no old scores allowed)!

Once I entered Level 2, I punched monkeys and falling apples continuously near the right edge of screen until I run out of Bonus Timer and all my remaining lives. This technique I used to replicate my 48,600-point score on both Stella Emulator and Atari 7800 console.
Novice Skill (Game 1) played for Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC Season 8, Week 7 in progress.
Advanced Skill (Game 2) played just for fun.
Added a photo of my 2600 Kangaroo Game Program, made in Brazil by Polyvox in Silver Label.
Presence of monkey on the title screen represents Advanced Skill.
Scores noted on my identification paper, and separeted by skill level (Novice and Advanced).

Remember that Novice skill is TEDIOUS and BORING.

On your YouTube account, my greatest suggestion is to add your WATERMARK (represented by your HighScore.com current avatar). I added the watermark recently on my YouTube videos (it's a picture of Snottepillar on my current AtariAge Forums avatar).
The square symbol near the score proves it is EASY skill level.
Added in the video above my YouTube watermark to reinforce my identification.
Added the picture which represents my current watermark on my YouTube videos.

Before voting NO on my score, check the following reference:
The winner is... DR. MOOCOWZ, with 34760 points. He is the RECORD SETTER on 7800 HSC.
The moderator NIKON considered my score BELIEVABLE!

You are getting more familiar with Donkey Kong Jr.
Between the 2600 and 7800 versions of this arcade game, I prefer the 7800. I'm TERRIBLE on 2600 Donkey Kong Junior.

Astro Blaster has been played recently at Atari Age 7800 HSC (Season 2017-2018, Round 10). Check out my video presented to the Moderator NIKON.
Yes vote from me Jesse.
And a clue from me - final score visible at 54:30 mark in the video evidence.
It's a hack based on Ms. Pac-Man for Atari 2600.
JacobZu7zu7 (Atari Age Member and 2600 / 7800 HSC Ex-Moderator) said about PAUSING on Astroblast during the Atari 2600 Knockout 2012 at High Score Club:
"Yes that would be legal, for about 1-5 mins, respectably.
Such as, if a bathroom break is needed, or to shake your hand from cramps, it's ok... but no long lunch breaks etc...it must be a session of gaming, not to "vacation" between each 10ks or something."
For your 8-hour marathon, usage of pause is LEGAL at my own discretion on Astroblast! With this consideration I voted YES!
YES vote from me Peter Nadalin!
At Twin Galaxies, I saw your face on your profile!
For the contest mentioned above, I have the following questions:
1) Is the original hardware MANDATORY (Atari 2600 / VCS and equivalent consoles)?
2) Game 1 or default game variation unless otherwise specified. Am I CORRECT?
YES vote from me on all your scores.
My best personal score on Keystone is almost 250,000 points, obtained for Atari Age 2600 NEW HSC, final round of Season 2 (December 2013).
In the last edition of Activision Patches Summer Quest (year 2017) on Atari Age, I played Keystone Kapers until I reached 50,000 points and then I stopped playing.
Have you ever tried the Double Shots as I presented in my video footage?
Try also Games 2 to 16, which are available on High Score database.
You saw my Space Invaders cartridge is Picture Label (blue letters on End Label).
JacobZu7zu7 was the Atari Age 7800 HSC Moderator from 2011 to 2016.
On the current season of 7800 HSC (2017-2018), whose moderator is NIKON, I'm including video ONLY for close scores to 1st place of each round, wins and new records. I provided video of my scores on Rounds 6 (Beef Drop Main Scoring, Normal Skill) and 8 (Pac-Man Collection).
Yes, that's true. I violated the rules in Desert Falcon on Atari Age 7800 HSC Season 2012 by using excessive point farming / leeching, i.e., I shot in one place of the same desert to earn more and more points.
To see the example of measures which I took at Atari Age 7800 HSC, check out the topic Desert Falcon on Season 7 / Game 5, realized in 2014 (my evidences are in Post #16).
What JacobZu7zu7 (7800 HSC Moderator in 2016) said during Season 8, after my Failsafe video footage was blocked worldwide due to copyright on YouTube - visual content claimed by UEFA:
"You've proven to be posting legit scores at the 7800 HSC. You may or may not post videos with your scores, its fine now honest player
I'm sure the videos that have been posted so far have helped people learn to play oyama-style"
And Atarifever said still during Season 8 of 7800 HSC:
"I agree that Oyama has proven himself honest beyond any doubt. I was looking the place over here, as I may finally be able to start playing again (my 7800 and most of my possessions have been in storage for 15 months now, after we moved our family for a new job). My first thought was "man, why is this guy still required to post proof of anything?" I think it's obvious by now you're just really good."
You should do as usual - just submit scores normally under correct category / game title / settings.
Some users who play Atari games on 7800 Prosystem have a composite modified for this system like me and JIN.

Nice console. Yes vote.
I won the composite modded Atari 7800 Prosystem in 2016 as a prize by winning the Atari 5200 / 7800 Worldwide Trophy Cracking Contest, realized here. Also in the same year, I won the Eddladin Super 78 joystick by winning another contest - Atari Trophy Cracking Summer Contest.

Remember the following rule: "ALL NEW SCORES MUST BE POSTED; NO OLD SCORES ALLOWED. POST YOUR NEW SCORE AT ATARIAGE HIGH SCORE CLUB FIRST, THIS WILL AVOID CONFUSION OF "WHEN" A SCORE WAS RECORDED!"
To DuggerVideoGames and Pjsteele,
If you post your scores on 2600 Burgertime at Atari Age High Score Club, keep in mind you have to play a new game and ALL NEW SCORES MUST BE POSTED; NO OLD SCORES ALLOWED.
YES vote from me by considering you are the DONKEY KONG GENIUS on 7800 platform.
Remember that this game variation ALLOWS cheating, which is Double-Shots for this title.

Be careful - turn OFF your Atari VCS / 2600 / 7800 console when you insert or remove a Game Program cartridge. Otherwise... your fun will be over!
YES vote from me!
Just to let Mike know, I won 2 Atari cartridges on Atari Age 2600 HSC Season 2017. One of them by participating in all 32 rounds and another one by winning the Bonus Round. The games which I chose were Asteroids and Space Invaders (Picture label by Atari).
I'm just curious - what controller do you use for emulation sessions?
To play Space Invaders for 2600, I use keyboard on Stella, and Eddladin Super 78 joystick on my Atari 7800 console.
The statistical table (details of gameplay footage) I made with Microsoft Excel.
Here on HighScore.com and at Atari Age High Score Club, I was forced to provide pictures + video + tables to document my score in some occasions.
One of contests in which I provided picture + video + statistical table was Chopper Command at 2600 HSC during NEW Season 6 (Season 2017).
Welcome to the HighScore.com - YES vote from me
For highest scores, video is highly recommended.
Video is also recommended when you post your higher scores on 2600 games with Difficulty Switch A/Expert, like Asteroids, Missile Command and Space Invaders.
Congrats on breaking my record on this 7800 homebrew game, and paying a tribute to the programmer KEN SIDERS, who passed away in 2017.

At my own discretion, PAL / NTSC DOESN'T matter for score submissions!
At Atari Age High Score Clubs Forums and here on HighScore.com, there are members located in the region of the world whose video format is PAL (nominal frequency is 50 Hz), specially Europe and Australia.
Infos about TV Format at Atari Age: http://atariage.com/common/video_key.php
I asked to the moderator of 2600 High Score Club at Atari Age Forums, who will be VOCELLI for the next season (2018) - "Does Color Format (PAL - 50 FPS / NTSC - 60 FPS) matter in this HSC?"
CapitanClassic said: "I would say no. The HSC has players from all around the world, I am sure someone is in a location that only has PAL TVs. It would be a shame to force them to play it on emulators if they have the real hardware. "
"No. It does not matter. And for the record.... Emulation is not preferred but I understand that it is needed because we do not own all the games (although I am trying, lol).
That's fine to use emulation but PLEASE... OH PLEASE... be honest.
Sometimes it is disheartening for Hardware players to see someone post a high score on Emulation not knowing what goes on behind the 'flip this switch/moving this switch/using that switch'. Sometime I question if I should give extra points to Hardware users. But then there is 'cart frying' and 'bugs'.
So PLEASE... nothing is won here... just play for fun and try to make it fun for all and we can see our HSC continue to be a success."
With these considerations, any color format is ALLOWED at my own discretion.
Nominal Framerate on PAL format is 50 frames per second (video frequency is 50 Hz). PAL is slower than NTSC format, whose nominal value is 60 Hz / 60 FPS.
I play Atari games mostly on NTSC format and nominal framerate of 60 FPS.
In my country (Brazil), 60 Hz is the nominal frequency and PAL-M is the video format implemented in the 1970s.
And try also the 7800 version of GALAGA!

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.
Rollovers occur at the following marks: 0:28:26 (1 million), 0:47:07 (2 million), 1:03:38 (3 million), 1:18:21 (4 million), 1:30:55 (5 million), 1:43:22 (6 million) and 1:55:44 (7 million).

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!
You deserve your own victory on this Paddle Game!
Gameplay 1 - Game 1BB, final score 15,075 (starts at 00:13 mark and game over at 05:00 mark)

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).

But this year my goal is to finish the Season 2017 on the 1st place at Atari Age High Score Club, at least in one of two categories - 2600 and 7800.
And for Atari Age High Score Club, category 5200, I'm not worring with my current Ranking.

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.
Settings and the respective score noted on my identification paper. Remember that Game 2 is the DEFAULT GAME MODE.
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:
Difficulty BB (Easy Skill - 25 shots required to complete the 1st screen, slowest speed of evil chopping mummy on 2nd screen, lamp turned ON and slow moving wall on screens 3 and 4, and slow Dracula chasing you on final screen)
Final score visible at 28:25 mark.

Used Altirra Emulator for Atari 5200.
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.
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. Also, provide infos which describe the evidences (picture / video) and best tips for players who are not familiar with certain games.
As an example, I'm going to share my tips provided at Atari Age 2600 OLD High Score Club, Season 7 / Week 39 (Gopher), and resulted on winning 2 bonus points:

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).

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.

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.

Bowling and Yars' Revenge were the last 2 cartridges which I bought in 2016 at Sydnei Games in Curitiba just to have more fun with my ProSystem Console.

Nice score. Try also Expert Skill for this 7800 title!

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.
Evidences dedicated to all High Score users, all the children of the entire world, and Anthony Cabello / Lupita Cabello in special.

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!

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).

When I post new scores on 2600 Ghostbusters, I will submit picture only!

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!

YES, I do (for both questions).
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).
I have the highest sense of humour!
Although my proficience level in Japanese is very low, I can understand by looking at the graphics of game!
You know I'm one of your friends!

Have you ever read the Atari 7800 Manuals?
Available at Atari Age:
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.
Continue playing much more Atari 7800 on your Prosystem, even after the end of these Summer Contests, specially Pac-Man Collection!
