Thanks, that was the best I ever did with this one!

I only got 40 this morning, although that's a decent score too, as I only missed one section throughout the whole game.

There's an entry for the Web/Centipede but by the looks of it it's a different game: http://highscore.com/scores/Web/Centipede/24208

I couldn't quite read the site address that you played the game on from your video, but let's say it's from a site name called "Focal" or something (a word that popped up from your video that I could read).  Then I'd make a request under Web for "Centipede (focal.com)" and then repost your video on that once it gets approved and added to the database.

Looks like this is one of the "forgotten" ones, as several of the other Wii Sports entries have several each.  There's only one other one here for the time being.  I just did my best game ever on this today and thought I'd look up the record on this.

@TylerStinson:

Well, that's a shame.  It'd be good to get more scores from RRMA up there rather than just the ones I have, as I never did one for Asteroids, as I think the score instantly disappears once the game ends, which I figured it'd be better to record a game and then submit it that way but we don't have a decent video capture device.  Someone could still grab First trophies for that one before I do.

What you should do is remove this score though, which will raise your Legit rating.  Even with good enough evidence such as video there are times when butthead trolls on here stlll vote no on submissions when they're probably legit (just an FYI in case you plan on sticking around here for a while, as this happens from time to time).  Then resubmit the video once the Web Space Invaders (freewebarcade) category is approved and put it in the database.

Turns out you can still download the game, luckily: http://www.minionsoft.com:80/wordpress/?page_id=193

What would you be playing it on, though?  It looks like in the video you're using a Chromebook.  If it's the cheapest Chromebook that runs on Chrome then it won't run this game; if it's one of the more expensive ones that duel-boots into Windows 10 it might work but I don't know (I know for a fact it'll work on an XP computer).

No you did NOT beat my score!  We did not play the same game; they're totally different.  It's very difficult to get 1000, much less 10,000 on the RRMA version of the game.

The guy's web site is gone, either self-deleted or he had a copyright claim that caused his site to be removed (since he ripped sounds directly from some of the games).  I'll look around later to see if somewhere his games were archived and send you a link if they were.  If they weren't, I'll look on my XP computer to see if I still have RRMA and I can e-mail it to you.  You'll see yourself where you won't be able to score anywhere that high as on here, along with the games being totally different!

This is NOT the RRMA version of Space Invaders.  This guy played a web version of Space Invaders, not the RRMA version, which you have to download to play.  All you have to do is look at my photo of the game and it's very obvious these two games are not the same, along with looking at this video where this guy, again, played a different web version of the game.

@Fryboy69:

Just withdraw it, play another good game and post another score.

Another thing to look at is the high score table: I'm currently top at 11,000.  If you could actually get several hundred thousand points then there'd be at least one, if not several people with scores that high, which there aren't.  My vector gaming forums have hosted the last several Vector War contests and I don't know currently off the top of my head what the highest Berzerk score was but I'm sure it wasn't even 15,000.  And the competition gets VERY fierce during those contests.

Welcome to the site though :)

This score isn't valid.  This is a bug that causes a gigantic high score glitch.  It would literally take all day long to get a score like this. The game becomes unplayable by 13-15,000, hence this score is impossible under normal circumstances.

Included the cartridge in the shot (right click on view image to make it larger), as the title screen doesn't keep the score and there's nothing else identifying this game for those that don't know it.

Kind of strange to have this in the database due to this score being the highest you can get on it.  It's not that hard.

@Mark:

Yeah the pinball sections on here (3 and 5 balls) are for real, actual physical pinball machines.

I assume you'll just have to request this stuff like on The Pinball Arcade, like they have it here in the database, like Pinball Arcade: Arabian Knights (iOS) as an example.

I forgot what the name of the virtual pinball thingy it was that you played several of these games on, but I figure it should be requested like this: "Virtual Pinball Thing: Firepower".  You'd probably need to request a new platform of the Virtual Pinball Thing first, then request the games one by one (although an admin might say differently, so feel free to to correct me on this).  Either way it'll take some time to do though, probably.

If the machine is totally virtual then you'd need to somehow add this as a new entry into the database.  This category is for REAL pinball machines, not virtual ones, unless what you're saying (I'm not sure what it is) is that you played it on a real pinball table but the backboard or whatever was virtual.

@S.BAZ:

I'd check it out.  What the deal is, you've got five castles, four of which are themed (flame castle, which burns your health away, an ice castle, which you slide around, etc.).  There are traps everywhere, which stepping on them will unlock more and more of each floor until you can reach the last floor (eventually) and face a dragon boss.  The passwords to continue are damn ridiculously long though but there are shops to buy upgraded stuff with.

If you're able to beat the final castle there's a choice of two endings but they're rather disappointing.  Oh well, the music kicks ass though :)

Also, you may have played this on a multi-cart rather than just the game itself.

"Rad Action Pak" is a pirate cart, I do believe.  So he'd have to play it either under the listing of something like "Rad Action Pak: Frostbite" or "Frostbite (Rad Action Pak)", neither of which is in the database.  So that leaves to removing this score entirely and requesting one of those two, unless he has the actual Frostbite cart, which he CAN submit a score for that, of course.

@CousinVinnie:

Not sure exactly.  Somewhat of an explanation is offered on the original/MAME score here:

 

'A very large bonus of 10,000 is given for getting through 4 waves and refueling by using exactly 2 shots more than the minimum needed.'

So you must use exactly the number of shoot of all Aliens in the 4 waves + 2 misses.

But then a follow-up post stated this:

Looking at the video, I miss more than 2 times. So there must be some other system behind it aswell. Weird????

Dunno, really!

Probably need to right click on photo, then click on View to see the pic better, as I wanted to get as much as the game bezel and marquee in (yes, it’s obviously Super Pac-Man due to him wearing the cape, plus it was the only Pac-Man at the time that added a button to the controls and where you could enter your initials to the high scores).

Ha, forgot a pattern and only got about half the score I usually do (my score on the Retro Arcade Featuring Pac-Man plug and play system is nearly twice this if I remember correctly, and I can get 250,000 on a really good game).  Remembered what the deal was later (of course!).

You can see part of the Blasteroids control panel in the pic, along with some game on the left (Defender?) and Commando on the right.  Right click on photo and then click on View to see it better.

Continuances were NOT used.

Played at the H. A. A. G. expo yesterday.

This is from the unlocked game of Neon Invasion Earth.  You have to beat all 100 levels before this game is unlocked.  The ending stats screen is different between the two games.

Even though they might play the same to you, *technically* they're totally different: on MAME, you're playing the original ROM of the game, but with plug and play systems, they're usually reprogrammed (the plug and play that I have it on [Retro Arcade Featuring Pac-Man] was done by Digital Eclipse).

You have to have the pad for that that came with the game originally.  It brings up a grid/starmap or something and you have to warp to sectors to destroy enemy ships before they take out a starbase or something.

The pad also arms your shields and all too, I believe.

You might want to add your initials to your profile when you enter them on a high score table on a game.  That way they'll match, in case you can't do a video.

@S.BAZ:

if it does get split up into multiple charts I won't complain though!  & I'm happy to add specific charts if requested.  :)   And I agree that maybe these need a little better clarification. 

If we do want call this [any level start accepted] then for consistency's sake we should probably request the same for others like Tempest, Blaster, etc..

Of COURSE it should be added to Tempest!  That's what I've thought all along!  And I think I've stated that on submitted scores too, then never heard back, so I didn't vote on them, which is why I won't be voting on this score either because I don't believe it follows the rules.  Blaster I haven't played a game of since the 1990s so I don't recall.  I've seen videos of it on here before but I'm pretty sure people just started at the beginning so that didn't stick to my mind that it had various starting levels.

bear in mind also, at higher skill levels, these starting-bonuses become rather insignificant.  this chart is really just getting started with relatively small scores if you compare it to the TG scoreboard.

I don't "compare" the two sites because they're not much alike.

@S.BAZ:

There gets to be a kind of fuzzy grey area between which games need to be split up into separate categories & a few games on this site may not be set up the best way.

I don't see where there's a "grey area" where there's a 30,000 point bonus added to liberating three planets (which DB clearly did in the video) and there's ZERO bonus for playing for starting at level one, like I assume the other two record holders on here did (BarryBlasso did).  That's an unfair advantage, unless this is one of those types of entries that states something like "all tactics accepted" or whatever (which in this case would be something like "any start level accepted").

@DBCooper:

I didn't say "shouldn't".  There needs to be a seperate entry for this game, as there are many games on this database that state "level __ start".  This needs to be specified as well, especially since I can't speak for Larquey, since he never does videos, but BarryBloso's is still up and he started on level 1 just like the rules state.  You didn't, thus it is not the same game/in the correct category.

A couple of things here: one, in the second picture (which is a flat-out picture of my monitor, the first one was a screencap), you can barely make out my badge with my name on it at the bottom (why the camera flash wouldn't go off is beyond me).  The pic looks a little different because the "you lose" wording flashes on and off, hence why I caught it and that area looks blank in the photo.

Sigh...nicely set up, but it never seems to get any harder.  I went through all the levels until the music started repeating, then just quit :\

Even though I realize I can use old photos, as I got five rooms cleared in the gold gathered category, I'm not much for doing that, even though I cleared one more room than with this game I had earlier tonight.  However, that's still on par with getting far in this game though.

Ugh, I never would've played this again if I didn't find an entry for it here on the site.  I just quit to see if anything happened at 10,000 points/level 10 was passed but nothing did.  That was on my first ship and it never gets any harder.  I would say a wiki page I wrote on it can be seen here,

Yeah, I'd look for a faint door when you get to a supposed place where you can't go anywhere else, then arrow key down (I think it is, but then, the instructions are right there on the page) when standing in it to take you to the next room. 

Someone posted a screenshot on its page just the other day about removing that chunk, then just as quickly deleted it when they realized their mistake.

I've never gotten to a point where I couldn't continue in that game, ever.

It doesn't seem like it.  You and enemies definitely have hit points, at least.  And if you're lucky you can gain several items, which helps.  I just played a game about half an hour ago where I got everything (a lance or something, helmet, armor, shield) and all of that lasted me for quite a while. 

The main thing is clearing rooms, which the most I ever cleared is on this posted game (5).  Well, I cleared 4 with that last game.  I lost everything and then faced some really strong enemies.  Lesser enemies only deal one or two points of damage; well, the last thing I fought took one hit and wiped out 6 points right then and there.  It was game over not long afterwards, especially since I was back to my crappy original sword (think your "crappy little pistol" on Doom vs. anything else you get in that game for comparison!).

In this one you have to clear out rooms.  These dungeons are also randomized, although there are chunks that repeat, you just don't know what order they're going to be in until you start playing.  You just have to kill creatures and collect their gold.  Occasionally you'll find items (helmet, better weapon, armor) which help in case you screw up a jump and land on a spike (what looks like fire).  If you have an item, you won't lose any health (which can be replinished by collecting what looks like silver pieces after you kill something).

Just beware of the controls, as the joystick isn't that good and you'll be lucky if it even works period.  The twisty part of the joystick for Pole Position went out in less than three months of my first one, which I was able to exchange it due to it being under warranty.  The second one lasted for a lot longer than that before going out, but out it is.  No more P.

The video quality isn’t that great, but I figured it was better than just a photo, plus it was used and sent through the mail (thanks to thedarkbanshee for it though).

As I explain in the video, for those that don’t know, the Chromebook (mostly sold as a web browser) has some games that are exclusive to it, but this isn’t one of them, so this game was played under the right category (web game rather than Chrome).  The game can be played here: http://http://www.fzero.co.uk/invaders/

It’s the same game, and note the “Space Invaders Redux” at Kongregate is NOT the same.

I just played it on my Chromebook because it runs monstrously slow on the 11 year old family computer; on my Chromebook it plays fine.

Bit confused over this one: your video reads "MAME", yet this is under Neo Geo Emulated.  Or does that count for either category?  Because if I recall correctly with what little I know about the Neo Geo home system is that it had the same amount of power as its arcade counterparts (hence the severely high price tags on the games and all).  So perhaps this is filed under the correct category after all.

I know the second pic’s hard to see, as they automatically come out that size when you do a screengrab of them (luckily for some reason High Score blew up the first one).  Right click and view pic for a better view; Space Invader’s the very first one on the left.  You have to quickly do a screenshot or else your score will disappear, as there’s no high score screen/save.

Meh.  I’m a bit of a fan of the guy who redid this, what with his remake of the Atari Star Wars vector game, Phoenix and RRMA (clever redoing of an arcade with sounds from original games but only making them 64 x 64 pixels wide!) but he dropped the ball on this one.  Just raising the difficulty level and speed up doesn’t do this remake any favors.

The game can be downloaded here: http://www.minionsoft.com/wordpress/?page_id=92

There are several versions of this game, the biggest differences being between versions 1.1 and 1.2, which really affects your score.

In the brief video, after showing my score for several seconds, I pressed reset on my Vectrex, which took me to the title screen, showing I had uploaded a score for the correct version (being 1.2).

Decades later someone brought it to a gaming expo.  Still sucks today!  They had it for sale.  Don't know if anyone bought it (hopefully not...).

There's at least one other game in this database that I know of (could be several more on top of that too) where there's credits you can't give around.  After he explained that to me I gave him a yes vote.  I'd guess this one is ok as well.

I have the same issue with my laptop sometimes, I use 2 different screen capture programs, atube catcher or debut recording software. If one makes Mame sputter I'll try the other one if I still have issue's with both then I'll restart my computer.

Oh, ok, I just thought it was this old computer here.  (It's like you need a second computer to work a camera!)  But, at times the screen would blur and stay that way (forgot to mention that in my comment), so it seems like I still can't use it anyway, or at least not for MAME.

Well, poo.  I was hoping this would be my first ever video to send to the site, but unfortunately when you're running the digital camera software and MAME on an over 10 year old computer, it's going to cause the game to be jumpy and throw off your concentration and all.

So, I dedicate this score then to thedarkbanshee for sending me the camera.

So, there's no in-game music on this version or did you turn it off?

@ichigokurosaki1991:

Long time no see, Darryl. It's been a while since you uploaded scores lately. 

It's good to be back!  What the deal has been is that our digital camera is biting the dust; last year it was one of the directional keys that you'd press to scroll around the preview window or play a movie.  That's not a huge deal after the button fell off, as there's a hole you can just stick a pin into to work.  However, just the other week the delete key quit working, and I didn't want to fill up the rest of the memory card with video game stuff on the family camera.  I thought I'd wait until it was full to say that either a new camera was needed or I think I can format the card and wipe out all the pictures and start over.

But then I realized upon attaching the camera to the computer that you can resize, crop AND delete pictures from the computer! So I'm back in business now.

Sega CD Games are under Sega Genesis/Megadrive as it is a add-on.

I forget about that; I think of the CD as a separate system.  Some gaming websites list them separately or have them all lumped under Genesis.

A couple of notes: one, right click and view on photo if you can’t see my name on my badge at bottom left of photo (yeah, kind of hard to see, I know).  Also, in regards to the photo and video, note how it reads the number of continues used was ZERO.  In the video (after it was shown that I did not use any continuances), I pressed Start on my controller to get to the title screen.  It said three continues were available.  That is how many continues you get on the hard setting; on easy, you get five.

D=doubles the number of balls

S=slows down the ball
B=bonus/warps you to the next level

Also, if I remember correctly, with those things that roam around the playfield and can mess up your ball and all, you can hit them with your paddle and not die, as you were avoiding them.  If I'm wrong you don't have to do it ever again though :P

Check your controls again: there's an additional shield function that is used to knock ships back before they get past you.  If you're able to destroy them before they disappear from sight then they won't count against you.

You have several shields; possibly 10, I think, but I could be wrong.

First off, WATCH THE VIDEO.  It explains how the scoring works, as it clearly states at the end of the game which difficulty switches were used.

Here is how scoring works:

First, you have your basic score of how much time you have left whenever you finish a level plus with how well you do with each mini-game that is found in nearly every level.

Then, once you beat the game, you get these bonuses:

Left difficulty on B (nine chances to beat the game): 50 points
Right difficulty on B (slow Stalkers): 50 points

Here are the bonuses for having the difficulty switch(es) on A:

Left difficulty A (only five chances to beat game): 100 points
Right difficulty B (fast Stalkers): 100 points

I played using AB switches, meaning only five chances to get out and with slow Stalkers, making an additional 150 points total.  The footage clearly states this, as it was all I could do with an over 15 year old digital camera that can only record 15 seconds’ worth of footage.

A person could cheat without video by putting a difficulty switch on A and then claim it was on B when it wasn’t.        

Scoring can be confirmed with the instructions to the game here: http://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=167

Also, right click and View pic (which I'll have up shortly) in regards to the shot with my score and badge with my name on it, as it's a little blurry but still readable.

Hey, do you know what in tarnation is worth 50 points that appears to be a bunker on the score table screen during the attract mode?  I figured out that 10 points are deducted whenever you shoot a bunker but there doesn't seem to be a bonus awarded of 50 points per bunker if you don't shoot them at the end of a wave either.  Kind of weird to have that on the score table screen.

Had to get a bit creative with this one, as the blasted score rolled over to zero after the title screen appeared, which, with an old digital camera that only records 15 seconds' worth of footage, well, I couldn't get a screenshot with my name badge on it.  So, I just freeze framed part of the video and took a screenshot of the desktop with my name in the background on the highscore.com page (right click and then click on View in order to see the score better in the photo).

what do you mean?

There are different ROMs for games out there.  Tailgunner was cool in the arcades, yet when I played it years later on MAME it seemed borderline awful and monstrously dull, which I reflected in a review.  However, later when I needed to get some screenshots of it, I downloaded a ROM of it to do so and it moved a bit more quickly and all and seemed just like from "back in the day".  So obviously the first ROM I got was an easier/slower setting or something.

It happens.

@Mark:

Sadly I believe that with the Genesis/Mega Drive release they replaced it with Pong.

Not only that, but they really screwed it up: the Centipede and Missile Command on that package were like the 2600, and NOT the arcade versions, which was ridiculous.  And if that wasn't bad enough, I read that your shots fired so slowly on M. Command that you'd swear someone was sitting next to you and pressing the pause button over and over!  That never got a good review back in the day; however, the Williams Arcade's Greatest Hits sure as hell did, as I have that one.

I don't think it'd be "30+ mins", as possibly kernzy has an easier ROM/version of this game, as I couldn't even get 10,000 on this game after several plays myself.  So it might still be worth a go.

No title or game over screens on this one, hence no video.  Score's at the bottom center.

To access this game on the Vecmania cart, score 150 points on the Patriots Remix, then press pause.

This is an unusual game!  I've always enjoyed it on the emulator over the years though.  And if by some chance you come across it at a resale shop or garage sale (yeah, right), snap it up!  It's very rare!

6. Spectrum Joysticks only had one button, some two, but they were for the same function, but game you a choose of what button you prefered to use. In the game when using Joystick you have to pull the Joystick down to activate the barrier.

Hah, a common thing to do/easy to guess at :)

If you have other questions, or questions about other Spectrum games, just ask :-)

Oh yeah, one more (sorry, forgot about this one):

I'd need to know the controls if using a joystick, if possible.  I don't know much about the ZX, so I don't know if its joystick had only one button, so I'd have to know what was used for the barrier function then (I assume it'd be up or down on the joystick, like with several shooters for the Atari 2600).  Or if their joysticks had more than one button, then which one did which function, if you knew.

Cool, thanks!

1. Is this for one player only? 

2. Do you know of the mother ship point values?  From what I could see in the video, it seemed to be worth 4-5000 each time but I'm not exactly sure.

3. What format(s) was this released on (cart, floppy, tape)? 

4. If you know the proper names for things in the game, that'd be great (player's blaster [I know shield is known as "barrier" this time around], big and small birds, mother ship, mother ship segments/belt? [the latter has a point value to it of 5 points, for example, so it'd be good to know exactly what it's called, if possible]).

5. On the title screen, when S is pressed to start, does it go straight to the game then?  Did the options screen come first where you choose what kind of controls you want?

S to go to options or to start game?

Check your MAME settings; there's an extra button for warping, which will propel you to the top of the screen and back down.  The game's WAY better (and more fun) that way.  Also, once the blue ship stops, when the coast is clear, dock with it from the right and you'll get bonus points.

"Reputation"?  I haven't heard anything about about you.  Next...

"Legit rating"?  98.7%?  What's wrong with that?

Darrin confirmed it's the same game.  His needs to be moved to the Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition regular page, and not emulated, since he has the actual cart.

I've TRIED doing screen caps, lets put it that way :P Damn logout hit when I first tried making a comment and didn't feel like retyping the damn thing.

I did a photo of the screen and a screen capture.  The reason the latter is small is because, when using Stella, if you press Shift/Enter (I think it is), it shrinks the playing area.  I've trying doing screen caps with it on full screen and they just come out blank, so that's why I shrunk it.

Also, right click on photo and choose View if you have to, as that is a bit small and hard to see the score.

Bah ha ha, the blood red Vectrex in an eerie photo!  Well, that's what happens when you cover up the flash to try not to glare out the screen.

Resubmittal to beat my first pathetic score, which was the best I could do after several games at the time.  Yes, the video has no sound, due to shooting with an over 12 year old digital camera.

There is a hack of the Coleco version like this, but I don't know the name.

It isn't Donkey Kong VCS, though.. It in no way resembles the Coleco version.

Could've been the name of the hack, but luckily I found it already!

Create a category (if it's not there already)/move this score to Donkey Kong 2600: Pauline Edition.

You can see where it all matches up here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/209917-donkey-kong-2600-pauline-edition-cart-sale/

This isn't Donkey Kong--darrin was probably right the first time around--as you played as Mario on Donkey Kong, NOT the female you have to rescue.  There are also no hearts as part of the score as well.

I had this game back in the day and this is not it.  The instructions can be found online on atariage.com (here, actually http://atariage.com/manual_thumbs.html?SoftwareLabelID=148), and you can see by these scans what I said is true and correct.

So I take it this version was a faithful port?  On Retro Arcade Featuring Pac-Man, they totally ruined it by having only a four-way joystick (you know monstrously hard it is to dodge enemy fire with diagnals?!) and taking out the Mothership and those octogon-shaped tanks (whatever they're called) that you can only destroy with bombs, which was ridiculous.

I'm surprised, as it not only was out for quite a while starting in 2006, but it was also re-released in 2012, according to its plug and play wiki page (http://plugplaytvgames.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_Original_Trilogy, which it's now a full article, as I just greatly expanded it yesterday, as it had almost no info at all beforehand.  Lightsaber Duel is still greatly lacking though, but I'm not into hack and slash games for the most part, so I'm not submitting a score for it, nor playing it to get enough of a feel for it to think I could do a write-up for it).

I included links at the end to two reviews, one of which I did for Stage Select, giving it a 6 out of 10 (the games are too easy, but it's not bad), the other one to a negative review from AtariLeaf, as he told of how his "heart" was "ripped out" upon playing it.  Oh, please.  One, you have to look at who the unit was marketed to: young kids.  Two, who the hell released it?  Jakks Pacific did.  I don't know if it's still true nowadays (or if it was true back when I read it), but they supposedly didn't even have their own in-house development team.  How the hell they can license something, hire someone else to come up with games for it and sell it for $25 and still make a profit is beyond me (but then, again, it was supposedly re-released in 2012, so that could be why).

Sorry the evidence didn't turn out that well, although the photo's a bit better (right click and View for a larger version).  The main thing for the (blurry) video was that I showed it was on the All Good Things cartridge like it was supposed to be.  Next time I'll try doing a second take -- although the scores for the other games are a little larger though, at least -- along with turning the brightness down (which usually helps).

No, you should just be able to download the basic package for free, which is the interface, unless things have changed.  Then when you see a game you want to play, you download it.  It'll be the free version where, if you have a good enough game going on, a score threshold will suddenly kick in and end your game and ask if you want to buy it from there.  Also, every month is a free featured game that you can download and play all you want for free (i. e. no game ending threshold interruptions).  So that's how I'm able to play these, although anyone who has a halfway decent tablet or phone has an advantage over me, since these are being played on a cheap tablet with jerky animation and all :P The family's iPad Mini is much smoother, but that's out of town for the moment.

Right.  The choose game screen is also different than with the original S. Fever too, as well as how the aliens look.

Those are different versions of the game.  My score was *supposed* to be for the "high splitter" version.  I need to have Serious move it.  The game you played was an earlier version where the aliens start off as one horizontal row that multiplies after a certain amount of time; on the high splitter version, they start off as one vertical row that multiplies with the first several times the formation reaches a screen edge.

I figured it'd be good for those not familiar with the game and/or system to include a couple of brief video clips showing the score/title screen together (I MEANT to do this with Wormhole as well, which is also on the same cartridge [Vectopia], but I screwed up and accidentally bumped my controller as I was *trying* to film it, making it advance to where "Wormhole" wasn't showing up on the screen any more, so I wasn't ready!  Heh, so only a photo went up with that submission).

Right click and view photo for a slightly better viewing, but with the score being small it's hard to see anyway.

"Guess it's really no different than having separate categories for things like the Jakks Pacific plug n play controllers"

That's because the games on many of the units play differently anyway, as I saw a video on YouTube of some unit where old Pac-Man patterns didn't work for one of them, but they went back to working with the Retro Arcade Featuring Pac-Man unit that I have (as the YouTuber I saw had both units to compare).  Sounds also differ on many of the games too.

That's Jakks for you, as it took many units before the Retro Arcade Featuring Pac-Man collection came out, which was quite good.  Still totally ruined Xevious though (the only game that I didn't submit a score for on here!) and changed a few minor things in a few of the games, but otherwise I'm happy with my unit.

For the wiz kids on here, if someone could please get past the "core", I'd like to know what happens next: being a vector remake of the arcade classic Scramble (Sixx, this was the game I told you I would submit next), I assume it just starts back over at the beginning, but I'm not sure, as I've never been able to get past that part.

That probably was the "high splitter" version.  Did the aliens split into two if you didn't shoot them right up the middle?  Then that's the same version, if it were in color.  That's just the name of this ROM if you want to make sure you're playing the right game (the original Space Fever was in black and white and the three games played differently).

"And i must confess i didn't check Star Wars out, that sounds like a must."

Did you ever play the original arcade game with the flight yoke controller?  If not, it might not seem that great, as the only time John Dondzila got a bad review for his Vectrex Vecmania compilation was when someone played his S. Wars clone of Star Fire Spirits on an emulator with the keyboard.  You can't play that game (very well) with a keyboard!  If you have though you'd definitely see where the remake is a pretty good complement to the original, although it could have joystick control, I don't know.

"Tried it out (and the other Minionsoft remakes) and must say i think only Frogger was good."

You didn't like Star Wars?  Space Invaders wasn't very good, but he made that in only a day, I believe he said.

"This game was simple just to darn hard even for an old shooter fanatic like me.

Am i doing something wrong?"

You might want to watch the backgrounds pretty closely.  I lost several ships before since I couldn't tell there were birds "walking" around right at my level until I smacked into them.  That's the main thing, I think.

"Maybe it should have Minionsoft in the title as well so people could find it, there's tons of Phoenix remakes on the web?"

I didn't know there were any others online.  I haven't looked.

Re-submittal from my original posting (this was a different game I've since played too), since I accidentally put it under as to being the "Phoenix (web)" platform, which wasn't true: you download the game from the net, but you PLAY it on a PC!  So thanks for people who voted for it the first time around, sorry you have to do it again.  

I also added a second pic taken of the monitor itself this time around though, in case anyone says they can't trust just a screengrab.

Yeah, the guy's done good work, like with Star Wars.  It could crash with no warning though, and the voiceovers can pop up a little too often on the first area of the game, but it's still pretty good though.

"Keep those remakes coming,"

There's another one I have in mind, although I'm not sure if I requested it or not (this one was requested several days ago, but Serious had the game expo to attend, slowing him down a bit, I'm sure!).  I'll wait a few more days I guess.  It's a bit of an unusual one!

"And superb Wikia!"

Thanks!  I did the Vectrex one too :) I'd like to have more than Space Invaders games on BOTSS though, although I do run across some from time to time.  But then I'm not constantly doing articles, plus it'd be good to get more writers on that.

Yeah, I thought getting the blue/2-5x dealies quick was another part, but the thing is, if they're close at the start of a level, sure, I grab them as soon as possible.  However, I'd much rather clear out as many of the Xs as possible around the monster pen before they start coming out, since they move so damn fast.  So for me its a [lack of, once I start clearing them out] quantity of fewer Xs vs. a lower quantity of points deal for me :)

For anyone stating they want a video of this evidence, go here for reference and read the bottom two paragraphs: http://www.highscore.com/scores/ArcadeEmulatedMAME/SpaceFeverspacefevGameB/12952

For anyone that thinks there's a discrepancy with my score on that game being about twice as high on this one, game B is a lot easier.

A few things about the Space Fever games:

The original was just called Space Fever and was in black and white.  However, I’ve seen ROM images where it was supposedly in color.  I don’t know if those were added to the pictures for effect or if that was changed on the ROM, but there’s a few ways to tell which ROM you have (and for which game for you to place scores under): one, the original black and white S. Fever has aliens (the bottom two rows) that look like they’re doing jumping jacks when they move.  Game A is nearly impossible to clear, due to the invaders moving in two separate formations.  In game B, there’s only one row of vertical invaders at the start of a new game, but after a certain amount of time more will appear, and I think on game C it’s just regular Space Invaders.

Then there’s Space Fever (Color), or known as Space Fever High Splitter on here (that’s the name of the ROM for it; in the arcades it was just known as Space Fever).  On game A, the invaders will sometimes drop down two or three rows at a time, then go back UP two or three rows at a time.  On game B, once the lone vertical column of invaders reaches a screen edge, then they’ll multiply (unlike with the original black and white version of the game where the multiplication is time-based), then game C is regular Space Invaders.  The middle two rows of invaders also look like giant crabs.

My top score is at the bottom right of the screen in the last column; I included where it says “high splitter” at the top of the window to show I have the right ROM for the game.  (You might have to right click and then View photo for a better view.)

Also, for those that might think there's a discrepancy with my scores with this and game B (as my game B score is over twice as much), game B's a lot easier and the aliens don't keep on coming closer and closer with the start of a new wave.  There's also far fewer of them at the beginning of a game too.

Then there’s Space Fever (Color), or known as Space Fever High Splitter on here (that’s the name of the ROM for it; in the arcades it was just known as Space Fever).  On game A, the invaders will sometimes drop down two or three rows at a time, then go back UP two or three rows at a time.  On game B, once the lone vertical column of invaders reaches a screen edge, then they’ll multiply (unlike with the original black and white version of the game where the multiplication is time-based), then game C is regular Space Invaders.

My top score is at the bottom center of the screen; I included where it says “high splitter” at the top of the window to show I have the right ROM for the game.  (You might have to right click and then View photo for a better view.)

And then as far as any comments go, there are NOT to be any that states "I think a photo alone isn't sufficient evidence for this score. Video desired.", as there have been several times before.  As I’ve ALSO stated several times before, I’m not working, I don’t have the money for a camera, I’m not working, I don’t have the money for a camera, I’m not working, I don’t have the money for a camera!  See how I can repeat things over and over too?  What, if you repeat this over and over again does that mean a camera will just drop down out of the sky at some point for me to use?  Do you believe if you say “bloody Mary” in front of a mirror three times in a darkened room she’ll appear too?

Obviously people are going to vote how they want, but no repeated comment is not only unnecessary, it’s also abuse.  I don’t appreciate the implication that I’m so stupid I can’t figure out a simple purchase and/or I have ADD.  Just vote.

Is this just like the original?  The version I have on the Retro Arcade Featuring Pac-Man unit is, except that you can't do diaginals (four way joystick, or actually you *can* do diaginals but they're hard to do) and for some dumb reason they made your shots steerable after fired.  Other than that it played exactly the same though.

Thanks!  I could get higher though, but I hadn't played it in a year or more, just went through several games last night and did a bit better as I went along.

Funny how this must be the #1 game on here (as mentioned on the forums the other day)--with the official ports and clones--and I was going to enter a score for this last night, but then I saw where Darrin9999 beat me to the very first one!  So that was ironically funny, so I made sure to do it like I had planned before anyone else did.

The high score screen was too difficult to take a picture of, so I just did a brief movie of it instead (our digital camera only takes 15 second movies max and with no sound).  I also took a frame out as a photo; that was the best I could do.

In my opinion it's probably best to get a shot of this screen, as afterwards it just goes to a blank screen with the high score and the copyright date being all zeroes.  This one at least shows Spike hopping (/hoppin') across the screen, even though he can come out blurry, like he did here.  Well, I didn't have much time to adjust the camera settings or turn the brightness down before the screen went to the other one, so this was about as good as I could do.

This may seem like just another Space Invaders clone at first, but then differences emerge, such as the number of shots you can fire, the number of shots THEY can fire at you, six bunkers, and three different U. F. O.s, two of which buzz right over your ship, one of which (the yellow one, so beware of that!) drops a bomb with a very wide arc to it.

The game can be played here, one of many places: http://www.playfg.com/mars-encounter-game.html

Several things to note here: one, my name is at the bottom ("current player").  My personal best of 161,250 doesn't count, since that was done months ago, before I joined up here.  The "last" and "high" scores are what I'm submitting (74,480).  Also look at the bottom and top of the screen and you'll see it is the windowed version.

Serious, do you have a bunch of stuff slowing down your computer?  Because this and Arcadia run the same here whether being windowed or full screen.

Meh, I wasn't going to turn in a game less than 100,000, but this was the best I could do after many.  I'll beat it at some point if someone else does.

No, I didn't, as the moment I saw there was a score up for it I played a game of it, beat it, and submitted it.  No time to cheat there, but...

"it is too easy to Cheat on this Game and Picture Proof is not sufficient enough to prove if you played without using them. The thing is your score is generally Very Low for you to have used the Glitch/cheat."

...I don't know what the glitch/cheat is for this.  I've played it quite a bit over the years, but never looked for them (as I didn't know there were any).  I just like to play.

"I recommend Video Proof on this Game, but It isn't like people are going to do it... it would be too long (Another Reason I don't submit to this Record Chart)"

I don't think it'd be too long for video proof; even at five million it wouldn't be an hour.  And I don't have a video camera.

Make sure you look in the right spot, since the "Normal game" entry is blurry; the Hard + one isn't.  Right click and view photo for a clearer view of it.

Go here for reference: http://www.highscore.com/scores/Vectrex/Thrust/12045

I had reset my Vectrex for high scores, so note there was no score for this variation.

The score is a bit higher than on a normal game, due to there being a Perfect bonus offered (and I was able to accomplish several times, obviously) that the normal game doesn't have.

Have you played many games of this?  Because I know years ago that, for some reason, part of it didn't work correctly on emulators: the puzzle pegs you picked up were in the same places every time.  If that's still the case, then this game shouldn't be allowed on an emulator, since they're supposed to be random.

Just a heads up, and not dissing you or anything.  It could be this problem was solved a while back.

WARNING: BEWARE to those that are planning on uploading a score, there is a bug in this game where once you save your name, a lot of the time your score will read only 337,000 (?!)!  I ran across this several times over the last couple of weeks (never noticed it before!), so be prepared to get as far as possible, pause the game and take photos then.  If this bug doesn't happen after your game ends, you're lucky!

Anyway, might want to right click and view photo; I hate this font and background, it's a bit hard to see.  Also note my tv is pretty old, hence the middle dark part (not visible to the naked eye but it shows up on camera).

For whoever it is that's been consistantly putting in no votes for these and falsely claiming that the player didn't follow the rules, if that's in regards to the "pro" ranking, that is FALSE.  If you play a game on here a few times and do well, you automatically get that rating.  There is, to the best of my knowledge, no way to reset that.  If there is, then state it in an anonymous comment, I'll remove the photo, reset the game and resubmit a score.

The game does not get any harder; just because it says pro doesn't mean I'm playing at an advanced level, I'm playing at the DEFAULT level.

Note how it clearly reads MAME and Astro Fighter at top left next to flash, along with the high score at center. 

For whoever it is that's so quick to vote no with no reason, consider a few things:

1. I have chronic fatigue, taking a dozen naps a day.  You know how hard it is to do daily things in between naps?  Why would I waste time faking a score?

2. I'm over 40 years old.  I have better things to do.

3. Note that I have HyperCam2 on here.  For the comment saying they'd rather have a video, this slows down MAME and the video comes out jittery, which could also raise doubts.  If you have some tips in regards to having it run smoothly I'm all eyes. BUT

4. Saying "just pay for it, that runs better" (note: I don't know if that's it or not, it's just a guess) or "webcams aren't expensive, so get one of those" aren't options when I'm not working.

5. You aren't HERE while all I'm doing is playing a game and following the rules with no cheats or anything.  Seriously, THINK all this over.

It seems to me this is in the right spot, as the rules state for it to be played on actual hardware (i. e. a cab), although I can understand where people are tetering on this issue.

Do you have a YouTube channel?  I'm not much for putting my e-mail address up in public, but if you have one you could PM me there, e-mail me your photos and I could right them up and send them back to you.

Oh, and who is the guy here in Houston?  I know of quite a few coin-op related organizations here :)

This is probably one of their best, as only Xevious was totally ruined, other games only have minor issues, plus the joystick could've been a little better too.  Still give it an 8/10 though, personally.

Yeah, I don't think there is a way, unless it was just left out, like with the extra speed boost on the Sega 32X Shadow Squadron game.  I don't think there is a way to get past the final level without using it, yet they left it out of the instructions.  I didn't know about it, nor how to beat that last level until years later when this internet thingy started getting all over the place.

Hi Congslop (interesting name!), nice meeting you.

Looks like it'll be the same thing when I enter a score for the Hitting Home Runs (or whatever it's called) entry on here: two out of the three people currently holding records have at least one no vote there too, again, I assume because it says "pro" as their status.  No way to reset that to the best of my knowledge, and the Hitting Home Runs game doesn't get any harder than when you first start playing it (I think), even if you're at a pro level.

@DarrylB:

Actually I think I know what the deal is: in the photo, it reads "pro".  In case the no voter thought "the rules state to play on the DEFAULT setting, NOT 'advanced' or 'pro' settings", then they're still WRONG.

Even though your rank increases with the better you get, the game itself does not change.  (It does for the boxing and baseball games though.) This is also STILL the default setting because there is no way -- to the best of my knowledge -- to reset the game back to the very beginning and you can start over.  I can look through the instructions again but I'm pretty sure you can't do this, as that's one of the few things I don't like about Wii Sports: when things start getting harder and harder you're stuck there; you can't go back to the beginning/the easier settings.

If that's not it, then I don't know what it is.

I mean, seriously?  One person is right and THREE people who posted scores did them incorrectly?  Sorry that I don't have the money for a time machine to take me back to when the family first got the Wii and I made myself not play it, knowing that highscore.com would be along several years later and then I'd be accused of cheating. (sarcasm)

Someone care to discuss this?

I get a "no" vote stating "Submitter did not follow High Score's rules."

Excuse you?  Here are the rules:

Rules: Game must be played on a Nintendo Wii compatible console. Play with default settings unless otherwise specified. 1 credit. No saves. No continues. 1 player mode only. No hacked files or cheat codes.

I played it on a physical Wii (the family's).  I played with default settings.  One credit only, no saves or continues (since the game doesn't have any of that), one player mode only, nothing hacked or cheated. 

My name is on the photo too, in case they were going to try to bring that up.

This was pretty tough to do, as I tried taking like 15 different photos, but the flash kept on obscuring my name (you can see a better shot with the badge I always use here: http://www.highscore.com/score/?s=9227).  I tried it with that, writing my name on a piece of paper, taking the shot from different angles, etc., and this was the best that it came out.  (But then later I remembered it ASKS if you want to submit your score; good going!  Could've just gone for a straight screenshot there!  Oh well, I might not've done as well on my next game, so...) But the camera's like 12 years old and one of the buttons fell off the control panel, so now I can't work the menu to tone down the flash. :|

Anyway, I invite retro gamers of all sorts to give this a try, especially for fans of Dig Dug and Lode Runner.  Granted, the goals and gameplay are different but I think you'll dig it (sorry :P ).

And GO TO HELL! (if you can make it :) )

@thedarkbanshee:

Thanks banshee :) Yes, beforehand there were just two listings for this game: the US (/crashes on level 13) version and the European version (which I assume never ends; I read on the Vectrex news group years ago someone got to level 90 or something).  This is the last, mostly recently added one, and is worldwide, as someone on my vector gaming forums stated his instructions to the game are exactly like mine: "space dust" and "alien forces" are mentioned (which are in this version only).  For many years I thought only my/a later version of the Vectrexes made here in the States had that stuff.  I forgot who posted it but he doesn't live in this country!  (Maybe France?)

I've yet to give anyone a 'no' vote myself.  I know Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, Sega 32X, CD, Vectrex and arcade stuff the most.  That's a lot of blanks I don't know about!

Yep, that score's legit!  For those that don't know, here are the several versions of Mine Storm:

1. The original that crashes if someone clears Mine Field 13

2. A later version (this one) that goes up to level 89.  Weird things happen, like the game skips a lot of Fields (there's no level 14 here, as it skips from 13 to 15), there's added space dust and alien forces that are worth several thousand points each, hence insane scores such as this one, plus you can't get past level 89

3. The European version without skipping Mine Fields/no space dust or alien forces.  This is believed to be the same game as the very rare Mine Storm 2 cart.

I also made a similiar score back in November, which can be seen here: http://vectrex.wikia.com/wiki/File:Darrylb500mstorm2013.jpg

Yeah, you're right about the reactor, it takes you straight to the next solar system.

On the Vectrex Gravitrex clone, though, you HAVE to destroy the reactor on each level to advance to the next one.  It's mandatory there!

Yes indeed scores this high are possible (voted, by the way), as my personal high score is 999,959 (no, I couldn't do 999,999 because I was on the Grid Bug screen and they're 50 points each!).  That was back in the day, though, as I played it a few years ago at a gaming expo, had forgotten the Light Cycle patterns and all and couldn't even get 100,000!

Mine Storm had several versions: the one that crashes on level 13, another one goes to level 89 (the one I have, with a lot of weird stuff in it, such as Space Dust and alien forces), and others can go on forever (which I think is the same game as Mine Storm II).

Heh, well it could be worse!  I kept on having to start over, missed not having the Pac Boosters (argh!  So slow!), then was going "get 50,000 for an extra life, get 50,000..."; nope!  That's all the other variations!  They give you extras at 50,000 and possibly every 50,000 afterwards, I can't recall which.  On this Arcade (default) setting you get the one extra at 10,000 and that's it.  So I gave up then when I lost my last life; I doubt I can do much better than this.

Good luck with your game though!
