I think what makes more inclined to say "emulator" is just the picture quality. Composite video has a tendency not to look quite as clear.

Since you know Harry, I'm assuming you've seen "Ecstasy of Order". If not you should check it out.

Without a visible power cycle, it's hard to know if this is the original console or an emulator. Nice score though!

Note that the game rolls over at 1 million points and the million is dropped on the final scoreboard.

Trickster is correct. I should have added this from my submission at TG:

I was going for a maxout score on this - turns out that it keeps going over 1 million points. After 1 million points you no longer earn extra lives. I ended up quitting with 3 lives remaining just due to being weary of the game.

Because the lives run out and there is a timer, it's technically point-pressing as opposed to leeching. Boring though, very boring.

Avatar of DonAtreides

That's correct. It's technically "point-pressing" because of the time limit. Just like pressing the barrel stages for points in Donkey Kong.
