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.

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.

Well one thing I never noticed back in the day is that the game doesn't get any harder actually, the aliens don't come closer and closer with each progressive wave like with most Invaders games in general.  With this variation, they always stay on the same level.

when i play they end up starting down quite near the barriers, then get lower, and eat through the barrier?
check at 5:55.

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.

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