What the heck is it with me struggling with this game and everybody else making it look so easy?  My best on this is 13,000 on easy difficulty.  I can play River Raid as well as anybody else but always struggle with this one.

Great score!

@DuggerVideoGames:

My personal best is about 80K on a real console, but I don't have an evidence for that. I don't think that I'm really good at this game.

I don't have a special technique, just pure reflexes. In this game I often need several attempts, most of them with poor results, and then you have one good run. But in the range of more than 50 K the game is really hard.

There's an interesting technique, not for me, but for professional players, who achieved (world) records on Arcade. They don't shoot all the mushrooms, so that the screen is dense with them and the snake has only one to go down, and then is easily to shoot.

You can watch on Youtube.
