I own like 4 of these things. I keep finding them in swap shops and thrift stores. There all in really good condition too. I managed to put up basically a million, even though it was very cumbersome to play. I'm right handed and the button is on the left side for one, and two, it's too bulky to hold in one hand and play with like the Atari 2600 controller so I had to sit on my floor and put the joystick between my legs and then fire cross-handed. Wish I would have gotten a pic of that. :)

@TheGalagaKing: I have ro play crosshanded as well, just can't get that fire speed that my right hand can pull off with my left hand. Great score! Is this the max you can get?

@Scorechaserpony: When I got this score on this system, I knew the game would actually continue on, most likely to stage 255 which is technically the kill screen. I just decided to put up the score that I did because there was no score closest to mine at the time and I knew I would eventually revisit this one at a later date that would require me to play for a few hours in order to reach the kill screen which I definitely plan on doing in the near future. What kind of scores are you able to get?

@TheGalagaKing: 78k is my current record. I wanted to at least break 100 before posting a score. As much as i love Galaga, it's not my strong suit. Got any tips?

@Scorechaserpony: In my original question I had meant if your score was the highest the system could register ^^

@Scorechaserpony: I have a YouTube channel with several dozen videos of me playing various versions of Galaga. Specifically Mame and arcade are my forte, but I play it on the PlayStation 2 Playstation 3 and other consoles. My videos will show all kinds of strategies that I use every time I play that have been able to get me the scores that I've been getting. Granted, I've also been playing it for 38 years. But everyone I sent to my channel to look at the videos, have come back and said that they've improved their scores. Hopefully later on this evening, I will have uploaded my recent world record score that I did on mame specifically on five men only settings where I reached 6.3 million in the process. My YouTube channel is The_Galaga_Ki g.

@Scorechaserpony: I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the game will continue to at least the kill screen which is stage 255. Out of all the years playing Galaga on Many systems, the only two that I can think of where the score locked up at 999,990 is the game boy version and the world's largest Pac-Man arcade game. All the other ones continued even if the score rolled over, it still continued to count.
