I used to have the world title in 2014 with a score of 51,540 points, until I got bumped into 3rd place, my current ranking on Jr. Pac-Man since 2015, by NorthCoastGamer & S.BAZ.  I figured it's time to update my score now with 60,360 and reclaim my "World Title Trophy"  & position @ highscore.com.  I know a lot of you might attempt to take me down, but for how long can I keep my title this time?

Thanks for the compliment. I look forward to see your score!  I believe Jr. Pac-Man is quite simply one of the most impressive games in the 2600's library.  The fun factor is strong on this title, for fast action, awesome gameplay, and a stiff challenge.  The ghost are more accurate with better color, better artificial intelligence, & Jr. Pac-Man does not die, when intially taged (more arcade like). 

From my own personal experice and on extra rare occasions, I believe you can go through the ghost too (like the arcade Pac-Man) or was I staying up too late playing Jr. Pac-Man on Atari?

By the way, for a while, I believed how bizarre (with knowing the Jack Tremial take over) that the Atari 2600 was getting a new lease of life and realized that General Computer Company (GCC), were the guys making some great hardware and software for the later years of the Atari.

Check out the link at the bottom for a cool keynote speach video.  This video covers a lot of profounding info on GCC!  By they way, who was the actual programer was for the Atari 2600 Jr. Pac-Man?  Congradulations for GCC for giving the green light to make this game a 16k, unlike Pac-Man which got only 4k, right?  Also, GCC did Ms. Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 as well!  I believe most if not all the GCC games & hardware for Atari were done very well.

I actually saw a presentation at CGE in Las Vegas.  He signed an Atari 7800 for me.  Yes, Mr. Golston and his team were amazing.  They were on the east coast and was not at the home office.  Atari really screwed themselves with greed.  TY for the post.
