@atari2600forever:

I went to the bathroom once. There's a point somewhere in the recording where I take a break that's bit over a minute

JacobZu7zu7 (Atari Age Member and 2600 / 7800 HSC Ex-Moderator) said about PAUSING on Astroblast during the Atari 2600 Knockout 2012 at High Score Club:

"Yes that would be legal, for about 1-5 mins, respectably.

Such as, if a bathroom break is needed, or to shake your hand from cramps, it's ok... but no long lunch breaks etc...it must be a session of gaming, not to "vacation" between each 10ks or something."

For your 8-hour marathon, usage of pause is LEGAL at my own discretion on Astroblast! With this consideration I voted YES!

@S.BAZ:

Practice with the right difficulty set to A. It sets the game's difficulty at the highest (equivalent of when you hit 50,000pts on Game B) and play with a good pair of paddle controllers. Once you get good enough on Game A to stay around 90 to 80 lives you should be good enough to marathon this game. yesangel

Or you can practice on Game B if you're not used to everything possibly being at the highest speed.

yes

I had it as a kid and just played it a little for something different, whenever I got tired of other games.  I think I didn't know I could play it with paddles...
