ok the next one I'll make video & go for over 1mil if someone else doesn't do it first

the little ones are the last type of demon, then it repeats.  they're the hardest too, so whenever you get past them you get kind of a break.  many times I am almost killed off at that point then I can build up my extra lives before getting to the little ones again.

@S.BAZ:

I do recall restarting the set of demons now that you mention it. I always run out of lives as you can only hold 5 at a time though. I could go way further if the game allowed more then 5 lives like lazer blast as where you earn it you still get it. Then again I like the challenge but I tend to loose like 3 lives at a time after earning about 10 lives even though max is 5 thus I would be left with 2 after all that.

How long does it take to get to this score? I can only get to about 8-10.000. I need to improve a lot.

Tha game is fun though. And mode 3 and 5 also a good pick. I'll try them too.

@rawbits:

it takes a good while, i don't remember exactly.  I think about an hour, or a little less.

that's the hardest part (how long it takes), even when you get good at everything.  you have to keep on your toes the WHOLE time or you find yourself suddenly losing all your lives at once!  you can't just get good at it & get into a groove & then keep going on autopilot like some atari games.  

imo, it was an excellent choice to limit the amount extra lives you can save up to keep it challenging.

I'm still planning to roll game 5A which I failed to do last year playing in the AtariAge tournament.  I also want to top my record because the evidence i submitted for it was very poor (it was before I cared about my legit %).  Surprisingly, it didn't get any no-votes even though it was begging for them  x)

in case you didn't see it, here's a new Demon Attack score I submitted (game 3):

http://highscore.com/scores/Atari2600/DemonAttack/24604

with video & played til it crashes.   looks like I was mistaken before when we talked about it.  IIRC, i think i said it could be rolled before crashing.

@S.BAZ: Thanks! Im glad someone took the time as I happen to have scepticism. BTW my lack of scores latly is the fact I got 2 main jobs and 2 side jobs all part time. 7 days a week of work. I finnaly got a job huray but not really since its all part time. So do not expect scores from me.
