@hughes10: If you either zoom into the attached picture or watch the video, you can see the score progressing. Ive timestamped each 10K points after 90K so people wouldn't be confused

@hughes10: Besides ... if it took me an hour and 39 minutes to reach 27K on this game, I probably would consider never playing it again LOL!!

Like other Atari 2600 titles, Gorf does not "roll over" to 0 until you hit 700,000. Instead, when you reach 100,000, Gorf displays a modified digit Sprite in the 10,000s place (left-most score digit). That "symbol" changes every 10,000 points. You'll notice if you look closely at the picture that the "2" in the 10,000s place is different than the "2" a couple of places to it's right side.

I meant to say "UNLIKE other Atari 2600 titles"

@ZilchSr: ... and the "2" in the 10,000s place is actually the last 3 lines of an inverted "6" Sprite on top of the first 5 lines of a normal "6" sprite.
