This is game #1, difficulty switches in the "A" (expert) position (as you can see the buttons are extended in the pic, which means "A"). This slows down the speed of your own missiles. It's not a big deal on the earlier screens, but as the missiles start raining down more quickly, it becomes very difficult to aim low enough to hit them. I mean you almost have to aim at the bottom of the screen, to hit missiles that only just entered at the top smiley Would be easier with another game mode that has fast cursor control (game 1 is slow cursor movement). Oh well. I'm pleased with this score.

You got my vote of being a legit score, way to go!  You're the first I've seen using an Atari Flashback too!

Atari 2600's aren't exactly falling from the trees here in Perth, Australia smiley They can be expensive so I went for the Flashback option for now.
