About as high a score as I can record with photo evidence alone, since the score display rolls over at a million.

The photo incorrectly indicates 'ColecoVision hardware' where it should say 'ColecoVision Flashback' hardware.

I never played the ColecoVision version, but that looks like a fantastic score for Venture!

the 2600 version is super-tough.

Playing on my own, my usual goal for the Coleco version of Venture is to fill out the treasure screen progressing through each skill level -if I can fill it all out on skill 4, then I 'win'.

What makes the Flashback version unique is simply coming to grips with the idiosyncratic controller, which has a fairly different feel compared to the original thanks to the much shorter joystick shaft and overall looser feeling. It also has a kind of clicky aspect to it that reminds me of the thumbstick on the NeoGeo Pocket Color, and once I treated it that way, I had much better luck playing with it.
