Judging from this picture, it looks like you also like to start at level 6.  You're apparently much better than me at cruising through the teen levels, however.  I keep getting stopped around 14 or 15.  My best is only 219,247 (started at 6 and stopped at 14).  I used to think that was an impressive score, then I see you guys on this site blowing it away.  lol

Sweet giant sloth from ice planet Hoth!  I didn't even know it was possible to start on higher levels like that!  You play a game for so many years and think you know all there is to know about it, then you read about this!

I'm going to try this trick you mention to start on higher levels.  I imagine it will be a beating at first, though.

Okay, this isn't a case of throwing me into a pool to see if I can swim; it's a case of throwing me off a cliff to see if I can fly!  I'm having mixed results so far.  Started out at level 19 and got only 3 lines, so I decided to switch to level 14 and I managed to get 52 lines.  After successfully getting 52 lines on level 14, I struggled to even get 10 lines the next few times.  I then struggled on level 11 as well to even reach 20 lines (managed it a few times).

I had a bunch of issues of Nintendo Power back in the day, but I always skimmed through the games I didn't have.  The older me now would've had more appreciation for reading them in their entirety back in the day.

I don't remember how early I started, but I do remember my first issue ever.  My first issue was black and looked like a dossier; I believe it had the word CONFIDENTIAL on it.  I remember in that issue, there were pictures showing the glitch in Rambo on how to bypass the chopper fight and just glitch through the prison walls.  That is my earliest memory of having Nintendo Power.

I remember the Nester comics always pitching the new games that came out (StarTropics, Battletoads, Lone Ranger, etc.).  I liked the fact that some issues were solely dedicated to a single game (I had the Final Fantasy issue, for example).  I wish I would have kept those magazines.  Not only as a Nintendo fan, but also as one who would have liked to sell some of those issues for some nice $$$ today.
