History is made!!!
On March 26, 2016 Kazuto Kondo
from Japan, also known as keke_luck
submitted a world record score performance for the arcade version of - Road Runner [Atari] with a score claim of 2,407,700 points!
If the score claim was proven valid, it would smash the previous score of 2,287,420 set by Mark Haber back on December 10, 1986, which is part of the elite few of longest standing video game world records of all time!
The Twin Galaxies expert community hotly debated and closely reviewed Kazuto's score performance and we are happy to announce that it has been ACCEPTED!!!!
Kazuto had this to say in his adjudication thread:
And,I'll be back again someday. At that time, it brings 3 million points.
Smashing a 30 year old record is no small achievement and we are excited to see international competitors like Kazuto participating and elevating the competitive bar.
A 2.4MM score is incredible, but a 3MM score would be out of this world! We all look forward to that submission!
