    (Arcade News) John McCann Destroys Gorf... AGAIN

    I would like to congratulate John McCann for his amazing score on the Gorf 6 ship version as he comes close to doubling his previous score of 621,690. After reaching 728 missions and playing around 6 hours he finished with a new world record score of 1,153,710. That’s just 89,670 pts. shy of doubling his old score set back in 10/05/2008. This is also the first time a verified score of over a million pts. has been scored on Gorf.

    Nice job! :shock:

    Wowsers! Never was expecting to hear of a score over 1 Million! Does it roll or keep counting?

    Congratulations on this John!

    The score rolls over. 727 full missions / screens though. And this game has a small scoring average as it gives out 50 here and 100 there, ohhh, there is a 300 shot! Yep, took a long time to get a million.

    Yeah, like Stephen said, it rolls over at 1M. The missions counter rolls every 100. Yeah, it was a long game; my toes were numb at the end....lol
