I have nobody to compete against on this ancient, arcade machine. I'm trying to teach one of my nephews just to have somebody to play against....I play him left-handed, although I'm right-handed, well, rather ambidextrous... I have to feign mistakes to let him play more frequently. I could easily score 250,000 left-handed if I played straight up. I can make over 500,000 when I play my very best right-handed. My games take 3-5 hours. Sometimes my games take several days as I have a lock-up hiding place I can use for extended breaks on the 7th, 11th, and 15th screens.
Is there anybody out there that can compete with me? I've owned my Jr. Pacman since the mid-80's. In all that time I've only had one opponent remotely capable of defeating me. He could clear the screen but he couldn't score the points that I extract per screen. I won by over 100,000 . Back then, breaking 400,000 was a good score for me. Now, I'm not impressed with myself unless I make 475,000. I never thought I'd break 500,000 but I finally did a few months back. I barely missed a second half-million game recently....ended 497,xxx .... :cry:
I've never played the high-speed version. I believe I could do rather well at that. If my chip ever dies, I'll get one of those multi-game chips put in that has all versions of Pacman fast and slow and a bunch of other nonsense.
"...is there nobody on planet U'Houston that can even challenge me..." General Zod said it first but now I'm asking. I'd love to play somebody good, again, someday....??? :?:
