    (Arcade WR News) Discs Of Tron Crushed!

    Paul Hornitzky from Australia has absolutely manhandled Discs Of Tron by putting up a score of 589,900. This beats David Bagenski's score of 418,200, that has stood strong since June 28, 1986, by a total of 171,700 points!

    All I can say is WOW!

    Re: (Arcade WR News) Discs Of Tron Crushed!

    Could you imagine if they didn't rush Tron out and Discs Of Tron was also part of Tron instead of being it's own game? Tron would probably be the best game ever made or certainly one of the top 5 or so. At least I think this is how the story goes as DOT was suppose to be the 5th game of Tron.

    Yup, I recall reading that as well. Both very good games would have become one uber-game.

    awesome score...always loved this game...
    got to have ridiculous amount of patience and good defense to get even to 100k...can't imagine how long some rounds take when reaching higher levels to get up around 400-500+k.

    Cool

    Greetings great TG members ...

    I have been playing Discs of Tron arcade recently ...

    Back in 1984 my highest score was 765,000, played on a beautiful EDOT.
    Then in 2011 I took up video gaming again and managed to get an upright DOT arcade machine and scored 589,900, as per Stephen Boyer's starting post.
    (Thanks for the write up Stephen!).

    Well last night, I managed to score 1,039,700 on TG tournament settings (actually slightly harder than TG setting, played at difficulty 4).
    4 starting men and 2 extra on score for a total of 6 to hit the million was the challenge.

    When TG accept score submissions again, I will send in the game play. But to share the news and the moment, check out what happens when you score a million on DOT on your last man (yes I get pretty excited). And Stephen Boyer asked me 3 years ago if I could be the first person ever to make that million. Thanks Stephen for the motivation, yes it is completed! I can't post a meaningful screenshot of the final score because you need to see this video to see the reason why ...
