    Robotron marathon right now 8-31-14

    David Gomez from Houston, TX is currently at 89million, playing on 1-credit since yesterday.

    In a couple of hours he should be approaching the 99,975,000 "extra life bonanza" where you will hear him gain an extra life for everything that gets hit. and after 100mil he will not earn any extra lives until the prior earned lives are caught up.

    a bit after 1pm central, David passed Eric Ginner's 112million multi-credit score in the TG arcade marathon database.
    Eric completed his attempt on 8-30-82, almost 32 years to the day when David did it.

    Eric's attempt was done as part of the TG competition of CA vs NC.

    UPDATE- David played to 125,010,125 in 29 hours of 1-credit continuous gameplay. woot!

    Well, there you go! The one credit score to beat is 125,010,125. Next person will probably get 150,010,150
