    ^Yes, good point, and I think it warrants further discussion. Thanks for getting it going!

    System: ColecoVision
    Game: Decatholon - 400m Dash
    Runner: Todd Rogers

    The current time is listed as 36.8.
    This time is impossible as there are no times with a second decimal place of '0'.
    The best time you can get is 38.68, which requires frame perfect mashing with room for only a couple of missed inputs.

    It seems likely that this one is a typo. Whoever input the score probably meant to put 38.68 but missed the first 8.

    Super Return of the Jedi (SNES)

    Brave Difficulty, Any Button Configuration [No Codes, Passwords or Continues Allowed!]Special Rules: You may only collect the million-point bonus for blowing up the Death Star's core ONCE!

    Got two questions on this one. I've played through this game numerous times and I would like to know how you get this so called Million point bonus. Maybe somebody can show me a video or something.

    Second question. Just wondering if leeching is allowed on this one because I don't see any way of getting a million on this one unless you repeatedly kill the regenerating enemies or that this Death Star core bonus does exist.

    Also want to add that the Wii virtual console version does not mention this Death Star Core bonus at all.

    RTM REPLY - that score has been part of the TG database for a good 10+ years, I think, regardless of what the import date might indicate. Such a shame that there are so many typos from careless referees back in the day...quite a shame indeed.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't appear to be the case. Todd himself entered 36.80 as his score/time on his personal scoreboard.

    The entry is unchanged two years later, even after updating the tables to indicate it is a TG #1 score:
