    Yeah I've watched that several times, but I just cannot seem to get the fish to follow me to be hit by the roller from the second screen onwards.

    Well there's time to work it out. Also someone may want to give you a hint. We'll see ...

    How is Terence's submission not deemed as leeching?

    Looks like point-pressing to me. I could be wrong, but I don't believe the technique he's using works indefinitely on a single board so he gets what he can and then proceeds to the next board.

    The timing is a bit tricky. You want the fish to be following you but at a decent distance. If they're too close, they'll just run the other way when you use the roller. If you have the right distance, then when you use the roller going left to right, immediately hold the joystick down and then move back up. You'll hit the wall above you and be in position to use the roller going back right to left. Also remember when trying to crush the fish to let them get real close to the roller before moving since if you go too early they'll just run away and you can't catch them.

    Without Terence's technique, it's generally safe to crush 4 fish per screen with the roller without much trouble (once you get used to it). His technique pushes this to 8 or 10.

    "Point pressing" can only be done against a timer.
    He makes no effort to move to the next round, and there are no more point increases. He hangs around to exploit the multiplied scores, even though there is nothing more to do to complete the level.
    Don't get me wrong, I admire his skill. I've wondered this for a few years.

    Then all Asteroids marathon scores should be thrown out since they were all done with UFO hunting. There's no timer there so it must be leeching by your definition.
