421 Project - G01 - Gangster AlleySo i recently found a list of the 421 "official" Atari 2600 games and I decided I was going to go through the whole list randomly and try for World Records in each of the games.
The process is, I use random.org to pick a number. Match that up to my list and then try to acquire a copy on eBay. I do have a Harmony but I'd rather work with real hardware where ever it is possible. I'm picking games 3 to 4 games out so that I'm not just sitting waiting for a new game to arrive.
Right now I am only going to pick a number of a game with a WR already established for the first few unless something really peaks my interest.
The first game picked was #324 - Gangster Alley. The WR is a 7 way tie Max Out of 99,990. The game ends with a winning screen at that point so no way to continue. It took 2 runs of the game to get the WR so not a hard one to start with but a fun, interesting game. A full run took me 50 minutes.
I've captured both a direct feed and a webcam version. Adjudication link is:
