It might always be cool out there on the slopes, but that doesn't mean that the leaderboard competition won't heat up with a new record - and more!

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night shall keep gamers from their scheduled records – and we have the proof! In this installment of the Scoreboard Spotlight, we'll solve some puzzles, break the ice, go for a spin, become a User, and enjoy the great outdoors, so read on!


Belfast_Chief – Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4 PSN) – Fastest Victory

In December 2016, Belfast_Chief rolled up his sleeves for an intense battle against Master TetriBot playing Tetris Ultimate for the PlayStation 4 PSN. Master TetriBot is well, a CPU master at playing Tetris but it turns out that humans can still beat machines as Belfast_Chief used his wits to play a slow and deliberate game as TetriBot dropped the pieces at a furious clip. As a result, the CPU ran out of playfield room first, giving Belfast_Chief a fastest victory of 45 seconds. 

Matthew Felix  –  Disney's The Little Mermaid II Pinball Frenzy (Nintendo Game Boy) – Points

Matthew Felix became part of our world as he freed Ariel's daughter Melody from her icy prison in the Game Boy release Disney's The Little Mermaid II Pinball Frenzy. Ursula's sister Morgana was back to seek revenge on the Mermaid household but Matthew wasn't going to stand for it with a high score on the line, which he achieved by hitting 165,000,000 points for a 3-way tie at the top of the leaderboard.

Super_LBN_Cars –  Fast and Furious Super Cars (Arcade) – Fastest Race - Chicago

Super-LBN_Cars decided to do some high-speed shopping at the local mall after hours as he cruised to a new TG record on Fast and Furious Super Cars. After dropping by the mall, Super_LBN_Cars continued his night-time tour of the Windy City by visiting some spectacular landmarks before a big stadium finish in 1:25.08. 

Rickster8 – Maze-a-TRON Reloaded (Intellivision) - Fastest Time

Rickster8 was locked in a race against time to earn a victory for the Users playing Maze-A-TRON Reloaded for the Mattel Intellivision. In this homebrew update, Rickster8 didn't search out the high score but battled the clock in order to defeat MCP (Master Control Program) in the fastest time possible, which he did with an inaugural submission of 3:30.

Theradiocal – Cool Boarders 3 (PlayStation) – Fastest Completion

Theradiocal put on a beauty of a show with a gnarly wintery outing on Cool Boarders 3 for the PlayStation. Taking the lead right out of the gate, Theradiocal kept her focus on cool moves with lots of speed behind them as she flew down the Alps course on Rookie settings to take a final time of 1:49.3, edging out the previous record of 1:53.3 set in September 2023.


This covers our Scoreboard Spotlight for this week. As a reminder, these were just a few of exceptional records that were adjudicated and accepted recently. Every record that made it through verification and landed on our leaderboards has a well-deserved place in the Twin Galaxies gaming pantheon.

Keep scoring high, finishing fast, and game on!
