    Juan, it is really nice to see that you have mastered screen shots finally. Do you mind sharing what software you ended up using? I am not familiar with Ubuntu, almost all of my Linux experience is at the command line.

    I am sure Al Birmman can beat this score and beat Rick Forthergill TG WR 4,201,875,if anybody can do it, he can, without a doubt. The game resembles the famous classic arcade games Space Invaders,Asteroids and Missle Command, the game has traits form each of these games, like Move side to side, asteroids, multiplier & guided missile.

    The game gives a player a extra ship at every 1,000 points. I saw that extra ship counter was way over 300 +, I wonder, what is the maximum amount of ships that a player can have 999, 1,000 plus, look at Q*Bert.

    This the first video game I ever seen that you lose points when you lose a ship. 600 points if your multiplier is 6X.

    That being said, for each multiplier from 1 X to 6X. a player would lose 100 ,200,300,400 500 and 600 based on the multiplier.

    One thing for sure, a player does not want to take too long of a break,especially on a marathon WR attempt, a player could lose 100k of points in 10 minutes estimated.

    100% it was done on Button-3. Rick beat his score (thankfully we have the WR at TG).

    Defender; you hit the nail on the head !!! You Cannot take breaks on the marathon and beat the WR. You lose too many men and too many points! That's what makes the game so brutal. This is one of the most prestigious WR's on the console.

    Since that 1.8 Mill score only has a screenshot, I have to assume he paused his game many times getting there. It's still a great score, but what would his score have been if he didn't pause it? Maybe a million. Who knows?

    For me to beat the WR; not only do I have to get my skill level a little higher ... I definitely have to prep to marathon. It's "Level-10" intensity for 15 hours. And breaks can't be for more than a minute-or-two. It "May" be the most prestigious WR on the Intellivision console.
