    Yes on the numbers.

    VERY NICE score, Don. Congrats!

    It's unfortunate that the hit box is off in this game. I think it's off on arcade also?

    There IS a strategy that I read years ago to increase score. I can't remember where I seen it? I'm sure that RTM might have explained it, at the least he provided a link to it.

    Thanks John!

    It's been so long since I've played the arcade game that I don't recall if the hit box is the same as MAME.

    Yes, I believe there's a thread somewhere in which RTM describes the strategy but I think there's still some luck involved due to the randomness of the white plane. From the other scores being posted, though, there are some excellent low-white scores (like, 120-140 range). I'm fairly happy with anything below 200 per canyon for the white plane.
