  1. 1,000,000 Point Club

    04-24-2011, 05:31 PM
    The T.G. forums seem pretty dead lately so I decided to make a post. :mrgreen:

    I was browsing KLOV and a discussion on how great a 1,000,000 point game is on an arcade machine.

    Now since a score that high can vary between "not a big deal" and "fantastic" depending on what game it is achieved on, generalizing wouldn't be right, but I thought I'd start a thread here inquiring what games everyone has scored over that threshold on since I have nothing better to do at the moment. :mrgreen:

    So I'll start.

    Mario Bros.
    Vs. Super Mario Bros.
    Pac-man Plus
    Indiana Jones
    Nova 2001
    Satan's Hollow

    Marathonable Games
    *Star Trek

    Outside of a couple of my best games not allowing such a high score I have a funny feeling I'm missing a game or two, but for what it's worth, this is my list.

    Actually most of my 1m point games were achieved in the early to mid 80s. Since the turn of the century I've actually only played and scored over 1m on Indiana Jones, Star Trek, and Satan's Hollow. (But that should change soon). :mrgreen:

    My Friends and I during our game playing days at the arcade had the million faces club, which we would basically try and achieve everytime we played Street Fighter 2 (can be applied to the first 3 - world warrior, champion edition and hyper fighting). It was pretty fun! To achieve "faces" ment you could not lose a round (if you had some bad luck and missed the perfect you had to suck it up and try not lose the round all-together). The end credits would also do a special "faces" ending in-place of the normal end credits. Not all faces ending would result in a million points, in fact only the most skilled get over a million, hence the million faces club! NOTE: it is most challenging and fullfilling to complete the feat on sf2 hyperfighting.

    This is different to the games you mention, as completing a million faces game of Street Fighter 2 takes about 20 minutes, However I can remember a mate of mine never being able to achieve it, even after playing after work fairly constantly.

    I'll keep my list pre-1990

    Return of the Jedi
    Galaga 88
    Time Pilot
    Mario Bros.
    vs. Super Mario Bros
    Twin Cobra
    Sky Shark
    Cobra Command
    Haleys Comet
    Spy Hunter
    Star Wars
    Food Fight
    Bubble Bobble
    Time Soldiers
    Gun Smoke
    Super Contra

    This was just off the top of my head. I'm sure there are many more. I'd have to look at a full list of games to remember most of them.

    If you need me, I'll be on the 7th floor.

    Very small list here (all in MAME unless noted otherwise):

    Asteroids (Marathon settings)
    Galaga (Arcade, standard fire)
    Joust (Marathon settings)
    Pac-Man (Arcade 3+1, MAME 5+1)
    Q*bert (Marathon settings)

    I'm sure I could add Pac-Man Plus to this list if I gave it some attention. Perhaps I will put it on my "todo" list. :)

    I'd love to see a million-plus Ms. Pac-Man score but, given what I know about the code governing the fruit distribution, getting one million is highly unlikely (not impossible ... just improbable).

    Keeping it more modern games:

    CarnEvil (1,735,876)
    Silent Sillouette 2 (1,002,009)
    Fast And Furious*
    Fast And Furious: Tokyo Drift*

    *Not really an achievement considering the game maxes out at $99,999,999, but still takes some time lol
