    Hi, this Tapeworm run was done on January 21st, 2018 on diff BB. Diff B (high calorie bean) is considered harder than diff A as it adds 2 lengths to your tail versus one length per bean in diff A. This game goes up in increments that keep your score ending with 5 or 0, but this final score ends up ending with a 9. You don't see this 9 until you finish the game, just like the Mythicon games, Mangia, Chopper Command and Megamania.
    Final score: 9,999
    Run begins: 9:25
    Run ends, kill screen: 49:39
    Trying to show diff switches with my busted arm: 50:05
    Please excuse me yelling info to my wife @ 24:48 - 26:26

    Nice!!!
    I couldn't control the snake on hardware for anything, the game was/is fun, but Man, it's tough!!!

    Awesome, insane that honest to goodness first time max-outs are still happening today, and by people I call my friends, Just Crazy!

    I would have thought pressing the whole way would be the way to go, but you seemed focused on level completion to me.

    Echoing Nads-being the first to beat a game must feel insane, is now on my "list".
    :)
    Thanks for the Shout-Out! Thinking/hoping my run a while back put this one in your mind to give another go!
    Accepted!!!
