    Incredible!
    Over a million and still catching most of the Gremlins!!!

    That was the part that got me, after a few waves I couldn't catch them at all. I liked the Spike portion, deciding which order to effectively take them out, but I didn't realize you had an escape route, that's pretty neat.

    Eh, struck a nerve on this one, a good one, I believe-when this one came up a while back, I tried and got...53,790.
    I can't do what you did-not sure anyone could, first or last name would certainly have to start with "G" to even have a chance(coincidence giggle), but 53,790...
    I gotta start pressing my "try" button a little harder...
    :)

    Gremlins is definitely a "hole" in "my 80's". Somehow never watched it, can't imagine I ever will.

    I don't think people who haven't played this will realize how hard it is to catch the Gremlins, you make it look easy and it is very not.

    Accepted!!!
    So they say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh, oh, oh

    Absolutely amazing performance Greg!! One of my favorite games on the 2600 when I was younger (and one of the few carts I actually owned growing up).
    I fully agree with Rogerpoco also that this game is also much harder to play than it looks, it gets really quick really fast! Best I could ever get is in the 59,000 range and that was only recently.
    Was an absolute joy to watch you get such an incredible score and fully dismantle this game! Accepted!!
