    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    I have done some searching online, and I have discovered there was no official release of the video game 'Bank Panic' on the Atari 8-bit computer. There are three possibilities here:

    1. The game played was Bank Panik (sic) which is an unofficial game written in BASIC. However, the game has a different spelling and should be noticeable.

    2. The game played was Bang! Bank, which was an unofficial adaptation under a different name.

    3. The score is completely invalid.

    Either way, I feel that this score should be looked at.

    It has to be this game "Bang! Bank!" which appears to be a unofficial port of "Bank Panic" from Poland.
