    Not gonna lie ... I always watch videos on 2x speed, but on this one, I confirmed orig h/w and bootup, and then merely did repeated 10 second skips all the way to the final score. Youve already smashed this score same day, so Ill take the easy, blind-voting-d-bag 3 CR for this XD. Voting yes.

    ultimately @stygian gets the last word in this, but it appears to me luck is a yuge component. i dont know if these guys just found some way to plan for the enemy movements, but for me i just accepted it was luck and just focused on getting the squares as quickly as possible. doing so sometimes only gets me to 600, several times 3k, and a couple times the 4k. with the game maxing at 10k, if luck got me half me there i'm guessing just keep replaying till all the way. and yes i know how probabilty works, getting luck twice as long isnt twice as hard, its to the second power as hard. even still, we'll see. i may also just move onto the next game. i looked up and see this game is 1982. for late 70s i'd be impressed and maybe keep playing, for 1982 though i feel like they should be ashamed of themselves.
