    Submission Message
    mp4 video and a screenshot. I powered off & on, and showed the uno cart, both before and after the games. I believe the submitted time is for the 4th and final attempt on the video, and it starts at about 4:47 on the video.

    Thank you for reviewing!

    Also, I won't harp on this kind of thing very often, but I don't see any possible way that the 1st place score is legitimate without heavy leeching. Between reading the manual and playing the game out, there would have to be something I'm completely unaware of, or the leeching. Oh well, fun little game, I thought.

    "Leave a Contrail".
    That's what I see, on the first place score.
    Seems like creative wordplay, rather than an actual name, but that's just conjecture, I have no idea.

    OK, I thought this game would be like this when you mentioned it, it was ported to Vectrex, I believe, homebrew, I kinda guessed they'd be similar.
    Watching now.
    :D

    yeah, i noticed the "name" was funny, too. wow, didn't know they had homebrews for vectrex, cool.

    fwiw, i said "time" in the submission message when i mean "score", that's what i get for the copy & paste. :P

    I mean, it looks like a jet plane, picking up people.
    Pretty sure we discovered a very old inside joke of some kind.

    My actual "story" is a little off, so I won't tell it, but I'm almost pretty sure there was some legal tap dancing to specifically promote/allow homebrew on the Vectrex, to "keep it alive".
    Prolly have to find details yurself, as again, I think mine are slightly off.

    I'd almost guarantee you're right, though Ive been wrong about these things before. If we were laying money down though I say its not their true name.
