    THE OBJECTIVE:

    Be the competitor with the fastest time (Rank 1) on this leaderboard to score 99 points when playing the Atari 2600 NTSC or PAL version of "Fishing Derby" when the bounty challenge closes on DECEMBER 31, 2022 at 11:59PM PST.

    THE RULES:

    --Game 1, Difficulty B

    --Both difficulty switches must be set to B position.

    --Timer starts as soon as fish appear on the screen playfield.
    --Timer ends the moment 99 points is displayed as the player's score.

    --You must get 99 points for this challenge.

    This bounty challenge accepts platform submissions from the Original Atari 2600 NTSC or PAL, as well as Atari 2600 NTSC or PAL EMU (emulator) submissions.

    If an emulator is used, the submission description must contain information regarding general details specifying what emulator app was used as well as a simple description of the hardware platform that the emulator was run on (PC, Mac, Rasberry Pi, etc.) and what system OS was used (Windows, Linux, MacOs, etc.)

    Showing system / software boot up is recommended but is NOT required.

    The Twin Galaxies General Gameplay Global Rules And Guidelines for All Submissions shall apply, however the above listed bounty and track rules are considered the overriding rule set where/if there is any direct overlap or conflict.
    REWARDS:

    The successful bounty claimant will receive -

    --One (1) TG Achievement Point

    --One (1) $500 Amazon eGift Card

    Additional Information:

    This Bounty Challenge leaderboard only contains 10 viewable competitive slots, however claimants are free to submit as many times as they want to. The leaderboard only shows the top 10 highest score submissions.
    The Bounty Challenge will remain open, accepting as many submissions as possible until 11:59PM PST on DECEMBER 31st 2022. After that time, the Bounty Challenge will close, any submissions that are still awaiting adjudication will be processed and then the competitor who holds RANK 1 on this bounty challenge leaderboard will receive the bounty award.

    Only one score performance of an individual claimant can occupy the leaderboard at any time, therefore if the same claimant submits a better performance than their previous submission it will replace their lower scoring performance on the leaderboard

    All submission performances for this bounty challenge must be submitted directly to this bounty listing using the Submit Claim button.
    We are looking forward to seeing some amazing submissions!

    Nice start. Only suggestion I have would be to move the camera or adjust the glare, so the score is visible.

    good call. i cant do much about glare but i can do the standard of moving the camera at the end to show.

    the action stopping demonstrates either I or the computer hit 99. so i think i can succesfully defend that, but yeah, for the clock i'll be more considerate in the future

    I Could not see it, because of the glare, but I went by counting each fish, when it it got to the 99 fish as it was being brought up to the surface that is when stopped and captured the time.

    Can we get a few Twin Galaxies members to do a frame-by-frame analyst on the run, I am sure it will be 1:55.0 or better.
    Great run Snowflake William and Happy belated Thanksgiving to you and your family and friends.

    no you didnt. you didnt count to 99 fish you're guessing how the game works. i appreciate you're trying to help me but JJT you're outright lying now and i wont stand for it even if it helps me. you didnt count 99 fish. thats not what the 99 means despite your best guess had you done what you claimed then you'd know that. for those unfamiliar, fish are worth 2,4, or 6 points and the score stops at 99. fyi, if you're at 98 and get the 6 pointer, 98+6=99 for this maxout.

    I am so incredibly amused right now.

    Is "motion stopping" accurate enough? The game could have frozen.
    Sorry man, but we really need to see the game and the score.
    I am sure you can repeat this score or better.


    And LOL at JTT counting the fish.
