atari games that are marathonable that havent been marathoned

Basically we've all pushed things so far that all maxouts are tied (boring) and all non maxouts are marathons. Wondering what games left put up a good challenge that arent maxed out or marathoned. you know, it would be nice to have a really hard challenge and record that doesnt take hours

now, despite the title i'll include plaque attack since a maxout not yet maxed is pretty rare so i didnt state such an option in the title but plaque attack is a good example. hey titles have to be fast, i just mean "games that can result in a first place score (so not maxed) that doesnt take hours (so not marathoned) but has been competed on (not innaugral), a really tough record that doesnt take hours to get (though no doubt days and hours of practice)

i'll start the small list
plaque attack

minor 2049er part one

grey area
enduro (a little over an hour, so grey area, still an hour is a long time, i want a 15 minute game)

    That's why the 15 minute categories get created. ;)

    Crackpots, Kung Fu Master and Gopher have not been maxed out yet.

    Escape from Supercade (also called Power Off!) maxes out after completing the 8th screen.

    I feel the 15 minute category is too close to a max out type of thing. One life tracks though or five life tgts would certainly be along the lines of what I’m looking for

    you know ending an easy game at fifteen minutes per the rules is different than ending a game at fifteen minutes cause it’s just that hard
