Funny when 1999 came along, TV was nothing like this. But fortunately the next year we got The Grid. :D

1,365,020 is all I could muster after a few games--my Robotron 4" Wico leaf sticks needed some adjusting...

I'm slipping--I pulled off 7,126,450 on BYOAC a little while back...I'm slipping indeed...

Robotron's my favorite game of all time. Smash TV follows naturally. I've owned a few Robotrons over the years. I went to great lengths to get real "Robotron" 4" Wico red ball top leaf switch sticks on my cabinet.

Yah, 1 credit. I'm a big fan of double joystick games.


Sometimes Smash TV is generous & gives you quite a few free guys instead of weapons. On those lucky games, if you get past Mutoid Man, you get an enormous bonus for finishing the level. I can't seem to get past 2-3 rooms on the 2nd level, though--I get wiped out pretty quickly.

Thanks,
-Jason

Yeah, honestly I haven't played much Smash TV (yet). I did notice that sometimes you get handed all kinds of free lives and other times you don't see any. Kind of strange for a coin-op.

I don't know if you care for modern games but if you like the twin stick shooter you should check out Super Stardust HD on PS3.

I soooo saw that 4 mil score coming...

so I had this score for 11 hours, 32 minutes, and 56 seconds before it was quintupled.

I'm just gonna shoot for something in the Easter tournament, maybe Vanguard since I practically memorized the thing from playing it so much this past week.
