I don't have a roller controller.
This is again a good game choice by Ikrananka, level 2 is very tough to play.
My score: 54.900. One great run in about 10 tries.P9240089.JPG

I do. If you don't have one I would recommend picking one up. You can use it for more than the traditional trackball games like Star Wars, Space Fury, Carnival & SubRoc.

I would've snapped a pic but I played the easy version first which was on the high score list. (yeah I know - I could've power-cycled but I was too lazy at the time).

So, just to confirm - your score was from Skill 1 - Easy and therefore not valid for this HSC.

That is incorrect.

I started my gaming session on Easy then switched to Standard. Because my High Score listed was over 50K achieved on Easy, I did not snap a photo.

So therefore, my score achieved on Standard difficulty is 35,461.

Understood - sorry for my misinterpretation.

Virtual Colecovision, is not a good emulation... I'm not gonna use that for HSC... centipedes collision detection is, twice as difficult.

Got much better score with MEKA Sega emulation it's also a Colecovision...

That spider makes the game SO difficult - can we get a hack to include some DDT to whack that guy?

The way the spiders behave in this version makes me play the game entirely different from the arcade. Spiders should not be allowed to crawl along the bottom like that. :) Is it just me or is it overall faster than playing the arcade? Perhaps it is just due in part to having less rows to traverse and the fact I am getting old. In this setting you get scorpions immediately and makes for a challenge right away.

40,872 50,029 just hit 50ks...!

I like this centipede because it's faster and a bit different, yet... I am slighty annoyed by the fact it's different and not like Atari console versions. lol

This game is an a-hole basically.
