Every score will be counted for the High Score Challenge also, even if you're not entered
in the Winter 2600 Knockout.

Everyone starts each game with a score of ZERO, one goal is to get above 0... or get a high score,
if you don't you will be eliminated and the lowest score earned of the active KO players, is safe!
A KING status will be awarded at the end of every round winner, as well as rankings and
points. First place gets +15 points! From there on, 1+ less...

For the K.O., you need not win, just not finish LAST! Let the battle begin...

Good Ol' Pole Position.
The arcade version was GREAT! The Atari XL computer version, the one I had, was GREAT!
The Atari 2600 version was OK but very limited.

Anyway here where I predict the lowest score.
Last week the Rampage scores were a bit higher than I thought, excluding the zero score and the score that couldn't get knocked out. I thought more people would play once or twice and give up. So I was a bit low (45K) when the next lowest score that would have been bumped would have been 73K. I guess we are getting to the active players left in the competition. It is getting very interesting. So this week I predict the lowest Pole Position score will be 55K. That's right 55K. I believe that is two crashes.
Should be a RACE to the top this week.
My starting score: 55350

60,660! 213" 97

I can shave more time off, but here's a little hint:

If you're in one lane and the oncoming car is changing lanes...if you don't have time to swich lanes, drive off the track "into the grass." You'll slow down a considerable amount, but you'll pass the car and get back up to speed quick enough. You'll waste less time that way, rather than crashing into a car.

In that run, I think I drove into the grass 4 or 5 times, but no crashes! :)

Oh, and for the record, I had 14 seconds remaining when I finished the race. I'm sure I can get that up to 15 or 16 if I don't drive off the track as much.

That's the point I'm at. No way you can beat your high score with a crash. For the all-time high score 60960, you probably can't touch the side of the road.

I believe a max out on this game is probably going to be at about a 62,000 point range.

Yup, I now see that, will fix that this update now...

Since were on the mistake topic, the rankings for last rounds, INTV Blockade Runner, went 10/8/6/4/2/1...
Did you change it, because normally it's 10-9-8-6-4-2-1.

As Zoyx mentioned, the all-time high is 60,960, which is also probably the maximum possible score.

Actually it was scored the 10-9-8-6-4-2-1, a non KO player "goldenband" got the 9.

This is actually a personal best for me, and no where near competitive! I think I had a surplus of a measly 5 seconds, but that's all I'm playing tonight.
