Note that I'm submitting this score early, because today and tomorrow are holidays called Brazilian Carnival.

66,200! Beat my personal best from the last time we played this in the HSC!

Adventures of TRON (1982) (M Network).png

My big tip for this game is to learn how to zig-zag up and down floors to avoid the enemies and have patience. There's no time limit to catching the bits and you can exit the screen from any floor, so take your time on the faster levels.

My goal is to break 100K on this game this week.

WOW! That Pole Position competiton was CRAZY! We should see Sunda as being an intense day for posting scores from now on.
I would say I was not close on the Pole Position predicted score. I didn't think everyone would score so high and so close.
Ok. Advertures of Tron. This game is a game that I have always wanted to get good at but never sat down long enough to get a decent score. At first the game is confusing but turns into an outstanding game that never gets boring. Once you play and understand what the heck is going on you will enjoy it.
If you have played this game in the past you will have an early advantage. But if you spend enough time with it this week you will catch up quickly. To the newbies, one day of play will not get you a great score. As a kid I broke 45K but could have gotten better with time. So I predict the low score of the week will be 52K. That might be high but I have confidence in everyone to score well. There might be a slacker out there who gives up quickly but since we have very active players left, I am not counting on it.
My first score:
Vocelli: 33200

--- Ah, I knew I had to be missing something, was playing where you had to be at an up door to go down :)

PRO-TIP: Position both Difficulty Switches to A / Expert, in order to practice the highest levels. Then, press reset game.

And here's an Easter Egg Screen (Programmer Credits - G.Hightower is Glenn Hightower):

Adventures of TRON (1982) (M Network)_4.png

To do this, I pressed "Select Game" and "Reset Game" together when this game was opened.

I think this will be safe, but if it's not more power to you all. I think this game would be impossible to roll even with save states judging by how fast it got over 50,000

Bumped up a little bit.

Went back and looked at my score from the last time we played this one in the HSC. It was only 24,000. That would have clearly missed the cut this week.

A new term I came up with tonight while playing... TANK NUTS!!!

57k

Nice to see while INTV didn't rely much on cheap death, when a BSR got to write a VCS title, it was perfectly fair game lol...

74,200! All time personal best!

Adventures of TRON (1982) (M Network).png

I thought the difficulty maxed out around 50 or 60K, but that's not the case. I find myself ducking and weaving more and more, trying to get those bits at the top, with each passing level. It's quite challenging (and rather addicting too!) :)

What sucks is having to start all over at the super slow level each time. Once I get to about 30K, the game starts to get fun again. :)

Here's another little tip: If you're feeling overwhelmed with all the enemies and you need a few seconds to collect your thoughts and form a strategy, slide down the I/O beam in the middle, but hold up on the controller as you slide down. You'll slide down very slowly. This is especially effective when you're at the top of the screen and you are invincible while sliding down the I/O beam.

Woo Hoooo! Woo Hoooo!
I passed JacobZu7zu7's score (Season 8 / Round 17 - 2600 TRON) - 78,800

Adventures of TRON (1982) (M Network)_7.png

Since my score is more difficult to beat, here's my FInal Attempt.
My goal for this game is to reach 75K, or beat JacobZu7zu7's score (70K). I reached this objective!! :D :D :D

you know I wonder if Tron is able to have kids after sliding up and down that pole. I think I'd rather be shot by a tank
