I was following this rule of gameplay
Rule #6. Please do not abuse bugs in the games!
Many Atari games have loopholes that allow you to easily get huge amounts of points without much work
(An example of such "point scumming" in Asteroids, you can eliminate all but one small asteroid,
and then "hunt" UFO's without the level ending), or finish the game while skipping alot of the actual
content. Not only do these result in somewhat bogus high scores, but it ruins the fun and challenge of the game in the process.
I'll try to point out "forbidden" tactics as i become aware of them,
but if you happen to stumble across one that i was not aware of, please let me know!
(Note: If a bug is proven to exist partway through the contest, existing scores may be removed if it can be proven that they have exploited the bug even if it was not intentional. If you have triggered the bug accidentally,
i would urge you to voluntarily remove your score and post a new one.)

I personally don't think I was breaking said rule. The tactics involved are hardly foolproof and overall just common sense if your goal is points rather than to see how far you can get into the game. It's impossible to fully stop and in many places it's not to your advantage to do so due to the terrain.

I solved to erase my too huge scores on 7800 Desert Falcon (> 1,000,000 points).
My goal is to reach at least the SECOND PLACE on Season 5 Rankings at the final of Game 18 - FATAL RUN.
@JACOBZU7ZU7: Please, consider my final scores on Desert Falcon:
ADVANCED - 447,490
EXPERT - 491,762

Since this topic has NOT been locked due to Jacob's sickness, I decided to erase all my first scores.

oyama, do you have any way to record your game play to show us your technique.
