Actually, the previous high score for Gorf was 100,000, not 1,000,000 as stated above.

 

It is possible to achieve scores higher than 100,000, but different idiosyncratic symbols are then used in place of numbers because the score can only be 5 digits long. 

 

So, Jake and the Baz, are we capping the score at 100,000 as Zero did last time, or can we score higher?

Getting on the board with 16,300. Game surely grows on you once you get a feel for the s´weird mechanics (you and your shots = slow, enemies = superfast).

 

Now, how do I see how many missions I have completed? Just from score? Is there a list? I'm too lazy to count :-).

I blew up the mothership twice, so I guess that's 8 missions for +1.

Defeated two flagships, then made it to the warp stage.  That would mean I completed 10 missions.  So I'm now a Space Colonel!

6150 for my 2nd game.   I didn't like this at first but I am starting to like it now.  I blew up two flagships and I'm not sure how far I made it after that 2nd one.

Mainly because Gorf was my all-time favorite arcade machine.  I'm hoping to see it ported to the 7800 some day!

Speaking on 7800, I won the Atari 5200 / 7800 Worldwide Trophy Cracking Competition at HighScore.com, with 151 trophies.
