Tied with karo at 19,600.  

 

This is fun and was a good choice.  I would have never played this game if not for the HSC.   What is GORF?   Is it an acronym?

Joining the 10K club with 12,900. I thought about making some sort commemorative graphic. Something that combines the thrill of reaching 10,000 points with the heartbreaking realization that it's only 10,000 points, but I couldn't come up with anything really good. Brutal game but still fun. It was one of my dad's favorites on the Colecovision.

First day playing this week: 21700

Must've blown up the flagship what, 5-6 times? Whatever the number, that's some bonus points there!

I have to admit I appreciate this game much more after playing the arcade machine for the first time in my life this February at Stella's Lounge in Grand Rapids. I was all, this is Gorf ?!?! Wow!

​Please note that Gorf scoring is limited to 5 digits, so when you roll over, it uses a special symbol to represent the first two digits.  In this case the first symbol in the score, which resembles a "Y", represents "15".

Yes, every 10k beyond 100k a new symbol appears.  Weird.

 

I've yet to reach my personal high of 276,950, but I think I'm ready to move on to Venture....

Bonus: Type & Tell, the Odyssey2 game that let you spell out curse words and let The Voice pronounce them.  What more could a kid in 1983 ask for?

Finally! Cracked 20k, last minute. I had 16-19 k several times, always getting killed one or two hits before the 20k threshold. Now, my goal for this week is achieved. Sorry, Atarian7. I could have lived very well with a tied score with you. But I was so pissed off at the game, I just had to try again...

 

New score: 22,400.

I lost on the flagship which shouldn't happen.   The Space warp is where I usually lose.

I remember playing hours of Gauntlet at home on the Commodore 64 with my best friend and also my brother its a great conversion, but the Arcade had voice effects, much cooler!
