My Marauder is white.  Is the one in that picture PAL?

 

Also, were those records done on game 4 or game 1?

Yeah I think that's a PAL copy, although the red one is also listed as an American release at Atarimania:

And -- yes, the old records were done on Game 4!

Vocelli: 8000

 

So I read the directions and played game 1 to get a feel for the game. Seemed easy but got harder as it went along.

Then I played GAME 4:  WOW!!!

They just surround my dude. I sometime just exit the starting the screen just to get away.

I killed the core on diagonal hits several times but man the game is intense!

I agree, this game is intense!!  I tend to lose lives in rapid fire succession.  One thing I discovered that helps is to shoot as you enter any hallway even before you see the robot.  When I'm surrounded, I try to press the button rapidly for fast, short-range firing, but I'm still working on that approach.

 

Game 4 score:  ​8,730

I'm not sure, I just did a Google image search for Gorf and that was the first one with the flag ship. I just assumed it was from MAME with the bezel art.

4,020 - Wow, the game difficulty ramps up quickly!

 

7,350 - The game seems simple enough, but it's actually got quite a few quirks that makes it a lot more unique and fun than you think upon first glance.

 

 

Bonus - Xevious
