We will be playing Namco Museum for the Game Boy Advance for high score. The five games on the cart will be played one at a time consecutively over a five week period. The games, by order of the game menu, are Ms. Pac-Man, Pole Position, Dig Dug, Galaga and Galaxian. We will be playing in that order. Contest times: each segment begins on a Monday at 12:00 AM, and ends the following Sunday at 11:59 PM, for five consecutive weeks. How it will be scored: each player will receive a point ranking in relation to the high score of the others. So for example, if 10 people submit scores for Ms. Pac-Man, and I get the third lowest score, I would get a three. The person who got the highest score out of that group would get a ten. So a person's total score at the end of the marathon might look like this, for example: toptenmaterial Week One, Ms. Pac-Man: 2 Week Two, Pole Position: 6 Week Three, Dig Dig: 5 Week Four, Galaga: 13 Week Five, Galaxian: 3 Total score of 29 Emulation is fine. Please provide a pic of your high score, and feel free to submit as many as you'd like. Please adhere to the time schedule. Have fun!!!

Oh I royally suck at that game. Well I pretty much suck at all of them but I'm the worst at that one! :D The switching gears dynamic is kind of weird, but you have to because the brake really isn't intuative. I gave PP a couple of runs last night and didn't "qualify".

The two on this list that I sort of have an handle on are Dig Dug and Galaga.

Trivia: Dig Dug was Ol' Dirty Bastard's favorite video game!

SBaz: Just wanted to mention that we aren't doing Galaga until week four, in case there is any ambiguity.

Ah I see now! 

And thanks for the PP advice, I switched GBAs and found it's the R button.  one of my GBAs has only a somewhat-working R button unfortunately.
