So lastnight I played Space Armada game mode and got a score of 102,210. I proceeded to play a few games after that in practice mode and then it happened. The perfect storm scenario. The same one I had happen 35 years ago (in game mode). The red spaceship descended onto my right barrier immediately after I cleared the Armada from the screen. I shot him right before he landed on the barrier and I caught him there for what seemed like an hour. I held the button in an just kept crushing him again and again and again. The points were racking up, but I could not see the score obviously. I knew though that the score was going up exponentially as my right barrier kept trying to grow and the Armada from the next screen wasn't coming back up. So I kept holding the button in hopes of beating my unbelievable game score from 35 years ago when I was 15. I can finally say what my score was then because with the proof from lastnight it will now be believed. 35 years ago I got a game score of 2.835 million. Back then I took a pic of the screen with an old camera and I sent in the negative to Intellivision, but I never heard back from them. So lastnight I finally got some proof that you can rack up HUGE scores in Space Armada. Everything has to be perfect, but you can catch that devious red spaceship and rip him up for lots of points. So again lastnight I caught him on the far right barrier and just held the shoot button in and just kept crushing him over and over and over again. I must have gotten to about 500 to 750 (estimate) shots and then I decided to start counting. From that point on I counted atleast another 1,050 shots. by then my hand was shaking because my thumb was pressing the shoot button for around 20 straight minutes. My thumb actually fell asleep, pins and needles. I was starting to get nervous that the game would glitch out and then I would once again not have definitive proof of my crazy Space Armada scores. So after shooting the red spaceship around 1,750 times (estimate), I released my thumb and then saw the craziest BIGGEST Space Armada score I have ever seen in my life. It crushed my 2.835 million score from 35 years ago. Yeah this score was in practice mode, but it's still a crazy unbelievable Space Armada score nonetheless. After I released my thumb that was numb lol, the score flashed up. I had 31.8 million. Then the Armada came back and I shot as much as I could with a shaking hand and then they squashed me. When all was said and done my practice score was an unprecedented 31,793,900 POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lol so now we know that Space Armada scores can go out to the 8th digit, 99,999,999. Now I want to know if they go out to the 9th digit, 999,999,999??? New challenge awaits HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
I still think my score from 35 years ago 'could' be the highest Space Armada game score ever. But I really believe my practice score lastnight is the single highest Space Armada score EVER. That's my story and I'm sticking to it until I see definitive proof otherwise. Please somebody call Guinness HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
Finally got the 35 year old monkey off my back......
