This is one of those games that I'm not very good at, yet I keep coming back for more. This applies to most Imagic games. If I could go back in time, I would travel back to 1982 and see what it was like to work for Imagic. I just imagine drunk programmers and empty pizza boxes all over the place.  :lol:

Game 1: 6,300. Did Imagic's hatred of their young consumer base exist before they started developing video games or was it a product of dealing with our demands? Luckily (?) I have this game so I guess it's time to see how many joysticks I can wreck.

After another hour of trying I think I've already hit my reflexes' breaking point in Game 1 with my last score submission so there probably won't be any more main game scores from me for rest of the week, but I did manage to improve a little in the Bonus Game 5. :)

One of those 'getting started' scores you're always reading about in the papers.  "Hey Ethel, did you see this Atari score in the Living section?"  "Yes, Fred, it's a nice human interest story, especially since that guy doesn't seem to be able to play that game at all."
