Why are all the scores posted with (current?) backgrounds? Is that a rule?

It's done that way to prove that the score was achieved since the contest started (March 11th) and not a previously achieved score. Since Dan is running this contest and he mentioned it in the chat during Wednesday Night's Atari chat, I used the chatroom as the background on the first go. Second attempt, I used the post here at AtariAge.  :)

Highscore.com requires something similar for their verification of scores (must show gamers tag within the photo).

well I did not know that just figured that they forget to minimize the windows behind.

Just finished an impromptu ZeroPage stream playing Aardvark with Tanya! I had to stop after a while because my wrist was sore so I made it a goal to make it to 500k (I had 7 lives at that point).

 

James O: 507480

Tanya O: 6450

 

I'll update my post with the link to the YouTube archive tomorrow. :-) You can check it out on Twitch in the mean time if you like.

Looks like you would have rolled the 5 level demo version. That definitely won't happen with the final release. But your hefty training with the demo should help.

Many many many times! :-) I commented that my training will definitely help in the final release, I honed my pattern and strategy down perfectly.

Also I found a very odd bug during my extensive play session last night but I'll post it in Aardvark thread.
