Attention: Read Carefully!

 

RULES FOR THE CARE OF MOGWAI:

 

1. Keep them away from water. Don't ever get them wet. Water makes them multiply.

 

2. Keep them out of light. They hate bright light. It will kill them.

 

3. But the most important thing, the thing you must never forget, is that no matter how much they cry, no matter how much they beg, never, NEVER feed them after midnight. If you do, they'll hatch into Gremlins!


Post your scores right here in this thread, and we will add them to the list. Remember to play the game with the recommended game mode and difficulty settings as shown above so that your scores will be consistent with everyone else.

The deadline for posting scores is 12:00 Midnight (EST) the evening of Sunday, March 13th, 2016

I never played this game, but I do have a copy of it, complete with dog bite marks covering the cart!

The movie came out one month before Atari Corporation became the new title. Must've been a quick job.

59,720. Agree with Lid. Gremlins would have been a much better game and had more replay value if it used paddle controllers. The controls are too jumpy for my liking.

Sorry for my absence to post scores on 2600 NEW High Score Club, guys!

 

I'm focusing on HighScore.com Official Contest whose deadline will end on April 3rd, 2016 - Atari 5200/7800 Worldwide Trophy Cracking Competition.

 

I'm trying to win a composite modded Atari 7800 Prosystem Real Hardware.

Good luck with the contest.

Last time I saw you and Deteacher were tied with 80 cracked world highscores.

On the board with probably not much more than participation points. The controls of this game have something that doesn't go well with keyboard controls. I don't feel like I am in control at all...

 

Gremlins B/B: 41,860.

64,000 so far. It was only my second game. Not bad for a rookie? I am going to play this one some more of course.

The difficulty maxes out once you hit the 3 gremlins at a time stage, but by that point I'm seriously losing interest in the game. I agree that there's something not quite right about the controls. Billy's never quite where I think he should be.
