Just Asteroids for me this week.

13,820

 

I have my 7800 hooked up to an LCD TV so the pic rolls & shakes like a MFer, making gameplay that much more difficult.

 

However my score is not satisfactory so I plan to play again this week.

glad to see my Gyruss skills are still somewhat intact.

 

and, enjoying Galaxian!

 

for some reason, even though they're common games, I never played Moon Patrol or Galaxian on the VCS until recent years.
