Max or roll?

Recommended Posts

I'm making a spreadsheet about where games max or roll, but I'm having difficulty finding the information I need, so let's get it going!
I decided that the best place to get the information would be from the people with the most atari knowledge.
So if you know any games that max/roll if you could post where they max/roll I would appreciate it, once I get enough scores I'll make a mock sheet to add to the post to show how far along it is and if there are scores missing.


Any help is greatly appreciated :)

Chopper Command 999,999

Laser Blast 999,999 (or 1 million if you count the !!!!!)

Misunderstanding on my part. At a minimum, it will show you where they max/roll.


For the vast majority of games on the VCS, that can max/roll, most roll. The exceptions are probably below 20-40 games.

Its been awhile since I've done it, but I believe Asteroids rolls over at 9999.

It's probably the only game I have ever and will ever roll score on.
