Guess the score and win! I will play the game 3 times and take the average of my scores, the closest guess to my final average score wins the game!.

1344

Now for those of you that have watched a video of this device, there may be some confusion as to what the score is. The score is only displayed after each defender ship is destroyed and the final high score at the end of the game.

When you start a game you will see the number 4405 at the left of screen. The top number "4" is the number of ships remaining, the next digit "4" is the number of smart bombs you have, the third digit "0" is the number of humans caught by the aliens and the last digit "5" is the number of Inviso bombs you have left. so that is not the score of the game.

I love these VFD games. I own a couple, Donkey Kong and Pac Man, both are great fun and vibrant.

As far as the contest, hard to say, but I'm gonna go with 4000

now just need someone to do 3999 and leathco would be locked out, unless my average score ended up being 4000 :) and in that case, I would have to throw something extra in the box.

So if you based you guess on this number, please enter in a new guess.

This frickin machine keeps starting a new game right when the one I am playing ends. So I dont see a final score. So will do this a different way. Leathco, Retroshaun, Bjones, Diagamblic, Indie, Vipp and All your base - Just reply to this post as to what is your favorite classic arcade game. The winner will be determined by who gets the highest score using the lottery number generator (that uses you answer to generate a lottery number).
