    Justin, I think you'll agree that anybody who can roll the score on this one can pretty much marathon it :)  And considering you were the first here to do it, I gladly yield my place to you.

    Add me to the 1 million club, just in time :)  I point-pressed Slipice as well. You can kill up to 255 Slipice per level.

    It's possible to roll the score counter w/o point-pressing.  The strategy is observing the fireballs on each level.  The first 5 fireballs of a level are random; after that, the pattern continues to loop those 5.  The next level will randomly have a new pattern of 5, and so on.

    The game does have an inherent issue with that variation. The captive balls are brown and flicker, which allows them to sometimes pass through a brick and even your paddle.  Here's 2 videos I just put up.  The first shows one of the captive balls going right through a brick multiple times.  I was only able to knock it out using the blue ball.  The other shows a captive ball going right through the paddle.

    Way late to the 'party', but I wanted to see if I could roll the score in this variation.  Original hardware, as always:

    Back in 1982, the department store Boscov's held some Atari VCS contests, one being for Pac-Man.  Entrants had 2 attempts to score as much as possible in 5-minute long games.  After a few attempts, I got a 5,200, which ranks as the 3rd-highest, according to this article.  I'm assuming this contest was on game 1 with difficulty B.  I used this free PC app to time my efforts. https://free-stopwatch.com/   Pretty impressive that someone nearly cracked 8k on this.
