    391 first try.  I can do much better.
    There's two things I love about this game. 
    The sound - Lovely crystal-like sounds.  The fact that multiple bricks can go with each hit.

    The bonus rounds really are the way to go. I got 1500 points each from the last couple before the game ended.

    Finally added a boxed super Nintendo to the collection. Got it off offer up. guy posted it a year ago and I asked him if it was available that day a year ago and he finally messaged me yesterday said he still has it. Got it for $50. He also said he had some games but I would have to pay extra. He only wanted $20 for the games. Man I have been wanting to play turtles in time for the longest!

    If anyone is interested in me playing horribly at 2600 games, here's the first three hours of my marathon:
    @Atari Creepwas a trooper & kept me company in the wee hours of the morning while I made my way through some COD: Modern Warfare campaign. @Control Issuesstopped by while I was playing some virtual golf.
    Thank you again for all of your support, both financially & with spreading the word.
    I will draw the order for the giveaway later today (hopefully).

    I like how you can speed up or slow down the paddle with the A or B buttons. The Game Boy port of Super Breakout would have been greatly improved if it had a similar feature.

    Woooweee, this is a perfect game for Halloween.  There is NOTHING more satisfying that smacking the living with a board.  I'm going to find time to play this one more.
    Warning:  This is another game that doesn't show your score after you die.  You gotta be careful and hit that pause button, get your camera ready, then unpause and snap!

    MESSAGE: Welcome to our 72nd Squad Challenge! November kicks off the Holiday season, which often times reminds us of traveling, road trips to see family for holiday gatherings, and many hours spent in the back of the car playing video games. We're starting things off with Alleyway for Game Boy! Alleyway was one of the first Game Boy games released in the USA, and one of the first games I can remember playing for Game Boy. Alleyway is a nice Breakout clone. I loved Breakout and Super Breakout on Atari 2600, and although it lacks the Arkanoid-style power-ups, Alleyway still proves to be a fun game. I hope you guys enjoy this Squad Challenge! ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing!
     
    NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be a Thanksgiving challenge for the Atari 7800. Be there!

    Congratulations btbfilms76!
     
    Congratulations @btbfilms76 your astounding score! I hope everybody had a fun and safe Halloween and enjoyed the heck out of Splatterhouse! I was never great at Splatterhouse but I remember picking it up for the first time and how it felt so advanced compared to the games we had gotten used to by then, like Mario Bros. Plus how graphic everything seemed at the time. I was glad to see everybody in "the TurboGrafx club" show up for this! Even despite the malware issue, which I am working to resolve quickly. You guys posted some great scores and I'm happy to have come in dead last in one of these Squad Challenges! You guys posted some impressive scores on a very challenging game. @btbfilms76 posted an astronomical score of 101,800 points, performed live in front of an audience on YouTube! Unreal! @Atari Creep ranked 2nd on the board with a score of 28,100 points, also performed live in front of an audience on Instagram Live! @RickR takes the 3rd position with a solid 16,400 points on his first try, and I round things out in 4th place after playing for a few hours to get 15,400 points. Congrats to @btbfilms76 and everyone who played in this squad challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on!
    NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the original (DMG) Nintendo Game Boy. Be there!

    On Halloween 1991, we received over two feet of snow in one day. It blocked the roads and no one could go anywhere. It is known here in Minnesota as the "Halloween Megastorm." People died from shoveling snow due to heart attacks. At least, IIRC. It was one really bad snowstorm, that was for sure. I was stranded in Minneapolis that day. I wanted to see my folks in Saint Paul, but could not do it. Obvious reasons.

    Well, we got snow the night before Christmas...I mean HALLOWEEN!  Geez, man.  Temperatures were barely above freezing so my wife and I stayed home and played the Bloody Harvest event in Borderlands 3 which ends sometime next week.  The "rewards" we got were not that great, though.  Got maybe one or two legendary items one of which is a Torgue shotgun that fires lasers and rockets simultaneously.  That was probably the best reward during the event that my wife and I got but that came from an enemy, not a boss or loot crate.  It goes through the ammo quick, though.  Was taking down a boss with it, doing good, half way through the gun went "click" and my character said "Out of AMMO!"  D'OH!  Yea, got our butts stomped after that gun ran out of ammo and no vending machines were any where close by.
    Hard to believe another Halloween has come and gone and Wal-Mart had their Christmas stuff setup like a week before.  Now we get set for lots of turkey and then a visit from the man in the big red suit.  Man the holidays come and go so fast these days.
