Congratulations @btbfilms76 on your fantastic score! I hope you guys enjoyed checking out Ghouls 'N Ghosts on Sega Genesis! This was a tough one! I was happy to see you guys jumping into this challenge even though there was some emulation required that you may not have had set up. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging Single Life Run. @btbfilms76 posted a score of 15,700 points before the cutoff time last Saturday night, @Control Issues was right on his tail taking 2nd place on the board with a score of 12,400 points, @RickR took the 3rd position with his A-game of 6,700 points played during a busy work week, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with an impressive 5,400 points. Congrats to everyone who jumped in to play in this squad challenge and shared a score!

Note: We've changed our schedule to accommodate for a horrific Halloween Squad Challenge coming up for the later half of October! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Mattel Intellivision!






1   BTBFILMS76                         15,700

2   CONTROL ISSUES                12,400

3   RICKR                                       6,700

4   ATARI CREEP                          5,400



Here's something unexpected: BTB and Atari Creep went into OVERTIME and continued playing the Squad Challenge into Sunday and Monday after the cutoff time (11:59 PM PST, Saturday, September 14th) and ended up posting their best scores. Both btbfilms76 and Atari Creep did livestream events on their Instagram and YouTube channels playing this game and showing how it's done in Ghouls 'N Ghosts. In the spirit of friendly competition I’m adding these scores in a 2nd section called “Extra Credit”. It would be fun to see these two dudes duke it out and keep this alive in the Scoreboard, I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 and @Atari Creep to post their new high scores on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! And don't forget to check out BTB and Atari Creep on YouTube and Instagram!
