Squad Challenge - Jr. Pac-Man (Atari 2600)


Recommended Posts








Jr. Pac-Man 
Atari 2600
Difficulty Level: One Teddy Bear
Play on: Real Hardware / Dedicated Console / Emulation OK! ✔
Squad Challenge ends 11:59 pm PST April 14, 2021




Play for the highest possible score using the difficulty settings defined in the challenge. Post a photo or YouTube video of your score in this thread. Scores must be achieved between April 1st through April 14th, 2021. Screen captures are not allowed as they are more easily manipulated for falsified scores. Multiple submissions are permitted. The player with the highest score at the end of the competition is the victor!



Anyone can join in. All players are welcome!


Play Rules

Games may be played on real hardware, Flashback / Mini console, or emulation, using any controller or keyboard, following all rules and game settings defined in the challenge. Choosing between real hardware or emulation, and choosing which controller to play on is part of formulating your strategy. Enhancements, rewinds and hacked versions of this game are not allowed.


Difficulty Level

We are playing on the "One Teddy Bear" skill level. Don't let the "Teddy Bear" icons fool you! This starts you off with the default level of gameplay.  When you graduate to each higher level, the playground is faster, tougher, and even more challenging than the one before.


Fair Play

Your integrity is everything. Players should play fairly, be honest, and have fun! Falsified scores will result in your immediate removal from the site. It goes without saying that we will not allow cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, enhancements, rewinds, deceitful photo manipulation, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage. Everybody hates a cheater.

I announced this Squad Challenge in the Lvl Up Score Discord as this was announced a few days after my most recent show.


The good news is that Lvl Up Score is celebrating #AtariApril as gamers are focusing on all Atari systems throughout the month. So I hope there's some crossover between the sites.


Good luck to all of the participants!

Congrats on the move.  I hope you keep your cool coffee table and setup.  


Thanks @RickR! It's a big step and I'm excited about it.

The coffee table is staying but I'll have a dedicated gaming area in the new place. Will definitely post some photos once it's all set up.

Played this one recently at hardest level making this level now much easier after struggling with that.  I am quite impressed with some of the YouTube videos I have seen and high scores.
