I wasn't able to get my score any higher. This was a great choice though.

Credit goes to @Sabertooth for nominating Megamania. Absolute perfect choice to start off the year, we had a great time!

I kept playing this game right up until the very last moment and couldn't beat my previous score. It was a heck of a run.

Final Standings and our next Squad Challenge coming shortly :mac_bomb:

:pole_position_blimp_big: Congratulations Marco1019!

 

Congratulations to the incredible @Marco1019 on becoming our new Megamania Squad Champion! Marco hit a home run with his stellar score of 200,180 points! Absolutely killer score and a decisive win! And a big congratulations to everybody on all those incredible scores across the board! We're starting the new year with a HUGE turnout in High Score Squad! I hope Megamania was fun and you'll continue to join us for Squad Challenges throughout the year ahead. Great way to start the year! @Csolo was on fire in Megamania, securing the 2nd Place in our Final Standings with his burning hot score of 109,640 points. @chas10e takes 3rd with an impressive 104,560 points, and @RickR was hot on his tail, taking 4th with 104,100. @Atari 5200 Guy fought hard to break that ceiling and join the 100,000 point club, but takes 5th Place just shy of that with 99.740 points. @Dinobot711 @Sabertooth @greenween @Justin @RadioPoultry @nosweargamer @TrekMD @Gianna and @Atari Creep all joined us in our Megamania Activision Squad Challenge and shared terrific high scores. I hope everybody who joined us for this one had a blast!

Also, this week we welcomed @Csolo to High Score Squad who joined us for this Challenge! Csolo knocked it out of the park, taking 2nd Place in our Final Standings in his first Squad Challenge! It's great to have you at Atari I/O participating in High Score Squad @Csolo !! Everybody's glad you're here! WELCOME!!

Our new Achievement Badges have been a real hit in the forums. This week we introduced our first Activision Badge! For this Squad Challenge, we're awarding the Activision Megamaniacs Badge as an achievement for all players who achieved a "patch-worthy" score of 45,000+ Points in our Megamania Squad Challenge. Each of you who scored 45,000 points or more have now been awarded the Activision Megamaniacs Badge! For all Activision games played in High Score Squad moving forward, we will be recreating the classic Activision Patches as Badges and awarding them to all players who achieve a "patch-worthy" score as originally set forth by Activision. We think that will be a fun way to play Activision games in High Score Squad, and revive the spirit of the original Activision Patches.

As always I'd like to encourage @Marco1019 to post his high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! Congratulations to Marco, thanks again to @Sabertooth for nominating this game, and a big congratulations and Happy New Year to our wonderful little community for being such a great group to spend time with, I hope everybody had fun playing Megamania!

NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge is Bowling for the Atari 2600! Be there!

Thank you, @Justin, for hosting & coordinating these Squad Challenges! Also, thank you to everyone for the kind words. It was nice to turn back the clock; there was a part of me that wanted to continue practicing and aim for a max-out. 

 

I'll give 2600 Bowling a go. We'll see about future Squad Challenges as I'll be juggling other stuff in 2022. (Good stuff, though, between my show, Lvl Up Score, and other sites.) In addition, I didn't own every system or computer so there will be challenges I will skip entirely.

@Marco1019 What systems do you have that you would like to see played

No idea LOL!

 

On a more serious note, here's what I owned previously: 2600, C64, Genesis, SNES, Saturn, PS1, Jaguar. I do have a Genesis & 32X here but it's not hooked up. But as I menntioned in another thread, I'm pretty much on emulators right now.

 

Just keep doing what you've been doing. Variety is a good thing & gives exposure to those who may be unfamiliar with a particular system and/or game.
