I am most definitely interested in this. Unfortunately I don't currently have an Atari so I'll have to use an emulator.

Spider Fighter has an Activision score of 40,000. I've beaten that, but I'll do it again later to get a pic.

I couldn't get past 12 on Galaxian. You win this round Loxx 

I did break 1700 on Kaboom, but wasn't worth taking a pic. I'm going for that 3K

One thing to avoid in Galaxian is going to the edges of the screen. It's a death trap after the first few waves.

yes.. I learned that pretty quick. Also I try to kill the purple guys first, they are usually the ones that kill me. I leave the top 2 rows until the end, hoping to get that point bonus

There's a trick to Kaboom. If you die right before the score rolls another 1000, the speed resets and then you get your lost life back as soon as you roll over the next 1000.

Didn't know that about Kaboom!

I always try to take out the vanguard ships in Galaxian first. I now know there is a bonus, but letting the 3 ship squad come down while dealing with all the others gets me killed more often. If you can't survive, you can't get a high score.   So yeah, the gold(yellow?), red, and purple ships are always my first targets and the bottom pawn ships just get wiped out in the fire while getting there. I also mainly focus on the empty space between myself and the pack. You learn the pace that the pack ticks back and forth so just focus on not getting hit by enemy fire or ships while firing. You'll hit stuff gradually. That's just how I focus on the game anyway.

put me down for 1986 on Kaboom! That's my high from a few years ago. I never forget it, as it's the year my sister was born. I have yet to top it, but I can honestly blame my current paddles for that.

Like many Atari players, I keep a little score notebook I'll have to consult for additional submissions.

Like I said... I'll clean those paddles up...

Tonight I figure I can put down a 'new' score for Galaxian and Spider Fighters at the very least.  I'll try to get something up for Tron: Deadly Discs as well.  Also, I'm going to edit this post and attach some pictures I took for both those games over a week ago.  I was going to send them to Bert during some PMs but my phone won't let me add attachments to messages.

Yep, that's an amazing help.

Also, shouldn't we be clarifying game modes for these scores...? For example, if you're going to put up a Kaboom! score with the wide paddles, I can't take that seriously. Small paddles buckets or GTFO. But generally, clarifying the acceptible game mode (even if it's in-line with previously published Activision guidelines) would be useful

How do you even do that? Switching difficulty or game mode? I just play default settings on games.

Yep! And maybe 'default' is OK for many. Just wanted to voice that we need to address that, if this is meant to be head-to-head for high scores.

It would be helpful if those more familiar with the games could clarify when default is okay or switching is necessary. Obviously, I'm out of the loop on that.  

Edit:  One night I somehow turned on Spider Fighters and I was invincible... There were 2 strips of the rainbow color areas on the screen going down where the edges or movement were.  Was weird... so I'd for sure advise to watch out for that.  Maybe I'll experiment and figure out what setting that was unless someone already knows.

Maybe for the sake of simplicity, just use defaults for each game?
