I think the draw with Nibbler is that there's actually a *digit* for the billion, whereas Satan's Hollow would just roll over.

It would be a pain in the ass to keep track of 1,000 rollovers, but Ben has software setup to track all of his millions.

How would they have known this ahead of time? Was it advertised with the game's release?

Yeah, I haven't confirmed Ben's 27.9M score at MARP yet because of the hassle of making sure I count the 27 rollovers correctly (and I watched the game live)!  Confirming 1,000 rollovers is scary to think about.

Ah ha! A MARPer with score-confirmation privileges!

Now I know who to bug...  ;D

I just got 51,913,135 on Satan's Hollow in MAME which beats the long-standing arcade record.  I've always been suspicious of that score and I'm glad to have achieved that goal.  I'm very confident I can do the same on a cab, so hopefully the record will officially go down this week.  The game lasted a little over 3.5 hours and I had 789 flags.

Ben the destroyer puts another arcade classic down. I imagine if Ben was a game tester in the 80's none of us would of spent more than 30 seconds on the games he approved as slightly challenging. Way to go

Great job Ben!  I know you'd wanted this one for a while so great to see it come together.  Good luck taking it down the arcade score live at the KO3 (and not having Don top you!).  I'll actually take the time to count and track all 51 rollovers to verify this one at MARP!

Hah.  I figured that score would remain unconfirmed for that reason. :D Thanks, guys!

You should put the link to your twitch stream in your MARP submission.  You wrote an awesome program to track the rollovers and future viewers of your game will appreciate this.

Confirmed it with the help of an Excel spreadsheet, F10, F11 and Pausing!  Counted all 51 rollovers noting the flag count and frame # of each rollover.

What's amazing is you could have scored much higher after that killer run on your second life!

New PB on Missile Command with 1,897,965.  Rolled the cities on the second 810K and wasn't left with many so that was that.
