RGB High Score Battle! - Week 45 & 46: Galaga

Site is updated! Here’s our current week details:

WEEK 45 & 46
Game: Galaga
Platform(s): Arcade Rev B, Various Arcade Re-releases
Challenge Type: High Score
Game Details: Full Game, 1 Credit
When: July 20th - Aug 2nd, 2020
Chosen By: SAKY

I’ve updated the website with the new game, let’s get shooting!

Good luck everyone, please submit your scores via screenshot or video by replying directly to this post!


  1. Competitions last two weeks, close on Sunday night @ midnight.
  2. Post screenshots in this thread as proof.
  3. The winner from the previous week chooses the next game to play.
  4. You cannot choose twice in a row. 2nd place will choose if someone wins two weeks in a row.
  5. If there’s a tie, the person that submitted the high score first gets to choose.
  6. Games must be high score compatible (think “arcade style scores” like Pac-Man, or Spy Hunter, not Super Mario).
  7. Emulation is okay (MAME is often the best for high scores).
  8. No save state manipulation (pausing to take a break is fine though).
  9. Submit scores as soon as you get them! To keep the competition rolling and fair, do not hold on until the last moment to submit.

Points will be awarded for the entrants, based on the position finished for the week. This is to encourage wider participation, and the points will be posted each week as well as on the website.

1st: 10 points
2nd: 7 points
3rd: 5 points
4th: 3 points
5th: 2 points
Any honest attempt: 1 point

Overall, we should keep it simple. This is just a good time, not a crazy official high score competition! Game plays should ideally be short and fun so people that can’t invest hours into this can still compete. Obviously we are working on a trust based system here, so don’t ruin it for the others!

Here’s a simple website I made to keep track of the competition.

So, @Sapiens is on a 2x win streak, we’re not going to let him get away with this are we? I’m going to have to put in some scores for this one.

No way in heck am I going to let @Sapiens win. Don’t be using the the no fire cheat or rapid fire ROM, this Rev B baby! :laughing:

Agreed, this is a glitchless run :stuck_out_tongue:

Namco Arcade Pac on Switch is Rev B?

Yep, every release since the 32bit era is probably rev B. I only said that rev B since it doesnt have the no fire glitch.

Oh man, slow one this time around. Nice work @SAKY, what game would you like to play next? Nobody else contributed, so you get to choose again.

I feel like I picked a dud :sweat_smile: Would you mind choosing in my behalf?

Sure, I’ll think of something and put it up Tues.

Slow because it’s summer and I have like zero time right now. I wish this would have been extended as this is one of my favorite games. Oh well.

If anyone wants to submit scores late, I will still add them to the leaderboard. You just don’t get the weekly win on the stats. Go for it when you have time!

Bring it on. One of my fave games also.

I’ll be bustin’ out the FlipGrip. Switch needed charging after a trip to the beach recently. :slight_smile:
