It has started. This is the No Exploits AKA nothing outside of how the game was designed to be played.

Vote harsh I welcome it. The better the criticism the better this catigory will become. There is no room for error in this catigory. I want users to think of reasons to no vote this score and if you can find one NO VOTE THIS SCORE, DO NOT HOLD BACK. Let me know why so we can all make this catigory thrive. Don't like this catigory don't vote.

Yes I do. go play a a game type that allows you to hold the ball with the button. Next hold it and then switch levels such as one that does not allow holding and do not let go of the button. Once you reset you now will have holding the ball atribute in a non ball holding level. Thats just 1 thing that can be done there are several others. Do a youtube search.

I seen a video in the past on this but can not find it now so I copyed this straight froma website full of atari 2600 cheats


"Infinite Play

Select a "catch" game and catch your last ball, then press SELECT and release the ball. You'll play in the attract mode (complete with color shift!) score no points, but you'll keep getting new balls when you miss."


So is doing so there are no points earned but since this is possible what else is possible and can someone figure out a way to get the points to showup? I do nopt know. What I do know is its why this section needs to be strict.

oh interesting.  

actually I thought that kind of thing is already prohibited.  along with other "cheats" like cart-frying.   I guess it looks like this division will at least serve to chart only the scores with the best evidence...

Correct this chart will serve to show only good evidence otherwise there no votes even if make lugit. Thats just what I'm looking for so that way there can be Zero question upon being lugit oir not. These exploits pointed out may be consittered prohibited but in the end who can know the difference with only pictures. Therefore what you point out is absolutly correct.

I made top possible score in the expert mode but this was my score upon first attempt as I always do. So lower score it may be but I encourage others to beat me so for now this is as it shall remain untill its beaten.

Here are the listed Rules to this specified game

Rules: Left difficulty switch set to B. Game 1 unless otherwise specified. Must be played on a real 2600-compatible console or expansion module. No frying or use of hacked ROMs. No continues. 1 player only.

Infinite Play is not from a Continue

Ball holding on a non ball holding level is not from frying

All of this on an authentic non hacked cartridge

I also found super breakout maxes out a score of 99997 while holding down reset. I should test breakout for this.

All of these things are not covered in the rules.

The 99997 score truly shows why No Exploits is more then just to serve a chart the scores with the best evidence. I can make fantastic video evidence out of that 99997 score. Good rubber band on the switch and the system to be hands free. Note I already tested it and it work so well it would go unoticed
