Probably not the best score I can do, but I still gotta knock out that rust. You know what the real challenge of this game is? Actually taking a photo of your score when you die! Within a handful of seconds after death, it transfers to the continue screen, and then the main title screen. It never shows or retains a record or display of your score beyond the time you're actually playing. So, to get this image, I actually set my camera to record video once I was on my last man, and then quickly moved to capture my score once I died. This is why I didn't bother to include an image of the TV with my hardware image; it was only showing the title screen at that time, with no score displayed, so it would have been pointless.

You know what? I had the run of my life on Buster Bros (emulated tho) last night only to realise i'd forgot the game dosn't show your highscore after you die.

Good to know about this game.  I'll probably set up a tripod and remote shutter when I go for a high score on this game.  Hopefully I'll be quick enough to get the picture when it's time.  I'll probably practice a few times before actually going for a high score run.
