Mine Storm [Worldwide Level 89 Version] 992,277 points

Yep, that score's legit!  For those that don't know, here are the several versions of Mine Storm:

1. The original that crashes if someone clears Mine Field 13

2. A later version (this one) that goes up to level 89.  Weird things happen, like the game skips a lot of Fields (there's no level 14 here, as it skips from 13 to 15), there's added space dust and alien forces that are worth several thousand points each, hence insane scores such as this one, plus you can't get past level 89

3. The European version without skipping Mine Fields/no space dust or alien forces.  This is believed to be the same game as the very rare Mine Storm 2 cart.

I also made a similiar score back in November, which can be seen here: http://vectrex.wikia.com/wiki/File:Darrylb500mstorm2013.jpg

Nice, it's always interesting reading a background story to score's like these.

@Sixx:

Thought it'd help, especially with people apparently not believing it (this is the first score where I have less than 100%) :| Good grief, there's TWO scores here!  I did a link and earlier evidence to another score in November.  Really sorry I don't have a camera to video record it when I'm not working, people.

I will not vote in this situation. Ilike your description but I think with the different varations there should be different listing and should be requested. When you get a job it will be nice to see your videos

This one WAS requested and Serious put it up.  There are ones for the original Mine Storm U. S. version (crashes at level 13) and the European version too, along with Mine Storm 2.

Yes, I look forward to when I get a camera too :)

I see I did not compleatly understand but I now realize you posted this under the Level 89 Version. I thank you for the clairification. Others claim I do not do this but you convinced me for a yes vote.

This is exactually why I skipp and do not mindlessly give people a no vote

@thedarkbanshee:

Thanks banshee :) Yes, beforehand there were just two listings for this game: the US (/crashes on level 13) version and the European version (which I assume never ends; I read on the Vectrex news group years ago someone got to level 90 or something).  This is the last, mostly recently added one, and is worldwide, as someone on my vector gaming forums stated his instructions to the game are exactly like mine: "space dust" and "alien forces" are mentioned (which are in this version only).  For many years I thought only my/a later version of the Vectrexes made here in the States had that stuff.  I forgot who posted it but he doesn't live in this country!  (Maybe France?)

I've yet to give anyone a 'no' vote myself.  I know Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, Sega 32X, CD, Vectrex and arcade stuff the most.  That's a lot of blanks I don't know about!
