Slightly older news, but I just heard about this...
My good friend (and fellow Moon Patrol player) Ben Falls is in the news following a SPECTACULAR performance on the arcade version of Popeye. He posted a score of 3,023,060 points, which almost triples the previous record!
The article can be found here.
Ben, congratulations on a great score on such a difficult game. I've only really played the NES version, but have tried the arcade a few times. The arcade version is definitely way harder!
Good luck with Satan's Hollow too!
