I was looking up high scores for this one and it seems the two highest on twin galaxies (1.6 and 1.4 million) took over an hour: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/revenge-of-the-gator/game-boy-game-boy-color/points/

Although, the 500k speedrun is 11:10: https://www.speedrun.com/revenge_of_the_gator

I figured I would get things started. This was only slightly better than the run I posted in the GB completion thread. It started so promising though. In my first life I got ~740k and an extra life, but soon wasted my other three lives.

Fun fact: the sticker with cheat codes on the back of the cart has two codes to disable each of the flippers. Not sure why anyone would want to do that.

Finally broke 1 million. The run went like this:

  1. 200k
  2. 300k
  3. 700k + extra life
  4. 5k

So much for that extra life. This game is a nice change in pace from the last two games. Although these runs are starting to get pretty long.

Sorry for the double post but I figured this was a decent sized improvement. It beats the "world record" score on twin galaxies. Here's the breakdown. 

  1. 930k + extra life
  2. 20k
  3. 120k
  4. 780k

As always I had one useless life, but I had two pretty good ones this time. Also, I cleared the alligator on the top board twice on my first life for the first time. I read on the gamefaq guide that you only get one extra life, but if anyone's curious it adds one to you bonus multiplier same as getting three stars. 

I'm not sure how much more I'm going to be playing this since the runs are getting so long at this point. Unless of course someone beats me or at least is nipping at my heels. I see BriGuy just broke 1 million an hour ago (congrats), so maybe he'll force my hand.

First and last submission, I am not very good at these kinds of games I think. 606820

Speaking of GBC pinball, @Splain, I think it would be pretty intense and epic to set Pokemon Pinball's clear conditions for GBC contest as "complete the pokedex'. Would probably take the whole year!

Edit: there, got the formatting fixed. I dumped everything while on mobile just in case I didn't get to a compy in time. Really wish I could have found some more time to play this one, I was starting to get the hang of things. I can appreciate how much more content there is in Kirby's Pinball Land, it gets a little dull going for those 3 tabs on the left side over and over; I can't imagine doing it for long enough to get almost 2M points.

Yikes, lol. Uh, "100% not required." I bet someone would go for it though, a lot of people really love that game.
