I have just read at The Telegraph that the previous record high score for Asteroids set by 15-year-old Scott Safran in 1982 has recently been broken.
I had no idea that such records still existed and am now left wondering whether similar records exist for Pac Man, Frogger, Space Invaders, Defender etc.
I feel some research is needed.
Am now thinking of all those hours hiding from the sun in the cellar of the Hotel Belvedere, Crete, 1982 playing Space Invaders and Galaxy Quest.
Not to mention wreaking havoc with ‘holiday friend’ Andrew throughout the hotel, placing large chairs in lifts, covering roof mounted floodlights with boards and insisting the bar staff play my newly acquired Duran Duran Rio album on their cassette player.
