ATARI VCS/2600 Scoreboard 

Updated 4-17-2017


This is a compilation of top VCS scores from various sources.  All scores are NTSC at default settings, set on original consoles, unless noted. 

The requirements (subject to change) are:

The game must be played on an original Atari-made NTSC VCS/2600 console - no 3rd-party systems or modules.  No emulators allowed!

Only original cartridges, modified Supercharger cartridges, or Harmony cartridges allowed.  Only ROMs of original games or latest version of prototypes are tracked - no hacks or pirate versions (unless the original versions were never archived).  No Cuttle Carts, Krokodile carts, or similar devices allowed. 

Custom controllers are allowed, as long as they don't alter or modify the directional controls for speed in games like Decathlon and Track & Field.

Custom controllers are allowed, as long as they don't alter or modify the directional controls (i.e. one that rapidly switches back-and-forth the left+right directions for games like Decathlon).

No exploiting glitches or scoring anomalies.  Check the Easter egg page for the most recent listing of them.

Nobody can assist you with playing the game (i.e. taking control of the game for you).

Pausing is allowed, either with a hardware mod or a game software feature.  The focus here is on high scores, not physical endurance records.

Auto-firing (either with 3rd-party controllers or add-on devices) is also allowed for all but a few games (which aren't tracked, like Kung-Fu Master and RealSports Boxing).

All contest submissions must be recorded and include footage showing the system, controller(s), and cartridge.  The footage also needs to show the game being powered up and started, along with the Difficulty switch settings and what game variation is being used (unless this can be ascertained by watching the video), as well as the controller in use during the game.  The footage can either be transferred to DVD and sent to us, or uploaded to sites like YouTube or Vimeo and accessible to everyone.  It should include a card onscreen with your full name (or the video watermarked with your name), but this is not required (it's only to protect your video).

Any player found to have knowingly cheated or lied about what format or version they used will have all their scores removed. 

If you have any additions, suggestions, or corrections, please email me.

Ron Corcoran - former disgraced Twin Galaxies ref who verified his own scores against TG's rules, and set most using an emulator w/o noting it.  His scores are sadly still in TG's database.

Rodrigo Lopes - used PAL versions to tie or break several Twin Galaxies scores on prominent titles like Decathlon and Pitfall.

Robert Mruczek - former disgraced Twin Galaxies ref who supported known cheaters like Corcoran and Lopes and refused to remove their scores, removed legitimate scores from several players w/o legitimate reasons or proof (such as falsely claiming there's 2 different ROM versions of Donkey Kong), which in many cases left himself with the top score, and viewed PAL and emulator scores as being equal to NTSC which allowed players like Lopes to receive credit for breaking several long-standing records.

Wilson Oyama "oyamafamily" - caught using emulator save states on another scoreboard.  Also suspected of editing his videos.
