I'm going for the marathon Pac Man score on the 20th anniversary cab at Play Blackpool next month.

The anniversary cab has a 'continue' feature when all lives are exhausted, so when I've spent all lives on the splitscreen level 256, I'll continue to eat the hidden dots (incidentally, there's 10 on the anniversary cab Wink) and eventually trigger the second key. When enough dots are then eaten, the game should trigger the board advance and start from the cherry at 9th key speed.
This really is a test of endurance and concentration. If you wain on 9th key speed, it's very difficult to recover unless you're really proficient at freehand grouping. Even then, it's tough LOL

Tim Balderramos of the US holds the current record at 6.3 million. That's nearly 10 hours play! Over 500 boards corner perfect  ........ 

I'll be doing this on the Saturday and hopefully on the Sunday going for another perfect score.

I'm of course, doing this mental thing for a good cause LOL Blackpool Carers Centre

Big thanks to Andy at Arcadeclub for the donation of the original cabs and to James (RGP) for his technical expertise and setting this up at the event Cool

Please support me to raise something for this great cause Clap

DONATE -

After nearly 11 hours of playing, I beat the score of Tim Balderramos. I finished on 6.532 million and probably something in the region of 540 boards

Thanks once again to Andy and James for making this happen.
