A quest for one million points on Tron arcade

I’ve always loved the Tron arcade game since it came out in the early 80’s. I couldn’t resist the new release of the little 1 up home version and picked this up:

I’m setting a goal to try to reach one million points. I’ve scored about 270,000 on the arcade game at Funspot about 15 years ago. I don’t know if I can succeed. The controls on this thing aren’t as nice as the real arcade. Maybe I’m too old and no longer have the skills. Who knows.

Anyway, I’m going to document my journey win or lose here.

Very first game on the machine.

41,145

Controls aren’t the best but I feel they are good enough. There is a nifty online leaderboard linked to the game.

My small first score puts me in 109th place on the leaderboard.

Don’t kill yourself if you get stuck at 999,999.

Eh, I’d consider that a win.

Played a few more games. I can’t remember my patterns I used to use and I’m having trouble getting speed on the trigger finger.

Didn’t break 100k but it’s enough to get me to 21th place on the leader board.

I don’t care for the 1up arcade cabinets, but that one does look pretty sweet. Especially with the matching chair. Tron is such a great and unique game. That is one of the few movie-based games that actually had effort put into it back in the 80s IMO.
