That wen't pretty well, even though I was half-watching Troldspejlet and not really paying attention...
10446 I was visiting the Brooklyn Barcade, the original arcade bar, for my birthday with Malu. It's a very lively and charming place serving craft beer to a room packed full of excited Brooklyn residents. Noone was playing the Arkanoid machine in the corner next to the restrooms and the quarter dispenser. I never tried Arkanoid with a real paddle controller, it felt exactly how I imagined - smooth and responsive.
10447Got the score 63940.
The built-in hiscore of 50,000 was not beaten, so I set that as my goal. After a bunch of quarters were spent, I had the no. 1 score of 63,940.
