Better still.
106,660.
 
I could have got pretty close to the TG high score as I was on a level full of diamonds with none needed to exit but I went and dropped a rock on my head...

I actually have the original board for this. I believe it is quite rare.

Just had another game to record the .inp.
(Which I can't upload...)
 
 
I could not figure out the last level I got to.
I knew what I needed to do but couldn't work out how to do it in the time.
 
Had I scored at the same rate as the previous game I would have beaten the TG score by a few thousand. I'm sure I had another bonus stage before which may account for the missing points, and an extra life.

No.
Muerto already asked about my score for joinem.
My reply was thus:
"Firstly, I am not bothered enough about having my name in lights to want to download a version of MAME which my ROMs may or may not work with, possibly requiring a fresh download.
Secondly, I don't want to go through the hassle involved in getting the score verified.
(Have you read the susmission instructions?)"

Okay.
I've been experimenting with starting on different worlds to see if I could get a higher score that way. Starting on World 5, I've been able to get close but the levels need a bit of working out.
 
Then I checked TG only to find that I was playing on the wrong settings.
I had the difficulty set to medium instead of hard so I changed it to hard and either MAME has the dips wrong or Data East have a strange idea of hard.
Either way I found it no more difficult and beat the high score by quite a bit...
 
 
 
Both my old and new high scores were starting on world 1 and the 5 scores between were all starting on world 5.

I think I have it now.
The level layouts and enemy configuration stay the same at all difficulty levels, the only thing which changes is the sart time.
World 1 Level 1:
Easy = 30s
Medium = 22s
Hard = 25s
Hardest = 20
 
I think we can take it that MAME (my version, at least) has the dips wrong and that medium and hard are reversed, in which case I was using the correct difficulty setting originally and my score of 127,280 stands.
 
The score of 148,100 is not legitimate for the purposes of this challenge.

As a result of the nagging I have now submitted a score to TG.

I only beat the existing high score by 600pts this time but got one level further.

File sent.
I'm slightly concerned that it didn't get through to TG as I haven't had the automated email response yet. The other two came through in minutes.
