Default First Game ever clocked!!!

Mine was an arcade game called Juno First, used to play it outside of the Big W store at Strathpine when I worked there during school holidays. (Circa 1984)

Was quite disappointed the first time I clocked it, cause the score did actually go back to 0 and dispite the 34 levels I had been thru, the high score sheet only had me at 7th. (130,000)

So next time I approached the million, I purposely crashed and died at around 998,000 or so points and the scored lived on at number 1...

Elevator Action, as I mentioned in another thread, I thought I was a chance with Pac Man, that is until later in life finding how may levels there actually were, I estimate i wasnt even half way. I now have the complete guide someone has done for pacman, it tells you each turn to take on each level for the perfect score, HUH? How am i supposed to read it and play at the same time.

Hmm maybe I could enter each pacman maze into a GPS, and have it voice activated, Turn left at Blinky the Ghost

Mine was missile command! I remember it took several hours to reach one mill and then nothing happened other than the score reset to 0. I was so dissappointed (I thought I'd at least unlock some congradulation message)

hand held game....
Donkey Kong 2, could clock it 3 times running before i died and got double points after the first 300 points...i think (it was 25 years ago).

First arcade game to clock was 20c one called Twin Cobra. Put my money in at the local allsports and clock it three times over but by the third round it was going so fast i could barely see the bullets. The funny thing about it was the other kids would come up just as i put my money in and they`d say, "oh no we`ll be back in an hour"....he he he
