Asteroids High Score Record Beaten

On April 5th, the 28 year old Asteroids high score was surpassed by John McAllister, a 41 year old locksmith from Seattle, Washington. He only raised the bar a little, from 41,336,440 to 41,338,740, but considering it took 58 hours to accomplish, he did something approaching the limits of human endurance. The previous high score was set in 1982 by then 15 year-old Scott Safran (now deceased) after 60 hours of play, and up until now it was considered unbreakable. McAllister's score still needs to be verified by Twin Galaxies, the world authority on player rankings. There have been many attempts at beating Safran's score over the years, including Bill Carlton's 2004 run which ended when his machine failed at the 27 hour mark with a score of 12,756,970, putting him at 15th (soon to be 16th) in the all-time rankings at Twin Galaxies.
