New High Score!

Yes, it is a rare treat to surpass my typical game-playing abilities, and today I set a personal best score at my Quikman video game.  I think it helped playing it on a real VIC 20, too, although it really should not matter.  Perhaps there is old muscle memory kicking in from squeezing the bat-handled joystick.  Or, maybe it is the smoother animation that can only come from a 13″ phosphor screen, flickering away at 60hz.  Regardless, I will be extremely challenged to make it back to the 3rd key level, as shown from this camera-phone picture:
