Sorry for the wait.
The game for this challenge will be Metro-Cross, by Namco.
Just to get you all going, and not waiting on me any longer, I will use the score from the below video as the starting point.
This game gives you ONE LIFE!
If you do not make it to the end of the stage before the time runs out, then you die and game over.
So, ONE Credit, ONE Life to get the highest score you can.
I like this game because it requires you to memorize the stages, like many of the NES games I had in the past.
My score in the video is 22850
.LETS GET READY TO RUUUUUMMMMMBLE.
