I have one question? I was comparing the scoreboard and see some of you guys with 85/40 on achievements. Others with 88/40. What is this, because im knew on the site.....

Mutawarrior
That is hardcore mode. It gives you double the points but you can't use save states (I don't know why anyone would want to because it defeats the purpose).

Because I finished in hardcore mode and only got 80/40. No savestates or anything. That's why I asked. Because of ranking porposes.

Added leaderboards.

*Note: for the leaderboards, make sure the game has music when you play since sometimes music stops playing if you sit through the demo. They won't start up if the music is not playing when Simon is controllable.

For FDS only version 1.2 is linked, since it is the only version available with a clean dump.
