Leaderboards are going down for a bit till I can figure out what's wrong with them.
ZZKer 12 May 2021 23:15
Leaderboards are fixed. I didn't properly clear them when the difficulty was reset.

You're most welcome! I'm happy to see people playing my favorite 2600 game.

Updated the set a bit. Now that it's had some play, I can see some of the achievements were under scored (and one over scored). Score 135 > 177
