According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Phil Day scored 3.44 million after just over two hours play on Saturday night, eclipsing the previous best of 2.7 million set by an American player two years ago. Day told the SMH he celebrated the event quietly.
“There was no one else around. I wanted to signify that I had reached the 2.7 million mark for the video recording of the attempt, but I couldn’t get too excited and I was pretty exhausted.”
Congrats, Phil. Any man who has an original 1981 Galaga machine in their home gets our respect. Doubly so for being so awesome at it.
