Zaccaria Pinball

Played on Nintendo Switch, usually in vertical orientation with the FlipGrip accessory.

I am logging only the scores where I am in the top 10. Zaccaria Pinball features dozens of tables with many different modes of play on each, so otherwise this would become way too long.

Zero Gunner 2+

Played on Nintendo Switch. Do note that Zero Gunner 2+ is a complete remake from scratch, as the original source code for Zero Gunner 2 was lost. So the scores cannot compare to the original.

[[Child]]
score: 365_902
handle: "HUQ"
stage: "1-6"
ship_type: "Apache"

[[Very Hard]]
score: 150_502
handle: "HUQ"
stage: "1-4"
ship_type: "Comanche"

  1. I realise TOML has its issues, but I find YAML too complex and error-prone, and do not like to write (or read) JSON by hand. NestedText would be an option, but is perhaps too unwieldy on mobile screens (similar to YAML). The one feature that I really like about TOML is that it supports decimal delimiters – since many arcade(-like) games have scores in mega, giga, tera points (and beyond), this makes it much easier to read.
