Caitlin Oliver, a 30-year-old Chicago native, achieved the new record score of 493,700 points on Saturday, October 19 while playing live at Windy City destination Galloping Ghost Arcade. Oliver's new mark, which was set during a live internet broadcast, shatters the previous record mark of 373,100 points set last year at the same location by Anthony Paparo, according to the Aurcade high score database. The score has been submitted to longtime world record adjudicators Twin Galaxies for complete verification.
Caitlin's new world record mark makes her the first woman in almost 30 years to set a world record on a video arcade game. It also marks the latest chapter in a longtime history with the Namco classic.
