Twin Galaxies

Twin Galaxies

By Ryan Nichols

Twin Galaxies is the first and only organization to officially keep world records, recognized by Guiness, for Video Games. They have been the source to find high scores since their establishment in 1981. Their High Score Database is readily available on their website http://www.twingalaxies.com, and the more popular scores are published by Guinness annually. This application is yet another way to obtain scores, using your Apple iPhone.

The Twin Galaxies App lets you search for games by name. You are returned a list of games, sorted by name, console, and mode played. Once you choose your game, you are returned a top 10 list of current high scores, sorted by Rank. Details readily available are the person who obtained the high score, the points acquired, and the percentage of difference from the #1 score. If the score is clicked, you are redirected to a website with even more details of the score, such as the day it was acquired and how it was authenticated by Twin Galaxies. Recent searches are cached for convenience.

Future versions will include news updates.
