Billy Joe Cain, who won the Texas Defender Championships in 1982, proved he could still defend earth from alien invaders at the  Star World’s Arcade Summer Sizzle event Aug. 3.

Billy set a number of unique records on Defender at the event, including the following:

As part of the Classic Crazy Challenge, Billy set an initial score of 134,600 points on the first life, but eventually upped that score, ending with 144,750 points on his first life.  Players in the Classic Crazy Challenge were asked to submit their highest score set on the first life of play.  Many players, Billy included, kept trying over and over to up their score before they finally submitted their top score.

Billy also set two records on the same game.  The first record he set was Fastest Time to 1 Million Points, which he achieved in 50 minutes and 12 seconds.  He then continued playing from there to see how many points he could achieve in an hour of play.  His final score after an hour was 1,251,750.

Not satisfied to end his run there, Billy also played a round of Stargate on Industry Standard Tournament Settings.  While he didn’t set a world record with that run, he did score high enough to place fourth on those tournament settings, with a score of 130,425.

Billy’s son, Matthew Cain, also participated in setting records, playing on the 3-player settings on Stargate and setting a score of 54,750.

Congratulations to both Billy and Matthew for the records set at the Star Worlds Arcade Summer Sizzle Event.
