    HILLSBORO, Ore. -- A Portland man is currently attempting to beat the world record score for the classic Atari game "Missile Command."

    Bill Carlton has been playing for 24 consecutive hours in the basement of a Hillsboro home on an arcade machine, and he's expected to play through Monday.

    The current recond is 80.3 million points--a record set in December 1982 by Victor Ali, according to game-scoring authority Twin Galaxies. According to the organization's website, Carlton's previous best was 45.8 million points, set in 2008.

    Carlton is one of the leading players of "Missile Command." He was the subject of a movie caled "High Score," which followed a previous attempt to beat the record.

    Carlon is vying for the new record in the same Hillsboro home in which John McAllister beat the "Asteroids" world record in April.

    Sounds... Unpleasant. But, you know, if you need to be remembered, right? I never cared much for Missile Command.
