Video game concept

Player is given a score on their performance. Often an integral part of gameplay, such as the main goal.


The first video game about Score was released in 1969.

Atari, U.S. Gold and Mastertronic has published most of these games

Should NOT be used for games where "score" is actually representation of game progress. As in, there's no deviation in score when players complete the game (even this is not so strict if there's optional content, that is, the game can be finished with less than "100% completion").
