I'm interested in running a Splatterhouse world record attempt at an Aurcade-supported arcade. While I was searching around for strategies and previous attempts, I found the current world record holder's video at
What interests me is this piece of the description:
It's worth noting that this run follows the Twin Galaxies & Aurcade ruleset for score in this game, which bans the use of the double KO tactic on the final boss, which is otherwise the most lucrative option to cash out your extra lives. If this were allowed, then you would have to set up guaranteed double KO's with the blue orb timer, which is something on the order of 14+ minutes per double KO. You could also die to rocks at the end, but if you're on a good pace, the guaranteed route is the best option for consistency. Without the restrictions in this category, scores in the 1.2 - 1.3 million point range are possible.
This is news to me. I found the game on Aurcade and it only lists dip switch positions and difficulty, nothing about forbidden strategies.
In general, where are Aurcade performance restrictions located?
