The highest Bedlam 2 score reported was from David Johnston (Huntsville, AL) with a score of 2,380,525 on 5/25/98. Due to his work with Ground Zero Software on Bedlam 2 his score wasn't part of the official top 25 scores. We had put together a Bedlam 2 strategy page and intended to list the strategies of the top 5 players to assist others in obtaining higher scores.

The Bedlam 2 scoring contest is now closed.

Above is the list of players from around the world who held a top 25 score for Bedlam 2 at the end of the year-long contest, on June 4, 1998. We held this contest to see who could obtain the highest scores in Bedlam 2.

This was not a high score contest, per se. We tracked these scores to monitor how everyone's score compared with other players from around the world. Instead of rewarding large value prizes to the best 3 players (which is what a typical high score contest might consist of) we had a different kind of Bedlam 2 "giveaway".

On June 4, 1998, Ground Zero Software conducted a random drawing to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the release of Bedlam 2, our first major Macintosh title. The drawing randomly picked a first, second, and third place winner from our list of [paying] Bedlam 2 registered users to win $125, $100, and $75, respectively. Out of (only) 385 registered users on Bedlam 2's one year anniversary the winners were:

1st - Serial #480, Monique Neubourg (Paris, France)
2nd - Serial #431, Richard Hunt (Bowling Green, KY)
3rd - Serial #234, P. Lotsch-Morriss (Millbrook, NY)

This method was chosen to give everyone an equal opportunity of winning, regardless of Bedlam 2 game-playing skills. It was another way for us to say "thanks" to those who support Ground Zero Software by registering Bedlam 2 and, most importantly, to thank those who support Macintosh shareware in general. When the contest closed, the registered users with a top 25 score received a cool Bedlam 2 t-shirt for participating in the high score challenge. Note: it didn't include all of the names listed in the top 25 since some of the names above were from the same registration. You'll notice where we had to expand the list for a few spaces. Verification of each player's score was required when the contest ended.

The contest was void where prohibited.

The latest version of Bedlam 2 is 1.0.6.
