Game 2: Donkey Kong


Not nominated (top 100 list)

No current high score for this game



You are a workman named Mario who climbs girders and ladders and will stop at nothing to save his stolen love from the clutches of the giant ape.
Using the joystick and the Jump button, you maneuver Mario over rolling barrels, away from falling barrels, over or away from fireballs and cement tubs, away from bouncing rivets, up and down ladders, along girders and conveyor belts, onto elevators, over rivets to remove them and over dangerous crevices, to get to where the ape holds the girl captive. For additional points, Mario gathers umbrellas, hats, purses and other bonus items that the girl has dropped on her way to the top of the building. Mario can also grab a hammer (by jumping up to it) to smash barrels, fireballs, and cement tubs for additional points but the hammer can only be used for a limited amount of time.

On the Girder, Elevator and Conveyor Belt levels, whenever Mario reaches Pauline, Donkey Kong will grab her and carry her off to the next higher level. But on the Rivet level, Mario must remove all the rivets on each and every floor by running or jumping over them. After all the rivets are removed, Donkey Kong will fall head first onto a stack of girders and be knocked out and then Mario and Pauline will be together again for good. Afterwards, the game starts over again with increased difficulty.

Just to clarify does it matter if we play the US or JAP set, I'm beastly careless either way.

I can honestly say I have never spent a geat deal of time playing DK. I spend most of my time playing the Crazy Kong in the Fish and Chip shop, so this should be good :D

It looks like out with the Zippy and in with the 4-way for this game, might just borrow one from my DK Cocktail while its in remission. And remove those micro switch buttons and put in some new leaf buttons I have.

Hmmmm I'm just going to change the little plate on the bottom of my stick (not sure what it is) so it's a 4 way :D

Crazy Kong is so much easier I can score at least double my best DK score on it.

Anyway off to try and get a score!

Its only a five minute job so will be worth it for the week, plus I have been meaning to change my buttons to leaf switch they just bounce back that little bit more quicker.
Should be a good week of Donkey Kong I just want to crack 100,000 on the US set to start with.

You have to learn the midweek bonus trick ;) Unless there is an Ace up your sleeve there Andy, now I'm not sure if you are bluffing or thats your best so far.
What level 5 ?

No bluffing here mate, thats my best so far;). Although i think i scored higher at your place the other week. Youll have to do a check for me.

L6 mate, got lucky with the elevators, died twice on L1:realmad:

There was some hard core DK that week we even played the 48-1 at the Bowling Alley in search of Games in Launceston :laugh:,with crappy joysticks and buttons, we just had to get the highscores though :laugh:

Is that just Level 6 or 6 times around from the start?
Will have a couple of games today.

Would have to be 6 times through for that score. Just getting through the first 6 "screens" would only see around 35-40K. Unless he's using hammer on a helluva lot of 800 point baddies :lol

Here's my rather poor effort - once I get the hang of the 4th level elevator screen I should crack 100k. Practice, practice, practice...

Thats a decent score mate:) 4th elevators is where that level becomes a pain in the ring.

Cheers. My main problem is I always played Crazy Kong which is much too easy in comparison - slow elevators first time through, levels play in order, etc. DK is a shock to the system after that :)

Strange.

My US Set 1 goes to 50m then back to the first stage but its now level 2.
The Jap one goes to 100m though :unsure

This is "normal" for US set

L1 1-4

L2 1-3-4

L3 1-2-3-4.

L4 1-2-1-3-4

L5 1-2-1-3-1-4

L6 through L21 all remain the same as L5

L22 1 (Kill screen).

US set is sooo much harder than the others, but somehow even though I score crap I still prefer it.

Looks like I'm not going to be very competitive in T8. After missing the first game, then this average score, now I have to go back to work and won't have any time to play.

Spread the trophies around, don't let DKong win another ;)

I've had a good year for awards and trophies already, with T7 win, and my wife and I just got trophies for a mixed pair 12hr mountain bike race win. Also had another couple of recent MTB wins, and got my IUF level 2 certificate for Unicycle.

Now I'm getting prepared for the State MTB champs next weekend, and the weekend after I'm doing my first ever 24hr MTB solo race. (faaaark)

So I won't have much time to compete here, cause I'm too busy competing everywhere else. But I will drop in and have a bash at some of the classics now and then.

Good luck everyone.

**** these barrels! Grrrrrr.

wingtipvortex

Just a little tip with the barrels( incase you dont know ), you can control, to a point, where the barrels will fall, try and group them together if you can.

No idea on that!
I have almost had enough of this game anyway :(

Heres a vid on barrel control. Point pressing is not essential for good scores, but if you want awsome scores, its the only way to go.

Hahaha some awesome stuff there and I suspect some luck - is that you wingtip or someone else's effort?

My only query is what's the go with not being killed when the timer ran out?

I wish it was me man;) Me and Dkong had the same question about the timer, i tested it, and its seems to me you get about 6 seconds after it reaches zero. Then you expire.

I swear youve done more than that score man, i thought you were around 80/85K????

Boomer says "As a matter a fact mate, he's a cop" I said "Ya jokin mate, a cop, I'm getting outta here, lets Goanna." She said "No way, I'm hangin round till Gum leaves. Besides, I dont wanna leave Jacardanda party on his own. Have you seen him? I think he's trying to crack on Toowoomba, he's already tried to Mount Isa And he'll definitely try to lead you Australiana!"
