I had a few games of this a few months ago, and I completely and utterly suck at it :cry

I'll try and fire it up in a sec and post my starting score shortly. I don't expect to finish in the top 5 of this one :laugh:

Hey Jamma, any chance at doing a leaderboard update in the next min or two? I wanna be the current champ :D

Never played this in the arcade. Did play it on my Atari 800xl. It's been a long time since then and cant seem to remember the patterns apart from the first one and the key pattern. Anyway, heres my effort after my first few games. Have made it past the rope pattern second time around. Keep dying on the next pattern.

I predict that the existing MGL record (about 40k) will fall again over the next few days

Score:21000

I have a DKJR cab here at home so I'm pretty well practiced, but I just can't handle the level 4+ difficulty for any length of time. My cab has the bootleg romset though which is a tad easier than this brutal US set.

Never played this one. Classic game though and some big scores to contend with - MAME record on TG is 1,161,100 - arcade is 1,307,500 (with Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe in the top 3) Any chance of joining their ranks Kane? Is your cab legit for an arcade score?

Think I might try my luck at this and skip Bomb Jack. Don't reckon I've got what it takes to compete with you guys there.

My cab is just an aussie junker frankencab cocktail with a bootleg DKJR board, nothing even remotely legit. :)

Based on previous MGL Nintendo nominations from Kane I think he may well be the man to beat on this one :) Though so far, MGL rookies have been making their presence felt this tourney in a big way, which is great to see :cool:

Rookie about sums it up when it comes to this game for me :-/ Here is my first feeble attempt...

I think once i get the hang of how low birds are going to drop when they turn then it will make life a lot easier... Also I know it is early days, but how the hell do you get a big jump off the spring?

Its all about timing, hit the jump button again when spring is at its lowest.

My 2nd day effort below - 31,700. 2nd key/lock stage is a nightmare. Birds fly right to the bottom.

Agree on the frustrating game, was having trouble with the keys, then the big spring jump.

Time and time again, had one good game out of about 20. Will have to practice more, would like to get better at this game.

I find for me, the earlier levels of DKJr are easier than the earlier levels of DK, but the later levels of DKJr are harder than the later levels of DK.

But like DK, DKJr requires a lot of practice to get good at, much longer than 2 weeks I think.

This is my second time around with it on the MGL, and find I am a lot better player than last time though still way off the mark.

Really is a patient game, its not a fast moving game although enemies seem frantic on the screen, it really is about timing.

Think I can push that elusive 50,000 barrier anyway.

Great score btw :D

:P The reason for passing on the MGL duties was because i am not up to it ATM,

1. Off home site irregularly and the for some reason can not post edit etc on the IPad at work or out, any other forum OK just this one for some reason

2. Have a LOT of stuff going on in my life ATM, not even sure where I will be living in 30 days.

3. Passed the duties over to Jammasized as he was doing such a great job of a similar setup on another forum but not many players. His talents are some of the best.

4. Added a second person in ( WIngtipvortex) to update scores, select games etc as the format has grown.

5. I was stuck at home as a carer when I was running it so was easy to be there to update everything on time,.

So thats the public naked explanation release


PS I will fix your score Farten

Hehe

I read the same in your 'Wongtopvirtex', not that it was an error, but more of a subtle hint for Wongtop to step up.

Dkong did an awesome job of running the MGL for quite a few comps but it is a lot of work, especially now with almost 30-40% increase in players. So if there's errors in names or stuffups in scores then stiff bickys, it will be fixed when time allows :)

Yes it's hard, it's third in my most played list.
Still can't get past the birds on the spring stage. They get just get under the gap in the platform, need to time it better and not panic.
I could probably get a better score by repeating early stages on purpose!

Not much love for the little monkey it seems ? Seems to a bit of a meh vibe about scores for this game..

Brad
21st July 2011, 01:52 PM
I think due to the almost impossible mission of completing the second key stage LOL! I have scores to submit but I've had so little time to play let alone submit a score. I'll try to get scores for this and Pengo up by saturday at the latest but will try tonight. Only played 5-6 games of this and 2 games of Pengo though =(

Brad

Pelly
21st July 2011, 02:07 PM
I have recently been constantly getting to the second spring level so a 100k score should not be far away... I am more of a chance of doing well on this rather than Pengo so will keep on trying :P

wingtipvortex
21st July 2011, 08:23 PM
Second key stage hint. You can almost walk across the TOP of them and they will jump up considerably, hence avoiding the bottom level of birds altogether:) Some may know this, some may not.

That's the wrong romset Ramere, the US set you can only enter your initials as 3 characters, you must be playing the Japan set which is very different in the level order and difficulty etc.

Ramere
23rd July 2011, 02:40 PM

The Jap version was the one I grew up playing at the Port Sorell Milkbar so didn't think twice about it...
