Hey there OOO... C4mony is my son and whenever I play in the MGL he has a few games of whatever game is up but asked if he could give it a go and upload some scores. He will be playing on my cabinet and got into gaming through my keen attitude towards them.

He isn't expecting to do real well but thought he'd join in the fun.

Check out what it's like to play on the real Donkey Kong Junior arcade machine ... back in the day ... the early 80s ...


http://youtu.be/pnP1bteAXK8

Three quotes or thereabouts in the show stick to mind ...
1. "Jim the technician scored 55K without losing a monkey."
2. "The kids high score back then was 78K."
3. "I am glad you have a good sense of humour ..." - Yes we all need that in the MGL ... :)

And how many got the Congo Bongo question right?
Incredibly it's never been played before in the MGL ... maybe one day ... :rolleyes

Edit loaded it up on MAME OS X and its the US one.

There's more than one version ?? confused now...

on mine 2nd level is what i think you are refering to the "key level" being just a lot of ropes with keys.

Am i using the wrong version ??

Tip for beginners - play this while pissed, level 2 is way easier that way.

I think it was said in KoK that the average player can't get passed 1-1 on DK - DKjr takes difficulty to a whole new level. I wouldn't have wasted more than about $1 on DKjr BITD - way to hard way too quick - give the player some value for money FFS.

I get what you are saying here and understand why, but really it is predictable and controllable and the collision detection is correct, I think it's just difficult :)

I agree Rat. It is slightly clunky but that's mainly because I'm not used to it....yet ;)

DK is hard as hell when you first start playing it, but there are nuances and things to look out for. I imagine the same is true for this game.

Haha don't mind me I'm just having a whinge. I'll play it every night, I just get frustrated quickly as I did bitd - as John said it was terrible value for money even at 20c a crack. I guess I like CK and am much better at it because my parents owned a takeaway shop and we had that and galaga in the shop so I got good at those. Dkjr looks like so much fun, typical Nintendo so colourful and 'fruity' but it's a steep learning curve. Whereas you get the odd easy/predictable level in DK/CK even in later rounds there's no rest in junior, I still die regularly on 1-1, but that's probably just me lol.

The Donkey Kongs 1 and 2 were great at eating your money BITD.
I can see the MGL mystery prize 'Blinky' on the keychain.

Plus from which of the 50 states? hmmmm ... 'Somewhere' in New England?
And how about a bit of an arcade intro paragraph on CrazyKongFan - you know ... gaming BITD, game likes, what the hell is happening ... tell all here ... :)

Here's an example for starters ... post no. 19, 26-May-2014, MGL 21 Pac-Land thread ,thanks mark68 ... :023:



There's not much to tell actually.
The first cabinet game I played was Lunar Lander, out front of the local 4 Square.
It would have been about 1979/80 I suppose.
Over the next few years roller skating became the craze, lucky for me there was a rink bike riding distance from my house.
They had quite a few game there. I still remember trying to play Scramble at a cocktail machine, nursing a freshly broken wrist(that night).
That was on the night of April 4th 1981. A 4 hour skate session on the eve of my birthday. I was at the hospital as I turned 13.
There was another skating rink we used go to behind Carousel shopping centre, they had a game pit as well.
Over the next few years I got to play a few games, but I only remember a few of them.
Another popular place to go was Cinema City in Perth, they had a large selection of games to play.
I remember playing Asteroids at the cinema with my parents watching me and I remember playing Vanguard at a local deli.
I know I played more, but I just can't remember them.
August 1984 I started working full time, my first job ever.
Imagine that, a 16 year old with a pocket full of disposable income, in the golden age of arcade games.
Some of the games I remember from this time are,
Dragons Lair, Space Ace, Super Mario(I bought a NES because of this game), Pac-Land, Gauntlet, Hyper Olympics, Hyper Sports,
Slap-fight, Smash TV, Virtua Fighter, Bombjack, Moonpatrol, Quix, Missile Command, Defender, Dig Dug, Galaga, Donkey Kong,
Rygar, Bubble Bobble, Snow Bros, Loki, Circus Charlie, Amidar, Turkey Shoot(I would love to have one of these machines)...
This list would go on for ages.
I spent almost every Friday night when I started working, in the city, going from Timezone to Timezome.
I picked up a couple of tips and cheats from others at the arcade, but was never good enough to challenge the good players.
But I had fun all the same.

- - - Updated - - -

Oh and I found that Somewhere, yet still no state ...

Out on the road like a low-down Joe
And the bar where we are is so cool I'd like to stay
Misunderstood like I knew I would be
The one I care for don't mind, she's built that way
I would gladly offer you my love
In this hotel in Somewhere U.S.A.

This rental car never went so far
But with each passing mile on more dream has turned to clay
Now that we've met and your eyes are all wet
Let me fetch my guitar, there's a song I'd like to play
I would gladly offer you my song
In this hotel in Somewhere U.S.A.

One never knows where the good times
If you got some to spend,we'll do anything you say
I'd never lie, well you know I've tried
Though you think it's the drink that has made me behave this way
I would gladly offer you my love
In this hotel in Somewhere U.S.A

Too lazy to log onto TG to check the record, are you taking a shot at it? Hopefully in a few weeks I'll have time to sit and watch some streaming at night if you are going to take a shot at the WR.

You seriously need to get your hands on a real Galaga cab and take down the WR, if you make the change from controller/keyboard to Galaga as easily as I did to BnJ then you will smash the Galaga records one after the other.

Trying to push it up as high as possible. Arcade record is 4.5m. I'll be playing it off and on between MGL games, so should be streaming a bit.

Have you got a machine to put a PCB in? I got my machine for about $500 (included fitting and making the harness for the PCB which was a right pain in the arse according to Marty who did it). If you need some cash, start a crowd funding site, if Allen Staal can get money to be flown to the USA then you will easily get money from AA and DKF to get a Galaga machine together.

Five people crack the 100K including a nice score from CrazyKongFan for 2nd place, Brad during uni studies for 3rd, RMacauley an early score for 4th place and kane ups to 113K at the end.
Pelly scores a nice high 80K and camaro a good 75K.

Grats Barra !!

Was a fun game, i could get to the spring level on the first man, but couldn't make it through.

Well done Barra . That's a great score. I really struggled on the key stage. My eyes couldn't keep an eye on horizonal and vertical traveling bad guys at the same time

Congrats Barra but considering how quickly you killscreened DK I figured you'd pick this one up without too much trouble.

Now you need to killscreen DKjr and really piss BA off. :lol

Well done Barra

As crappy as my score was, I think it was the first time I beat the 1st key screen :lol

It's not a bad game, but I still prefer DK.
