    Point pressing is a little different in DK because you have a counter the constantly ticks down, you just can't hang on one screen forever.

    I can pretty regularly make it to L4 without losing a life, so I do point press on the rivet screens when possible. I've tried point pressing on the barrel screen and this just leads to early deaths, so I don't do it - with the exception of grabbing the top hammer, but that's hardly point pressing IMO.

    I've also seen point pressing on the spring stage, but it's hard IMO and the point pay off is not worth the trouble for my level of game.

    If you are starting out, I would suggest that the rivet stage is a good place to point press when the opportunity arises, some easy free points and it also gives your brain a little bit of a break before going to the next level.

    And Fire_Power, don't worry about your early score, go back and have a look at the last Kong Off, I was in exactly the same position as you. This game went from being a ho-hum game to just about my favourite after watching King of Kong and playing in the last Kong Off Keep at it, as you learn the game becomes that much more additive.

      Ah the old point pressing thing. Btw Ed209..Who said point pressing wasn't accepted, we let you take ghosts and goblins, right ? :

      Anyway, its an art form in dk, I think we can say its an exception. Plus, Theres absolutely no way you can mindlessly point press in dk and compete with the big scores, unlike some other games. Its just not possible.

      Not posting anything just yet, too embarrassed =)

        I totally earned that win! You just don't understand my art.

          New pb for me.

          I'm at home with my 3yr old today, might sneak in a few more games...
          Hope I don't get that dreaded call from down the hall -'daddy, wipe my butt'

                Don't worry about nudging me out of 3rd, I aint done yet

                Can you post your screen shot again, I get nothing on the link you posted so can't verify the score.

                Edit:

                That's better, updating table now

                      Forgot to say, recorded my game, so I big improvement on my TG score if I don't manage any better - but still a week and a half to go

                      Didn't die once on the elevators either, think every death was on the barrels stage

                        Yeah, i lied More like cant get past the 150k brick I have in my ass at the moment
                        The worst thing I have ever done on this game is start to point press, it has really pulled my scores back......

                          I know what you mean, I point press on rivets of L1 and L2 and that is it.

                          Also something I've found that has helped me a bit with wild barrels - I pretty much just gun it in the same direction when I'm on the lower part of the level, find I avoid them way more than back tracking. Still occasionally get smashed on the head when I'm directly below kong, don't think their is much you can do about this, just bad luck I guess?

                            Just did a quick calculation from my game last night, if I had have hit the kill screen (yeah I know ) I would have scored between 800k and 850k. Plenty of room left for point pressing in my game

                            Nearly the weekend Hope we see some more and bigger scores coming in, surely someone can give Kane a scare

                                I'm planning to improve over the weekend too, I managed a 368k game yesterday so should be getting into the 400s any time now
