    Pitiful, but that will do as a starting score. My eyeballs are hanging out of my head from working all weekend, I'll give it a decent shot in the morning before work if I wake up earlier enough

      Decided to grab my chance to lead this thing. Not that it'll last too long. Had all 4 lives going into L4. Died twice on 4-1. Once to 3 awkwardly spaced barrels and once to a heat seaking wild barrel. The other 2 lives were lost on the dreaded L4 elevators.

          Short lived, but you were winning this... even if it was only for 53 minutes Rob

          No surprises here, but kane nearly knocks off last years winning score in the first 3 hours of the tournament

            Well I managed to hold top spot for 53 minutes.

            Decided to have another go maybe try for 90K or 100K if I got lucky. Died once on L3 elevators. Can't actually remember the second death but it was before the L4 elevators. Made it to the safe spot, waited then made it up the bloody ladder first time!

            Got to L5 elevators with a new PB of 119,200 and decided to grab the prize for an even 120K. Figured that was all I would score and L4 was a fluke. Made it to the safe spot, waited then made it up the bloody ladder first time again!

            L6. Made it to the safe spot, waited then did it again. Up the ladder first time. Third death on 6-5 and final death on the L6 rivets.

            Right now I sit here with a new Donkey Kong PB thinking "what the #@%$ just happened." And yes the game was recorded.

            Cheers

            Rob

                  What an ugly game that was. Died in some really stupid places as you can see on my screen shot Copped way more than my fair share of wild barrels, flaming barrels climbing quickly too the top of the barrels stage and firefoxes being extremely uncooperative on the rivets level.

                  Should keep the recording though, pulled a move on level 4-3 that the pro's would be proud off - so excited with the move that I died straight after it

                  Might get time for one more game this morning, then I'll probably have to wait until tonight to give it another go

                        Got into a really good rhythm, but put off due to the fact that I need to get back to work

                        More practice tonight

                          Just to make us all feel better about our DK skills, Dean Saglio has just had this score verified by TG:

                          Score: 619,200 / Points
                          Player: Dean Saglio
                          Date Achieved: 05/06/2012

                          Not bad considering this was the No Hammer variation of the game

                            Yeah, that's a fine score, I wonder if that's up to the kill screen or not, it'd have to be pretty close I think...

                              Level 17 Rivets. Lost two of his lives before 200K which is a big tip: Never ever throw a game away, you only get 4 lives in DK but one of those lives could net you 300K (No Hammer) or 600K using the hammer. My best is only 243K, but I'm guessing the majority of the points in that game were on one life, you just seem to get into a rhythm in this game and can reel off 100,000 without even looking like dying.
