      Included a 250K jump. Apart from that nothing to write home about. Just getting in quick in case Lexmark crashes this party.

      Just for the record my PB is 629K. Never submitted it to TG.

              Enjoying this more than the last couple of games. Can't seem to master the coconut throwing stage, if I don't get up the top straight away then I'm pretty much stuffed.

                  Early tip from a crap player: 1st screen, grab the first beer, jump the snake and then run into it. The game forgives your for being useless and gives you another go without losing a life and you keep the 500 odd points you gained


                  The stupid coconut stage is driving me batty. Is there some trick, or is it just skill in getting straight to the top before the stupid monkey throws too many coconuts? I find getting to the top of the ladder easier in DK than I do in this

                  My score of 100,000 is really just more dumb luck and getting passed that stupid monkey, the couple of times I've progressed I then choke straight away on the bonus life stage.

                      Hey guys. I would like to offer some basic tips that will make the game easier for you to play. AND score more points.

                      1...after the first 2 rounds, when you start a new round, hold your joy stick/key, RIGHT for a BRIEF moment then quickly go LEFT and down the left side AND STAY on the left side until all the animals are out!...this will force most the animals to come out running the same way!! (see video below)

                      2....NEVER close in the bottom of the cage(see video below).......... (you can close it in near the END of a round if you have a net, this will knock animals in to the middle for bonus points at the end.

                      3..you can get HUGE jumps in this game if you use the net to GROUP the animals(see video below)......

                      Good luck guys, i'm looking forward to seeing the final scores!!

                          I believe John has made a 30Mil jump twice in one game

                          Edit: Alright, so how do you work out your final score? Do you have to just replay the game and add up all the points?

                            I guess that'd be the only way! Seems crazy to have a multiplier so huge that it goes way beyond anything that the score can register. Nice technique though. It'll certainly change the way I'm playing the game over the next week or so.

                              The high score table shows the actual score up to 99M. Don't know about 100M and above.
