          Ditto +2, it was Crazy Kong machines I also played, which has the more logical progression of levels. Were the US set machines ever even in Australia ? Perhaps it was a septic who nominated the US set ?

              My 3rd highest score ever, off to a good start. I had another good game going, was at 120k when the power went off from the storms here, BAH!

              Also, fringert, you're using the wrong set, the US Set 1 only has 3 letter initial highscore entries, thats probably the japan set. The difficulty varies alot between sets for this game, so everyone make sure.

                I only did the US Set 1, as it's the official King of Kong set, and Donkey Kong was nominated not Crazy Kong ( unless we do the Jap set I think which does the levels in order ), maybe when people nominate they can say the rom set to stop hysteria
                I wouldn't mind doing the Crazy Kong but I don't think anyone nominated it, I love Crazy Kong
                Seems again we had a lot of nominations from players who are not even participating, next time only nominated games from players who played at least 5 games in the last MGL will be included in the next MGL.
                Will save this fury of game nominations from the outsiders

                Then the outsiders can work there way in to nominate there games

                Just a thought, anyone want to add or disagree feel free

                And remember its all about fun

                  Yeah Crazy was indeed nominated

                  I'm really enjoying playing the US set for a change though, it's way more of a challenge from the word go, and the weirdo level order is pretty interesting though sometimes I still have no idea what's coming next.. which is a good thing!

                  Much harder to get a decent score though and it's taken me quite a few goes to get this far, which isn't that far at all

                  Massive high score on this one wingtip, oh my

                  EDIT: Score update, starting to Grok the US set a little more.

                    Donkey Kong, i'll attempt to get out of the bottom three this week. Don't like my chances though. I watch King of Kong for some inspiration last night, didnt help much

                    I hit the Rivets level last night (yes second screen) I don't believe I've ever actually played that level before! I've now mamed my cab and set my MCAs to 4way, which as we can probably appreciate, is a much better way to play in this comp.

                    I've managed to improve from 800 to 18,000+ in 4 games so not all bad, Extremely fun game when the 8way isn't cutting out on you every other second.

                        I've never played this before in any arcade! It's much harder than crazy kong and whats with the random levels? Very strange

                        Nearly half way! Fireballs on fourth level are getting hard to predict!

                          Levels are as follows...

                          L1 1-4

                          L2 1-3-4

                          L3 1-2-3-4.

                          L4 1-2-1-3-4

                          L5 1-2-1-3-1-4

                          L6 through L21 all remain the same as L5

                          L22 1 (Kill screen).

                          Great score Fringert! You have now beaten my high Whats your strategy for the elevator levels from 4 onwards? Ive tried 3 or 4 different ways, but cant come up with an answer. Please tell
