As others have pointed out, it looks as though the "800" sprite actually does appear for a frame, and then is replaced by the "100" sprite. So, it would seem that two point-award sprites cannot be rendered at the same time. Now I was wondering what would happen during a "true" simultaneous award? Is it even possible? Those who play/watch DK Junior are aware of the extra-point glitch that occurs on the Hideout at the second apple, where the game gets confused when it tries to award points for a smash and a jump at the exact same time, causing the game to award 1200pts for the jump. I wonder if something similar would happen in DK?
