Donkey Kong Million Point Timeline

(1/19) > >>

As a companion to the killscreener timeline, here is a chronology of every known million-point player's first "rollover."

Are there any missing? Perhaps. Based on his YouTube videos, Ben Mazowita seems extremely capable, but he isn't part of the community. There is also a rumor of a player from Japan who achieved a million-point game (on the US version) at some point prior to 2015, but this player is unknown to us as well.

All of Billy Mitchell's three TG-verified million point performances have been struck from DKF's high score list, which you can read about here. Whether or not Mitchell ever actually achieved a legitimate million point score is now considered unknown. I have, however, left him on the list as an "asterisked entry", since his scores were verified at one time, and are (obviously) highly significant to the history of this game.

I am confident, at any rate, that Steve Wiebe's 1,006 was the first-ever million point game of DK, and that there are no more than 3 people missing from this list.

Good to have that ;-).

I lol'ed at Jeff's score of 1.1m. Jeff said: Screw 1m, I'm gonna get 1.1m! YOLO!

Oops, I have your date wrong Phil. I know it was February, do you know the date?

You over-wrote that .inp with your 1,050 game.
