Since posting my first score on Twin Galaxies in 2009 my activeness playing Donkey Kong over the coming years slowly dwindled. Between 2012 and mid 2014 I didn't play it once. Since meeting the DKF community my enjoyment of this game has increased dramatically.

You'll all probably aware of the documentary "The King of Kong". I, like I would assume many others, drew my interest into classic arcade gaming from it. Watching people compete for high scores in games that were simplistic yet ridiculously challenging appealed to me in ways no other genre did.

Since I started streaming the game and having players like Wes and Ethan, and all the rest who's names I am still learning, join my stream and give me tips my skills have improved dramatically. I've gone from 70k averages to getting upwards of 160k scores.

I'm currently going for a score of 200k as a new PB and my first submissions to the DKF scoreboard. I am excited to chat with the rest of the community and get to know everyone. I hope with the communities guidance I'll eventually be able to reach my first KS.


P.S. The game's on Allen! Race to first kill screen begins now.

Welcome and good luck with the 200k! I had the same goal for my first HS sub.

It always helps to have a few cheerleaders in the stream chat.

o yer love it. I hope you are preparing for the next DKO. Remember even if you don't win there's still a good chance of getting prize money. Be sure to check out The Manual if you haven't already.

Welcome, mate! This is the place to be if you want to get better at DK. It might take you a while to learn all the jargon we use, but it makes it more fun in the end.

Here's a quick reference for DK terms:

Here's a quick reference for some of the "Staalisms" we've acquired:
http://donkeykongforum.com/index.php?topic=83.msg827#msg827

And here is a manual on DK for beginners:

Good luck! I'll swing by your stream when I can!  :)

Entry #2.

Thanks all for the warm welcome to the community.

6 days since joining DKF and I've managed to break the 200k mark. Within only a week I've managed to beat my PB by 110k.

I'll keep in short this time around because I don't really have much to say. 300k, I'm coming for you.

Yeah that's a rapid improvement.  Congrats on that.  Should be interesting to see how far you take this.

Entry #3.

Within 24 hours of breaking 200k I had managed to beat it again around 6 or so times. I even managed to beat my original 200k PB with a score of 236,300. 300k is within my sites, and I'm hoping that within a weeks time I'll have it.

I have plans to record the majority of my sessions so I can watch back over and note the places I die most, so I know where I need to improve the most.

I will show this game no mercy.

Peace

Blog Entry #4.

So it's been a while since I've made one of these blog entries, or played DK for that matter.

In the DKO6 I've managed to put up a 220,700 score, so I'm still where I use to be. I went for Robbie's bounty for the Vess 2200 games submission. Hoping to stay on top for that.

I'll be putting in plenty more submissions tomorrow for the DKO, and am planning on playing much more DK to break my PB and work towards a KS.

Thanks everyone for the continued support.

Blog Entry #5.

I've been putting in some hours recently with my playing, and today I have again broken my personal best.

I scored 257,600 and ended on 8-5 to a wild barrel..

This has inspired me to again push hard with donkey kong and I will always be going for bigger scores.

Keep up the game!
