Got a Crazy Kong Set 1 MAME Killscreen of 567,400!
« on: March 26, 2014, 04:08:26 PM »
Drove to the library a 2nd time just to make this announcement! 8)  Can't actually post the game because I don't think you upload files on a library computer.  In a couple of months when I get the real Internet again I'll post it to MARP.  Still super happy about this.  Surprised I did it so quickly.  Did it on my 22nd attempt with less than 6 hours of gameplay.  My previous best was 310k.

Why this is surprising for me is because I have played Donkey Kong over 2500 times with over 610 hours of gameplay, and still haven't pulled it off.   So yeah, Crazy Kong was definitely nicer to me than Donkey Kong.

Also this score comes off on the heels of me getting 281,040 on Moon Patrol yesterday.  Probably my first really decent non Donkey Kong related MAME score. 

Definitely in a good mood after doing that. :)

P.S.  2 of my deaths were on the pie factory, and one was on the rivets.  I had a great run with my second man after I died on level 3-2 I went all the way to level 15-4.  My second man definitely was the difference maker.

Congratulations.   This is likely the only of the "Kong" games I'll ever KS.  I really must get back into it at some stage.  I think my KS score was 566k without looking, so I'll need to get back into it so that I can say that I can beat you  ;D 

There was talk of a Crazy Kong Off, is that still going to happen?  I'd love to play in that.  I'm sure there are plenty of DK people who are accomplished players who haven't KS'ed CK yet, and while different, it really is a fun variation of the original. 

Deaths on the PF stages are completely and 100% avoidable - I can't recall if I died on one of them during my KS, but if I did it was more to do with impatience more than anything.   Really the rivets are your only danger on this game.

OK, this may explain why I was able to have a higher score than normal just running the boards.  I had a devil may care attitude about the pie factory, and went up and jumped.  Because of that I didn't lose any valuable bonus time.  Yeah, I was probably very lucky this game since I only died once with this method.

Nice work! Glad you were able to get a new badge, because maybe I take your Junior Mame badge from you one day.  Kappa
