Beat my high score last night - 266,600.

I haven't been playing it much as I've been console gaming a lot over the last few months.

Having a break is sometimes good though. 

Don't want to jinx myself, but I think I'm going to break 300 soon, as I'm getting a bit more confident with the spring board/bird egg screen, which was the hardest part of this game for me.

Hello all!
I've been playing my DK Junior cab that I got from the recent K9 delivery for 6 weeks and set my highest score yet this weekend.
Hopefully the photo attached ok.
The score is 194,800
Cheers.
Dave

I'm really pleased with it. I'm hoping to keep getting better and nudging the score higher and higher.
After speaking to Alex earlier were hoping a bunch of us will be actively playing Jr and score chasing:)

Finally  broke the 200k mark and could have got so much more.
For some reason i panicked  on the hideout and lost two lives Cry
But really enjoying getting into this now and playing every day, 300k here we come.

Great score Alex, I think the key is to play every day (or at least play more than one or two games), which I struggle to do, but gonna have one last bash today

Awesome Alex. Onwards to 300K!

I've had a bit of a rough ride with Junior this last couple of weeks. Hated it with a passion at first, but it slowly sinks in, and now I like it. The level design and the way it plays is quite original. Can't do the spring level properly yet, so my scores are suffering, but I'm having fun trying.

Spring level isn't bad, mash the button for the jump.
Then its a counting thing to avoid the hatebeaks.

Thanks Dave
I am glad your liking it,as it’s one of my favourite games.
It does take a while to master the patterns but it’s all your fault when it goes wrong.
If you miss the spring just go the long way.
As Vic said there is a bug there.
I absolutely love the game as it’s not stressful and takes a lot of skill and multi tasking, especially on the chain lvl
The pod cast was really in-depth which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The guys did it justice.
