All your scores are registrated as sat on MAME, untill told otherwise.. :)


I thought it was time we had a Donkey Kong Junior high score table here on UKVAC. There are a few of us who get stuck into this awesome game and I started playing this again today after deciding to take a break from playing Donkey Kong.

 

After managing a high score of 837,500 almost a year ago I fired the cab up earlier today.

 

It's surprising how difficult it is switching from Donkey Kong to Junior after being so familiar with it and being on the verge of a kill screen and it has to be said, this is such a different game to DK!

 

Anyhow, the best for today was 325,100

 

Alex, you know you want to! Tongue

 

 


 

 


 

 

 

 

Cheers, Al

Hey Eric, it's been a long time. I think we all over played it last time and took a well needed break!

It's taken longer than expected to figure out the chains again but I've almost got it now, looking for at least 500k next time. Love this game.....love it!Heart

I think the main hurdle for me apart from much more practise is the chain lvl
second time round it becomes very busy and you really have to be in the matrix to foresee what is going on.
I always seem to try and wipe-out as many snappers as I can on the first chain,if it doesn't happen I struggle to organise a plan b.
If you know what I mean

Nice score Al....Is that 193k your high score saved?
 
The chain level is pretty tough Al and the hardest level without any question. Level 4 onwards the snappers are on speed. The other problem is there's only just enough space to allow junior between the birds, if you are sat a pixel two high/low, you'll get hit. Some people use patterns, for example some guys push the keys up from left to right, some go from right to left (I used to) but to be realistic, which ever way you go, be ready to switch chains quickly and like you said if you can hit snappers for points is great, but they respawn from level 4 anyhow.

That's my top score mate
I do always have a pattern but as with this game it doesn't always go to plan
That pixel perfect positioning and re spawning sounds eye boggling
So want to crack the 200,000 mark

Not good Eric, we all get that and it's mighty frustrating Thumbs Down

If you get stressed out Alex drop down to the bottom 3/4's of the chains and hang out there and wait. After 10 birds are released there's a massive gap, then go for it!
 
Nothing wrong with 190k anyhow....but you're capable of more, you played well at my place.
