[This also would include the use of a single enemy to get increasingly larger amounts of points by repeatedly jumping on it] Waiting to grab the Golden Axe, at the end of every Bowser level until the LAST POSSIBLE SECOND, causing the timer to revert to 999 is BANNED and use of it will result in IMMEDIATE disqualification! Use of the Wall-Jump tactic is NOT allowed! You MUST access the Underwater area of 8-4 by using the pipe across the lava pit. Doubling back and using the pipe before the pit to do so will equal Disqualification. Use of ANY Pipe to go somewhere different then the programmers intended is BANNED! Warping IS permitted!

I know my kid can do better on Super Mario. I think he just needs to get used to the fast timer.


Also, I had my fill of Mario Bros. from our HSC not too long ago. That game ticked me off that week. ;)

Donkey Kong 3 2,294,600


By the way it would be really, really cool to break the marathon record while while the tournament is running. :D :cool:


Turn off the flash on your camera, please


It's amazing to me that this game comes easily to you...your scoring 2 million consistently which is just totally out of my league...


Congrats and I hope you do break the record during this tourney. I think it's safe to say you'll get at least 11 points out of it. :)

OK, I realize it is impossible to prove a score of over 2 million with just a photograph, so I will just post the score. I just played it again, and got a score of 2,514,900. I am happy I can record to this amount now. I went to Best Buy 2 days ago, and overpaid for a battery for the camera. But it was all worth it in my opinion. You know the interesting thing about this is that I had a horrible start, and I still came ever so close to the actual record which is 2,583,000.

OK, new record score of 2,781,100. Glad to break the record during the tournament week!


Congrats guy! I've been cross-posting your progress over at ClassicArcadeGaming.com and the folks over there are totally impressed.


How about a screen shot?

Indy Heat




Yeah, the game does have turbo. It took me awhile to figure out the controls for this game. I kept remapping the buttons.

I mapped turbo to one of the mouse buttons.





Indy 500 this weekend, Go Helio!


I'll try that...hitting the default Left ALT key did nothing
