Get as many points as you can, anyway you can using all 5 lives on the first 3 screens.  Under the S next to Bonus on the right side of the screen should show 03 to indicate the 3rd screen. Hope all of you have a great and safe Memorial Day weekend and remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may still enjoy our Colecovisions!

So tough to not win the 3rd screen.

Sorry, I think I understood something wrong. I thought screen 3 is the trampoline level for the first time.

Please delete my score.

48,600 pts!  I think 50k is possible, but you need to be lucky enough to have several of them killed by the same fruit multiple times.  I'm regularly hitting about 42k the last few times.

41,200. Finally got some time for some CV Jr. action. I wasn't sure if 50k was possible I guess we will find out. Dam close Dugger and some other good scores as well!

Please, help him save his papa!



Popped this one in just a little bit ago during the DK Jr. week of the NES HSC. Definitely more playable than the 2600 version, haha. I like the different nature of this challenge!

Harder to control Jr and manipulate snapjaws than in the NES version, but I am enjoying this challenge a lot. I like playing video games in untraditional ways. I like how Mario looks like Crocodile Dundee...although this came out first, so...inspiration? 🤔😄

He did it! Nice! So what's everyone strategy here? I tried to spend some extra lives on stage 2, but didn't end up with as much as when I spent all my extras on stage 3. Of course, trying to hit multiple guys with one fruit is a no brainer (and easier said than done).

53,200 pts.  Finally did it!  If you get close to 7k (I sometimes had over 7k and as much as 7,300) on the first stage, you're giving yourself a good chance if you're lucky enough to get multiple baddies with single fruits later.  I recommend saving all of your lives for stage 3 and hoping luck is on your side on the 3rd stage.
