Looks like the RNG wanted it to be a Nintendo round.  I imagine these games won't be new to anybody.  

 

I haven't played DK in a while, hope I'm not too rusty.  

 

Don't forget - following this round, we will have the 2nd scheduled redemption round with the same basic rules as the first.  Following that will be the final round of the competition, which will consist of (4) games.

Donkey Kong:  Best Arcade game ever made.

 

Let the party begin...

I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but this is probably my first time playing honest-to-God arcade Donkey Kong. I've played the NES version via the Wii store, the 2600 version and Crazy Kong which is almost a straight rip of the original. What I've learned so far? It's brutal. No wonder it's so highly contested for high scores -- doing well is a remarkable achievement.

This is going to end up as a Cyn Vs. M.A.M.E. Donkey Kong off.  I look forward to it.  

 

Razzie, i'm looking in your direction.  Give 'em a run.  

 

Vs. Excitebike - 65,645

Donkey Kong - 15,500

Ugh... what you guys call "improvable scores" runs laps around my (probably all time) best effort  😬

 

 

I think I can figure this thing out over the next few days and get a score bump.

 

 

Donkey Kong -- 74,800

Excitebike -- 117,440

 

 

The initials were blinking and my timing was wrong with the screenshot capture.  If you stare at that blank space in the #1 spot long enough, it may say "M.S" again.  No promises though.

I almost bailed on this run because at about 155k I died multiple times in quick succession and was down to my last life.  Ended up almost doubling that score with my final guy... that never happens.
