Guess I'll start things off. 15,000 after about a half hour of playing. Made it to the second rivet stage, but was pretty lazy about collecting the bonus items.

Ran in to post this like a school boy. After another 20 minutes of play on top of yesterday I managed to not only clear the second screen but to top Thags high score. I scored an even 15,000. If I didnt run out of time I would have cleared another Rivet screen and that would have shot my score even higher. Finally getting the hang of clearing the rivets. I just thank God that I have a locking door to my office. Too bad Donkey Kong doesnt have a mute button like Galaxian. Laughing

Holy crap! I just played the best game of this in my life just now. I made it to the SEVENTH rivet stage with a whopping 39,800! I've never passed the second one before. I used the strategies I posted in the main forum. The key seems to be trapping one of the upper fireballs behind a rivet on the third floor, which makes it easy to get the top ones, and also lures the bottom fireball towards the trapped one. I was starting to get sweaty palms there! Gotta love that feeling.

Yessss!

Hope I didn't burst your bubble, Roback. You've got your work cut out for ya! Wink

Yeah, I was pretty surprised. I love classic gaming when you get on a roll like that. I wish I had a way to get the pic off my phone to post it. Getting that score is actually not as hard as it sounds. I discovered another trick. See, your little guy has a habit of continuing to move after you've tapped the stick, which causes you to die when moving near a fireball (or an edge). The trick is to move left or right, and then immediately press down or up, which halts your character. It gives you much tighter control, and makes the rivet stage a lot easier, as well as keeping you from falling off of the edge.

Keep trying, I'm sure you will catch up quick. It's really a fun little game.

Ah ah Billy yes 2012 will be tough on our thumbs... Mr. Green Its always nice to push the limit. Dude I own that Zaxxon mothership but barely played with it. Got it on ebay last month and its just like a brand new one. Super mint! However I was shocked the first time I played it. I thought at first it was broke!!! Its such a damn hard game!! Most of the time I die I have no idea why! Shocked However its winter here and you know I am relentless Mr. Green ..Soon I will put some efforts on that unit but right now my brain needs some rest. Mr. Green

i know what you mean serge! seems like you die for no
reason on zaxxon alot. it is VERY frustrating. in the mean time,
i'm trying to figure out how you do it on coleco's ms. pac man.
i can't learn a maze pattern because i forgot, the boards
CHANGE from board to board on this! i can't tell what's best,
using the power pellets to eat lots of ghosts, or to help maximize
getting the regular pellets. ARGGG!!!
Shocked Shocked Shocked

Billy,

With mine I focussed on the ghosts and fruits to build the score. By eating 3 or more ghosts that also give you more time to run after the pellets. I was using some kind of pattern but not very specific. At the beginning I had to adapt with the new maze but after a while I had plenty of time to complete the maze with the 4 power pellets. In trouble I went to the escape door. Just watch if a ghost enter the door on the other side! Shocked I had 2 lives left when I decided to stop before the score reset. I wanted that pictures! Mr. Green Honestly I felf like I could play all day until my brain toast. Embarassed Cool

well, coleco's donkey kong is insane.
it's almost impossible to time the jumping just right on the fireball board.
you have to hit jump and left or right at the exact same time and dying
accidentally is the biggest downfall on this game.
after a month, this is my highest score. (there is only 1 skill level.)
62,600 (you cannot gain extra guys in play)
