    It's funny how I'm reading this, 10 years later and it makes since now or to a certain point. I believe it was discovered that ZK has some kind of kill screen in it or where the longer you play the animals get faster and faster, resulting in something like a kill screen. It's just not at any certain level. So, it may get really fast later in the rounds but you may still get past a couple more screens. Maybe this was programmed in the game to help you possibly get that 30M jump? Faster animals equals they run under you quicker. And maybe the game is like, ok you had your fun and enough is enough. Your game ends here!

    Ross Benziger recently put up a 47,672,430 on Zookeeper for MAME, which is the highest verifiable score on any platform, outside of John Lexmark's scores, which he will not disclose his gameplay for.

    Maybe someday we will see 100m on this title.

    If not for John Lexmark's 80 something million score (unverified but on his machine) I would be looking at Ross Benziger's score in totally amazement. Heck, I remember looking at Jason and Shawn Cram's 35 & 38 million pt. scores and was totally shocked at the time. I believe John's 80 something million score doesn't even have a 30M jump in it and that score actually may be 88M but I can't quite recall for sure. 100M is going to happen for sure one day soon.

    One thing in ZK that used to drive me crazy was when a animal ran past me when I had the net. It's a glitch in the game I guess and it would certainly throw your grouping pattern off.

    I look at Ross' score of 47M in total amazement. Same goes with the games I've seen done by Dean.

    However, almost no one can look at John's game at all... whether with amazement or not.

    No, you sure can't look at John's games because he asked for them not to be seen by the public eye. That was the gamer's decision when he submitted the score. Part of that was to not show exactly how to get the 30M pt. jump or how to set it up but on his last submissions he didn't get any 30m jumps. I'm not even sure he got a 15M jump in those games. He just played a long game and I believe he even talked about this on the CAG forums at the time.

    Zookeeper pretty much has a kill screen to it. The game will indeed continue on but we are all thinking the animals begin to get faster and faster in the later rounds. It's kind of like a built in kill screen either by a glitch in the game or it's how it was programmed to keep anyone from marathoning the game.

    I know. I was being heavily sarcastic. The point is, almost no one is amazed at John's score, because almost no one has ever seen it.

    Your kind of right and half way wrong at the same time. People are indeed amazed when they look up the score but yea, they can't see the video to be totally amazed. Does that make since? There is the 30m video you can look at though.

    I much more prone to being amazed by scores that someone achieves and then shares, as, by doing so, they are basically saying "Have at my record... I don't care if you try to beat it... even use the same methods I do... it'll still be hard, as it's actually that good."

    Too bad for John, though, as, by keeping his game secret, he loses the right to be considered a point-pressing pioneer to the degree that he has added to the gameplay strategies, as now others will be forced to figure out the same things on their own instead of from him (and they already have -however, I see him trying to lay claim to some of the methods they've used over on CAGDC). So, if his score is ever beaten, he won't have the honor of receiving much/any of the strategical credit.
