  1. We have a new 'King of Kong'!

    Huge congratulations to my mate Robbie Lakeman on breaking Hank Chien's Donkey Kong [Arcade] world record score of 1,138,600
    with a new mark of 1,141,800 points.

    Full game in its entirely can be viewed here: Donkey Kong World Record 1,141,800

Thank you Vincent Lemay for all the advice you've given me and to all the other DK players and my followers for supporting me. Your encouragement has helped me push myself to get to the next level and beat the **** out of this game. You guys are the best and it'll be interesting to see what I have in store for me in the future.
    Robbie was agonizingly close recently scoring 1,137,100 which was less than 2,000 points off the world record. The people in the DK community knew it was only a matter of time with his skill set and work ethic that he would become the champion on this title.

    The funny thing is Robbie had a super slow 118,900 Level 4 start. Some of the higher class players probably would have quit the game, but he actually kept on going, and what a right decision that was! If he had a 130k start, and if he hadn't died on the last man so early I do think he could have gotten 1.16 million on arcade.

    Very happy for him. I actually met him before he was even in the top 12. He seemed like a pretty cool guy. Very nice to see him prevail.

    the lucky black cat construction site and pyramid demolition crew

    Robbie and Duncan are trouble. They are planning to burn the entire video game scene to the ground. And now nothing can stop them.

    Well deserved record. I know you worked had for this. We were all wondering when you would get it.

    Congrats!
