    Submission MessageHi, please excuse all the other DK jr submissions, this will be the last one; unless someone tops this... BTW, in the 3rd stage (Mario's hideout), the top left vine transfer is the one that kills us off more than any other part of the game. The trick is to get to this level with all 4 juniors intact, then you have a 50/50 chance of getting the right foot position. Recorded March 07, 2018 on game 1, diff B.
    Final score: 1,723,700
    Set up: :18
    Run begins: 1:00

    Wow! Nice score. I broke 1 million on this in 2016 on Atariage tourney but quit after rollover (On their tournament games, a rolled score is considered best They call it "rollage").
    On Mario's hideout, I use the sound effects to guage how to keep my "foot" in correct position. First, I get my head level with platform to let snapjaw pass above, then I listen for the climbing sound effect. Let's say the effect in written terms is "click". I listen for three "clicks" and my foot will be in correct position. I will give this game some more tries, but am currently working on another game. But, 1.7 million is really, really good and will be challenging to surpass! Congrats.

    Well, that's just crazy!

    I like the timing to the second set of chains on the rivet stage, excellent, and keeping up with the timing on the sparks looks impossible.

    Way to go, I hadn't checked this game out on VCS until your stuff recently, it's not bad-I am, but it's not, lol, is pretty good for a VCS game with progressive levels.

    Accepted, Top-Tier, Man, once again!!!

    Hi, VooDoo,
    I just had a look at your submission that beat snowflake by 500pts. By not seeing the video earlier, I thought you may have ended the game on purpose when you found you had taken top spot, but you really did die in battle! Something tells me that if you got passed that chains stage, it would be you that would be posting a 1.7M score.
    What are you working on next?
    ...God gave video games to you...
