This is my favourite game to shoot for high scores on by far!

My top is 490k which I scored at a barcade last year and I'm still struggling away these days in the 200k - 300k range Tongue Some day I will break my plateau.

Can you? I think you just did! LOL

Not a bad score. Looks like you're at a point where suddenly your score is going to leap up by quite a bit. Which screen are most of your deaths coming on now?

Watched a bit of “King of Kong, a fistful of quarters” the other night. If you’ve never seen it well worth a watch. CharlieFar’s scores are up there!

Seems to be the ruddy pie factory or the rivets screen. I still haven’t mastered the elevators screen and the “turn back” on the wrong spring either.

All pretty standard then LOL.

The springs are always tricky but once you've got it, then it should be the one screen which you never die on as there are no random deaths once you can see the springs. I assume you run on a long bounce and then cross your fingers? What I do is wait for the long bounce then run but keep an eye on the next spring entering. You will get a feel from where it enters if it's going to be a long bounce or a short bounce and can then decide to turn around or carry on up. If you're using emulators then you can set a save state and just keep practicing until you have it mastered.

The pies and the rivets can be nasty and you can easily end up in a non avoidable death, especially on the rivets. Patience is key on these levels and especially so on the pie factory. If you can't get the easy free pass up the right side, then grab the bottom hammer. Don't be afraid to retreat back down to the very bottom if the fireballs aren't playing nice. Try to keep as far away from them as possible. If you can't get quickly up the right side, then it's much easier to go up the left if you've been hanging around as the fireballs move more speedily form left to right, so tend to gravitate towards the right side once they have reached the top.
