This is a Japanese cabaret (mini) of "Donkey Kong JR." The levels are in a different order than the American release. Nintendo later changed the order of the levels for the American market and renamed the game "Donkey Kong Junior". Although this particular cabinet has the DK Junior marquee in place.

I purchased a base for my DKJr from Spacebaby on KLOV.

It worked great for me.  I painted it black and it was good to go.  I'm not sure if linking to KLOV post is taboo here but I just wanted you guys to know in case you needed this as well.

Wow, not much traffic on this group in a while!  Anyone out there working on DK junior other than me?

I have been working on chain patterns and on vines point pressing in particular.  The hideout level and the springboard are basically maxed out (pending any further techniques to come along).

On Feb 2 I scored a 1,093,300.  BOOYAH!  The game replay can be seen here...


I will also post in the high score thread.  I will be taking a break from DK Junior and try to go for the million on DK.

You'll get there very soon!

Comment by lutus on January 25, 2012 at 11:07am

No, I am gonna wait till I break a million.... ;)

@lutus... Did I forget to put you on the scoreboard?

Comment by lutus on January 25, 2012 at 9:22am

New high score early this morning.  867K on level B-4.  Well above pace to top a million.  Subscribe to my channel at for my next attempt sometime between Thursday and Saturday.  The replay of this game is also available on that channel.

Comment by lutus on January 23, 2012 at 9:02am

Well, just got a kill screen with a score in the 714K range.  On to the million!!!!

Comment by lutus on January 22, 2012 at 5:26pm

Thanks Bill.  Let's just make sure that Mark's score never gets put on the scoreboard..... ;)

If anyone is looking for easy ways to stay alive and progress through the levels watch my last couple streams.  I am just trying to get straight to the killscreen.

Scoreboard updated. If I missed anyone let me know!
