    I didn't specify that it had to be on any particular format. Emulation should be fine.

    How long did it take you to rack up that score bubba. Just for reference

    It was about 30-40 mins I think. I obviously didn't use any warp pipes. Played all 32 levels to get as high a score as possible. I could probably have done it faster but I died a few times on some of the middle levels.

    EDIT: No, I reckon longer actually. About 45 mins.

    That is... difficult to deal with! D: How do you plan on making this okay, Mr Shauna?!

    If one were to play on the nes version, and they maxed put their score at 999,999 which should be the Max, I would consider it a draw with bubbas score. At that point those with joint first would be entered into a second, more grueling challenge for expert players.

    That is if course if people play the new version and make it to 999,999. I hope it happens. It should be interesting to test my tie breakers.

    Since I'm playing the NES version, I'll do my best. I've never actually beat the game though, haha. At least, I've never beaten it going through every single level.

    I'm happy to accept a tie if anyone reaches 999'999 on the NES version

    I hope this doesn't come across as patronising but here are a few tips which really helped me bump up my scores.

    - Collect as many coins as you can as they're worth 200 points each
    - Collect every power-up as they're worth 1000 points
    - Always end every (non-castle) level with last timer digit on '6' It gives you six fireworks which equates to 3000 points. If you start your run and jump when the timer has a '0' at the end this should land you with a '6' every time
    - Also, it goes without saying that you need to get the top of the flag on every level for 5000 points. Combined with the fireworks, every flag at the end of a level should get you 8000 points in total.
    - Try (if you can!) to have your fire power when you reach the Bowsers in the castles. Five hits with your fireballs and he's history and gives you 5000 points.
    - Probably the biggest points earner though, every time you come across a turtle, jump on him, knock him forward and you usually take out a horde of enemies. Taking out just 7 enemies will net you about 20'000 points a time. Hell, even
    just kicking a koopa shell is worth 500 points. Just watch the bounce back off walls!

    I've updated the front sheet to include my Pikes current score. I've now been knocked off the leaderboards!

    I wonder if we'll get enough entries to knock off the NPC entries.

    That leaderboard looks pretty good! Who the hell is Buuba though?

    So on my first go I just got the second highest score, but just to clarify if I post it I can still play again right? I messed up majorly throughout and I think I can at least double my score, even if I can't quite beat out Bubba's.

    You can submit as many score's as you like. So long as they are posted in the thread. Accepting all entries n such.

    Default Now I remember why I hate this game!

    Good grief.

    Not everyone watches Doctor Who... in fact, some people outright hate it... and you.
