Breaking Barrels AND Records… Again

Well now. Just in case you were thinking about heading out to your favourite arcade (if you can find one) and playing enough original Donkey Kong in training to defeat the master of the game, think again. Turns out he doesn’t even need an opponent—Dr. Hank Chien is his own worst enemy.

Only a few months after extending his record-holding position to 1,110,100, this week there has been confirmation that he’s beat his own record, which now comes in at 1,127,700.

There’s another DK event coming up in November, the Kong Off II… so naturally, we’re wondering if this was in preparation for yet another world-record setting score in just a few months time.
