Competition on Donkey Kong Junior is dead
« on: August 11, 2018, 01:59:19 pm »
I'm looking at the top 10 of Donkey Kong Junior and I realize that we haven't had a top 10 score in two and a half years.  We haven't had a top 20 score in 2 years and 4 months.  To be honest, it's really sad to see.  This used to be a prime game that was played by many more people about 5 years ago.  It's gotten so bad, that I think Donkey Kong 3 actually has a more active scene than DKJr.
So at the moment, the competition on this game is completely dead, and it's really sad to see.

P.S. Yes, I know the game is a drag when it comes to point pressing, but that didn't stop other games like Dig Dug which also has better competition at the moment.

Yeah I've noticed Junior scores have tailed off, I personally like the game except for the Hideout pressing bore fest!  FailFish

I'm not done with this game yet by a long way, once I have some time, I'll be back grinding for a top 10 score.

I can concur with Mario Bros. Such a great challenging game, but apparently too challenging.  >:(
