Donkey Kong Kill-Screener Timeline

(1/55) > >>

I started a thread for this a few months before Twin Galaxies died, and a couple months back I was able to retrieve it from the Google cache (what I was NOT able to retrieve, unfortunately, were links to "proof" of each kill screen, but since most of those are TG forum links that are now dead due to the loss of the forum, they wouldn't be useful anyway.)

Much of this comes from my own research, the rest was obtained from Hank's "The Official Unofficial List of DK Killscreeners" (which ranks all known kill-screeners by their current personal best).

There's quite a bit of "honor system" going on here, as well as gradations in legitimacy/verifiability. I will not dare to name names, but there are at least two self-reported kill screens on this list that I doubt very seriously, and also a couple (such as Chris Ayra) for whom I am trusting the word of third parties. There is one player (Alex McGlothlien) on Hank's list that was said to have achieved his KS on non-standard settings, so I'll refrain from including him for now. I will be happy to put him on if and when he steps forward to be counted.

I will add more columns (such as whether or not the game was official) at a later time. I am not bothering with scores because assembling that information would be quite a project and the point here is to show the order in which players first reached the kill screen, not how many points they had when they got there.

Please help me with any missing information or errors! Thanks.

Great list! Wasn't Robbie Lakeman's done on MAME?

We have our first correction!

Yes it was on MAME :)

I think Estel got a killscreen score of 999,800 on arcade.  I remember reading about it on TGI how all he needed was another smash or a couple of jumps to get the million.
