Donkey Kong is "Lady" (current name "Polin"), The game starts from where it goes up to the building under construction.
Mario appeared. Of course at this time the score is zero.
Go ahead with the stage ... ...
First of all, it cleared one surface. A long way to achieve record starts from here.

From the 2nd round, the side where "Jack" flew also appeared.
To the situation that the height of the building exceeds 150 meters because it cleared one after another.
And finally a moment exceeding 1 million points. 300 points are added by breaking the barrel with a hammer when the score at the upper left of the screen is "999700" ... ...
The number has returned to "000000".
And right after marking 1218,000 points exceeding the highest score up to this time "1.26800 points" ......
Suddenly Mario died. There is no trace of obstruction hit, but this is actually due to a software bug. In Donkey Kong, it is known that there is a bug called "kill screen" where Mario dies because of "mistake" in 8 seconds after the stage of the 22nd round begins.
And the game over. However, Mr. Copland, who was aiming for high score, successfully achieved record.
Lastly, register the name "WES" and complete the recording. The most surprising thing is that Mr. Copland never made a mistake and beat out this score. Is there a day when this record will be broken in the future?
