just checking, I wondered, how did you get that score? presuming you didn't use the shell-hop trick as that isn't allowed, I guess your score continues climbing after finishing the game? I had thought the score reset at that point.

I know of 3 ways to get this. 1st - At the beginning of level 5-1, if you have the correct timing, you can throw the shell get 1-Up. 2nd - The famous shell trick. 3rd - On level 8-2 there is a 1-Up hidden in a block that is always there even if you die. Play level 8-2 and get that 1-Up that it's right after the "stairs blocks" and collect some coins, and intentionally die, after long time you'll have the max score.

I don't think this belongs in the same place as the other scores posted here. either that, or they don't belong here with this one. there should be a separate contest if point harvesting like that is allowed. it is not a fair comparison to be compared with the other scores where players are not using endless point-harvesting tricks and critter-farming techniques like this. I think for contests allowing stuff like that it should be a speed-run, or a marathon if the score rolls over.

to be fair, I don't want to bad-mouth your submission. I'm glad to see it & look forward to seeing more stuff like that so I'm sorry if that sounded bad. I just think there needs to be another category to keep stuff like this separate from the high-score rankings. This isn't working how we are all ranked under the same heading right now. It doesn't make sense for other players to lose their positions when they have not resorted to cheap methods to achieve their scores.

Well, it shouldn't be. This is an abuse of the spirit of this kind of site
