    Wes Copeland has broken the all-time record high score for Donkey Kong.

    It’s how he took the title, though that’s so staggering. Copeland did not lose a single Mario in the game. He took his first life all the way from the first level all the way to the end, cashing in the extra lives to obliterate all comers.

    “This will be my last record score,” Copeland wrote on Facebook. “I don’t believe I can put up a game any higher than this.” Copeland had set 1.2 million as his ultimate goal in Donkey Kong, and said he’d retire from competition if he could reach that.

    There is a documentary about two guys competing to get the high score called The King of Kong. It might be a reference to that.

    Those guys scores were in the hundreds of thousands I believe. 1.2 million is insane!

    That documentary is incredible. Billy Mitchell is basically the perfect villain.

    Crazy how the record got so much more competitive after that great documentary. This record is pretty insane and I hope he can stay at the top for a long time.
