The competition for the top score for the arcade version of Donkey Kong hasn’t settled down recently and it’s unlikely that it will anytime soon. A good reason for that is the existence of The King Of Kong documentary, which influenced a plastic surgeon by the name of Hank Chien to go after the record as well. After setting the record once only to be beaten by Steve Wiebe afterwards, Dr. Chien set the record again on Feb. 27th, holding the record with 1,090,400 points.
To document the on-going saga to obtain the DK world record, a short documentary has been produced by Alexis Neophytides showcasing Dr. Chien’s part in all of this – a sort of addendum to The King of Kong. You can see the trailer below, as well as visit the official website for more information.
