March 8, 2010 - PRLog -- While official gaming scorekeepers Twin Galaxies have been busy watching the World Record score on New Super Mario Bros. Wii changing almost daily, a New York man has taken Mario's first adventure to never before seen heights.

35-year-old plastic surgeon Hank Chien of New York, New York has set a new World Record on the original Donkey Kong arcade game, racking up 1,061,700 points in 2 hours, 35 minutes according to Twin Galaxies officials, ending the game on the famed "kill screen" glitch that does not allow play to continue.

Chien's new scoring mark beats the 1,050,200 point record score set by Florida's Billy Mitchell at a live event in Florida in July 2007.

Twin Galaxies officials David Nelson of New Hampshire and Eric Akeson of Washington state verified Hank Chien's record game, done on an original Donkey Kong machine in New York.

Twin Galaxies International has served as the official scorekeeping organization for video gaming since it's formation in 1981.  Recognized by Guinness World Records and international news sources, www.TwinGalaxies.com contains record times and scores from it's inception up to the most modern hits for the Nintendo Wii, XBox 360, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation 3.  The international organization is being used to verify the winner of 2KSports $1,000,000 prize for the new Major League Baseball 2k10 video game.
