I have had this game since 1999 when it came out and loved it, but I lost it since I was such a irresponsible kid back then..but I just found the game a few days ago!
Now I remember why this game is so awesome! you not only get the original game but you get the challenge mode which is just f'ing AWESOMELY fun and adds tons of gameplay time, plus youVboo, the toy box, a picture gallery and even the lost levels! (most of them anyway) the game does have a few flaws like the camera issue, but really that is no big deal.
To the point of this topic..I was wondering something about the scores. Is there an invisible rule that says you cannot kick a Koopa shell more than once? Cause I noticed on the N64 hs they abuse the shells(or so I assume) and get really high scores, for example 100k+ on W1-1 whereas the record on this site is 46k, which is probably done playing regularly.
Is this the case? if so that would be really awesome, cause honestly who wants to kick a shell over and over again for a high score.. that is just boring and a waste of time, playing through regularly getting combo's and doing it all quick is the fun way.
