What’s Your Highest Whack-A-Monty Score?

When I’m bored, I usually get my Nintendo DS Lite and play a Super Mario Bros Mini Game called Whack-A-Monty. That game is so simple that even a 2 year old can play it. You’ll just whack a monty, basically tapping a bird that shows up from the holes and avoiding Luigi’s face at the same time.

The challenge only comes when you are trying to beat your own high score. I actually got hooked on this game when my girlfriend showed me that her high score on this game is 75 while mine is only on the 50s. I finally beat her high score after almost 2 hours playing it, (I got 76) but then, after 5 minute or so, she just have a new high score of 77.

My highest score now is 82. That’s quite tough to beat now, at least for me. I played last night and my high score is just 77. From time to time, I’ll still try to set a new high score.

Googling for a whack a monty high score, I found out that someone has a high score of 117! Someone, somewhere is more addicted to this game than me. But someday, I’ll beat that 117. I just need more practice. Hehe.

How about you? Have you played this game? What’s your highest score?
