START makes Mario go in his starting position, and JUMP makes him grab a crane hook or jump over the barrels Donkey Kong throws at him. When Mario jumps over a barrel on the lower girder, it gives him one point, and two points on the higher one. When Mario cuts the whire that is holding the girder Donkey Kong is standing on, it awards him a different amount of points depending on the time: from 20 to 5. when Mario makes Donkey Kong fall, it gives him 20 points. The max score is 999.
