Yeha, you don't actually "beat" Donkey Kong. You just play until it freezes. At least, according to the movie "King of Kong."
I saw that, too.

But, how can they keep getting higher and higher scores... ? o_O

Well, I have a Tetris game that has a 2 minute mode. I keep getting better and better scores in the same amount of time. You just learn how to play it better/get luckier.
