Since Twin Galaxies only accepts records set on original games that have not been altered in any way, it banned Mitchell from competition, and the decision subsequently invalidated his standing with the Guinness World Records, which relies on Galaxies to verify video game world records. In a new statement, the former King of Kong denied the charges against him, promising that his Donkey Kong scores are genuine and authentic. "The use of MAME or any other emulation software for submission to these leader boards is strictly forbidden". After concluding its investigation, also utilizing additional information gleaned from a third-party source which Mitchell had cooperated with, Twin Galaxies responded by stripping Mitchell of his scores and titles.

Mitchell has been a big name in gaming for decades, holding several world record scores.

"We also recognize records for First flawless score on Pac-Man and Highest score on Pac-Man".

We wait with bated breath. The gamer questioned whether Mitchell earned the marks on an arcade machine. Now, Mitchell has chose to respond to the investigation and seems content on proving that he did not cheat. In 1999, he was recorded as the first gamer to notch a ideal score on Pac-Man.
