Player reaches 201 in Mario Party 4's "Domination" mini-game without tool assistance

Maybe he's a robot...

Videos of tool-assisted speedruns pop up all the time, showcasing skills that most, if not all humans could ever present. Those tools have been used in all sorts of games, including Mario Party 4. Three years ago, a tool-assisted speedrun bot managed to grab a score of 160 in the Mario Party 4 mini-game, "Domination." That's the limit Mario Party 4 allows you if you're playing the standard game. What happens if you're playing a version of the game that let's you go past that 160 and crank out a score only limited by the in-game timer? As of today, the record sits at 201, which was secured by speedrunner Ludwig. You can see his triumphant achievement in the clip above.
