Wanted is probably my favorite mini-game in SM64DS. It's so fun and addicting if you ask me. :)
What is everyone's highest score for the Wanted mini-game? So far, my highest is 1,250 and it's still going. I'm challenging myself to get to 9,999 after the very popular YouTube LP'er Chuggaaconroy offered the challenge to his viewers. He's doing a Let's Play of SM64DS right now and I thought it would be neat to try getting to 9,999 legitimately (no hacks, cheats, or action replay; he offered the challenge in episode 3). Who knows, maybe if I do it, he'll give me a prize like he usually does whenever he offers a challenge like this (he did it with Super Mario Galaxy's purple coin mission in Ghostly Galaxy; two people won a prize for that, even though there are actually 149 purple coins and not 150).
I have proof of me doing well in this game, even though the video quality is bad.

Hopefully my next video will be me getting to 9,999. I know it's possible if I keep this up.
So what is everyone's high score and thoughts on this mini-game? It's a really nice time killer, in a good way.
Update: I just broke the 2,000 level mark. At level 2,007 right now and still going.
Another update: got up to level 3,000 today. I'll probably continue this tomorrow at level 3,001.
I am not happy right now. Mario just ended my run at level 3,095. That really made me mad. I proceeded to torture Mario in the main game for the next half hour. XD
Never doing this again. That run was nice, but I no longer have the patience to go for 9,999 after this failure. Plus, I found this video:
So 9,999 is possible. I still like the Wanted game despite what just happened.
