Looks pretty good so far, Kong seems to have put on weight though!  :4:

LOL  At least he looks like Kong and not the Gingerbread Man!

If you haven't been checking on this, you need to head to the thread over in AA and check out the latest binary.  The latest version has all four screens!  Yes, a 2600 version of DK with all the screens!  Go here to check it out:  DK Arcade 2600. New 4-Level Demo!  Here is a video of this latest version in action...

Just a quick update on this.  The final demo of this game has been released.  Check the development thread (link on first post) for the binaries.

This looks great, and I am glad the programmer decided against the vertically scrolling screen and flat girders. How soon will this be available for sale?

Well, this is one of two different versions.  The other one does have flat girders and vertical scrolling for all the levels.  No word on when/if this will be sold.
