Donkey Kong Advanced
« on: February 23, 2017, 00:44:41 AM »
Here is something quite interesting from ophelius.  A remake of the classic arcade game. This is not a rom hack. It's meant to be more difficult than the original giving players new levels and new challenges. Ophelius has tried to study the original as close as I can to maintain the same feel, but added new elements and challenges. Even though it can be played on your PC, it's meant to be played in people's mame arcade cabinets.

Changes from the original
-Obviously the levels look different, some completely new, and others have the same level structure with some  differences
-New switch, laser, and key system to save Pauline.
-Mario can jump off high platforms and land without killing himself(c'mon, he's mario)
-New heart bonus items are worth 2000 points but are tricky to get.
-No intro scene, I might add one though.
-Barrels rebound off the floor higher than before
-Hitting barrels with the hammer doesn't pause the game during the explosion
-Level 4 is icy, with a shoe item you can get that makes it not slipery
-and some other stuff


Going to the final frontier, gaming...

All I can say is, Wow.
What an excellent game. My interest isn't as high as it would've been in 1981 but this is absolutely wonderful.
Can't wait to hack in infinite lives and ditch the collision detection :D

LOL, I think that's the only way I'd survive this version of Donkey Kong.  It looks like it is quite the difficult game!

Me too. A lot of back and forth to throw switches & grab keys. My skills today would make it much harder than way back when I was anxious to play :p
