Donkey Kong II at the arcade!

#1
Well, its fan made, but its there to play at Funspot Arcade in New Hampshire. Its amazing that the guy was able to fit this on the original rom. Its been around for over a year and I had no idea. The only reason I found it was I happen to be looking for news on a Virtual Console Arcade release of Donkey Kong and DKjr. In a dream world Nintendo would publish DKII on there are well.




There is a video with an interview with Jeff Kulczycki the creator but it has links to where you can purchase the rom upgrade. You would have to have a board with a DK rom already, but Im not taking any chances with the TOS on this. If a mod lets me know its ok, Ill post the link.

The sad thing is that probably some Nintendo fanatic will do that.

I wish, Nintendo seems to care very little for the game that put them on the video game map.
I agree. If only Nintendo has made a sequel to this game in 1993, made it the premier game for the Super Gameboy, and turbo charged the game with all new play mechanics and 100 levels. Too bad they never did that. Maybe I'll just wish for a sequel on the GBA instead.

Heh, some of those levels remind me of the those Crazy Kong (and other named) bootleg boards that used to be around during DK's heyday. I played a pretty neat one regularly at a Shakey's Pizza Parlor all the time as a kid.

Donkey Kong 94 was awesome. I wish Mario Vs Donkey Kong on GBA was more like it. I didnt like the focus on the puzzle elements

What have they done for DK lately... I would have taken this over the NES version of DK they released on VC which I had to fight myself to not purchase.

How could they anounced a new arcade service and make no mention of their own arcade classics? Its just plain weird.

DK Jungle Climber on DS.

It's freaking awesome. One of the most enjoyable 2D Nintendo platformers I've played since... probably DKC2, actually. I figure it's so under-appreciated because it's not DKC (although IMO just as good or even better in it's own way), and because King of Swing was total balls.

Mario vs Donkey Kong 2 is really good, too... but it's not really a DK game at all, it's not even a platformer.

DK 94 was a puzzle game. It also nerfed the controls of Donkey Kong by making them far too forgiving and very slidey. After the first 4 levels of the game it becomes near a completely different game and abandons its platforming roots.

I just got back from FunSpot and I really wanted to play this game... but the freaking jump button was broken! The game was essentially unplayable. It really looked great, had an official looking cabinet, but every time I tried to jump past the first fire pit I would die.

Super bummer!

Woot New Hampshire! As a resident, I'm surprised I only made it to Funspot for the first time last summer at age 17. Of course I had won a gift card to it (well actually someone else did, but they gave it to me because they didn't want it), so I finally had a good excuse to go. My family enjoyed it, too.

They have been getting much more volume of people going in and out of the place. They have a decent maintenance staff on hand to repair the machines...there is only so much wear they can take. Most of the cabinets are 20+ years old. I need to make another trip up there soon.
