"Yippee! There are two homebrew DKs in development right now! I enjoyed elements from both, and if both are ultimately released on cart, I'll probably buy both. Never can get enough Donkey Kong, after all."

Ditto :grin:

Honestly, I am torn between both versions of DK. DK VCS has better audio and more cutscenes; DK Arcade has more accurate levels.

Wouldn't that be great? Although D.K. VCS is 32K Superchip, and DK Arcade 2600 is 32K DPC+. You would need a custom Melody board, 2 Melody boards, or one Melody board and one board with a Superchip.

OK, fine, so twist my arm and make me buy both.  As long as they both come CIB, I'm fine with that. :)

^^Is there any possible way to make a "doubl3 ender" out of both DKs?

Donkey Kong VCS is a dream come true!

 

There are (official) news about a cartridge release on the store?

 

Thanks.

Well, it's still WIP, but I guess it's about time I finish this. There is not much more ROM space left :(, so it will be mostly bug fixing. I will probably get back to it when I have reached the next milestone of my current project.

If you need extra space for more features, levels etc. I am sure I can do some magic there. :)

Thank you very much for the answer.

Please, don't let it unfinished: I think a lot of people like me it's waiting for an official release.
Donkey Kong VCS is the game that I want for Christmas, exactly like almost 30 years ago! :)

What is your new project? Maybe Mario Bros VCS? :D

Thanks

Joe, please don't give up on us! I like both DKs and will buy both if/when they get released. For some reason, I can't get enough remakes of classics like DK or Pacman. :)

Thanks! I really appreciate your offer. There's one more feature I'd like to have. I'll contact you when I resume the project and have cleaned up the code a little.

Do take Thomas up on his offer.
If your game is 2K, he will find about 3K free, seriously!
He was born speaking 6507, then learned to talk, I'm sure.

Simply amazing looking game, so cannot wait to see both Donkey Kong on cart. It seems so right to have these unwrite the terrible one that had been around for decades.
