"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.
