Donkey Kong 2: Lost Levels
This is a hack of Garry Kitchen's Donkey Kong. The ramp and rivet screens of the original have been converted into the elevator and conveyor screens respectively:

So why even bother with a 4k Donkey Kong hack, now that we have such great looking homebrew versions out there? Because I always liked Garry's port, notwithstanding the missing screens. Garry said in an interview he would have done all four levels if Coleco had given him more time and an 8k cart. In any case, he put out a great version of DK within the framework he was given, and I hope this will be a fitting tribute to his accomplishment. I was also inspired by batari's great work on this thread; without his disassembly and example none of this would have been possible.
There are still a few remaining bugs. The elevators have no platforms, the conveyors will take you right off the screen, and the whole game often crashes completely after restart. But it's playable straight through, so this is a good time to open it up for testing and feedback. Just bear in mind that I still have only 4k to work with.
Nukey combined the above hack and the original game into a playable 4-level Donkey Kong. The sequence goes: ramps, rivets, elevators, and conveyors, and then repeats.
