    When I was 10 I got a C64 and thought it could be programmed in natutal language. I literally wrote something like:

    "10 I want a game where I am a plumber who needs to avoid barrels which are launched by Kong by jumping them. I need to reach the top of the screen, etc.."

    Unfortunately I only got a Syntax error in exchange of my passionate description of the game.

    35 years later I found the will to try it again and this time things have gone a bit better.

    With this project I am trying to replicate the behaviour of the original Donkey Kong by Nintendo.
    I tried to simulate the game logic and timing spending multiple hours watching videos of the original game.

    Current version: Final 1.01

    What is implemented
    - Game is designed at its original resolution of 224x256 pixels at 60 FPS
    - All 4 original levels
    - Game logics, controls, collisions
    - Difficulty increases each time player completes level 4
    - Score saving (it saves scores in clear ini file)
    - Online score saving
    - Animations and scripted sequences among levels
    - Enemies (Barrels, Fires, Springs,Cement Pies,Fireballs, Fireghosts)
    - Full Sounds and Music
    - Joypad support
    - Arcade/Redux Mode

    What is missing
    - New level(s)

    Arcade Mode lets you play the original 4 levels in the same oder as in the Jap version of DK. Name and Score will be saved only if bigger than 5th place

    Redux Mode will include new levels when I will find the time to design them
    Name and Score are saved regardless to their values
    This is the option to chose if you want to save online all of your scores



    it took me about 3 months coding on average 2 hours per day, please try it and provide feedback, suggestions, report bugs! :)

    Hi,
    I just added online score saving which seems to work so far.

    Anyone interested to appear in the Leaderboard and beat the highscore? :)
