Donkey Kong Junior for C64

For those of you not reading lemon64 (can't blame you... :)


I'm proud to announce the imminent release of Donkey Kong Junior for the Commodore 64 (PAL and NTSC).

It's one of the classic arcade games of the early 1980s, but unfortunately never got a C64 release. We've spent some time to get rid of that problem.

The game will be available as a free download on Saturday, November 8th 2014.

What are you gonna get? A 100% accurate port of the Atari 7800 version, which is highly regarded as an excellent conversion of the arcade original.
Check out this review if you want to learn more about the game:

The graphics have been done from scratch to the highest standard by STE'86 with hints taken from the arcade and the NES version, but tweaked to look best on the C64.
The music and sound effects have been painstakingly recreated for the SID by encore and complement the game brilliantly.

To make the wait until Saturday a little bit easier for you, here are some screenshots:

Looks awesome, and I remember that fake Donkey Kong Jr. too... I spent hours of my youth trying to figure out that password :(

People. It's a mediocre-at-most game, you wouldn't even take a crap on it 15-20 years ago. What about the hype, or am I missing something?

To be honest, I could agree with Jailbird as much that personally I don't enjoy *playing* this game at all, which is more a fault of the original game concept and mechanics. Meanwhile the reverse-engineering, coding, graphics and sound work are all extremely respectable. Especially the graphics, where the C64-reinterpretation improves on the original.

@Grasstust: C64 graphics are not "chunky". That's your PC monitor. o_O
