Nice job 8)

Must say I'm impressed...it's a shame that you haven't given Mario a proper 'jump' animation but other than that, I really like what you've done with the graphics. There's a couple of minor bugs in there that could do with ironing out though, I've found at times that when you get to the girder underneath Donkey Kong on the first screen, he stops throwing barrels altogether for instance...plus the first time I got to the second screen, I was getting 'stuck' on ladders for some reason :? although that seemed fine when I played it again. Also found that I had to redefine my keys every go or it reverted back to the defaults (cursor keys and space to jump).

Give it a few tweaks though (especially the thing over having to redefine the keys over and over again) and all will be OK. Well done.

Back again! Latest version of Donkey Kong is available here,

http://rapidshare.com/files/401119465/DONKEY_KONG.rar (Updated 20/06/10)

1) Redefined keys now kept after first game.
2) Level 3 ladder bug fixed.
3) Level 4 hammer/falling bug fixed.
4) Hammer music tweaked (loop not so obvious now).
5) Missing music reinstated.
6) Added jumping frame to Mario.
7) Barrels getting stuck bug fixed.

Have decided to stick with slower jumping, sorry to those who hate it!
It's not arcade perfect, but overall I'm happy with it now. Did I mention F2 switches background On/Off?

Once again, thanks for your comments & suggestions, Mick.

Very cool! Even though I suck at the game I've always enjoyed giving it a bash from time to time.
