Donkey Kong Deranged What is different with springs?
« on: May 22, 2023, 07:19:06 pm »
Was playing Donkey Kong Deranged today in the Big Cage..  There seems to be quite the difference on the Springs from Level 3 on. There any tips and pointers on this. I got to 261k today just messing around.

The main difference with the springs is they have a wider variation between spring types.  Instead of there being 16 different spring types, there are now 23.

In regular Donkey Kong the spring types are numbered 0 to 15.
The equivalent numbering system springs in Deranged would be numbered -3 to 19.

The safe spots are still there, but because of the wider swing in spring types the size of the safe spots is now 6 pixels wide instead of 13 pixels wide.

On the other hand, because there is a wider range between the longest and shortest spring types, depending on the combination of springs, there is occasionally more time to climb the ladder from a safe spot.

Yeah i died 2 times yesterday standing in the safe spot.. I had to step back one.  Seemed like springs where coming extra fast on later levels and very hard to get to save spots because of all different spring sizes.
