Donkey Kong - Into The Dark - rom-hack
« on: September 01, 2020, 04:29:26 am »
Hi all,

My new rom-hack Donkey Kong Into The Dark is pre-released to the Kong League today.

A little info. It is the regular DK gameplay, but after a few seconds the lights go out and the board is no longer visible. You have to complete it in the dark with a little help of periodic flashes that light up the board. These flashes come every 4 seconds in the early levels. But this interval increases slightly each level, up to 9 seconds in the last level. In this rom-hack Pauline has to accept that jumpman doesn't collect her umbrella, hat and purse. The collectable items are replaced by light sources: candle, lightbulb and flashlight. Scoring for these items is exactly like the original game, but when you grab one it has the additional effect that the board is lighted for a short period of time.

Hope you have as much fun playing it as I had creating it...

The working patch is available for download in the KL Discord https://discord.gg/rkUQczn.

B.t.w. The accompanying marquee is designed by user Elskippo. Many thanks !
