Re: DK hits the big screen

10% on Rotten Tomatoes

For comparison, Super Mario Bros. is 16%. Quite the feat passing that limbo stick!

"How much can a barrel hurt?"

Well, looks as terrible as I thought. Though the Toru Iwatani appearance was unexpected.

Re: Bootleg allusion?

Hah! Must've been pretty out of it to screw up something so routine.

Yeah, you can g'won and split the topic if wanna. I just thought it'd give this thread more justification. It's not like the arcade games themselves really fall under this site's rubric, anyway, so I thought why not.

Bootleg allusion?

Specifically this: Sometimes our sprites used to change size for no apparent reason! I've long found this statement baffling. What was the precedent for this? Mario's mushrooms? Then there's the notorious bootleg, "Crazy Kong" . Notice how in all but the first board DK CK is off model, and...

Kiwi 64

So some dude made this pastiche of Rare's N64 games (most overtly Banjo-Kazooie)

I haven't gotten really far into since the control scheme takes some getting used to. But it's a neato diversion all the same. Enjoy.

Re: Who was responsible for DK's redesign?

I think it was always a Miyamoto addition, see the earlier DK'94: http://img.gamefaqs.net/box/9/8/1/2981_front.jpg I have no doubt that they were released close enough to share overlapping dev-time, but I wouldn't be terrible surprised if the sketch Rare received was originally intended for the '94 ...

Re: Who was responsible for DK's redesign?

Ah yeah, man, good show! Thanks!

Geez, DK looks a bit Battletoads-ish there, doesn't he?

Who was responsible for DK's redesign?

So I was wondering about this recently: who exactly was responsible? Mobygames credits both Steve Mayles & Kevin Bayliss as character designers but surely only one was ultimately responsible:

Has this ever been confirmed?

Bonus Room Blitz Inspiration?

Back in 1981 Nintendo had another gorilla-centric arcade game called Sky Skipper, which never left Japan as far as I can ascertain. The point of interest here is the music -- one of the level clear jingles, which ( heard hear at the 2:48 mark ) sounds very DKC-ish, very Bonus Room Blitz -esque to me...

Re: Animals that inspired the characters of the DKC games

Sorry for the mega-huge bump, but there is too much potential for this thread. :geek: http://www.gamehiker.com/gallery/albums/dk/dkc/croctopus.jpg I believe Croctopus was inspired by a real species called 'Blue-ringed' or 'Blue-lined' octopus http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/wp-content/blogs.dir/4...

Re: Yoshi's Island hates me

Are you using the reset button?

A couple of games I've played on the SNES would lose data when I did.
