Donkey Kong for Atari references

Postby The Banana Bird » February 26th, 2012, 9:53 am

If you haven't noticed, the red klaptraps in Donkey Kong Jr. are named Snapjaw. Did Rare just get lazy and create the Klaptrap off of this? What about Snapjaw? Was he actually not going to be in DKC2 but they found this name and said "Hey, why not use this name to make a new fish enemy!".You have probably also saw the OIL on the oil drums in the game. Those probably turned into the OIL drums of DKC. Some stuff in the game turned in DKC things. Any thing I missed that turned into a enemy in DKC from the DK Atari game?

Um, you do know, the Atari DK games are ports of the Arcade ones, right?

But anyway, it's entirely possible that Rare was referencing the DK arcade games in the DKC games.

I wouldn't call it LAZY. I think it's rather creative. Like how they kept the oil drums, barrels, and DONKEY KONG for goodness sake.
