Donkey Kong:Original Edition is still the NES version with pie factory or...?

#1xLexLuth0rxPosted 11/11/2012 11:52:58 AM
Is it an actual true emulation of the original arcade version? I'm sure anyone that's played the original arcade game and the NES versions know there are other subtle differences between the two beyond the removal of the pie factory level.

I absolutely loved the arcade game but if that's not the same one offered here, I'm gonna pass on picking up Paper Mario on the eShop and get it $10 cheaper at Frys. Anyone able to help me clarify this?

Also the animation of DK grabbing Pauline and climbing up a ladder plays at the end of each level, but it's not the exact same as the arcade version.

Is it really that hard to emulate the true arcade version for a portable release in 2012?

It's not about difficulty. It's about money. It's more expensive to write a new arcade emulator than to use an existing NES emulator on the 3DS. To my knowledge, Nintendo has never really made an emulator for any of their own Arcade games.

How can it be a pie factory when it was always a construction site?

Cement factory, not pie factory. The levels are construction-themed.

And people went ape **** over what essentially amounts to a palette swap and deleted level of the original game? Typical.

Yes, and it's complaining that every port of Mario Bros. either features Spineys, or if does have standard Koopa Troopa(style turtles), they never hope out of their shells kick it back over then hop back in to continue moving. The only time there was an Emulation of any Nintendo arcade was DK64's version of Donkey Kong. But for every port, there are always differences.
