Why Didn't The NES Version Of Donkey Kong Have All Four Levels?

[QUOTE=LoganRuckman]This actually kind of bothers me. The NES has handled far bigger and far more technically impressive games than Donkey Kong, as well as games with far superior visuals. Super Mario Bros. 3 is an absolute powerhouse and is gigantic compared to Donkey Kong. Also, what about the Sup...

Dragon Warrior II (NES)

I've always thought DWII was the worst of the NES games. Like you said, it can be very imbalanced at certain points in the game.

(Fanfare for Dragon Warrior III can be inserted here)

Controllers: Most comfortable and least comfortable?

Most comfortable: NES dogbone.<br /><br />I've never gotten a hang of all the post-SNES controllers where you have to contort your hand in order to operate these "Shoulder Buttons." I'm not a fan of the crab hands!<br /><br />The NES controller was pretty basic, but had a great D-pad. The dogbone pu...

Replacing NES Game Batteries

Coop Ninja Game NES

Little Ninja Brothers?? (Sequel to "Kung Fu Heroes.")

I used to really enjoy this game too. It was a weird Dragon Warrior / top-down action hybrid.

How many of you do (or have done) actual programming?

I took a C++ programming class back in high school, umpteen years ago. Our final project was to make a game using C++ ... I flaked out big time and wrote a "High or Low" game in five minutes.

Also, in elementary school, we had LOGO on the Apple II. Not sure if that's programming.
