Donkey Kong for Commodore 64


(Link to video)
The debut of Mario.

Game premise: Donkey Kong has captured Mario's girlfriend and has taken her to a constructions site....thankfully Mario has not yet transitioned occupations from carpenter to plumber. As usual Mario must save the girl.

The C64 port has levels made up of combinations of 4 varying sub-stages:

  • Broken Girders
  • Elevators
  • Riveted Girders
  • Conveyors

TAS Notes:

  • Aims for fastest time to show and finish all four sub-stages. This requires selecting the 2nd difficulty setting and doing the Broken Girder stage twice.
  • For a VERY minor time trade-off (usually 1-2 frames), I typically make Mario jump backwards...just because I think it's amusing.

That's really all I have to say.
