Do not worry, I am not about to submit a bunch of DK ports like someone did awhile ago, this is the only one.
This was one of Ocean Software's DK ripoffs, possibly before they decided to make an official port, which arguably is either worse or better depending on what you compare it too.
The only real things I can mention here is jumping is faster if you jump on frames that will propel the player forward a bit, hit detection is very weird too, if you jump over an enemy you can still get hit by it once you land, but if you jump as soon as you land you can completely avoid it.
also the items weirdly enough can also hurt you for some reason, I am not sure why this is tbh.
and the 3rd level has a interesting glitch where if I land on the downward moving platform right as it appears, I can stand there and not move at all, this is what makes me able to jump to the end of the stage. normally if you're in that area, a kill box will kill you, but I manage to jump into it before that happens.
anyway not much more I can say about this. as always the loading takes up the majority of the movie time, so here's the encode without it:

These sprites and sounds give me Lovecraft vibes. Although I'm no expert, I love ZX. Yes vote.
Totally irrelevant link My consoles: PS2 (PS1 as bw\c), NDS Lite (GBA as bw/c), 3DS XL, Wii U (vWii theoretically), PS4 slim.

Rumor has it that "someone" came across this game earlier this year and decided to skip it because it's not official. YES vote for entertainment. In the third stage, did you try taking the shortcut via the upward moving platform instead?

you dont get high enough there. because of how death works on those platforms, the earliest you can jump before the kill box gets you, you wont be able to reach it. since I can avoid it on the other side, I can jump on the platform and jump away before the kill box can get to me.

Dude, this version is so bad it deserves a no. But Yes because you are just too dang bold to submit. Very, very, ugly yes.
I recently discovered that if you haven't reached a level of frustration with TASing any game, then you haven't done your due diligence. ---- SOYZA: Are you playing a game? NYMX: I'm not playing a game, I'm TASing. SOYZA: Oh...so its not a game...Its for real? ---- Anybody got a Quantum computer I can borrow for 20 minutes? Nevermind...eien's 64 core machine will do. :) ---- BOTing will be the end of all games. --NYMX

Ok so you can get up to the end on that platform, I had randomly gotten on top of it from playing with the inputs a bit. So I'm cancelling this until I can really fix this. Sorry everyone. This game is just really really dumb.
