Product information "Donkey Kong Free Play and High Score Save Kit"



Donkey Kong is considered to be the earliest video game with a storyline that visually unfolds on screen. The eponymous Donkey Kong character is the game's de facto villain. The hero is a carpenter originally unnamed in the Japanese arcade release, later named Jumpman and then Mario. Donkey Kong kidnaps Mario's girlfriend, originally known as Lady, but later renamed Pauline. The player must take the role of Mario and rescue her. This is the first occurrence of the damsel in distress scenario that provided the template for countless video games to come.

Had a choice, bought the Highscoresaves version

We like to support Highscoresaves that currently develops new kits for our games. Kit works perfectly and doesn't use those stupid fat header pins that's too big for Nintendo sockets to make an easy install

Why are there different kits? Online, Offline, Braze?

Why are there different kits? Online, Offline, Braze?

This is a GREAT question!

Let's start with this  - "What is the difference between this kit and the Braze kit?"

Well, the answer is not much! This is a "crossover" kit that both Braze and we did. The kit for this particular game is very similar to the Braze kit or as we like to say, the Braze kit is very similar to our kit.

Now, when we get to Donkey Kong, any of our online kits or even all of our exclusive kits, then, that's another story! Supporting current development is ALWAYS appreciated and will keep more and more NEW and EXCLUSIVE kits coming out for years to come. Support the current guy! :)

Our kits also have a few more bells and whistles. Attract sounds can be adjusted and used in conjunction with free play, so no coins are needed. Our menu system is screen based, no need for a service and/or test switch. All Braze kits requires these. Our kits do not.
