Donkey Kong Arcade Returns!

Posted by LilDwarf - May 4th, 2011

I just submitted my new game DK Arcade Returns to the portal! After a 4 year hiatus, I finally submitted something to newgrounds.

Even though this isn't an original game, keep in mind I just created it for fun, I'm not gaining anything from it and all credit goes to Nintendo. I did program it from scratch and it was quite the challenge. Go check it out, I hope I can continue to create more games for NG and not be on a long 4 or 5 year hiatus again.

Thanks to my beta testers and everyone for your support!

Awesome! I'm glad you got back on the game making horse!

Thanks! So am I :)

pretty cool recreation but theres a few bugs, i think the main one is when you jump horizontally to grab the first hammer on the first level you fall to below the level and you have to unstick yourself. also the sound is off sometimes

Thanks alot Luis! The glitch you mentioned is really wierd....it's one of those that may or may not happen, and I really hate those :S But I'll see what I can do.

Adictive game bro. Well done!


You misunderstood what I was saying in my review. I'll try and clarify what I meant

First, it IS NOT my pc or keyboard as this is a gaming laptop and have NO problems playing online games or ANY game on this site.

Second. The thing about the hammer. It's not when he has the hammer. It's after the hammer wears off. I sudden loose the ability to jump when he goes back to normal.

lmao well, what I said still applies, you seem to be the only one who has had this problem hahaha Even the hammer thing you're saying, you seem to be the only one out of thousands, so feel special about it :)

i thought it was awesome! im hoping you're gonna be making more

Thanks! I hope I make more, as well.

Fantastic work! I was amazed at how comprehensive it was!

i love it.its incredible(despite its graphics lol).one game anyone has too play!

Amazing game and faithful recreation. The strange thing is, a few days before you submitted the remake, I was telling my friend, a fan of Tenacious-D, about how a year or so before I had found an awesome online game during my music/rythm genre craze that starred only their music and would have shown it to him if it weren't for the fact I had forgotten its name and author. The only thing I really remembered were the songs, a random Lock Legion reference, and a pick with a dwarf on it. Then I played Donkey Kong Arcade Returns seeing it had medals (achievements in an arcade remake? Cool!) and saw you made it. Anyways, it's not really related to anything in partcular, just remembering the first great Flash games I played and the authors who made them.

Like it :), but too hard :(

It would be good......If you asses didn't keep making the games require fucking Firefox to prevent sticky keys, or his jumping was horseshit as well. An ANT could jump higher than that idiot.

the fuck are you talking about? I play it on all browsers and it plays very well... as for your other comment, it makes no sense hahaha

i ran into a couple bugs. grabbing the second hammer on the first screen made me fall down through the floor to the first level once or twice. Likewise, grabbing the first hammer once made me fall down below the first level, although jumping put me back on the platform proper.
