Title: Donkey Kong Remake for Roku (Beta v0.10)
Post by: lvcabral on February 05, 2017, 04:45:39 PM
Just released the first beta version with several new features implemented (barrels, fire balls, fire foxes, cement tray, hammer usage)

I also added an option to choose between the US and Japan board level order.

For those who has Roku can install it for free from:

Recommended devices: Roku 4, Roku 3, Roku 2 HD (3000X), Roku 2 XD (3050X), Roku 2 XS (3100X), new Roku Streaming Stick (3600X) and new 4K Roku TV's (6000X).

Lower end devices and non-4K TVs has poor graphics performance

Thanks!  I'd tried the beta out on my Insignia Roku TV and while it looked nice it ran too slow to be fun.  I've got a Roku 2 box as well on a different TV so I'll it out there and let you know what I think.

I ran it on a Roku 3 - it looks nice and sounds pretty good! Nice work. The controls leave quite a bit to be desired, though, as not being able to straight jump is pretty frustrating. Also, I keep falling off girders in spots that I should definitely should not be falling (by the top hammer on barrel boards and on the edges of rivet boards).

All in all, great work though! I hope you continue to work on it!

To use the remote is tricky but you did not noticed that there is indeed a straight jump option is the OK button.

There is some fine tunning I need to do with the edges in particular when moving to the left.

Thanks for the feedback

I just updated the v0.11 with a couple of fixes, one of them is the fall to the left, I just played all boards and made 50 K for the first time  ;D
