Donkey Kong remake for Roku (Preview Alpha v0.8)
« on: December 11, 2016, 01:59:08 PM »
Hi DK fans,

After releasing, early this year, open source remakes of other retro-games (Prince of Persia and Lode Runner) for the Roku platform (streaming box and smart tvs) I decided to work on a new project to remake Donkey Kong (arcade) to the same platform, checkout the video with the current state of the game:

I don't have a Roku, but that looks pretty sweet so far. Great work!

I will create a private channel with the preview version when I release v0.9, that way you can install easily from a link.

For now you would need to download the code repository on the github and side load it on you device enabled on developer mode: https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/Loading+and+Running+Your+Application+Walkthrough

If you find this complicated, wait until the weekend then I will publish here the link to install v0.9

Okay, probably won't have time before Christmas to give this a go, so will wait for v0.9 release.  Looking forward to trying it out!
