Title: ROM Hacks: Donkey Kong '94 (GB) Gets Its First Level Hack

Update By: Imaynotbehere4long

The Game Boy version of Donkey Kong, also known as Donkey Kong '94, was a huge expansion to the original arcade game, featuring many new levels, enemies, and mechanics. It even got a spiritual successor in the form of the first Mario vs. Donkey Kong game. Although these games have their fans, neither title has received a level hack until now. This is a simple hack, featuring only four levels with little else changed, but it should be enough to give those who've beaten the game an extra challenge (and perhaps give level designers encouragement to make their own level hacks of this game).

I'm gonna have to try this bad boy out, then I'll look into the editor and see if I can come up with some level ideas.  :D

Good job on this hack.  :thumbsup:

I just wish there was documentation on how to decompress the graphics (even Lunar Compress doesn't support this game) or edit the music so we could give our level hacks that extra personal touch. I'd appreciate if someone with more knowledge about this than I looked into it so it isn't up to some random newcomer (me) changing one individual hex value of the GBS at a time.
