Donkey Kong Country Palette restoration

Hack of Donkey Kong Country

Description:

Here it is: a real restoration project for the infamous Donkey Kong Country for GBA. It wasn’t a bad port after all, the gameplay was completely intact and also had the new Hero and Attack modes.

It’s still a little behind from the SNES version due to the resolution reducement and soundtrack (which sounds worse, but still sounds good!). But it’s an undeniable improvement.

This wasn’t the typical SNES to GBA palette restoration. This was hell. After Rare reduced all sprites and tilesets, none of the palettes matched so they had to be repaletted manually using Photoshop and a custom tool made exclusively for this.

What’s missing:

  • probably a few bonus rooms
  • all new palettes not coming from the SNES version (basically, minigames and map)

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Donkey Kong Country (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).gba
