DKC Mania

Hack of Donkey Kong Country


DKC Mania is a hack that aims to mix some old and new together much like the game that inspired this hack Sonic Mania. Some new levels and ideas are remixed with some reimaginings of levels from DK’s handheld past. The patch also has many new color schemes for enemies and levels.

To patch use a (U) 1.0 headerless rom and use either Beat or Flips.

Best DKC1 hack I've played.

Reviewed By: limefiasco on 09 May 2022

I can’t believe I didn’t review this earlier! I left feedback in the forum thread but failed to properly review this fantastic romhack. This game manages to capture a lot of the charm, design, and thoughtfulness of the original game but with some new twists. The difficulty scaling is right on par with the original as well, which is really impressive. Most levels have been revamped, and the few that haven’t (water levels - technical limitations I believe) have at least gotten re-colors and a few different enemies to make up for it. The bosses are much more interesting than the original bosses, most of them being just slightly altered to increase their difficulty. The platforming is varied and refreshing in each world, and the use of enemies more broadly across worlds makes for some great new experiences. I really can’t say enough good things about this hack. Most of it’s bigger flaws are limitations in either available hacking tools or the game itself. But that is probably less than 10% of the hack easily. The last world and last few levels were an absolute treat!

Only negative things would be water levels not receiving more changes (tech limitations I think) and a few bosses not being changed (same issue probably). I suppose you could harp on some of the platforming sprites and graphics not being perfectly clean, but that’s not really the authors fault in my opinion, and they aren’t that glaring anyways.

Thank you for this wonderful addition to the DKC series!
