It's a port, same as Jetpac (despite GoldenEye containing an unused, somewhat functional Spectrum emulator). My guess is that they used the original graphics, but eyeballed the mechanics so they didn't use the original code.Madeline wrote: ↑Thu Jun 14, 2018 7:43 pmThis thread on the Donkey Kong Forums argues that the one in DK 64 is closely based on, but not identical to, the Japanese arcade ROM. So it could be a port or a rebuild, rather than straight-up emulation. I don’t know the game well enough to spot the differences.
Ooh, I love fun things! (Games, both video and traditional, discussion. looser posting styles allowed)

I had to restart the Food Critic ET after the AI seemingly runs out of script about 10 minutes in, but it's pretty easy once you guess the obvious opportunity. Unfortunately, it seems like you need to be a lot more clever to get a higher score.
