Joe Musashi Posted December 14, 2012 Share Posted December 14, 2012 (edited) A while ago I came across Ivan's (LS_Dracon) Donkey Kong demo for the 2600 and was totally blown away. I'm usually not so fond of flickering tricks, but if a version with such graphics had existed back in the day I would have gone crazy, flicker or not.So, I thought, why not try and program a title screen with these techniques. Turn's out the 2600 can actually come quite close to the arcade version.
