Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition – Girl saves Mario


Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition – Girl saves Mario via Waxy -

My three year old daughter and I play a lot of old games together. Her favorite is Donkey Kong. Two days ago, she asked me if she could play as the girl and save Mario. She’s played as Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Bros. 2 and naturally just assumed she could do the same in Donkey Kong. I told her we couldn’t in that particular Mario game, she seemed really bummed out by that. So what else am I supposed to do? Now I’m up at midnight hacking the ROM, replacing Mario with Pauline. I’m using the 2010 NES Donkey Kong ROM. I’ve redrawn Mario’s frames and I swapped the palettes in the ROM. I replaced the M at the top with a P for Pauline. Thanks to Kevin Wilson for giving me the lead on the tools and advice.

  1. Wouldn’t it be the Princess Peach edition? Mario usually rescues Princess Peach. Peach has blond hair. Daisy has brown hair.

  2. Very nice. It reminds me of the tree of the Milwaukee Makerspace members made, where Peach rescues Mario. ;)
