One of the neatest thing we’ve seen the past few days has been a cool, yet simple hack. A father who plays classic games with his daughter decided to take matters into his own hands when she asked if Pauline, the princess in Donkey Kong, was an alternate playable character.
“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 Peach 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.”
