Dad Hacks Donkey Kong

A gamer named Mike Mika has hacked Donkey Kong so that his daughter can play as Pauline. Mike's young daughter asked if she could play as Pauline and save Mario so Mike decided to hack the game so his daughter could do just that. Mika's Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition lets Pauline rescue Mario for a change from the clutches of Donkey Kong. Mike's daughter had been playing Super Mario Bros 2 as Princess Toadstool when she asked why couldn't do the same in Donkey Kong. So Super Dad came along to save the day!

"My three year old daughter and I play a lot of old games together," Mika wrote on his YouTube channel. "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."
Check out the video of Mika's hack below.

The patch is available so you can try the game as Pauline yourselves.
