Donkey Kong 3 is the NES port of the black sheep of the Donkey Kong trilogy.

Unused Sprites


Tiles for Donkey Kong's hands that don't have vines overlapping them. Most of these tiles could have been used for when DK is at the bottom of the vines, but they never are.

Below are mockups showing how these tiles would have been used:

Revisional Differences

In the Animal Crossing release, the controls were slightly modified so the player can press Up and Down to switch between options at the title screen.
