Donkey Kong


Hi ALL
I was wondering if is possible to play the classic Donkey Kong on a Linux machine(Debian testing).
All I know is that the package zsnes is a emulator for that:
(Emulator of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (TM)
ZSNES allows you to play classic games written for the "SNES" game
console on a GNU/Linux system. It supports advanced features such as
multiplayer gameplay over a TCP/IP network.)
But I have no idea how to do that.
Could someone say something about it please?
Thanx

ZSnes is pretty easy to use, it's identical to the Windows version, it even supports joysticks. There are a lot of websites that host SNes ROMs with disclaimers saying that it's OK if you used to own the game and want a backup copy, but otherwise if you download it and get caught they can't be held liable. Just google SNes ROMS or something and you're bound to find it. I use it and gens(Sega Genesis Emulator) because my old Sega Genesis exploded, so rather than try to hunt down another one, I just turned to emulators. The games are actually pretty small, like less than 5 MB apiece small.

If you haven't installed ZSnes, google it, there are downloads for it on their website.

You could try Mame for Linux. I think it is called XMame.

I tried to install zsnes under Ubuntu (debian based) and it said I needed four dependencies. So I just did "sudo apt-get install zsnes" and it did most all the work for me. to start it I just open a terminal and type "zsnes" and it loads.
