The default setting for the gender of heroes in video games is male, so its really cool that The World’s Most Awesome Dad hacked Donkey Kong so his daughter could rescue Mario and play the game as Pauline, turning that character into a hero.
The girl, aged three, loved Donkey Kong and played as Peach in super Mario Bros.2. She assumed she could play DK as a girl but was disappointed she couldn’t. With help from friends online, the enterprising dad, Mike Mika, a Reddit user, reworked tiles after hacking the SNES Rom. A few sleepless nights later, the result is the video below.
