Making a stop-motion version of Donkey Kong is not for the faint of heart
Here’s Donkey Kong as you’ve never seen him before—recreated entirely with perler beads.
YouTube user Guiz de Pessemier is the man behind the faithful recreation: His stop-motion video of the 1981 classic game is a near-perfect reconstruction, complete with three levels of "Jumpman" action. Creating the video required hundreds of perler beads, plenty of photos, lots of patience, and one crisp black bed sheet.
Take a look:
I guess the benefit of ‘playing’ a game stop-motion style is that you really can ace it. I was never as good as Guiz is at downing the kidnapping Kong.
