    It sounds very possible. That would be sweet, because I played the game using nesDS and it was like impossible.

    I gave up after like 5 minutes.

    I fully support the idea of remaking Kid Icarus. That would be the best DS homebrew game ever, but I am a huge kid Icarus fan.

    I beat this back in the day then I played it again and can't imagine how. I'd be a cool project but wouldn't it be easier to port the nes version and make it touch control

    I'd like to see this happen, but please don't go and add overly hard as hell levels and or stupid shit from other games in it like skjmin did in his nsmb3 hack.

    Porting requires the source, remaking does not. Unless the NES version is opensource/abandonware/etc. the chances of having the source are next to zero.

    I would really like to see a remake for the DS, but I can't help you. I'm working on my own DS Homebrew project right now.
    Maybe you should make this into a project page.

    What about making two 'modes'?
    Classic Mode which is as close to a 100% faithful recreation of the game mechanics as you can make, and then Modern which has the changes like Checkpoints?
    Or maybe a series of options that could be saved to a profile with defaults for Classic and Modern? (Although I think just Classic/Modern as described above would be fine.)


    Also, I F@#&!NG HATE those maps... they make the levels look so deceptively easy it's not funny.
    Years ago I heard rave reviews for the game and saw the maps in an old Nintendo Power and went out and bought the game... which then proceeded to kick my ass repeatedly.

    Thanks people for all the reactions ^^

    I really like the Classic mode idea ^^ for people who don't want the new features or just for fun like a hard mode

    Would like to see it!(hey I fellow you on twitter do I? @Angry_Alex_bird)

    Yeah sounds really great! If there ever exits a homebrew, I would like to join the forces with some easy stuff.(aka beta testing, ideas etc.)

    If you can do this and do it right, you will be a God in the DS community.

    I always wanted to play Kid Icarus. If you pull this off correctly, as _Chaz_ said, you'll be a God in the DS community.

    Good luck, bro.

    Just a quick suggestion: Based on the screenshots, you should make the pillars a different (faded? darker?) color than the platforms you walk on. As is, they look as though they could be barriers which may confuse some first-time players.
