Recreation of the pixel font from Nintendo's "Donkey Kong Classics" (1988) on the NES, which combines the fonts from "Donkey Kong" (1981) and "Donkey Kong Jr." (1982).

The one distinctive feature of this font are the "G" and the exclamation mark. Note that in the original "Donkey Kong" (1981) the period/full stop and the ".," (mapped here to the ";") were one pixel higher than in the "Classics" version. In addition, this recreation includes the maths symbols ("+", "-", "×", "÷") from "Donkey Kong Jr. Math" (1983). "Donkey Kong Jr. Math" and "Donkey Kong 3" (1983) also used this same font, except they changed the "8".

Other than the additions of the maths symbols, only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

@Patrick Lauke (redux) - What a great combination of NES glyphs from the Donkey Kong games.  Thanks!  :^)

It'd be nice if you could add some diacritics aswell - but, only if you're up for it.
