Animal Crossing

How do you exit the Donkey Kong Math Jr. game?

Games Guru: Try the Z button or the Start button. One of those should do the trick. If this doesn’t work, write back and I will take your question directly to the highest source — Nintendo.

Is there a code for Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda?

Games Guru: This is an excellent question that was hotly debated. I have never accessed Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda in Animal Crossing. From what I hear, 15 NES games are available in Animal Crossing, and codes for nine of those games are readily available, but Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda are not among them. Sorry.

How do you get a fishing rod?

Games Guru: You purchase the fishing rod at Nook’s Store. If it’s not in stock right away, return after a few days and it should be available.

What is the list of NES games and how do you get them? Like “You get Donkey Kong on your birthday.”

Games Guru: There are 15 NES games buried in Animal Crossing. They include Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. Math, Excitebike, Wario’s Woods and good old NES Baseball. You earn these games through a number of ways, but here’s a shortcut: Visit Tom Nook and say you want to talk about “other things,” then give him the following codes:

  • For Donkey Kong: 2n5@N%8JUjE5fj ljcGr4%ync5EUp
  • For Golf: Crm%h4BNRbu98d 9un8exzZKwo7Zl
  • For Donkey Kong Jr. Math: bA5PC%8JUjE5fj ljcGr4%ync5EUp
  • For NES Baseball: 1n5%N%8JUjE5fj lEcGr4%ync5eUp

    K.K. Slider, Actully, there is a silver shovel but you only get it in City Folk. Here’s how: 1.Go to the city past 8:00.(It only worked for me when I went past 10:00) 2.If the cones to the right are pushed aside, go through the tunnel. 3.You will be in the Resetii Survalence Center. Talk to Mr.Resetii and he will give you the Silver Shovel. It can get more money by hitting rocks. You can go back to the place where you got the silver shovel the same way you did it before,but you can’t you can’t get another one unless you are a different person.

    how the heck do u get blanka??you know that no faced cat!in the GC version
    i have traveled to my 2nd town several times i have never gotten her…
    Am I doing somthing wrong?

  28. Dear molten ice and ky: You need to go to Tom Nook and see if he has a net. If he does, buy it. Catch Bugs: If a bug is flying, chase the bug and press the A button. Awesome! Love, Matt. P.S. It’s hard to catch a bug when he flies all over where you moved.

  29. Dear animal lover: Thanks for the help! But at Tom Nook’s, I didn’t finish work………..

  30. I met a mean blue cat named Tom, does anyone know him?

  33. What is this game about?

  34. animal lover // February 20, 2009 at 8:47 pm // Reply

    hint: toget a golden shovel just bury it for 24 hours then dig it back up. the greatest ting about a golden shovel is that you can make money trees u need 99,000 bells to make a money tree and just like fruit you will grow the same amount of money that you buryed.

  35. I have anamal crossing city folk for wii.It is rely fun

  37. I love this game :mrgreen: 🙂

  38. Haha, yea right // January 23, 2009 at 7:41 pm // Reply

    They need a wild world part to this

  39. Worst game ever.:(

  40. To “The Man”,It would be cool if this were real.Shopping at Tom Nooks instead of Wal-Mart,Able Sisters instead of Gap,Shampoodle instead of salons,and becoming cousins with a red fox! It would be paradise!

  41. Tom Nook does not only care about money.He wants it so he can expand his shop.When you get Nookingtons,his obsesion stops.But it`s still a mystery if he is mean because after you get the Nookingtons upgrade,sometimes people in your town will want to show you letters and they will say, “Help! that racoon is tortoring us!” It is probaly from Timmy and Tommy,apparently Tom Nook`s nephews.

  42. molten ice you buy it at the store and you u swing it to catch bugs=)

  43. I think this game is so fun. I wish I could actually live in it.

    My codde for ACWW is 0603-0670-3499

  45. Well, molten ice, the answer is a secret.

  46. how do i get a bug catching net and how do I catch bugs?

    • Buy one from Nook. Equip your net. Find a bug. Or a resident. And press the action button. Bugs, you can sell or put in your house. Residents, however, you can’t catch. Hit that resident 3 time to make em’ mad. Bye! 😉

  47. thank you i dident know

  48. can someone tell me what a pitfall is

  49. Dear Gaa: A pitfall is something that you bury underground and when someone (or you) walks over it, he (or she) will fall down.

  50. yes, it has mr ressetti! Also in the city, at random times, if you go straight to the right, you might get in the ressetti survalianc center.
