To clear up and potential confusion, 'Donkey Kong Pie Foundry' was the physical cart release of 'Donkey Kong Original Edition' as put out by RetroUSB (and now apparently discontinued? Any evidence of this release has been wiped out on their website, so I suspect the Nintendo ninjas got to them).

cool, I'm curious, how does the game differ from Donkey Kong?

@S.BAZ:

Well, the biggest difference is that this adds in the missing 50m 'pie/cement factory' level. There are some minor additions and revisions to the art and animation, but those are really subtle differences and it still mostly looks and plays like the vanilla NES version of Donkey Kong with the exception of that added level. Officially, it has only ever been made available as a pre-install in special editions of the red Wii in Europe in 2010 (where the ROM was presumably ripped from), and as a game registration bonus for the 3DS in the US.
