Technologizer's Benj Edwards celebrated the anniversary by rounding up some of the game's odder sidelights. For instance, it was originally going to be a game about Popeye, Bluto, and Olive Oyl--and among its stranger offshoots was a pocket-sized game in which Donkey Kong and Mario faced off in hockey.
