Cover for the fictional Haz-Matt Carts game.

The game features many references to various video game series, including a character directly spoofing Mario: Captain Carpenter. While he mainly parodies the Mario series (see here for details), the fact that he's a carpenter is likely a reference to his original role in Donkey Kong. He also references the game when saying that his "Miss" always had a bad feeling about him working in the warehouse because there are too many barrels. Additionally, the cover for the fictional Haz-Matt Carts game features an image of him weilding a hammer, possibly referencing his weapon in Donkey Kong.


Matt Hazard's company D3 doesn't own any right over Nintendo's Donkey Kong series, but they only included minor references avoiding any copiright issue.
