Donkey Kong Review

Ah, Donkey Kong, this is the game that started it all. When I first played this game in an arcade I loved it. I was camping and there was a few archade machines in the store. I played for a long time (and spent a lot of money!), but it got old.

The goal of the game is to make your way up a structure to save the princess while Donkey Kong rolls barrels down at you. You need to use a combonation of jumping and climbing up latters to reach the top.

Today I still enjoy a game from time to time. Donkey Kong is great to play a couple times a year for a few minutes, but beyond that there’s not much value here. If you were thinking about getting the new Donkey Kong Classic NES remake for GBS, forget it. Spend your money on SMB instead.

I give Donkey Kong a 6/10 [decent].
