Donkey Kong

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Nathan Verni Donkey Kong for the Nintendo Game boy, is a perfect blend of puzzle , action and adventure. This game, which is based on the game of the same name for the Atari, features the infamous Mario, as well as Donkey Kong, the Princess, and Donkey Kong Jr. However, unlike in the Donkey Kong series for Super Nintendo or Game Boy, Donkey Kong in this game is the villain. He has kidnapped the Princess and it is up to you, as Mario, to save her.

Graphics 8 out of 10

As far as Game Boy is concerned, these graphics are fairly good. It's very easy to see everything clearly, even when a lot of action is on the screen at the same time. The only time I ever had trouble seeing was on some of the boards with darker backgrounds. The graphics get the job done.

Music and Sound 8 out of 10

For a Game Boy game, the music and sound is good. Typical video game music accompanies the action, as well as your typical bleeping sound affects. The Music does add suspense to the more dangerous parts of the game. Very Good.

Game Challenge 10 out of 10

This game is surprisingly difficult. As stated before, the game has many puzzle aspects involved in the game play. Mario must use his wits to figure out how to get to certain places. Their is also time limits in other parts. Although the puzzles get kind of frustrating, they add to the reply value and make the game a more lasting experience. And it requires you TO THINK!!! Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10 I enjoyed playing this game greatly. I think its one of the best games for Game Boy of its time. The final sequence with Donkey Kong is awesome. This game reveals many games for many more advanced systems. No matter how good the graphics of a game are, the gameplay is what determines it a good game. That's what this is, pure and simple fun. I highly recommend it. Its great for car trips.


Like stated before, the puzzle's get a bit frustrating, but nothing too bad. Its a pretty non-frustrating game.

Replayability 7 out of 10

Because you can go through some boards more than one way, or pick different courses, the reply value of this game is pretty high. Once you complete the whole game, you might not want to start another game right away. But hang on to it, you'll be playing again soon.

Game Value 10 out of 10

If you could find this game used it would be great. The normal price is also well worth its game play value. Hours of enjoyment.

Overall 9 out of 10

Overall, get this game. If Game Boy is still your main area of video game enjoyment, and you haven't got it yet, what are you waiting for? Go out and save princess!
