Donkey Kong Original Edition





Donkey Kong Original Edition 


Nintendo likes to support those that support them. They do so with their Club Nintendo. Those of us that purchased certain games were provided a code to download, and play Donkey Kong Original Edition for free. This is one of the first arcade games I ever played, so it brought back memories. We have to jump over things like barrels to save the woman from the giant monkey. Then we make it to the next screen which is much more difficult.

Donkey Kong Original Edition is a really old game. The old school graphics do not hold up to snuff compared to new games. They do however hold a bit of nostalgia for people like myself. The same can be said for the music and special effect sounds. They will bring up old memories of places we first played this game. It is also neat to play and review an old school game like Donkey Kong Original Edition on the Nintendo 3DS.

The controls can be a bit touchy at times in Donkey Kong Original Edition. I got stuck climbing ladders right at the top on more than one screen. Sometimes twice on the same screen. Gauging how far Mario can jump is another learning lesson. I remember some of these problems from the arcade version as well.

I am thankful that Nintendo gave out Donkey Kong Original Edition as a reward to Club Members.
