glockstararmani's Donkey Kong (Arcade) review

The King of Kong

Glockstar Armani presents this game with a *GLOCKIE* award for:


It's strange: this game is kind of like a reverse-crossover. It gave us Mario, Peach, and DK before we had games featuring Mario, Peach, and DK. So, if this is the real deal, does that mean that everything else that came after is nothing but a cheap spin-off?!!?!?! Because I'd be totally cool with that.

This is a game about saving a girl from a monkey at a construction site. Also, there's barrels. That's all I'm gonna say. If you're reading reviews on this site and you haven't played this yet, then the terrorists have already won. But while you're online, check out the documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters". It's quite possibly the most entertaining piece of non-fiction you'll ever see, especially if you're an avid gamer.

Oh, and let's put Donkey Kong down for the 50 dollar bill.

The protagonist Mario (called Jumpman at the time) has to save his girlfriend Pauline, who has been kidnapped by the giant ape Donkey Kong and carried up a building under construction. A...
