dsplayer1010's Donkey Kong (Nintendo Entertainment System) review

Where is the other level?

Donkey Kong is a port of the original arcade game. There is one difference, though. It is missing one level from the original. This greatly hurts the game's value.

There are three levels in the game. Two of them have you climbing up to where Princess Pauline, (Thats right, Peach isn't in this game,) is. The other one has you running over all the yellow blocks, making the tower collapse. On these levels you can also defeat enemies and collect some of Pauline's items for more points. Once you get through these three levels, you go through them again. You can spend many hours improving on your high score.

The game's soundtrack is classic. The game's graphics were good for its time too. In conclusion, Donkey Kong is definately a classic. Its a shame that Nintendo didn't include the other level.
