The Mario vs. Donkey Kong franchise is a series of titles that depicts the continuation of Mario's
long-standing rivalry with Donkey Kong
. The first game in the series, the GBA title Mario vs. Donkey Kong
, was in actuality a remake of the 1994 Game Boy edition of Donkey Kong
. The franchise is also the first to see regular appearances of Pauline
, one of the very first damsels-in-distress in video games, since her appearance in the 1994 title.
March of the Minis
Beginning with Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis
, the gameplay shifted from that of a puzzle-based platformer to a style more reminiscent of the game Lemmings
. Rather than control Mario directly, the player instead must guide Mini-Mario wind-up toys through the various stages to give chase and eventually battle with Donkey Kong.
