This master piece of beautiful gaming nostalgia is what makes me want to get up in the morning, though the graphics may be limited, this will still always have a part in my collection… and my heart.

Anyways, the concept is fairly simple.  Donkey Kong has kidnapped Paulline, and you Mario, must save her.  Now everything is out to get you, springs, fireballs and barrels, short and simpel, the ape wants you dead.  And you have to dodge all of the shit he throws at you to get to the top of the level, in every port except for the NES, there are 4 levels, so when you finally beat the forth level, it just starts all over again.  And the stages get slightly more challenging, with slightly more stuff out to get you.    It’s a great game, and if you ever have the chance, I higly recommend you take a shoot at it.
