King K. Rool has stolen Donkey Kong's banana stash, and Donkey Kong needs your help to get them back. In search of K. Rool, the Kremling horde impedes your progress. Kremlings, crocodile-like creatures, include Kritters (they succumb to a simple jump on the head), Krushas (they are virtually indestructible), and others. There are also other enemies that block your path, such as beavers, snakes, vultures. Leading them are dastardly bosses, including Very Gnawty, Necky, Queen B., and Dumb Drum, and they all bar the way with their own special blend of villainy.
Add my review
Donkey Kong is joined by Diddy Kong: these two primates differ significantly. For example, Donkey Kong is generally stronger; he can destroy most enemies with a single jump and can lift barrels straight over his head to throw them farther. On the other hand, Diddy is faster and not as strong as Donkey; he can run really fast and do cartwheels. Diddy carries barrels in front of him, creating a shield against frontal attacks.
The game is split into different worlds, which are split into different levels. Each level contains bonus areas, where one can collect bananas, medallions, and lives. At the end of each world is a boss, which is usually a larger version of a minor enemy.
A brilliant masterpiece that pushed boundaries
By Jack Anderson on May 28, 2018
Donkey Kong Country was released in 1994 and was a true masterpiece that pushed the boundaries of videogames at the time.
Released on the Super Nintendo, the game pushed the boundaries of that console and introduced 3D like characters on a 16 bit console. You can see it right from the start. The old guy is playing an old record in an environment that ressembles the one from the old Donkey Kong on NES. But then, Donkey Kong appears from above and pushes him with a rock like music system!
Then, the game starts and the great thing about this game is that you literally run throughout the levels.
One of the most important aspect of this game is the music. The soundtrack of Donkey Kong Country is truly a character on its own.
An outstanding game. I give it 10 out of 10.
