Okay ... okay... I get it now. This version of DONKEY KONG is NOT THE ARCADE version - it's a port of the NES version for that home system back in the day. So that is why the elusive 4th level seen in the arcades is not here. DONKEY KONG is a great game even at 3 levels, but consider that a previous GAME BOY edition had the cement/pie factory and 96 ADDITIONAL LEVELS AS WELL!
I'm still holding on to my $5 e-reader version as well as my e-reader versions of DONKEY KONG JR and DONKEY KONG 3! Why couldn't all 3 of these games been put into this cart? RETRO gaming is wonderful, but not when you feel cheated somehow. I suggest the true NES classics like SUPER MARIO BROS or LEGEND OF ZELDA! There's more bang for your buck!

DONKEY KONG is believe it or not, one of the most classic games ever made and with good reason. It has nice fun gameplay but it won't really keep you busy for a while. First released in the Arcade and then the NES it is a grand classic that most gamers might find appealing.
Unfortunately this is the "Classic NES Series" and not the "Classic Arcade Series". Donkey Kong on the original NES only had three levels. Once you completed the third stage and saved Pauline the game started from Level One only harder. But the Arcade Version had four levels. The fourth level was a Pie Factory but from the NES version it's missing and sadly that means in the GBA version it is also missing.
The graphics look the same as they did in the early 80's. This is nice although as with all the other classic games some things had to be made smaller or squashed down to fit your GBA screen. It's barely noticeable in this at least.
The other problem with Donkey Kong is simply the fact that its been released other times as well. Animal Crossing has this exact version, and there's an E-Reader as well (although that's Donkey Kong Jr.). Also, you can find a version for the Gameboy (released previously in 1994).
So while Donkey Kong really is a Classic game is it really worth fishing out 20 dollars? My answer, no. Save your money and buy a different classic. Donkey Kong is grand but there isn't enough in this game to make a gamer want to buy it.

The one star I gave this product is a negative one because this game is missing one level --- the "pie factory" level. And let's face it, making it to each new level until finally reaching the final pie level was exciting. But for whatever reason Nintendo has left the final level out of the game making this yet another incomplete console version of the arcade classic. You would think Nintendo, the company the originally made the arcade Donkey Kong, could create a faithful replica of the arcade classic for it's own console platforms, but I guess not. Nintendo needs to get its act together.

Why should you go out and use your money on this when the Donkey Kong 64 video game already has the arcade version? The Pie Factory level isn't in the game, but you can play it whenever you want (Without using 25 cents to play it on an arcade) with the missing level if you get DK64.

The only cost is to make it to the Frantic Factory level and unlock Donkey's Gorilla Grab. Then you can play it with all four levels for free!

Both games cost about the same, but DK64 gives you the whole game with a gigantic Banjo-Kazooie-like adventure for the same cost. Plus, beating Donkey Kong in DK64 unlocks a very important item in the game (Nintendo Coin).

I don't know why Nintendo even made this game, but it would've made more sense to just use Donkey Kong Jr. instead.

Okay okay ... I LOVE DONKEY KONG. It takes me back to a time when Mario was known only as "JUMPMAN" and Donkey Kong ruled the arcade with that other strangely named pizza slice the Pac-MAN. It was originally called MONKEY KONG, but a misprint or typo became the signature title DONKEY KONG. You try to save the fair damsel in distress from a barrel and fire throwing Monkey - armed only occasionally with a hammer and well-timed jumps. Simple and addictive. Back when video games were brightly colored easy to learn, and usually lasted 2 minutes. The game itself deserves a hearty five stars.
Ah ... but heres the rub. An e-reader version of this was released just last year at a price of ... $6. This cart which is still missing the elusive PIE FACTORY is still priced 3 times as high! What? Couldn't they have put 5 or 6 classic games, or like ACTIVISION put on over 30 games from its 2600 heyday? I love the idea of RETRO gaming - I own all the old titles in some form. They are great! But one game at $18 or $19 seems a little steep for a game that could be held on 5 trading cards. Hmmmm! Makes me want to throw a barrel at somebody.

This is the original donkey kong game that came out in the 80's except unfortuanly it is missing the pie factory.When you get to the last level and complete it(there is only 3 levels)you just start over until your killed.I can't wait to get this game because I use to play donkey kong all the time on my then trs 80 computer.I would still welcome a console version xbox or ps2 complete with the original game and with the pie factory.It would have to be 2d similar to the original pitfall game that is on the pitfall xbox and ps2 game.The new pitfall which is in 3-d and has nothing to do with the original one makes the old pitfall game look like yesterdays technology but I wouldn't mind a 2d donkey kong for xbox.If you like the original donkey kong you should buy this.Maybe a better version with the pie factory will come out later.
