This epic Gameboy game needs more love. I got it this past weekend, and just finished it. It is now my favorite game ever. It starts out with the classics, then introduces new stuff, increases fun, slowly ramps up difficulty until it is difficult at the end, then the last four stages end it perfectly. Then add in a totally awesome final-boss fight, and a humorous ending, and you've got a winner. Seriously, everyone should try finding this game. Check out the NL review: http://retro.nintendolife.com/reviews/2009/08/donkey_kong_retro

What did you all think of it?

I never did beat the end boss and the stages could be really difficult towards the end of the game.

I would love to see a straight remake for WiiWare - just enhance the graphics and sound; leave the gameplay alone... perhaps adding more stages.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

A WiiWare update would rule all.
The game is truly amazing. I'm towards the end of it now; i've played it to death over the years, but never finished it all the way through -- YET!

I never beat it; but what I can play, I enjoy a lot. Donkey Kong for the Game Boy is truly good, especially when you pop it in the Super Game Boy. :) I really need to master it some.

I used to love this game, took a while to complete though, it did have some of the best graphics and sound I experienced on the good ol' brick Gameboy.

Was everyone else's DK cart bright yellow? I used to love that as a kid.

This is good

@ Stevie, I think you are refering to the Donkey Kong Country GB cassette. That one was yellow.

I loved this game, it was pretty difficult too, but I managed to beat it. It was pretty short though. A WiiWare remake would be great.

@Stevie - No, my Donkey Kong [not Country] cart was your regular average joe gray. Still, it is fun to play a game combined with the gameplay of Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, and Super Mario Bros. 2. :)

copy that... best gb game ever!! but after awhile, the internal battery (sadly) dies and you can no longer save your levels, so you have to finish it all in one go (which I find rather daunting) this one needs to be rereleased!!

I spied it in a game shop and bought it on the spot. I got it home and was disappointed to find the save battery had died. I had to complete it in one sitting.

This is one reason why (whether it's feasible or not) the DSi needs a Virtual Console, because I'm sure as heck not going to pay Nintendo £15 to replace my battery.
