Haven't really played much of the arcade original, but it was one of the first games I've played on the Game Boy Advance e-Reader along with ExciteBike back when I got it in Christmas of '02. Pretty fun game. I also have Donkey Kong Clasics on the NES, which has this game and its predecessor Donkey Kong.
