Donkey Kong Country was a fun and popular platformer for the SNES, but not everyone thought it was great. Some people (possibly Mega Drive / Genesis owners) said the game was in fact quite poor and any fans were deluded fools drawn to it for reasons other...

IIRC, one of my classmates back in elementary school had this game for the Game Boy.
The original SNES game is still topnotch, though the Game Boy Color port is somewhat decent.

I played the crap out of this game back in ze day. Probably got more enjoyment out of it than I did with the SNES games, even though it's obviously not as strong. But hey, portable!

Just to avoid confusion ('cause we don't want that), I only played the SNES original and Game Boy Color port. I don't think I ever played the original Game Boy vesrion of the game; I do have somewhat of a recollection of one of my classmates having it, but I'm not sure.
