The classic that launched the careers of Donkey Kong and Mario. Climb all the way to the top and save the beautiful Pauline from the paws of the giant ape in this colourful platform game.
Released in arcades in 1981, Donkey Kong became a cultural phenomenon everywhere and put Nintendo on the map among video game enthusiasts. It introduced a little hero called Jumpman which would later be better known as Mario. The Game & Watch version introduced the +Control Pad which became a standard in the industry. The NES version, which you can play here, was a launch title for the console as well as one of the most faithful adaptations of the original arcade game.
