Got a high score of over 185,000. I'm liking this game more and more everyday I got to level 14 or 15, not sure. It's very hard to pass levels past 11.I want to get to 18 just to say I've played all the game has to throw at me. Hopefully i don't get burnt out on it before then. That's what happened with Mario Bros. Got a score of 225,000 and have not played much scinse. I never even got to where the ice falls. But I just can't play it anymore for now.

After beating super mario bros for the first time scince buying it for vc. I went through and beat it on hard mode. I never did on NES as a child. Mainly beacause you couldn't save. After that, and having already beat smb3 and smb2 in the weeks previous. I was ready for a new challenge. I had never heard of this, so I looked into it. Was amazed it was held back from America and we got smb2 instead.Especially as it was made as a game for people who had mastered smb.I have only played a little as i bought $50 in points that day and spent them all. I have beaten the first world, but not spent much time on the second yet. I know I'm in for a world of pain when I start playing it as my primary game. But having mastered SMB, SMB2, and SMB3, I'm so glad there's a game to play that I don't know from years of repeat playing. I always wished smb4 would've come out, and now It's as good as if it did.

Great game. I never passed the 2nd guy on the special circuit in th 90's. I bought this a few months ago on vc and got back to the special. (with a little practice and relearning) It felt so good to fianally beat it all. Even now when i replay it I'll lose to nick once or twice sometimes. Great game! Will replay it for years to come.

I bought this game as I love anything old school. Was a little dissapointed I had to spend 800 points on it. I'm playing more and more now. I just broke 2000 point yesterday. It was hard and I'm sure I'll be playing many times to break 3000. This is the best score bassed game I've gotten hooked on in a while. I was addicted to mario bros a few months ago, but got burnt. I'm playing a lot of dk3 and dkjr, but this is my favorite.

I love old games and this is no diffeent. Nintendo should have made it with all four levels. But they had a knack for ruining classics. Case and point: Pac man. I bought this for 500 points as well. How dissapointed I was to see what they did to that game. Luckily I was given a ps2 game with 14 classics two of which were Pac man and ms. pac man.The one thing I don't like about DK is if you stop on the top of level one; you can jump barrels over and over, running up the score, before climbing the last ladder. This took the beating my score asspect away. But I'll still run through all three levels once in a while. Am really into dk3 and dkjr right now. Great games.

Just really played fo the first time scinse I bought it. I got to round 11. It got harder after round 8. A lot more bugs coming at you. Does the game end at level 18? Or is it like Mario Bros. that goes to phase 99? A lot of people saying there are 18 Levels. Just wondeing if it starts over, or just doesn't get harder. Not the best game in the world. But I'll play it from time to time. Also does anyone know why dk2 the return of jumpman isn't on wii vc?
