I think this is a game that needs to get more exposure. It was a fantastic update to the classic Donkey Kong Formula, with added mechanics, and a fresh take on the formula. It’s too bad that This game did not have a true follow up. Yes Mario vs donkey kong are fun, but I would love more Donkey Kong 94 style games,

@Themagusx1 Funny timing seeing this thread made, I was thinking about this game the other day. My dad had a copy of it to play on his Game Boy, and I played it too. It was a lot of fun, I don't even think it even got re-released on the 3DS virtual console, only the NES version of the classic Donkey Kong game (Donkey Kong Land and Country if you want to count them).

It did. Here it is on Nintendo's site.

@MarioLover92 Whoa, not only do I stand corrected, this went right onto the 3DS wish list. Now I have an excuse to grab an eShop card. Thanks for the heads up!

@Sunsy Anytime, bud. I have it on my 3DS as well, I remember getting it around the time it came out after I lost my original cart years ago. If only it had the Super Game Boy enhancements though - but I'm happy to have that game back!

@Sunsy Ih that’s cool and it sounds like a good memory to share with your dad. Oh yeah I am playing it on the virtual console as well on the 3DS. It’s aged really well, and I wonder if some of the mechanics in this game were lifted for Mario 64.?

@MarioLover92 It was the launch game for the super game boy, so the only enhancement I recall it getting is that one of the bordersfor the game was the donkey Kong arcade border. I am glad you also enjoy it

@Themagusx1 Yes you're correct, there's also full color on the SGB and there's a voice clip from Pauline shouting for help. That backflip you can do is quite similar to the side somersault in Super Mario 64 as well.

I originally didn't know about this game for a long time until I stumbled across a playthrough someone did. I saw that it had come out on 3DS Virtual console but never properly looked at it prior to the playthrough, but I certainly brought it as soon as I had another look following the video I watched. I had known about Mario vs Donkey Kong prior to it, so I was quite surprised by how many of the mechanics came from this particular game.

I feel like a proper sequel to DK94 would be perfect as a budget release on eShop. I wouldn't be opposed to a full-priced retail game, but I don't think Nintendo would be willing to make a full fledged game based around the same mechanics.

Signature, huh? Where do I sign?

@MarioLover92 In Japan, Tetris 2 (Tetris Flash) was also released as a SGB launch game. Though I think that one added a border and a custom palette only VERY SLIGHTLY different than the default one.

I had only in the last few years learned from a collector that Nintendo did discreetly release the SGB "enhanced" version in America as a revision. (I know the copy I had as a kid was the pre-SGB version, there's only a very slight label difference to tell them)

@MarioLover92 I think the Super Game Boy enhancements were what helped me remember it. I remember the colors made this one feel a little bit like a SNES game at times, even if it wasn't 16-bit title.

@Themagusx1 Yeah, I remember he had a Game Boy with this one and Space Invaders. Always dug how this one was more than just four levels. I need to download this one, never knew until last night it released since I don't recall any trailer or advertising it was on 3DS.

@Sunsy oh yeah for sure. I don’t think Nintendo was really any good at advertising VC games and there are games that I did not know were on VC. That space invaders was pretty neat on Super Gameboy.

@MS7000 Agreed and I think the price range should be between 9.99-7.99 for it.(I am in the States so yeah)

@Themagusx1 They should first start with emulating Super Game Boy, I´ll be using BSNES until that time arrives.
Great game as a kid I was kind annoying, my baby brother couldn´t beat the arcade part of the game and I kept deleting the save files. Completing this game takes some skill, just finishing it is manageable. Top 50 G.O.A.T. material.

@CactusMan Oh yeah for sure I ageee, it would be super cool to have the borders and things like that. If you could choose five gb games for launch on switch online, what would your five be?

@Themagusx1
1) Another Bible (If translated in English)
2) Donkey Kong ´94
3) Dragon Warrior Monsters
4) Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters
5) Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman!
This is a most interesting subject.

@CactusMan Those are great choices. Man Wario blast is so much, now add online or wireless connectivity and that will be great. Hmmm mine, I am trying to come up with a list.
