Product description

Product Description

Adapted from the hit Super Nintendo-title of a few years back, Donkey Kong Country is now rolling its way onto the Game Boy Color. Gamers play as both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong in this game, and the objective is to reclaim the cache of delicious, nutritious bananas from the mean, thieving Kremlins. Not only can you roll through your challengers, but you've also got that trusty Kong-family weapon--the barrel--to help knock them out of your way. The characters can run, jump and swim through expanded versions of the original levels and explore bonus levels that are exclusive to this version of the game. With the separately sold Game Link cable, you can team up on the baddies with a friend and his or her copy of the game.

Amazon.co.uk Review

To most people the Game Boy is something that small kids play Pokemon on, and maybe the odd Mario game. Well Nintendo plan to change all that. Yes of course there are a host of adult games, such as Perfect Dark and Tomb Raider, but finally one has come along that both adults and kids will like.

Donkey Kong has always been a word that goes hand in hand with Nintendo, whether it was through the first Game and Watch titles or the SNES, or even the N64 it's nice to see that finally the big monkey has made its way on to the Game Boy.

Donkey Kong Countryis an almost direct port from the SNES and follows the lines of a simple platform game, and because of its simplicity, works wonderfully well on the Game Boy Color. With bright colours, a fun soundtrack and the great task of collecting as many bananas as possible, it will have you chuckling away in no time. Combine this with some extra bonus features, such as shooting ranges and fishing ponds, and you've got a game that has all-round appeal.

Without sounding too over the top, this is a great game, and a game that if you have a Game Boy you shouldn't be without... now, where's that final Banana. --Stuart Miles

When I first bought my Game Boy Advance this game was one of my first purchases. I only bought it because of the reputation the Super Nintendo games earned, I was not to be dissapointed. This has to be the best looking Game Boy Colour game ever released and could easily pass as an Advance game.

I received this game as a Christmas present and I'm still playing it. It varies in difficulty in parts but after a few practices usually able to get past the challenge.
as well as a main game it also offers two subsidiary games, funky fishing and crosshairs. If you don't have time to get involved in the full platform game then you can play one of these games. A game is not just for Christmas and I don't think this one is!

This game is already a classic but now it can be played on the move. The adventure mode is mostly great but sometimes is just too demanding. Jumps have to be timed absolutely perfectly over and over again. Also, the big fat kremlings are annoying. However, the graphics are great and the levels do vary very much in themes and backgrounds. The subgames are a worthwhile addition. The fishing subgame is brilliant - better than tetris! Two characters is a good idea as they have different attacks and throwing trajectories. Overall this is as good as you get on the colour game boy. If it had been new it would have got a fifth star.

Got this as an Xmas gift for my husband (as he found his old game boy). He loves it. The Service was great too!
