Donkey Kong '94 is such a great game. It's is a shame that the VC version doesn't have the Super Gameboy features. I won't be getting this version though. I have a perfectly working original cart complete with a Super Gameboy.
I played and beat the first two worlds in Donkey Kong and wow, this is pretty fun! I never even heard of this game back in the day so finally getting to try it now is a nice experience. A lot of the time I think nostalgia is what carries a game but this is just plain fun. Glad to have bought it
I still have almost $5 in the 3DS's eshop. Is this DK 94 really that big of a deal? I don't remember hearing much about it when it was originally released.
I will admit I am having a blast with Super Mario Land! Its fairly easy, but starts becoming more challenging in world 3. Since I never owned the original Gameboy or GB color, its really cool to be able to play this games. How many worlds are there in SM Land? I noticed each world is comprised of only 3 levels instead of the typical 4.
But back to DK94....what makes this game so great that I should download it?
It's sort of like a puzzle action platformer. Each level has a key and a door you have to bring it to to unlock it. You'll have different obstacles and enemies in your way, items that let you create platforms or ladders, moving platforms like in the original Donkey Kong on NES, plus Mario himself is far more acrobatic, preforming backflips, handstands to jump higher and he just controls better overall. The game seems pretty big as well and has a high score system so you can probably replay levels later to try and beat them. For the price, it's totally worth it so far. If you're not convinced, check out some Youtube videos of the game in action.
