Donkey Kong

I found this on After you get to the top, Donkey Kong takes the girl and goes higher, and keeps on doing this. Is he supposed to? Also, I don’t get How High Can You Get.

Games Guru: Donkey Kong continues to take Pauline higher until you defeat him and rescue her—in the girder stage in which you knock the pins out of the steel girder building and it collapses, spilling DK on his head. Sadly, the rescue is short lived. From there you return to the barrel-jumping stage, followed by the spring factory, followed by the cement factory. As I’m sure you know, you simply continue and Jumpman (Mario’s original name in this game) never really gets the girl.

(BTW, the cement factory level, my favorite, isn’t on the NES version of Donkey Kong. Bummer.)

      That’s because on the online version, they only remade 1 level.Also,online there’s no hammer and sound is slightly distorted.

  8. Have any of you ever seen the kill screen? It’s where everything ends. It’s like on stage 36 of the cement factory. In total, stage 187. What happens on the kill screen is that once you get to the middle, the game has no data left, and you just immediately die. Even if you didn’t get hit by a barrel/whatever. Even if you had some lives left. I saw this on a movie called King of Kong.

    • not really its that it reduces its timer a big mistake and sets it to seven seconds until it automatically kills you plus its the barrel level xplant

  9. the game is so easy. i have on the virtual console for wii

  10. cool game

  11. You know, for those of you who don’t have a NES, just get a Wii! You can download games like Super Mario Brothers, Super Mario 64, etc.

    This game ont eh NES is fun and I think you can unlock Bowser as a boss if you get enough points. You will just play the game like normal, only Bowser will replace Donkey Kong and the levels will be a bit harder.

  18. its dumb that “jumpman” never saves pauline. weird.

  19. DO you get the yellow pegs on level one hundred or do walk into the force shields

  20. pauline is named peach
