Donkey Kong Country was a huge success on the Super Nintendo. However, Cranky Kong was a bit unconvinced on how well it did, saying that the only reason it sold well was due to the high quality graphics at the time. To counter this, DK and Diddy once again go on another quest, this time on the Game Boy, to show that graphics aren’t everything and that Donkey Kong is just a fun series in general.

Here’s the thing about computer repairs; sometimes it takes more than just one Game Boy project to last the entirety of the repair duration. So after Metroid II was completed, I went to another Game Boy game that I had yet to cover and this time it was Donkey Kong Land. Although not as amazing as the Country games, it was still very interesting to check these games out.

Nearing the end of the N64’s life-span, Rareware was often asked when Donkey Kong Country was going to make its glorious reappearance. Although the series never made a true comeback until the Nintendo Wii, this was Rare’s answer for the Nintendo 64. King K. Rool is back and once to make another run at DK’s Banana Hoard, also capturing some of his friends as well. This does not please the big ape, as he ventures forth to rescue his friends and reclaim his stash!

This was the sixth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The videos for the old project are still available for viewing on my channel, but there is no longer a playlist associated with that version.

Donkey Kong 64 was the first “true” Let’s Play I did on my channel, but the 2010 version of me wasn’t completely satisfied with the results of that project, so I decided to go for a reboot of the game and do it more justice. I feel like my attempts were more than just satisfactory, as my replay of the game turned out to be one of my biggest and best projects yet, alongside The Simpsons: Hit and Run.

The rivalry of Mario and Donkey Kong was a classic match-up, but until this game came along, Mario was the only one who really made a name for himself in the platforming genre. Now it’s Donkey Kong’s turn, and when a giant reptile King steals his banana hoard, the big ape, and his chimpy companion Diddy Kong, will go on an amazing adventure to retrieve his lost bananas.

Originally, this project was the result of a three-person collaboration between MegaFreak400, ShadowMarioXLI, and myself, where each of us would cover one game of the Donkey Kong Country series. Little did they know, this was my master plan to start covering the entire Donkey Kong Country franchise, and what better way to cover it than to start with the first game. Although I generally prefer the Mario series, the DKC trilogy is no doubt a masterpiece of its time, being a true symbol of what Rareware has the capability to produce in the gaming department.
