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.

Donkey Kong has been captured by the vicious Captain K. Rool (any relation to King K. Rool? I have no idea, but I like to think they are the same person), and Diddy Kong is now the monkey in the spotlight, this time joined by his new partner and girlfriend, Dixie Kong! This dynamic duo will now test their limits in this all new quest of monkey madness, and pirate-themed scenarios!

Like I established the previous year, I wanted to cover the entire Donkey Kong Country series, and at this point, the critically acclaimed sequel was next on the list. This game is definitely my favorite of the trilogy (although I do love all 3), so I was quite amped to take this one to the end!

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.
