One of Nintendo’s first and most original game ever made is Donkey Kong for the NES, arcade. It had Mario having to save the princess from a Huge Ape named Donkey Kong. You were Mario, who had to save the princess from a Huge Ape named Donkey Kong and you had to climb ladders, go up hill and dodge barrels that Donkey Kong was throwing down at you.


This is one of the best games that I had ever played because for it's time it was the best. Challenging levels and many things to dodge and secrets that you had to find out. I enjoyed the music somewhat but I can understand how it isn't that great because it was such a long time ago. It added mood and a sense of emotion to the game.
The game play is absolutely great and the replay value is also great because the game is very addicting. Trying to see how far into the game that you could make it and each time making it a little farther to where you were able to beat. I have to admit that I never beat the game myself but I played it enough times to say that it is one of the greatest games ever made and that it will be treasured for decades to come. Thank You.
