Review For Donkey Kong Jr.

Submit a review! For this or any other game

Description: Help Donkey Kong Jr. jump and swing through 4 one screen levels and save his dad from Mario, the jailer.

The Good: Mario is the bad guy this time around. Very refreshing. I must admit controlling the little Ape is much more fun!

The Bad: Nearly as short as the original!

The Ugly: well now, theres nothing really ugly about it...

Favorite part: Finding out each levels is more fun than the next!

Least Fave Part: Beating it in a minute, and starting from square one.

The Blue Luigi
The Good: I like how Mario is bad,(I don't LIKE it, but it is unique.)

The Bad: The game is easy.(I beat it the 1st day I bought it)

The Ugly: Mario dies when you beat the game.

Favorite part: Watching the blue Snapjaws run off the rope they're on and into the water in the first level.

Least Fave Part: Nothing

The Good: Mario is the bad guy

The Bad: Nothing

The Ugly: What The heck is the bird dropping?! Eggs or poop?

Favorite part: Killing Mario for once.

Least Fave Part: (Imitating Wario's impression of Leam Galager) THAT BLOODY CARPENTER!!!

The Good: The thing I like about the game is that you could play as someone else instead of Mario all the time.

The Bad: This is STUPID!!! Mario...a bad guy? Give me a break! ARGGGH

The Ugly: D.K. is the ugly. He's just sittin' in a cage with his teeth showin' I can't stand lookin' at it!

Favorite part: My favorate part is when D.K. Jr. gets to climb two vines at the same time.

Least Fave Part: My least favorate part is when I get killed.

The Good: Better variety. Junior can do more stuff than what Mario ever could.

The Bad: Way too short. You'll pass the first level within ten minutes, and that's all there is to it.

The Ugly: When Junior catches his dad without getting crushed to death.

Favorite part: Fooling the birds with fancy ropework.

Least Fave Part: Fairly monotonous.

The Good: I like it! Mario's the bad guy.

The Bad: The Bad thing is D.K. Jr.'s low jumping ability.

The Ugly: DK's face

Favorite part: When I finally get to defeat Mario!!

Least Fave Part: When I die

Real GTX
The Good: If you ask me DK Jr. is a lot cooler than the original DK. It's fun swinging on vines! Probably easier to control than the original Donkey Kong, and bigger.

The Bad: It's hard! If you like Mario a lot, don't play this because Mario falls and dies in the end. Dumb sounds.

The Ugly: How can Mario die in the end and still continue to star in more recent games?

Favorite part: Winning the game and laughing as Mario falls to his death!

Least Fave Part: Being killed by the vine climbing animals.

Alex Monahan
The Good: Someone should buy this game because it's a classic and fun to challenge your friends for the high score. In general, I liked conquering the game in under 45 minutes.

The Bad: General elements of the game that would turn people off, in my opinion are in the second level getting stuck in the ground and getting skrewed up over the spring.

The Ugly: Mario dying at the end and appearing in later games struck me as weird or odd about the game.

Favorite part: Beating the game is my favorite specific memory of this game.

Least Fave Part: Yes, the ability to die easily.

Bowser Extreme
The Good: It's a good game. I like the last level of it

The Bad: The enemies.

The Ugly: Mario

Favorite part: Saving Donkey Kong.

Least Fave Part: See the Bad.

The Good: DK Jr. is cooler than Mario.

The Bad: The first level. I HATE IT

The Ugly: DK is ugly as hell. NO LUIGI!!!

Favorite part: Everything is cool.

Least Fave Part: No Luigi.
