"Great for the E-Reader. Near Perfect!"

This is the classic game of Donkey Kong remade for the E-Reader. Works just as well, and the price is good too. So go get your girl back, jumpman/mario!

[Graphics]

8/10

Now note, this game IS from the 80s, just but onto the E-Reader system, but even for then that graphics had some minor flaws, with me taking note that this is 8-bit graphics. Still not the greatest, but good.

[Gameplay]

9/10

The classic donkey kong ladder climbing, with Mario jumping past the barrels and getting to the monkey who stole his girl. Controlling is a lot easier on the gameboy, with the d-pad and A button, easily reachable. Easy to master. Small area to work with, but not much complaint on that. The hammer is nice to control too. Though with the whole E-Reader card system, some nice features are missing out too.

[Price]

8/10

The game only cost (as all the other E-Reader games cost) $5 US. That's a good price for this game, especially when the E-Reader came out. Now there you can get it on the Wii for 500 points ($5 US) and probably some other, cheaper, emulators. But it still beats the buying it from the Classic NES series, by price. They probably updated it a bit. Probably the best game to buy for E-Reader next to golf, making useful for things other then pokemon berries :P

[Replaying]

8/10

Of course this game is fun to replay over and over, you just can't keep record of your scores with the E-Reader. Still fun to replay. Pretty short, so easier to replay.

[Length]

6/10

It's a the same as a classic NES game, so it really isn't going to be long. Still, it's only a few levels, not long enough. But on the E-Reader, you aren't likely going to keep it on a long time. Still, it's average time.

[Sound]

6/10

Average sound, some catchy music, not the greatest though. Do I need to say more? A bunch of sounds together though, not the best combination.

Overall:

This Emulation for the E-Reader of the classic NES game, Donkey Kong, gets a 7/10. It's a good game, I would recommend you to buy it four years ago, not really now though. E-Reader didn't do so good, sadly enough.
