RE: [ES-EN] A Great Platform Game: Donkey Kong Country SNES 1994

in Hive Gaming11 months ago (edited)

This Donkey Kong Country video-game felt like a hybrid of Mario and Sonic in that it can be fast like Sonic at times but also sophisticated like Mario. I turned nine in 1994 and Donkey Kong was a fun game to play.

I knew about Donkey Kong from the 1980s games where Mario tries to save Peach from the giant ape. So, there were commercials for Donkey Kong Country in 1994. It was exciting. We started playing it. The game sort of reminded me of Super Mario World which came out on the Super Nintendo.

Mario World had Yoshi and a few different things for Mario but Donkey Kong Country had a rhino, train carts, etc. In some ways, Donkey Kong had a wider variety of things you could do plus it was 2 players on top of that.


I remember the rhinoceros, ostrich many allies that we can use in this game, in addition to the different Mario games this is one of the platform genre that starts a very important saga for the Nintendo company a real gem in video games.

That reminds me, around 1994 or after that, for the Super Nintendo, another exciting game was Mario RPG which was the precursor to what they called in future games Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Wii, etc. I was excited for Mario RPG and then later on I really enjoyed Paper Mario which is similar to Mario RPG.
