'Donkey Kong Country' (GBA) - Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 20, 2003 @ 6:24 p.m. PDT

The first Donkey Kong game on the Game Boy Advance is one of the best side-scrolling games of all time, updated from the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), with all-new features! King K. Rool and his Kremlings have stolen Donkey Kong's banana hoard, and now it's up to Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong to get it back. With help from Cranky Kong, Candy Kong and Funky Kong (not to mention a bunch of animal friends), the two simian heroes will have to explore every inch of the island, from the treetops of the Kongo Jungle to the icy cliffs of Gorilla Glacier.


  • Switch between the strong but slow Donkey Kong and the smaller, quicker Diddy Kong while battling hordes of Kremlings in search of the lost banana hoard.
  • Use all your platforming skills as you swing on vines, rocket out of Barrel Cannons, navigate treacherous mine cart obstacle courses, ride animal pals like Rambi the Rhino, and fight massive bosses.
  • Challenge yourself in the new Score-Attack mode and rack up points while you cruise through the levels.
  • Enjoy the many additions to the original SNES game, such as the new multi-player mini-games, a save-anywhere feature, stat screens that chart progress, and snapshots of character art that you can collect as you play.
  • Link up with a pal's Game Pak and play new mini-games, like Funky's Fishing and Candy's Dance Studio.
