Why was Mario the villian?
23 January 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Donkey Kong Junior was the sequel to the 1981 arcade hit "Donkey Kong" in which like the original, you must get through each level while avoiding all the enemies you'll encounter. But this time you're playing Donkey Kong's son who must free his dad from Mario (who was known as Jumpman in Donkey Kong, and later appeared in the Super Mario Brothers games). I was a little shocked to see Mario being the villian (since I'm so used to him as the good guy)since he's not like that. This game (which has graphics that are outdated like the original game) isn't quite like as good as "Donkey Kong" but it's still worth playing.
