Mario is the bad guy?
21 September 2001 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

The sequel to the classic 1981 game, Donkey Kong, is like the first as far as format is concerned. Battle your way through a stage, getting past all the obstacles to the end. However, this time, you play Donkey Kong Junior and go against Mario to set Donkey Kong free. It's rather odd having a game where Mario is the adversary and not the hero. Oh well. It's not as good as the original, but this game is still a lot of fun, despite the out of date graphics. Thumbs up.
