Author's comments and explanations:
Donkey Kong 3 is a one-screen shooter in which the player uses a spray to drive out the mighty Donkey Kong while guarding the pot-plants from enemy insects.

This run plays Mode A as the currently published run does. Mode B increases Kong's HP and spawns more lesser enemies, which wouldn't exhibit more interesting stuff while lengthening the run that is merely 2885 frames long, which is 513 frames faster than [2175] NES Donkey Kong 3 (USA) by MESHUGGAH in 00:56.54 and 52 frames faster than mtvf1's WIP.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.1.6
  • Aims for fastest input time.
  • Allows deaths to save time.
  • Manipulates luck.


Just one more death to skip the scoring in Stage 2. The frame rules cannot be helped.

Other comments

Thanks to MESHUGGAH and mtvf1 for their published run and WIP, respectively. Additionally thanks to mtvf1 for the encode.
