GB - Donkey Kong

Description

Colloquially known as "Donkey Kong '94" in reference to its year of release, this version of Donkey Kong follows the same premise as the original game from the 1980s, with Mario trying to rescue his girlfriend Pauline from the eponymous Donkey Kong.
Besides adding over 90 additional stages to the original 4, this release introduces many new gameplay mechanics which both help and hinder Mario from reaching his goal. Some of these new elements are patterned off concepts from other Mario games including Donkey Kong Jr., Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA), and Super Mario Bros. 3. In addition, new mechanics means new glitches, which are readily used in a TAS in the interest of speed.
