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 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.

feos: Judging...
feos: As it was found out, this game needs a few more levels to be beaten to be considered completed by our rules, because as it is right now, not all the unique content has been shown, and that's required for games that have no ending.
At first I planned to set it to delayed, because appending just a few extra levels is not going to change the feedback of this movie. But recently we made the research requirements for ending-less games stricter, and depending on where unique content stops appearing in this game, the route might change.
Since the queue is overly bloated lately, I decided to reject this movie. When the author is ready to work on a more complete version, we can discuss the ending point accordingly, before a new submission is made, to prevent another possible rejection. I will be helping with research then.

feos: Unrejected per rule update.
feos: Clearing the branch since it's just a difficulty mode, and accepting over [2175] NES Donkey Kong 3 by MESHUGGAH in 00:56.54.
