Play Donkey Kong Original

This classic game first appeared at the arcades in 1981, and was the first to introduce the famous characters of Mario, Donkey Kong and Peach. Donkey Kong was developed by a Nintendo artist, Shigeru Miyamoto. Miyamoto created the entire game himself (even the music), the only help he got was with the name. He and a manager decided they'd call it "Donkey Kong" because "kong" would imply a gorilla was involved, and "donkey" was used because their Japanese-to-English dictionary translated it as "stubborn, wily, and goofy." The gameplay was a distinct step forward over other games of its time and achieved huge distribution. Both Donkey Kong and its sequel, Donkey Kong, Jr., are included in the 1988 NES compilation Donkey Kong Classics. The game story : Donkey Kong has stolen Mario's girlfriend and taken her to the top of a steel structure. Move Mario over beams and up ladders, leap over tumbling barrels, dodge lethal fireballs and jump onto fast-moving elevators, trying to rescue Mario's girlfriend from Donkey Kong. Use arrow keys to move and spacebar to shoot. This game requires the Adobe Flash plugin.
