Donkey Kong is an arcade platformer created by Shigeru Miyamoto when he was tasked with converting the arcade game Radar Scope, a game that did poorly, into something that was more fun. In Donkey Kong the main character Jumpman, who would later be known as Mario, needs to climb a series of construction themed levels on his way up to rescue his girlfriend Pauline. Donkey Kong started out on the Arcade and has seen ports on the Game & Watch, NES, Atari 2600 and a ton of other systems.

In season two of Cheerful Ghost Radio we are doing bite-sized NES Classic review episodes. We want to make you all part of these episodes, so head over to the events section and join in the event for next month's NES Classic review, Punch Out!

While we have you here: what kind of games from the NES Classic and SNES Classic would you like to hear us review? Would you prefer the SNES era over the NES era? If you have suggestions, let us know in the comments.

Just a funny aside, I was watching a review of Ready Player One the other day on YouTube, and one of the YouTubers referred to her first game she was really into as "Donkey Kong," but after talking more, it was clear she was actually referring to Donkey Kong Country.

Kids these days... lol

You think that’s weird, I know someone whose favorite game when he was a kid was God of War 3. We’re getting old!

Heh. One fun thing in DKC is that Cranky Kong is actual Donkey from the original game and Donkey is actually his son.
