Overview: In Donkey Kong Classics, play both sides in the war that Donkey Kong and Mario both take part in. First play as the little guy, Mario, that is trying to save his girlfriend, Pauline. Then play as Donkey Kong Jr. and try to save your father, Donkey Kong, from Mario, the same man that he was fighting against in the first place. Donkey Kong Classics is twice the game for the same price, now that's a good deal!
In Donkey Kong, you assume the role of Mario, a carpenter. While working, the big ape known as Donkey Kong captures Pauline, and you must save her!
In Donkey Kong Jr., Mario captures Donkey Kong. You take the role of Donkey Kong's son, Junior. Only he can save good ol' dad from the clutches of Mario.
Directions: In Donkey Kong, you must avoid Donkey Kong's barrels and other obstacles. You might want to grab the hammer to smash barrels and baddies with. Grab the items, like the purse, to gain bonus points. Reach Pauline to advance.
In Donkey Kong Junior, you have the same rules as Donkey Kong, but this time, you avoid red and blue chompers, and climb vines instead of ladders. Reach Donkey Kong to advance to the next level.
