Donkey Kong ’94 Cheats & Cheat Codes for Game Boy

It seems like everyone forgets that without Donkey Kong, we would have no Mario. Donkey Kong ’94 is a platformer released by Nintendo and Pax Softnica. It is based on the original 1981 arcade game and its sequel. This was the first Game Boy title designed with the Super Game Boy in mind. The game was received well and was even the top-selling Game Boy game for a few months in the United Kingdom. As the years went on, the game continued to be praised, making it one of the most talked about Game Boy games of all time.

The Premise Of Donkey Kong ’94

Donkey Kong ’94 is like 3 games in one. It features gameplay mechanics from Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Super Mario Bros. 2. It is almost more like a compilation game than a game of its own. It starts with some levels from the original arcade version of Donkey Kong before transitioning to an entirely new game mechanic. Every four levels after the first four is a level that requires reaching Pauline as Mario or defeating Donkey Kong. As the game progresses, new traps are implemented to keep the gameplay fresh.

The Main Characters Of Donkey Kong ’94

Mario – The main character of the game as well as the star of his franchise.

Donkey Kong – The antagonist of Donkey Kong ’94 and a fictional gorilla created by Shigeru Miyamoto.
