For team Sonic, Dr Robotnik announces that he has finally completed his ultimate weapons and in 3 days will bring the world to itís knees. You naturally have to save the day.

DONKEY KONG COUNTRY

Super Nintendo Pal 1994

The classic title from Rare for Nintendo. At the time the graphics in the game were state of the art despite being based on the aging 16-Bit Super NES.

Rare used a technique of using images rendered on Silicon Graphics machines and using them as sprites in the game. Coupled with great game play the game became a massive hit.

Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong set about searching the island for their missing collection of bananas. King K. Rool, an evil crocodile with an army of minions had stolen the family's collection, an offense that merited the punishment of having his head jumped on by a 200-pound gorilla.

This game is up there with the great 2D platformers ever. You can throw barrels, ride mine carts, find helper animals and there are plenty of secrets to find. The game can be played as a single player, 2 player co-op or 2 player contest.

After this game was 2 more Donkey Kong Country titles appeared on the SNES and this game has recently been released for Gameboy Advance.
