The Story of Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong is a groundbreaking arcade game developed by Nintendo. Released in 1981, it introduced the world to the iconic video game character, Mario, who was then known as Jumpman. The game's plot revolves around Jumpman's quest to save his girlfriend, Pauline, from the clutches of the gigantic, mischievous gorilla, Donkey Kong.

As players, your aim is to guide Jumpman through a series of challenging levels, each filled with obstacles and enemies. You must navigate platforms, climb ladders, and dodge barrels thrown by Donkey Kong himself. It requires quick reflexes, strategic thinking, and precise timing to succeed.
