Game Blog / 25th Anniversary of Donkey Kong for the Game Boy!
« Last post by David on June 20, 2019, 12:52:52 PM »
Twenty-five years ago, Donkey Kong was released on the Game Boy.  This was no mere port of the arcade original: while the first four stages feel likely mildly updated versions of the arcade game, the next 96 leave the arcade game far behind.  Save Pauline from Donkey Kong while guiding Mario through action puzzle stages featuring switches, swimming, hammers, springs, locked doors, and even Donkey Kong Jr.!  The game feels like a mix of Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Super Mario Bros. 2: the arcade mechanics return, mixed with Mario's ability to pluck and toss enemies at each other!

Donkey Kong for the Game Boy is one of the best Mario games ever made, featuring tight gameplay and great music.  It was also the first game to feature Mario's triple jump, Donkey Kong's tie, and Pauline's new look.  If you'd like to try it out, it's currently available on the 3DS eShop -- although if you track down a copy of the original cartridge and play it on the Super Game Boy, you'll get enhanced graphics and a special version of the game's final song!

WTMK will be featuring music from Donkey Kong for the Game Boy throughout the next week.  Tune in today!

Reviving this would require providing something other forms of social media don't already. Moreover it helps if the nucleus of a community is less mainstream than Super Mario; hence why lesser exposed and/or regarded works are labled "cult." Back when this site was active and people tried to steer the conversations towards more insular (to put it diplomatically) ends, it seemed to me it'd be more productive to join a community centered on those and ask if there were any Mario fans around rather than vice-versa like people where doing.

Mario alone is nothing to center a relationship around, especially if confines aren't kept and enforced. They weren't so people drifted off.

I infrequently do get the impulse to revist this forum because it was the first online community I ever engaged with. To be perfectly honest it's also one of the first places I really tried to earnestly socialize... and the results were naturally embarrassing. Some of what I said hang on me like the chain links of Jacob Marley. Some I still stand by, however, even if my approach was flawed; the principles in general are still very much resolute.

From gleaning the last few posts, even back then I was much to old to communicate with many of you. Holy crap, most forums have a 13 age minimum policy.

I don't recall when I joined.  The forums date is wrong though since it was revamped and the dates didn't carry.  Regardless, I see on the 'new' forum I still average greater than one post per day. 

As stated, the TMK site is very usable, but the forum is fairly dead.  How can we revive it?
