This is a very weird sequal to one of the first groundbreaking arcade game of the 80s, Donkey Kong. Unlike its predecessers, Donkey Kong 3 is more of a shoot ‘em up rather than a platformer. This also marks the first time Mario is absent from a Donkey Kong game with the nearly forgotten Stanley the Bugman taking his place. The storyline is also a little ridiculous compared to the first two games as well. In this game, Donkey Kong is invading greenhouses for some unknown reason and summons bees and other insects to fight for him.
The gameplay is this in a nutshell: the player controls Stanley shooting insecticide at baddies and Donkey Kong. Having either Donkey Kong leaving the screen or knocking his head into a beehive is the goal of each level. There are several ways the player can lose lives. First, the usual physical contact with an enemy, and second, if all of the flowers Stanley is guarding are destroyed.
This wasn’t exactly Nintendo’s best effort, but it isn’t a terrible game either. After looking at great hits like Donkey Kong, Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros, it’s very easy to see why this game has become the obscure oddity it is today.
Hungarian translation for Donkey Kong 3.
