Donkey Kong, a venerable classic known to many and the introduction to two very well known characters in Gaming History, Donkey Kong and Mario. As the classic gamers amongst us will likely already know, this game is only 4 screens long. Sounds a little short for an LP video, doesn't it? Well, I think it needs to be done anyway. I've spent years of my life practicing and perfecting these four screens and damned if I'm not going to make use of my encyclopedic knowledge of how to jump over barrels being thrown at me by a giant fucking monkey that took my woman.

This will be a video LP, as this short but awesome game truly needs to be seen in action to be properly experienced. It may take me many videos as it is notoriously difficult, but I'm sure I'll be able to make it with minimal pain involved. Also, I'm playing this on the Gameboy as you can tell from the box up above, so the graphics are a little bit improved over the originals. Let's go show that overgrown ape who's boss!
