Donkey Kong Arcade Return Donkey Kong Arcade Return

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Excellent Remake

I may sound a little biased in reviewing this since Donkey Kong is my favorite retro game out there, but I had a lot of fun with this! Everything seems spot on with this remake. Almost feels like I'm playing a Donkey Kong cabinet at my local arcade! The medals are great for replay value. Although most are easy, besides the insane million point medal, it brings fresh life into this classic. I also felt the continue system is a nice touch. I enjoy my stats so keeping track of the barrels I've jumped and enemies I've smashed with the hammer is enjoyable to me. Also being able to continue from the round you died at is great for casual play. I myself could never get to round 20 in one go, so having the option to work on each round is very motivating to me. This is a great remake of a classic with a few fun and motivating additions. I'll be coming back to this time and time again.

Thanks for the review! I know the save function and counters would be usefull to players ;) I'm very glad you liked the game, and the discrete additions I gave it. Keep playing and try to win that million point medal! ;)

Addicting

I didn't expect to have as much fun with this. It's a good time killer. A simple point and shoot style of game play which may not be the most immersive experience, but certainly an enjoyable one. Twenty levels is a good variety, but the range of different and more challenging levels falls short much sooner than that. There are tougher levels to be played, but nothing truly challenging from one level to the next. I felt if the levels kept getting progressively tougher it would have added to the longevity of the game. The music fits well into the jungle like atmosphere, but it did get repetitive rather quickly. After fifteen or so minutes it just became noise in the background. More of the same styled music would prevent this. Over all a nice, easy to pick up game that unfortunately doesn't try very hard to keep the player entertained. Definitely worth a look though.

Make more!

Definitely my favorite game on Newgrounds hands down. I would have given it a 10 but there were too many flaws with the game play but I'll get to that later. The graphics were great, very colorful. The songs were awesome! I pretty much had fun with all of them for quite some time. Back to the game play. It was great fun and very well done, but some things needed to be better. First of all there really wasn't a penalty for pressing the buttons too early. People could just rapidly tap the keys and get 100% on the note streak. The note detection wasn't perfect. I sometimes hit the not while it was at the end of the bar, still in it, but it counted as a miss. I also thought better animation with the stick figure would have been cool. Have him go along with the melody of the song and not just have him jamming the whole way through. Over all this game was great. I'm going to go back and play it right now! Thank you so much for making this, please make more!

Good fun

Great game. The graphics were great. Very colorful and smooth. I really thought the backgrounds were unique and fun. The music was great. I thought this type of music was perfect for a game like this. I'm glad you used different songs for each level and not just use the same one over and over again. The game play was good, very fun and I actually enjoyed going back to the levels and beating my old score. I managed to get all gold medals for each level. The controls worked well and were easy to pick up. The difficulty wasn't all that challenging. After level 2 I had to go over every level once just to get down a strategy, but by my second play through it was cake. I hope you make another game with more challenging levels. Good job on this game I really enjoyed it!

Fun

I enjoyed this game. The game play was good. A simple concept but it was enjoyable. The difficulty was just right. The graphics were good were good and the sound effect were perfect. Some music in the background would have been a good idea. Over all this game was good. Very simple, but fun. Keep up the good work.

Excellent

Possibly the best fighting game I have played here on Newgrounds. The graphics were awesome, I don't know why people complain about 2-D but it's just perfect for games like this. I thought the audio was great. It reminded me of any old school fighting game. The game play was fun, although it was very difficult. I got owned fighting the first opponent! The variety of characters definitely added a lot of replay value to this game. The controls worked fine, but it took awhile to get used to them. Great job on this game.

Nice collab

I haven't played many game collaborations before, but this one definitely makes me want to play more! First of all the most important thing is the game play, and this delivers. Even though I've played a lot of these types of games before, I still had a lot of fun with this one. It had good variety too, a lot of different mazes to have fun with. I had some trouble sometimes because the size of the cursor, but it wasn't too bad. The graphics were good, the game looked very nice! The music was good too. Fit well with the game. Over all this was a very nice collab! Hope you guys make more in the future.

Clever

I really enjoyed this quiz, I thought it was pretty unique and fun! I thought the layout of this quiz was great. and the graphics at the end were good. Really good idea to make those pictures black and white, otherwise this quiz would have been way too easy. The pictures were great. I like how they got harder and harder over time and they were of good quality. It was surprising to see how hard this quiz got by the end. Over all this quiz was really good. By the way I got 18/21.


Bezman responds:

Glad you liked it!

I would have been interested to know what you didn't like about it though - I mean you didn't make a single criticism, but gave it a 7/10.

Thanks for getting into details and giving your score though. I still give your review 7/10. ;-)

Stay funky!

Average

This was a pretty good Windows game but it didn't have anything different from any of the other ones. All of the features seemed to work just fine. I had the most problems with the painting. You were able to draw on the screen, the pad could have been bigger, and it would have been nice to have more colors. Other then that the other features were good. Over all this game was alright, I just wish you added something for more originality.

Nice attempt

I thought this game was a great idea. It has a lot of potential, but there are a lot of flaws. The controls worked fine. Some more details in the background would have been nice (trees, bushes, ect.). The dialogue the characters used was good. The walking system was pretty bad. You should have been able to hold down the arrow keys to walk, not keep having to rapidly press them. Some walking animation would have been a good idea to add in. I shouldn't have been able to walk through characters either. The battle system was good to an extent. The actual battling system was good and actually fun. But it was way too easy, there should have been somewhat of a challenge put into it. Over all this game was decent, but it had a lot of errors. Just spend some more time on this and it would be good. Keep it up!
