People all over the internet attempts to remake and renew classic arcade games. Many of them are fairly good and somewhat noteworthy. The game featured today is DK Arcade Returns 2, developed by LilDwarf of Newgrounds. This flash game is epically good and will force most core gamers to take it easy on their first run through the game.
The story is the same. You are Jumpman, before he became Mario, and you have to rescue the girl from Donkey Kong. Donkey Kong won’t make it easy for you. He scales the most dangerous buildings and hurls barrels at for sport. You have to jump every platform and dodge every barrel and fiery barrel to make it to the top. We all know that happens after you reach her however. He picks her up and keeps going higher and higher. Why did he have to run to a skyscraper?
Graphically the game matches the original in almost every way as well as the audio. The game play is still intact as well except for some minor differences. The developer decided to add difficult levels to Donkey Kong. The developer was very gracious in this decision. The easy difficulty won’t allow you to die no matter how far you fall down and there are some occasional shortcuts throughout the level. Medium will cause you to die if you fall 2 stories. In the hard setting you die from falling from one story. Playing the game for just a few minutes will allow you to see the difference between Easy and Hard. It’s the same levels it’s just how you die that makes it difficult.
Follow the link below definitely to play and awesome Flash game based on a great classic. Who knows maybe the great Steve Wiebe or our local hero Billy Mitchell might try to get to the kill screen in the game.
