Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a sub-series of the Mario and Donkey Kong series, based on puzzle video games, marking Pauline’s return and Donkey Kong’s rivalry with Mario.
Of course, most games’ information is quite significant, and Mario vs. DK has a hilarious one. While in his home one day in the Congo Jungle, DK was watching TV, scrolling through News, an ad for new Mini-Mario toys, bananas, then he flips back to the Mini-Mario ad. Donkey Kong was entranced in the ad. He thought to himself. He just had to have one of these magnificent toys! So he runs over to the nearest toy shop, and lo and behold, they’re all sold out!
Donkey Kong is quite frustrated at this, and when he turns around, he gleams a brilliant idea. Instead of waiting for Mini Mario toys’ next shipment to arrive, he decides to steal them directly from the Mario Tou Company, which he is standing right next to. Quite a dilemma now…..many Toads in the factory are quickly boxing up Mini Marios when Donkey Kong rushes in and stuffs as many as he can into has large rope tether sack.
The controls are quite easy to learn, especially if you’ve played any other Mario game before this. Of course, jumping is naturally still here, along with over a dozen other moves Mario can pull off (and some only in specified levels). Like in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, Mario can pull Side Summersaults to reach high platforms. Of course, many new moves haven’t been featured in any other Mario game, like the Handstand, for instance. Before most levels, a little demo of a new move will appear along with its controls. The movies are quite informative. Many moves like vine climbing are made easy with better controls, which makes the game so good.
