Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong is a great PC port of Nintendo's classic arcade game that
needs no introduction, since it has been ported to just about every
console and computer system you can imagine. In case you have never heard
of the game until this moment (and if thatís true, you most likely never
played games until recently), hereís the deal: you control a plump
construction worker called Jumpman (who would later morph into a plumber
named Mario in Nintendoís most successful series) who must rescue his
girlfriend Pauline from the clutches of Donkey Kong, a giant gorilla
modeled after the movie. You do this by jumping over barrels and other
obstacles that Kong throw at you, and climbing up ladders to the top.
Straightforward, but a lot of fun and quite addictive. This port by Atari
does justice to the original arcade sensation, only minus the bright
colors due to hardware limitations of PCs in 1983. Still, it remains one
of Atariís best PC ports that remain highly playable to this day. Be sure
to slow the game down with slowdown programs, though.
