Donkey Kong

Nintendo (1981)
Might it have the best soundtrack of the early 80's games? Yes, indeed!

I definitely played both the arcade and the ColecoVision version of this, maybe the ColecoVision version more, but since that was only at our babysitter's house, I'm going to keep this as the arcade version. The arcade version is superior to basically all the other ports anyways. Particularly those iconic sounds. The squeaky shoes on Mario as he walks on the beams, the objectively excellent walking soundtrack as you climb the tower, and the stupendous level beginning and ending jingles. A lot of the sounds and complexity of this game would launch Nintendo into the superstardom of the era and you can hear and see that style, for sure.

I only gave it a 3 because iIm not that good at Donkey Kong.

If you like this page, you can buy me a coffee.
