This is the remake of the famous SNES classic horizontal-scrolling arcade platformer, the Donkey Kong Country, for the Gameboy Advance, offering gameplay with new mini-games, a new Attack mode, and the ability to save your progress anywhere. Nintendo's main goal in 1994 was to show that the Super NES could still hold its own against the graphics and audio capabilities of the more expensive and more powerful machines coming into the market from Sega, Sony, and other companies. In that respect, Donkey Kong Country was, and in many ways still is, a resounding success.
 
Review
Donkey Kong CountryKing K. Rool and his Kremlings have stolen Donkey Kong's banana hoard, and now it's up to Donkey Kong and his little friend Diddy Kong (a small cute monkey) to get it back. With help from Cranky Kong, Candy Kong and Funky Kong, the two simian heroes will have to explore every inch of the island, from the treetops of the Kongo Jungle to the icy cliffs of Gorilla Glacier. Donkey is stronger while Diddy is quicker to move. You can lift barrels, earn bonuses and jump on foes' heads, travelling through fantastic tropical places.
A fantastic arcade/action platform that is!

For this remake, Nintendo and Rare have made a few graphical improvements and adjustments in an effort to compensate for the unique size and contrast of the GBA's LCD screen. The visible screen area is cropped slightly, more on the top and bottom than the left and right. In general, this doesn't pose a problem, except in rare situations when you need to jump onto a moving platform situated just below your range of vision. Much of the animation and artwork for the characters has been redone as well. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, the two stars of the game, move more gracefully and react more visibly to contact with enemies and hazards. Many of the larger Kremling characters, who are the enemies in the game, also display a more lifelike range of motion.
Soundwise, the game offers all the original SNES version glory, but many of the tunes from the original game have been remixed and redone for the GBA version, likely due to the differences between the sound hardware in the Super NES and GBA.
