Donkey Kong (ドンキーコング Donkī Kongu?) is a platform video game made by Nintendo for the Game Boy handheld game console. It stars Mario who has to save his girlfriend Pauline from Donkey Kong, just like in the original Donkey Kong game for the arcades. The gameplay in the first 4 levels is the same as the first Donkey Kong game, but then it becomes more like the Mario vs. Donkey Kong game in the next levels.
