Donkey Kong is one of the most recognizable characters in video gaming history. He has been featured in more than 200 games and his humorous personality has made him one of the most popular Nintendo characters ever. Donkey Kong’s creator Shigeru Miyamoto was inspired by Mickey Mouse (who he played as a child), who was created at Walt Disney Animation Studios when Miyamoto was working there as an animator. Donkey Kong includes elements from several different sources, including Disney’s Mickey Mouse cartoons, which were popular at the time; King Kong films; and an animated Japanese comic called Akachan by Satoru Fujimoto that’s popular with children in Japan today.

The Google doodle is the most famous and recognizable in the world. It’s been a part of global culture since 1998, when Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded the company. The first Google Doodle featured a cartoon of two characters named “Googol” who are shown smiling at each other while holding up their hands to form an 8-bit computer (see below). Since then, Google’s birthday doodles have become increasingly complex and intricate—and they’re not just limited to birthdays! In fact, there are several different types of doodles that can be created on any given day:

  • Backgrounds – This type features a simple image like clouds or flowers against which you can place text boxes with information about whatever topic it might be celebrating; examples include Mother’s Day (May 12th), Father’s Day (June 19th), Valentine’s Day (February 14th), Mardi Gras 2018 etcetera.

Most doodles can be done in just a few minutes using simple materials like markers, paints, or crayons (if you’re feeling ambitious enough to try it yourself). All doodling takes place on paper or other flat surfaces.

Google’s birthday doodles are designed by a team of illustrators and animators, who work closely with our engineers to make sure that everything looks just right—even if it’s just an image of two characters holding up their hands like they’re celebrating Google’s birthday.

The Original Storyline of Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong was a giant ape who kidnapped a beautiful girl, Pauline, and Mario had to rescue her. The game was released in 1981 by Nintendo and it has been one of the most popular video games ever since then.

When you play as Mario, you go through different levels in order to save Pauline from Donkey Kong. You have to collect coins and hit switches so that Donkey can’t get to her or else he’ll kidnap her again!

There are many different types of people who play this game, but there is one thing they all share in common: they love playing video games. For some reason, no matter how hard you try to stop yourself from playing video games – whether it’s by eating more carrots or doing other activities instead – it always seems like no matter what happens, when you get home after school or work there will always be time left over to play a quick round of Donkey Kong.

Donkey Kong 30th Anniversary – The Gaming Industry’s King Kong The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was the first home console to feature Donkey Kong. It has since become a cult classic, spawning sequels such as “Donkey Kong Country” and “Donkey Kong 64.”

As a side note, we should mention how the game’s characters have changed since then. Donkey Kong is still an ape but he no longer kidnaps Pauline for being too beautiful and instead has Mario rescuing her from his clutches.

The Origins of Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong was the first game created by Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto, who also designed Super Mario Bros. in 1985. Donkey Kong was originally called “Jumpman” and released for the arcades in 1981. He went on to be one of the most popular characters in arcade history, and his popularity led to him being included in a variety of games over the years—including some that have been released on home consoles and handheld devices such as Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), Game Boy Advance (GBA), Nintendo DS Lite, PlayStation 2 console series and Xbox 360/Xbox One video game consoles

Original Donkey Kong Games

Donkey Kong GamesDonkey Kong is the first game in the Donkey Kong series, released by Nintendo in 1981. It was developed by Shigeru Miyamoto and designed for arcades. The game was originally released as “Donkey Kong” on a cart before being ported to multiple platforms including consoles, handhelds and home computers.

The game has been ported to several consoles since its initial release.

The game was the first to feature Donkey Kong as an antagonist, who is kidnapped by Mario in order to save Pauline and her pet, a dog named Rufus. The game also introduced new characters like Luigi and Toad.

Donkey Kong Country Games

Donkey Kong Country GamesDonkey Kong Country was a platform game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was developed by Rare, who would later go on to create GoldenEye 007 and Banjo-Kazooie, two other legendary games. Donkey Kong Country was the first sequel to Mario’s famous friend in a long time—since it came out in 1994, people have been waiting for another entry into this series.

Donkey Kong Country was an excellent example of how video games can be used as artistic expression rather than just mindless entertainment; its creative use of color and vivid imagery made it stand out among other platformers at that time period. The game also introduced many new elements such as physics simulation, level design and sound effects into its world; these things allowed players to explore more than ever before while playing through each stage with ease!

Handheld Donkey Kong Games

Donkey Kong was the first game released for Game Boy, and it was a smash hit. The original game sold over 4 million copies worldwide, which is impressive considering that there were only five games on the platform at the time.

The next year saw two more Donkey Kong games: Donkey Kong Jr. Math and Donkey Kong Land, both of which were re-releases of older games that had been released on other platforms such as NES or SNES (Nintendo Entertainment System). These two games are less popular than their predecessor but still have their own following due to nostalgia value alone; they may not be as popular today but they’re still worth checking out if you’re interested in learning about Nintendo’s history from its earliest days up until present day!

The Classic Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong was the first game to introduce Mario to the world and it was also the first game that featured Jumpman, who would become one of Nintendo’s most iconic characters. Donkey Kong’s main rival in this game was Pauline, another damsel in distress who needed rescuing by Mario or Luigi (depending on how you play).

The original version of Donkey Kong has been remade several times over the years:

  • The Japanese release of 1982 had an additional stage called “Donkey Kong Junior”. In this version, there were no enemies; instead, Mario would have to rescue children who were trapped inside barrels or cages by jumping on them while they’re still alive (this made him immune from bullets). If they were killed before he could reach them though then he would lose one life point each time so it wasn’t really much fun after all!

Nintendo’s Success with DK

Donkey Kong was one of Nintendo’s first successes, and it remains one of the company’s most successful franchises to this day. The game was originally released for arcades in 1981, but Nintendo quickly adapted it for home consoles after seeing how popular it was with gamers. Donkey Kong’s success inspired a series of games that featured Mario (the company’s mascot) as well as other characters from various games released by Nintendo throughout their history.

In addition to these titles, Donkey Kong also inspired another classic video game: Super Mario Bros., which has been played by millions since its release in 1985 on NES—Nintendo’s first home console system developed specifically for gaming–as well as SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System).

How Donkey Kong Shattered the Gaming World

Donkey Kong is a classic gaming character and a landmark in the industry. He’s been around for decades, but he was also at the forefront of innovation.

He first appeared on arcade machines in 1981 and has since become one of Nintendo’s most recognizable characters. The popularity of this ape continued to grow as it became an arcade hit—and then helped drive home consoles like Atari 2600, Atari 7800 and even Sony PlayStation 2. Donkey Kong was one of those games that everyone played whether they knew what it was or not—and when it came out on home consoles like Nintendo 64 (N64), Game Boy Advance (GBA) or GameCube (GC) there were many who still enjoyed playing this classic title with friends today!

Donkey Kong’s Legacy and Future

Donkey Kong’s legacy and future are as bright as ever. In addition to being one of the most popular video games of all time, he has also become an important cultural icon for many people around the world. Donkey Kong is a classic gaming character and an influential figure in gaming history, having been created by Nintendo in 1981 along with its sequel Donkey Kong Jr. Both games were released on arcade machines before being ported to home consoles where they became huge hits with consumers looking for new experiences at home (or even on their computers). The original Donkey Kong game was meant to be played by two players simultaneously; however, this feature was removed from later versions because it could encourage cheating between partners who worked together in order to beat levels faster than if each player had been playing alone.”

Donkey Kong vs. King Kong

Donkey Kong vs. King Kong is a video game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy Advance in 2003. It was released on September 18th, 2003 in North America, and received a limited release in Australia the following month. Donkey Kong is the main character of this game and he must defeat King Kong who is trying to stop him from reaching his destination (the top of an office building) using his kung fu skills against giant robot bees that he summons from out of nowhere at first glance, but later on during gameplay these robots turn into real bees when you hit them with your hammer or jump on their heads!

The game has 4 levels: Jungle level where you fight enemies like boars and bears; Ocean level where you fight sharks; Ancient Ruins level where there are ruins filled with lava pits which can be used as stepping stones over them; Boss battle against an evil scientist who wants revenge after being defeated earlier by Diddy’s team so he builds huge robots made out of metal plates connected together with hooks attached to each plate then fires missiles at Diddy’s team until all face off against him – this boss has multiple limbs making up its body so attacking any one limb would cause damage elsewhere too!

Shigeru Miyamoto’s Donkey Kong changed the gaming world forever

Donkey Kong is a classic gaming character and an industry landmark. Nintendo’s success with Donkey Kong can be attributed to Shigeru Miyamoto, who created the character in 1981. He also designed many other famous characters such as Mario and Link.

Miyamoto worked at HAL Laboratory until 1986 when he founded his own company called Entertainment Analysis Corporation (EAC). He started out making arcade games but later switched over to personal computers with titles like Super Mario Bros., Excitebike and Wave Race 64 among others being developed by EAC during this period

Donkey Kong was the first game to feature a female character in the form of Pauline. Miyamoto designed the original stage design and level progression as well, which were later expanded upon by future designers.


All in all, Donkey Kong has been a great character for both Nintendo and gamers alike. The franchise has endured for nearly 30 years, with more than 80 games released in that time. His influence on the gaming world cannot be overstated; without him there would be no Mario or Zelda games today! So if you want some nostalgia or just want to play one of these classic titles (namely Donkey Kong Country) then look no further than your local shop or online retailer. You won’t regret it!!
