Mario vs Donkey Kong ROM

mario vs donkey kong rom
When focusing on the main objectives, Mario vs. Donkey Kong is about 5½ Hours in length. If you're a gamer that strives to see all aspects of the game, you are likely to spend around 11 Hours to obtain 100% completion.

To get a star for the bosses, you must rescue all six Mini-Marios in the previous Mini-Mario level and not take a hit during the boss fight. Note that if you enter a Donkey Kong boss level without playing the previous Mini-Mario level, you'll only start with four Mini-Marios (four hits) and you won't be able to get the star. This only applies to the six main bosses, and not the Plus bosses.

Pauline (originally known as Lady or the Beautiful Girl) is the damsel-in-distress in the arcade game Donkey Kong, the installment that marked her debut in both the Donkey Kong and Mario franchises, along with Mario and her titular kidnapper (confirmed in later games to be a younger Cranky Kong).

Additional Information

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a game for the Game Boy Advance. It brings back Mario and Donkey Kong’s rivalry from the Mario franchise’s first game, Donkey Kong. The game is more or less a spiritual successor to Donkey Kong for the Game Boy, as it features the return of many original elements such as the construction site setting, Mario’s athleticism, and using the hammer, and borrows elements from Super Mario Bros. 2, especially with picking up enemies and items.

Despite bringing elements from the previous platformers, Mario vs. Donkey Kong is more of a puzzle platformer; Mario must find the best route to complete the level by hitting switches and interacting with other objects, often in a specific order. This game spawned multiple sequels and became the first installment of the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series; this is the only game in the series, however, to feature Mario himself as a playable character since the later games have the player control Mini-Marios.
