Donkey Kong - Arcade
Donkey Kong is an arcade game that was released by Nintendo in 1981. The game is an early example of the platform genre as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging obstacles. The storyline is thin but well-developed for its time. In it, Mario (originally called Jumpman) must rescue a damsel in distress, Pauline, from a giant ape named Donkey Kong. The hero and ape went on to become two of Nintendo's more popular characters.

This 1982 arcade game's basic concept is the same as Donkey Kong except the good guys and bad guys have switched places. The player controls Donkey Kong Junior, a small ape who must leap from platforms, climb vines, and avoid enemies to rescue Donkey Kong from Mario.

Donkey Kong 3 - Arcade
The third and final arcade outing for Donkey Kong, released in 1983, sees the giant ape once again cast as the enemy. Unlike the first two Kong games, the legendary character Mario (aka Jumpman) doesn't appear, with the player taking on the role of 'Stanley', a gardener who is armed with a bug spray with which he must destroy the swarms of insects that attack Stanley and try to steal his plants.

Donkey Kong was Nintendo's breakthru hit, first appearing in arcades in the early 80s, and followed shortly by equally popular arcade hits Donkey Kong Junior and Donkey Kong 3. Although first called 'jumpman' in the original arcade, the hero plumber would later be called Mario, and two separate gaming legends were born.

This list follows the evolution and titles featuring Donkey Kong.
