Donkey kong country competition edition: Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartridge

The Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartridge is a cut-down competition variant of Donkey Kong Country manufactured for use in the Nintendo PowerFest ’94 game competition and later featured in the Blockbuster World Video Game Championships II event. Following the end of the later contest, copies of the Competition cartridge were sold in a Nintendo Power subscribers catalogue. Due to its rarity (the back insert states the print run was of 2,500 copies), the game has become a prized collector item.

The actual game consists of a few select levels from Donkey Kong Country with the addition of a point counter and a few minor tweaks to encourage scoring, the goal being to score as many points as possible. The tree house and banana cave at the start of Jungle Hijinxs have been disabled and all of the animal tokens in the early levels have been replaced with banana bunches, making it impossible to reach the bonus round without the usage of a cheating device. The player is also given 50 starting extra lives instead of the 5 as in the original game. The game has a time limit of five minutes, which is displayed at the center of the screen. After the allotted time, the game freezes.

Donkey Kong Country [b] is a 1994 platform game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It is a reboot of Nintendo’s Donkey Kong franchise , featuring the gorilla Donkey Kong and his nephew Diddy Kong, who set out to reclaim their stolen banana hoards from the crocodile king K.

After developing games for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the 1980s, Rare, a British studio founded by Tim and Chris Stamper, purchased Silicon Graphics workstations to render 3D models. Nintendo was looking for a game that could compete with Sega’s Aladdin (1993), and commissioned Rare to revive the dormant Donkey Kong franchise. Rare brought together 12 developers to work on the Donkey Kong Country over the course of 18 months. Donkey Kong Country was inspired by the series of Super Mario , and was one of the first home console games to feature graphics produced using a compression method that converted 3D models into SNES sprites with little loss of detail. It was the first Donkey Kong game not to be produced or directed by series creator Shigeru Miyamoto, although he contributed his own design ideas.

After being announced at the Consumer Electronics Show on June 1994 years Donkey Kong Country The was highly anticipated and supported by a massive marketing campaign that cost $16 million in America alone. It was released in November 1994 to acclaim; critics called its visuals groundbreaking and praised the gameplay and music. Its quality and design compares favorably with the Super Mario series. Donkey Kong Country won several awards at the end of the year and set the record for the fastest selling video game of the time. 9 sold worldwideWith .3 million copies, it is the third most popular SNES game and the top selling game of Donkey Kong. game. Following the success, Nintendo acquired a large minority stake in Rare, which in the late 1990s
became a well-known third-party developer for Nintendo.

Donkey Kong Country revived Donkey Kong as a popular Nintendo franchise and is credited with helping Nintendo win the 1990s console war and keeping the SNES popular in the fifth generation of game consoles. It is considered one of the greatest video games of all time and has been ported to platforms such as the Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and digital distribution services. It was followed by two sequels to Rare for the SNES: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest (1995) and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble! (1996) and the Nintendo 64 game Donkey Kong 64 (1999). After a hiatus during which Rare was acquired by Nintendo competitor Microsoft, Retro Studios revived the series with releasing Donkey Kong Country Returns (2010) for the Wii and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (2014) for the Wii
