DK Jungle Climber

The Gamers Temple
18 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Historically, gamers fear and distrust change almost as much as politicians. Think about any game sequel or franchise that has dared to try something new. Remember the hysteria over Metroid going 3D? Or the griping over any Starfox game that wasn't a carbon copy of Starfox 64? Or the meltdown fans would have if the next Final Fantasy game doesn't star an effeminate anti-hero with a clichéd past? All joking aside, gamers hate change.

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a classic feeling Donkey Kong game that emulates some of the Country atmosphere then Jungle Climber may be what you're looking for. It's the quasi-sequel to King of Swing but really it's more of a revisit to the original obscure title. The L and R buttons translate well to the swinging mechanics and many creative points were added to expand upon that idea.

  • Excerpt: Name: DK Jungle Climber Genre: Side Scrolling Adventure System: Nintendo DS The new generation hasn’t been good to Donkey Kong. It seems with every game that comes out the otherwise intelligible ape has been numbed down into Nintendo’s very own stupid brute. Color me old fashioned but didn’t he always come off as the smart but misunderstood type?

  • Conclusion: DK Jungle Climber ist sicherlich kein schlechtes Spiel, denn sowohl die Technik als auch der Umfang sind okay. Allerdings ist die Steuerung teilweise einfach viel zu hektisch und daher kommt in späteren Leveln sehr schnell Frust auf. Wer sich davon nicht stören lässt und Lust auf ein etwas anderes Jump & Run hat, für den ist der Titel mit Sicherheit geeignet. Menschen, die schnell die Fassung verlieren, wenn mal etwas nicht klappt, sollten besser die Finger davon lassen.
