DK: King of Swing

Gaming Evolution
2 February 2006
  • Conclusion: Overall, King of Swing is a fun experience making Donkey Kong’s return to the adventure genre a welcomed one. If you’re looking for a new Gamboy Advance game to get, King of Swing is an excellent choice.

  • Excerpt: So the other day, I walk into my local GameStop just browsing, looking for some sort of GBA game I could play, since I've had a real lack of new GBA titles lately, when I come across DK: King of Swing. Naturally, I skipped over it, falling under the impression that it was a crap game, without actually having fully played it, let alone tested it, and browsed what little selection the store actually had (that's GameStop for you).

Donkey Kong: King of Swing

Project COE
11 July 2005
  • Conclusion: Nintendo has kept the title pretty hush hush, even though its scheduled release is two months away. Even at E3, the demo was minimally effective for getting an idea of the game. Maybe the Jungle Beat idea is cooler than we give it credit for, but it seems as if Nintendo is forgetting the true roots of the ape. Sure the bongos were cool the first time you used them, but trying to put the idea on your handheld is a little extreme. Where's our traditional Donkey Kong game?

DK King of Swing

Nintendo World Report
16 April 2005
  • Summary: "You want some more? Because I'll spank you every time!" - King K.
  • Pros: BRILLIANT gameplay mechanic, which keeps adding new challenges, Donkey Kong Country references everywhere, Get ready to lose! This game is TOUGH!, Heaps of unlockables and secrets
  • Cons: Probably not best to use on SP due to its small shoulder buttons., Those raised on watered-down difficulty games will find this hard!

  • Summary: Spieleinfos Entwickler: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Spieleranzahl: 1 Genre: Action Mit dem Spiel DK - King of Swing erreichte die Nintendo-Gemeinde im Jahr 2005 ein neues, abgedrehtes Donkey Kong Jump & Run 2D-Spiel, mit einer Spielidee aus alten Wurzeln, die beinahe schon vergessen war. Spielinhalt: Das Spiel wurde neben Nintendo von PAON entwickelt, welches mir mal wieder keinen Eindruck verschaffte. Aber nun gut.
  • Pros: typisches Dschungel Fieber mit DK , Rätsel / KI der Levels , gute Spielidee / Einzelheiten
  • Cons: manchmal fiese Stellen , neuartiges Spielprinzip erfordert antesten
