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...

Gaming Evolution

  • 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.

DK King of Swing

Nintendo World Report
16 April 2005
  • Summary: "You want some more? Because I'll spank you every time!" - King K. Rool
  • 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!

  • Excerpt: Vilter balansegang mellom lianer av ymse sort er ingenting nytt for jungelens ukronede konge. Denne gang legger ikke utviklerene noe som helst i mellom, og tar konseptet helt ut. Et spill som utelukkende er basert på å svinge seg fra holdepunkt til holdepunkt har blitt resultatet.
