  • Excerpt: The original Donkey Konga proved to be a critical and commercial success. It seemed that everyone-- players of all ages and all gaming skill levels--enjoyed drumming to Nintendo's first rhythm game. The game is played by beating on a pair of special conga controllers.

  • Conclusion: For both single and multiplayer there are a variety of modes including Jam Session, Battle, Challenge, and Street Performance where you play for coins, but the underlying gameplay mechanics pretty much stay the same. There are purchasable mini-games to break things up.
