Donkey Kong (Original) Full Playthrough (JP Arcade Version)

author Carls493   7 years ago

This is emulated with MAME 0.119+. The American version only has the 1st and last levels, but the Japanese version also has the 2nd and 3rd. The name of this ROM is "Japan set 1".

There were a couple mistakes, but this was quick to complete compared to my many other videos. I'm sorry if my lack of skill in this game doesn't please you enough.


LEVEL 1: 25m: Jump over barrels, or smash them with hammers, and climb ladders to reach Pauline.

LEVEL 2: 50m: Reach Donkey Kong's floor by climbing moving ladders and passing conveyer belts while avoiding fires, pies, and Donkey Kong, himself.

LEVEL 3: 75m: Use elevators and ladders while avoiding fires and springboards to reach Pauline's floor.

LEVEL 4: 100m: Use ladders to climb and break all of the pegs, while avoiding or destroying puffy flames with hammers.. Once you break all of the pegs, Donkey Kong will fall, and Jumpman, a.k.a. Mario, will be reunited for good.

And then the game starts RIGHT over again... *sigh*

In Levels 2 - 4, you can collect items for extra points. These are Pauline's sunhat, umbrella, and purse. The Bonus at the top-right corner of the screen is also a time limit. 1 second of time multiplied by 100 represents the Bonus points you get after beating the level. If the Bonus hits 000, you die!

In Levels 1 & 4, hammers will let you break barrels in Level 1, and flames in Level 4 for a few seconds. However, you can't jump with them, and you can't climb ladders with them. Because of how they're set up in those levels, you can't even use them to hit Donkey Kong if you tried. Notice how the flames in Level 4 turn blue when you grab a hammer. It's as if you were Pac-Man and they were Ghosts.

WOW! Over 39,000 views! I wasn't expecting this to do so well. Thanks, everyone!

HOLY CRAP! Over 132,000 views! I wonder if it has to do with that... particularly infamous movie known as Pixels, hmmmm...?

Oh well. Love it or hate it, if you're trying to figure out where Donkey Kong came from in that movie, look no further. The things you see the characters do to get through this game in that movie may end up being different from what you see out of the game itself, here.

OVER 424,000 VIEWS?! Wow... Thanks, Pixels.

755,000+ VIEWS!

834,000+ VIEWS!!

943,000+ VIEWS!!!



4/3/16 UPDATE: Since this video's proven to be an extremely popular video thanks to the game's appearance in Pixels, I may consider making quick playthroughs of some of the other arcade games that also showed up in that movie. I'm not really interested in seeing the movie, itself, though, but I might change my mind later.


And not only that, as of this post of 7/9/16, this, the original Donkey Kong arcade game, is now officially over 35 years old! CONGRATULATIONS!

OVER 3.1 MILLION VIEWS?! How is this still going so well?!




That's it! I'm planning a new playthrough of this game. And it will show off ALL of the levels with NO DEATHS!

7/7/18 UPDATE: Check out my newest run of the American version, here!:

Thanks for watching, everyone!
