"I'll be honest. Initially I was going to rate this 4 stars. Like in my first 30 minutes of gameplay. It just felt very childish and almost cheesy. And a little too easy. I was thinking, "I get it, and it's pretty cool, but just not all the way for me."
Then I kept playing and it drew me in completely. Such a fantastic creation. Innovative and relatably familiar all at once. It definitely IS a kid's game, and I knew that, but it's very relaxing to play one level and then challenging at the right times.
Most of all I play this and I'm just so happy for all the really young kids getting introduced to video games for the first time through this game. This game will be their nostalgia. This is that formative gaming experience that they'll have. And WOW, what a great one it is.
This game is singlehandedly creating countless priceless lifelong memories for the next generation of video game fans. Doesn't get much better than that."
"This game is a pretty stupid, ad-filled mobile game. That said, I play it all the time. Haha.@thelion found it, somehow. And now I play it because I'm trying to catch up to him on levels. It kills time. That is all. "
"I did not play the first one so take this for what it’s worth. But this game feels exciting and fast paced. I’m a fan already. My son asked what it was like and i said “Apex mixed with Valorant.” I’m sure that’s ignorant but don’t kick me off this site please. "
"Pretty cool. Just started playing with @thelion . Feels simpler than I thought it would be but I’m sure I’m just scratching the surface. Tho the team dynamics and ease of play could make this a good party game if you have enough people. "
"This is the greatest game I've ever made. (I actually didn't really make it. But I helped produce!) It's actually a very fun lil game. The overlay messages and challenges were fun to write. I've gotten pretty good at it. I can even turn this car around. "
"I LOVE THIS GAME. I am not good at that many video games. I am pretty decent at @mariokart and @rocketleague. But I am actually good at this game. I have met a few people in my life who can compete with me, but I don't think I've ever met anyone who could beat me more than I would beat them. I challenge anyone to this game. "
"This was the first game I was obsessed with beating all the way through. My older brother and I stayed up all night and defeated it. I'm pretty sure we used Game Genie, but still, I was so proud. Just looking at gameplay footage and screenshots fills me with nostalgia. That's what gaming is all about."
"I bet when this came out everyone was like “Oh you can’t reimagine Donkey Kong, it’s a classic.” and if they came out with a new version of this now they’d say “Oh you can’t reimagine Donkey Kong Country, it’s a classic.”"
