Donkey Kong Land is a video game developed by Rareware for the Game Boy, released in 1995. It is a completely original follow-up to the original Donkey Kong Country. The game was later followed by Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III. Some of the game's music was used in the Game Boy Color remake of Donkey Kong Country.

Plot

Cranky Kong, jealous of all the success Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong have had from Donkey Kong Country, states that the only reason their first adventure was such a big hit was because of all the fanciful graphics and sound. He challenges that they'd never cut it on an 8-bit system (Game Boy), and then proceeds to get King K. Rool to steal the banana hoard once again. King K. Rool agrees with Cranky and steals the bananas again.

Gameplay

There were several gameplay mechanics that were changed to better suit the Game Boy. For example, only one character was displayed at one time because of the smaller screen, while the second one would teleport in when players needed him. There were four worlds in Donkey Kong Land, all brand new but including some of the same level archetypes as seen in Donkey Kong Country. They all took place on and off the coast of Donkey Kong Island.

Reception

Donkey Kong Land received a 71% at Gamerankings.

Awards

Donkey Kong Land was awarded Best Game Boy Game of 1995 by Electronic Gaming Monthly.[1]
