Donkey Kong Country SNES 1994

[Versión En Español]

Hola Hivers, un placer escribir para todos ustedes nuevamente, en esta ocasión quiero nuevamente viajar en el tiempo y abrir el baúl de la nostalgia para recordar un excelente videojuego para la consola Super Nintendo Entertainment System, un videojuego que muchos recordaremos y que lo protagoniza uno de los personajes más famosos de toda la industria de los videojuegos, el gorila más famoso de todos los tiempos Donkey Kong en el juego llamado Donkey Kong Country.

Este es un videojuego lanzado en el año 1994, es desarrollado por una compañía que ha creado videojuegos que me encantan y no es para menos creo que de verdad hacen maravillas aprovechando al máximo las capacidades de las consolas, hablo de la compañía Rareware que recuerdo mucho por el desarrollo de Killer Instinct y años después agente 007 Golden Eye para la N64.

Donkey Kong Country es del género de plataformas, me atrevo a decir que es parte de una de las mejores sagas de este género para la SNES, protagonizado por uno de los personajes más famosos que en esta oportunidad lo observamos como nunca antes, incluso con su núcleo familiar y en compañía de su sobrino Diddy Kong.

Existen varios aspectos en los cuales este videojuego en el año 1994 lo hace resaltar no solo dentro del género de plataformas sino en cuanto a la tecnología usada en toda la industria de los videojuego, un videojuego épico y que comienza una saga que coloca en una posición de prestigio a Donkey Kong.

Aspectos Resaltantes del Videojuego

Gráficos:

Lo primero que notamos en este grandioso videojuego son sus gráficos realmente avanzados para la época, recuerdo que para la época el videojuego presentaba un ambiente bastante agradable para el jugador con un aspecto en 3D pre-renderizados, logrado solamente con la tecnología disponible en el momento. Desde niño me agrada observar los detalles en cada videojuego y existen varios aspectos en que se notaba que se estaba aprovechando al máximo las capacidades de la Super Nintendo. Me encantaba ver el movimiento tanto de Donkey Kong como de Diddy Kong al avanzar y al saltar, el movimiento para correr me parecía bastante avanzado para un videojuego de principios de los 90´s, en ese sentido no logro recordar un videojuego del género de plataforma.

Los escenarios variados y de alta calidad me parecían geniales y hacen que el videojuego no sea monótono y repetitivo al menos en gran parte, jungla, nieve, industria o incluso a bajo del mar todo tenía una muy buena calidad.

No solo los personajes principales presentaban una excelente calidad tanto en su diseño como en el movimiento, los villanos o antagonistas del videojuego también presentaban un diseño bastante bueno y vistoso.

Banda Sonora

La banda sonora es excelente, la música era algo que complementaba muy bien el escenario con alta calidad en cuanto a gráficos, teniendo en cuenta que si somos detallistas podemos notar que la música cambia según el tipo de escenario en que se está jugando siendo. La música coincidía con el escenario dando una mejor experiencia al jugador.

Recuerdo que era una música excelente para un videojuego de la época, incluso pegadiza que resonaba y resonaba en la mente luego de jugar unas cuantas horas, la verdad pienso que es uno de los aspectos característicos de este videojuego y que sigue en sus siguientes versiones teniendo una excelente banda sonora en la saga en general.

Jugabilidad

Pienso que en cuanto a la jugabilidad lo más destacado es que podemos cambiar en cualquier momento el personaje principal para ir avanzando en el videojuego, tanto Donkey Kong como de Diddy Kong son los personajes principales en esta aventura y ambos van avanzando en cada escenario, sin embargo, el que va adelante es el que podemos controlar, en cualquier momento podemos cambiar y pasar adelante con alguno de los dos, esto significaba una buena ventaja estratégica para jugar a este videojuego debido a que cada personaje tiene características propias, por ejemplo cuando elegimos a Donkey Kong para ir a la cabeza de la aventura este podrá vencer a los enemigos más fácilmente, por otro lado Diddy Kong es mucho más ágil y rápido, dependiendo de la situación en el escenario podremos elegir a uno y a otro.



Source

En cuanto a dificultad recuerdo que era un videojuego relativamente fácil de jugar, no era uno de esos juegos que eran extremadamente difíciles perteneciente al mismo género de plataformas, sin embargo, siempre encontraremos algunas trabas y obstáculos para completar el videojuego.

Recuerdo que uno de los detalles que me gustaba de este videojuego eran los barriles, nos metíamos en esos barriles y debíamos calcular la dirección donde el personaje iba a salir disparado, normalmente a otro barril pero cuando era en movimiento era algo bastante difícil en algunos casos y créanme hay muchos barriles en este videojuego.

Mi Experiencia

Confieso que al ver este videojuego o la primera publicidad no me llamaba mucho la atención, a pesar de que me agrada el género de plataformas tengo que jugarlos para que saber si deseo seguir con ellos o dejarlos, recuerdo que para mi Super Nintendo tenía varios juegos del genero de plataforma, sin embargo, tenía y jugaba más el género de lucha, en realidad no fue de esos videojuegos que me enamoró a primera vista, sin embargo, los gráficos me parecían geniales para la época.



Source

Lo jugué por primera vez en la consola de un amigo y me di cuenta que era un videojuego genial, claro, el videojuego es lanzado en 1994, sin embargo, así como en muchos videojuegos lo pude jugar años después en la segunda mitad de la década y realmente me impresionó, a pesar de que lo jugué varios años luego de su lanzamiento me pareció un videojuego bastante avanzado.



Source

Mi Opinión

Me parece un videojuego del genero de plataformas excelente, le abre las puertas a una excelente saga en la cual se conocera Donkey Kong y saltara a la fama en la industria de los videojuegos, en lo particular esa saga de Donkey Kong en la década de los 90´s fue una de las mejores en cuanto los aspectos anteriormente analizados, teniendo como el punto de partida Donkey Kong Country, simplemente una obra de arte creada por Rareware.

Donkey Kong Country SNES 1994

[English Version]

Hello Hivers, a pleasure to write for all of you again, this time I want to travel back in time and open the trunk of nostalgia to remember an excellent video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, a video game that many will remember and that stars one of the most famous characters of the entire video game industry, the most famous gorilla of all time Donkey Kong in the game called Donkey Kong Country.



Source

This is a video game released in 1994, is developed by a company that has created video games that I love and not for less I think they really do wonders making the most of the capabilities of consoles, I speak of the company Rareware that I remember a lot for the development of Killer Instinct and years later Agent 007 Golden Eye for the N64.



Source

Donkey Kong Country is of the platform genre, I dare to say that it is part of one of the best sagas of this genre for the SNES, starring one of the most famous characters that this time we see him as never before, even with his core family and in the company of his nephew Diddy Kong.



Source

There are several aspects in which this video game in 1994 makes it stand out not only within the platform genre but in terms of the technology used in the entire video game industry, an epic video game and that begins a saga that places Donkey Kong in a prestigious position.

Video Game Highlights

Graphics:

The first thing we notice in this great video game are its really advanced graphics for the time, I remember that for the time the video game presented a quite pleasant environment for the player with a pre-rendered 3D look, achieved only with the technology available at the time. Ever since I was a kid I liked to observe the details in every video game and there were several aspects where you could see that the Super Nintendo was being used to its fullest capabilities. I loved to see the movement of both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong when advancing and jumping, the movement to run seemed to me quite advanced for a video game of the early 90's, in that sense I can not remember a video game of the platform genre.



Source

The varied and high quality scenarios seemed great and make the game not monotonous and repetitive at least in large part, jungle, snow, industry or even under the sea all had a very good quality.

Not only the main characters presented an excellent quality both in their design and movement, the villains or antagonists of the game also presented a pretty good and colorful design.

Soundtrack

The soundtrack is excellent, the music was something that complemented the scenery very well with high quality in terms of graphics, taking into account that if we are detailed we can notice that the music changes according to the type of scenery you are playing being. The music matched the scenery giving a better experience to the player.

I remember that it was an excellent music for a video game of the time, even catchy that resonated and echoed in the mind after playing a few hours, the truth I think is one of the characteristic aspects of this video game and that continues in its following versions having an excellent soundtrack in the saga in general.



Source

Playability

I think that in terms of gameplay the highlight is that we can change at any time the main character to move forward in the game, both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are the main characters in this adventure and both are moving forward in each scenario, however, the one who goes ahead is the one we can control, at any time we can change and move forward with either of the two, This meant a good strategic advantage to play this video game because each character has its own characteristics, for example when we choose Donkey Kong to go to the head of the adventure he can defeat the enemies more easily, on the other hand Diddy Kong is much more agile and fast, depending on the situation in the scenario we can choose one or the other.



Source

In terms of difficulty I remember that it was a relatively easy game to play, it was not one of those games that were extremely difficult belonging to the same genre of platforms, however, we will always find some obstacles and obstacles to complete the game.

I remember that one of the details that I liked about this game were the barrels, we got into those barrels and we had to calculate the direction where the character was going to be shot, usually to another barrel but when it was moving it was quite difficult in some cases and believe me there are many barrels in this game.



Source

My Experience

I confess that when I saw this video game or the first advertisement it did not call my attention, although I like the platform genre I have to play them to know if I want to continue with them or leave them, I remember that for my Super Nintendo I had several games of the platform genre, however, I had and played more the fighting genre, actually it was not one of those video games that I fell in love at first sight, however, the graphics seemed great for the time.



Source

I played it for the first time on a friend's console and I realized that it was a great video game, of course, the video game is released in 1994, however, as well as in many video games I could play it years later in the second half of the decade and it really impressed me, even though I played it several years after its release I found it to be a pretty advanced video game.



Source

My opinion

It seems to me an excellent video game of the genre of platforms, it opens the doors to an excellent saga in which Donkey Kong will be known and will jump to the fame in the industry of the video games, in particular that saga of Donkey Kong in the decade of the 90's was one of the best as for the aspects previously analyzed, having as the starting point Donkey Kong Country, simply a work of art created by Rareware.

Recuerdo tirarme fácilmente unos 25 minutos haciendo esto nada mas jajajaja, me gustaba ver como cambiaban.

Jajajaja creo que todos tuvimos nuestros minutos cambiandolos jajaja

I agree with you about the graphics, the 3D style in a 2D world was really cool. That and fantastic music make this game memorable, I wish we would get some new Donkey Kong games. Nintendo is making new Metroid now, maybe DK is next.

Thanks for your comment, it is a video game that has not only good graphics but also the music also played an important role in the video game. A video game to remember.

This brings a lot of nostalgic memories for me, this game is one of my all-time favorites.

I think it is one of the best sagas of platform video games in a 2D environment of the 1990s. A work of art

This Donkey Kong Country video-game felt like a hybrid of Mario and Sonic in that it can be fast like Sonic at times but also sophisticated like Mario. I turned nine in 1994 and Donkey Kong was a fun game to play.


I knew about Donkey Kong from the 1980s games where Mario tries to save Peach from the giant ape. So, there were commercials for Donkey Kong Country in 1994. It was exciting. We started playing it. The game sort of reminded me of Super Mario World which came out on the Super Nintendo.


Mario World had Yoshi and a few different things for Mario but Donkey Kong Country had a rhino, train carts, etc. In some ways, Donkey Kong had a wider variety of things you could do plus it was 2 players on top of that.

I remember the rhinoceros, ostrich many allies that we can use in this game, in addition to the different Mario games this is one of the platform genre that starts a very important saga for the Nintendo company a real gem in video games.

That reminds me, around 1994 or after that, for the Super Nintendo, another exciting game was Mario RPG which was the precursor to what they called in future games Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Wii, etc. I was excited for Mario RPG and then later on I really enjoyed Paper Mario which is similar to Mario RPG.

Donkey Kong is a crazy good game. I remember playing it on my gameboy all the time...
