Sometimes you do not see the forest from louder trees. Some games are perfect for a Remaster, such as Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat.
The current situation that prevails in our world has also advantages. Since there is hardly interesting games for me, but time in abundance, I’m increasingly involved with old games. Therefore, at the weekend I was once again the problem: what should I play? So fix a look at the collection thrown and fast I found it. Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat immediately spoke me and immediately I knew why I loved the title first on the Gamecube and then on the Wii. Fast uncomplicated action and on the GameCube with the Donkey Konga controller (DK-Bongos) even a bit refreshing than other genre representative.
Okay, there are certainly missing some elements that make the current games with the shipping monkeys so playful, but Jungle Beat is just a completely different number. Actually, it’s all about collecting as many bananas as possible and to scurry without prejudice to the levels to achieve a new highscore. But the presentation and control make the arcade-densely pleasure a special experience. Actually, I just wanted to jump around a bit and have fun, but within a very short time, the success of the game unfolded and before I worried were four hours.
Neither the gameplay is particularly demanding, nor can the graphics convince today, but it’s just a lot of fun. It is noteworthy, however, that the fell effects are an absolute highlight even after 15 years. In addition, Donkey Kong seems to have been a blueplause for the developers in some way. You just have to keep running in mind, how many elements Nintendo has taken over for other games such as Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker or Super Mario Galaxy.
What brings me to the question: Why does Nintendo do not released a general-overhaul version of Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat for the Switch? So far, the Japanese company has brought a pretty much greater game of Wii U on the switch and with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD and Super Mario Galaxy are already getting first games of the Wii for the hybrid console. Why not this game? Especially in relation to Jungle Beat, the switch would be more than offering. While there is no DK Bongos, with which one can drive his neighbors into madness, but through the two removable Joy-cons one should simply be able to take over the control scheme of the Wii version. For this you donate the game a slightly higher resolution and 60fps and millions of players could enjoy this extraordinary Jump’n’Run.
But since Nintendo Donkey Kong is currently more likely to be treated somewhat, that will probably remain a desire to stay. The last new game with the primates dated from the year 2014, if one goes off the extension Donkey Kong Adventure for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle once. Is it actually time for a monkey-strong appearance, right?
