EPISODE 37: DONKEY KONG

Back when this full-grown podcaster was but a wee audio sprout, there were the BIG THREE GAMES that were integral to forming his arcading self: Frogger and Pac-Man were two of them, both of which we have talked about on this show. And now, we look at the third of the triumvirate:

DONKEY KONG – Coleco, 1981.

 Does this port live up to the thrill of the arcade version? Does the story of a little Italian plumber (who, in this game, is actually a carpenter because…reasons) chasing down a homicidal gorilla still hold up? Did it EVER make any sense?

These questions and more will be answered this week. So put down your bowl of Crunch Berries and DVD collection of the Donkey Kong cartoon show and join us.

  1. Greetings, William! My name is Andrew Lister, and I’m the writer/producer of a local podcast called Shadowvane. I was given an opportunity to put together a panel of podcasters for a local gaming convention (QC Game Fest) on April 22nd, 2017. The event will take place at in Davenport at the River Center.

    I know your show Atari Bytes is more video gaming than tabletop (heck, mine is storytelling and not RPGs), but I wanted to reach out and see if you were at all interested by the idea of helping to be on the panel. I’m trying to reach out to local podcasters at the moment.

    If you are at all interested or want more information, shoot me an e-mail at Shadowvanecast@gmail.com!
