Donkey Kong (Original) Full Playthrough (JP Arcade Version)
This is emulated with MAME 0.119+. The American version only has the 1st and last levels, but the Japanese version also has the 2nd and 3rd. The name of this ROM is “Japan set 1”.
There were a couple mistakes, but this was quick to complete compared to my many other videos. I’m sorry if my lack of skill in this game doesn’t please you enough.
HOW HIGH CAN YOU GET?
LEVEL 1: 25m: Jump over barrels, or smash them with hammers, and climb ladders to reach Pauline.
LEVEL 2: 50m: Reach Donkey Kong’s floor by climbing moving ladders and passing conveyer belts while avoiding fires, pies, and Donkey Kong, himself.
LEVEL 3: 75m: Use elevators and ladders while avoiding fires and springboards to reach Pauline’s floor.
LEVEL 4: 100m: Use ladders to climb and break all of the pegs, while avoiding or destroying puffy flames with hammers.. Once you break all of the pegs, Donkey Kong will fall, and Jumpman, a.k.a. Mario, will be reunited for good.
And then the game starts RIGHT over again… *sigh*
In Levels 2 – 4, you can collect items for extra points. These are Pauline’s sunhat, umbrella, and purse. The Bonus at the top-right corner of the screen is also a time limit. 1 second of time multiplied by 100 represents the Bonus points you get after beating the level. If the Bonus hits 000, you die!
In Levels 1 & 4, hammers will let you break barrels in Level 1, and flames in Level 4 for a few seconds. However, you can’t jump with them, and you can’t climb ladders with them. Because of how they’re set up in those levels, you can’t even use them to hit Donkey Kong if you tried. Notice how the flames in Level 4 turn blue when you grab a hammer. It’s as if you were Pac-Man and they were Ghosts.

WOW! Over 39,000 views! I wasn’t expecting this to do so well. Thanks, everyone!
HOLY CRAP! Over 132,000 views! I wonder if it has to do with that… particularly infamous movie known as Pixels, hmmmm…?
Oh well. Love it or hate it, if you’re trying to figure out where Donkey Kong came from in that movie, look no further. The things you see the characters do to get through this game in that movie may end up being different from what you see out of the game itself, here.
OVER 424,000 VIEWS?! Wow… Thanks, Pixels.
OVER 1 MILLION VIEWS!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! THIS IS NO DOUBT MY HIGHEST-VIEWED VIDEO EVER!
OVER 1.5 MILLION VIEWS!!!!!
4/3/16 UPDATE: Since this video’s proven to be an extremely popular video thanks to the game’s appearance in Pixels, I may consider making quick playthroughs of some of the other arcade games that also showed up in that movie. I’m not really interested in seeing the movie, itself, though, but I might change my mind later.
OVER 2 MILLION VIEWS!!!!!!
And not only that, as of this post of 7/9/16, this, the original Donkey Kong arcade game, is now officially over 35 years old! CONGRATULATIONS!
OVER 3.1 MILLION VIEWS?! How is this still going so well?!
OH MY GOD, OVER 4.2 MILLION VIEWS?!
7.3 MILLION VIEWS! THIS IS STILL GOING?!
AHHHH! 8.7 MILLION VIEWS!!!
That’s it! I’m planning a new playthrough of this game. And it will show off ALL of the levels with NO DEATHS!
7/7/18 UPDATE: Check out my newest run of the American version, here!:
OVER 10 MILLION VIEWS?! HOW IS IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE FOR ME?!
7/9/21 UPDATE: OVER 13 MILLIONS VIEWS! This date marks the 40th Anniversary of Donkey Kong! (And by extension, Mario the Jumpman!)
Thanks for watching, everyone!

Donkey Kong (???????, Donki Kongu?) is an arcade game developed by Nintendo, released in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles. In it, Jumpman (now known as Mario) must rescue a damsel in distress, Lady (now known as Pauline), from a giant ape named Donkey Kong. The hero and ape later became two of Nintendo’s most popular characters.
The game was the latest in a series of efforts by Nintendo to break into the North American market. Hiroshi Yamauchi, Nintendo’s president at the time, assigned the project to a first-time game designer named Shigeru Miyamoto. Drawing from a wide range of inspirations, including Popeye and King Kong, Miyamoto developed the scenario and designed the game alongside Nintendo’s chief engineer, Gunpei Yokoi. The two men broke new ground by using graphics as a means of characterization, including cut scenes to advance the game’s plot, and integrating multiple stages into the gameplay.
Despite initial misgivings on the part of Nintendo’s American staff, Donkey Kong proved a success in North America and Japan. Nintendo licensed the game to Coleco, who developed home console versions for numerous platforms. Other companies cloned Nintendo’s hit and avoided royalties altogether. Miyamoto’s characters appeared on cereal boxes, television cartoons, and dozens of other places. A court suit brought on by Universal City Studios, alleging Donkey Kong violated their trademark of King Kong, ultimately failed. The success of Donkey Kong and Nintendo’s win in the courtroom helped position the company to dominate the video game market in the 1980s and early 1990s.
Donkey Kong is one of the earliest examples of the platform game genre; it is sometimes said to be the first platform game, although it was preceded by Space Panic. In contrast to Space Panic, however, Donkey Kong was the first platform game to feature jumping, introducing the need to jump between gaps and over obstacles or approaching enemies, setting the template for the platform genre. Competitive video gamers and referees stress the game’s high level of difficulty compared to other classic arcade games. Winning the game requires patience and the ability to accurately time Jumpman’s ascent. In addition to presenting the goal of saving the Lady, the game also gives the player a score. Points are awarded for finishing screens; leaping over obstacles; destroying objects with a hammer power-up; collecting items such as hats, parasols, and purses (presumably belonging to the Lady/Pauline); and completing other tasks. The player typically receives three lives with a bonus awarded for the first 10,000 points, although this can be modified via the game’s built in DIP switches.
