Review: Castle Kong (Switch eShop) Castle10

Developed and published by Drowning Monkey Games, and public relations by PR Hound, Castle Kong is a homage to classic arcade games of the 80's and Donkey Kong Arcade in particular, but does it live up to the giant Kong of legend? Not quite, but it is still a worthwhile title to pick up and here's why:

Review: Castle Kong (Switch eShop) Castle11

The gameplay is quite simple, but somewhat entertaining and plays quite similarly to the old-school classic arcade game Donkey Kong. There are some tweaks and changes to the formula that make the game feel at least somewhat unique, but overall it's a pretty similar title. The controls are good and easy to learn and the game's difficulty is also well-balanced which is always a good thing.

The visual presentation in Castle Kong is pretty good looking and the soundtrack fits the game to a tee. The sound effects are also varied and work well with the soundtrack. Overall the audiovisual presentation is slightly above par.

Review: Castle Kong (Switch eShop) Castle12

Bottom-Line: With decent gameplay, great controls, and an above average audiovisual presentation, Castle Kong is a relatively enjoyable Donkey Kong arcade clone that feels right at home on the Switch and as such we give the game a decent level of recommendation.

@Towafan7 Brilliant review, as always. victory

...huh? You were expecting an interjection from Donkey Kong Sr.? Well... I asked him, but he yelled at me and said he "can't be expected to liven up EVERY thread on this gosh darn tooted inter-thing-a-ma-job", and then he ranted something about blueberry muffins... so he's busy at the moment. Uh... I think... scratch
