We don’t need rescue from Donkey Kong, but we will take this rad Donkey Kong head wrap.

I’m pretty sure most of us reading this post spent hours upon hours trying to defeat the original Donkey Kong (NES).

While Donkey Kong paved the way for many console games to come (it was, after all, one of the first games with a plot line – can you believe that?), we do have some serious questions about the damsel in distress plot line. I mean, could Pauline not run away when DK wasn’t looking? Could she not make a break for it and meet Mario halfway?

We would like to propose a remake of this original Donkey Kong classic, updated from Pauline’s point of view, and for gamer girls who asked these same questions. Can you escape Donkey Kong’s grips before Mario struggles to make his way to you?
