God only knows how many quarters the Donkey Kong game stole from me in my youth. But now we have the chance to play the original right here, for free, and with unlimited lives! This of course means that you’ll be able to waste an infinite amount of time, so prepare yourself.
Now, there are three things you need to know:
- The game starts immediately when you load the page. Sorry, but I don’t know how to prevent that – I’m posting it as I’ve found it.
- There is sound, so if you’re at work you might want to turn your speakers down otherwise everyone around you will be coming over to play Donkey Kong.
- You use the arrow keys to move, and spacebar to jump. But I’ve found that you may need to click on the game one time with your mouse before the keys work.
I’m also going to try to find more of these classic games and load them up here on OMB so that I can find them later when I want to play them, so keep an eye out.
