Donkey Kong has kidnapped Pauline and escaped to the top of a construction site. Mario has to come to her rescue, chasing the ape across the land to rescue his beloved.

The first four stages are based on the original arcade game. In the stages that follow, Donkey Kong escapes through a locked door and Mario must find the key and carry it back to the door within the time limit, using bridges, ladders, switches and more to traverse the terrain.

Every four levels you will have to battle Donkey Kong, either climbing the stage to reach him or pelting him with barrels.
