Donkey Kong Land (GBC) – Free and unblocked game (NO ROM) to play online
Donkey Kong is one of the icons in arcade games and Donkey Kong Land (AKA Super Donkey Kong GB in Japan) is one of the fun 2D platform video games ported for handhelds. The game was released in 1995 for the Game Boy. It was developed by Rare and published by Nintendo.
Donkey Kong Land gives you pretty much the same action that players loved coming from Donkey Kong Country, the SNES release. The goal in this game is also pretty much the same – you need to go through all 30 levels to complete the game.
Along the way you get to defeat Kremlings and collect bananas, of course. The levels are split across four worlds. And as usual, you need to defeat a boss at the end of each area.
The locations in Donkey Kong Land are pretty varied which make the gaming environment really interesting. Other than the usual underwater and jungle stages, there are also new places to roam around and visit. Sometimes you’ll find yourself jumping on platforms in the clouds and there’s even a stage where you’re on a pirate ship.
Everyone loved the colorful and at times funky graphics of Donkey Kong on the full size screen. So, how does the beloved ape fare on the Game Boy? Well, you shouldn’t expect bright colors – this is Game Boy not GBC after all.
However, Rare, the game’s developer, did quite a good job porting the details into a smaller handheld screen.
Donkey Kong still walks, jumps, swims, and sits down to scratch his head in pretty much the same way as he does in the big screen. Now that is definitely splendid work right there.

Some of K. Rool’s minions have also made it across to this platform. But you should also expect to face new enemies as well. For instance there’s Hogwash – he’s a flying pig. And then there’s Swirlwinds, those small whirlwinds that you can jump on top of to reach items way up on the screen.
The only downside to porting such a colorful game to a small monochrome screen is that sometimes the bad guys are kind of hard to spot. You’ll just have to pay attention to the details or else get caught by surprise.
Donkey Kong Land game has been ported to Game Boy (this version) and Nintendo Virtual Console.
