Shack's Arcade Corner: Donkey Kong 3

Greg Burke is back with another episode about a classic arcade game. 


This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we take a look at Donkey Kong 3. The arcade cabinet was developed and published by Nintendo in 1983. The game introduced a new protagonist named Stanley, a greenhouse owner. This was a step away from our favorite plumber Mario, but the game was still super fun. Players had to save Stanley's plants by spraying bug spray at Donkey Kong to push him through the ceiling. It actually borrowed some of its gameplay mechanics from another Nintendo arcade game, Space Firebird. Donkey Kong 3 had great sound effects and music. The arcade cabinet had that classic Nintendo style. Check out this video to learn more about Donkey Kong 3.
