(Note played on snes classic, switch and wii u not 3ds sorry) DKC is a classic no doubt about it. The graphics were revolutionary and while they are very pixely they are still nice to look at. David Wise knocked it out of the park with the sound track which is probably my favorite aspect of the game, as every track fits the level theme to a T and is a great bop in it's own right. The level design is also superb using the environment as platforms giving the game a grounded feel. There are secrets galore that are helpful for extra lives and such but not overly satisfying. Animal buddies and mine carts provide needed variety to the gameplay. The game has many level themes including jungles, factories, blizzards e.t.c but there is a bit over reliance on cave levels. The one issue I have is that the roll move is slightly stiff but thats only noticeable due to playing DKCTF. The bosses aren't great besides the really good final boss. DKC does show its age but it's a game worth playing for platformer fans wanting a challenge

One of the best looking games on the SNES is now one of the best looking Virtual Console titles on New 3DS. Fantastic music adds to the appeal and the gameplay remains fun as you work your way through the variety of levels either just to see the ending or replaying in order to get 101* completion. Donkey Kong Country is another highly enjoyable download for the New 3DS.
