Mario Vs. Donkey Kong

For this month's "Maps of the Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to Peardian's Mario Vs. Donkey Kong (GBA) maps.

Besides being featured together in the Super Smash Bros. series, Nintendo characters have met each other a few times by way of cameos in each others' games.  But the two earliest franchise characters have competed and clashed a few times since the beginning, and continue to do so even in recent times.  Mario and Donkey Kong faced off in the first huge Nintendo game, named after Donkey Kong himself, before their futures split into two distinct franchises.  Mario may be Nintendo's main man, yet Donkey Kong was always nearby, ready for some kart racing, or other competitive sports, or some of the annual parties.  Whether or not the current Donkey Kong was DK Jr. and that Cranky Kong was the original DK is beside the point - the clash of Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a constant in the Nintendo universe.  Or at least, revisited, reenacted, repackaged and replayed...

It comes as no surprise that there would eventually be a game named as such - Mario Vs. Donkey Kong on the GBA is a relatively recent adventure that pits, well, Mario against Donkey Kong.  Looking to reclaim toys stolen from the big ape, Mario (now apparently in the toy business) must make his way through more than a hundred puzzlicious rooms!  Expanding upon the platforming puzzle elements first seen in the Super Game Boy release of Donkey Kong in 1994, the game is an incredible challenge to work through!  Cue my standard line about needing maps: well, you'll need all the help you can get, and Peardian (resident Mario mapper and multi-Mapmaker of the Month) at least provides these.  Timing your jumps in Expert Stage x-8? You're on your own there!

So to recognize the effort put into making these maps from a modern classic, Peardian's Mario Vs. Donkey Kong maps will be known as's Maps of the Month for March 2008.

The pre-rendered sprites look ugly.


Dot? Dot. Dot!
