    Is there any way to get the Arcade game "Donkey Kong" on my R4?

    Please provide instructions, if necessary.

    If not, I would like to know how to get it on my computer?
    WITHOUT having to download another program just to play it.

    There's a version of MAME for the DS called MarcaDS (I think that was it's name), downloading that and the appropriate arcade roms would allow you to play it on the DS. I've never been able to get it to work though. The only way to play it on your computer would be to download an emulator for it.

    MAME is about the best way to play it on the computer...

    MarcaDS runs Donkey Kong perfectly, but unfortunately it has no sound.

    My recomendation would be to get the nes rom then run that on a nes emu on your ds...I'm almost positive its the EXACT same thing considering
    so i think its exactly the same... just need a nes emu!

    I do believe the NES version is missing some levels from the original Arcade version.

    hahaha, I've seen some crap posters in my day but this Finnigan X fellow is something else


    The NES port is good, but it's not the whole arcade game. Really a shame.

    When there's only four stages, missing one at all is a quarter of the game being missing.

    I'd just say get the Gameboy version. It has all four original stages, and then many many more on top of that.

    If I remember correctly, wasn't the Coleco version missing the pie factory? Just wondering how sharp my memory is... Other than that, I remember it being a pretty close port.

    There was only 3 stages too in the Colecovision version, the same ones that are in the NES version.

    I agree, play the GB version. If you ever played the Mario vs DK games on GBA or DS, it'll feel familiar. There's about 100 stages I think.
