    Yes it's another infinite-runner, just with a Donkey Kong-esque theme, but it's still provides enough entertainment to be worth a recommendation. The things you would expect to find from an infinite-runner, like an emphasis on completable tasks and collecting currency in game, are all here, but with a larger emphasis on platforming and a healthy difficulty level.

    The platforming helps

    The platforming helps sell the Donkey Kong theme. I really can't tell if you if it's paying homage to the series or just ripping it off, but it's theme is made better thanks to the great graphics. It's not the most original game out there, but it does enough unique things on it's own to be worth a recommendation. It's a simple game and not one that is going to be very impressive to anyone who's experienced the genre already, but it's still fun. Overall I give it a 7.5/10=Good.

    This good-looking homage to the Donkey Kong is a fine addition to the endless-runner genre, but don't go expecting any daring innovation to accompany those lush graphics.

    Endless runners are fun and the vibrant Banana Kong is no exception. Still, without repetitive reminders of missions, the game never elevates itself to a more addictive experience. Banana Kong shows how important it is to always dangle a reward in front of the player. Without it, all that running is monkey business. No offense, Kong.

    Definitely not a surprise and quite simple. Maybe it's not very original, but we'll find here a reasonable amount of fun and platforming for a reasonable price.
