    Featuring slick cartoon graphics, upgradeable power-ups, and a multi-tiered playing surface, Banana Kong is a light-hearted addition whose fruity stinginess is its biggest fault.

    It's not the most original endless runner out there, but Banana Kong does everything right, being a funny, good-looking game available at a low price.

    It's tough to resist the charm of Banana Kong and while it's never going to be as exceptional as the Donkey Kong Country series, it's a warm, Endless Runner focused alternative.

    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.

    Banana Kong is an enjoyable auto-runner, but it doesn't bring anything new to the table.

    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.

    There are other endless runners that have done it all better, faster and with more polish.

    Yes it's another infinite-runner, just with a Donkey Kong-esque theme, but it's still provides enough entertainment to be worth aYes 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 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.
