Donkey Kong is one of the most famous games developed by Nintendo, and is an early example of the platform genre. It was the first game designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced “Jumpman,” who would later go on to become Miyamoto’s most famous character and Nintendo’s mascot, Mario.  For the evolution of arcade, Donkey Kong was revolutionary as it is the first example of a complete narrative told in video game form which utilizes cut scenes to advance it’s plot.
