A newt took a chance and ate the wrong thing!

You can use a keyboard to play but a gamepad is recommended if you have one!


If the arrow controls don't work and it just moves the browser; try refreshing the browser, click on the game and THEN test the keys.

PLEASE let me know if you find any bugs. Thank you very much.

This is an amazing game. It's to Donkey Kong what Annalynn is to Pac man. Each character sprite has like, a thousand frames, and the mechanics are easy to learn and fun. Awesome job.

Solid game.

Can't wait for the difficult tilt-based game on Wii U. :-D

Lovely arcade game! I love the Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. inspirations at play here. Animation is excellent.

This is such a cute game! Love it!

This is an excellent game! I love the controls and art style. Don't stop making games EVER. :) 

what a gem! so much fun to play!

I love this game! Great!

This is a cute 'lil game, I rather enjoyed it. I'd like to see a longer version of it - maybe have it set up into scaling a few larger buildings, let you reuse some visuals while still giving a nice sense of scale (and more chance to build upon gimmicks and fun stuff.)

Pretty nice! I'd definitively reduce (or remove completely) the inertia, but other than that plays great!


Can you make a downloadable version?
