The main character of Donkey Kong is a big gorilla called Donkey Kong. He has to battle his enemies and avoid obstacles in order to save a damsel in distress. The goal of the game is for Donkey Kong to reach the top of the level and rescue the lady. To do this, you have to help Donkey Kong jump over barrels, avoid fireballs and climb higher and higher until he reaches the top.
