Play the classic Donkey Kong game online for free. In addition to the goal of saving Pauline, the player has a score. Points are awarded for the following: leaping over obstacles, destroying objects with a hammer power-up, collecting items such as hats, parasols, and purses, removing rivets from platforms, and completing each stage according to a steadily decreasing bonus counter. The player starts with three lives with a bonus life awarded at 7,000 points. A life is lost when Mario touches Donkey Kong or any enemy object, falls too far, or lets the bonus counter reach zero. The game ends when all lives are lost.
