The game that helped to reinvigorate the video game industry in the west, Donkey Kong, is being reimagined by Monaco indie studio Drowning Monkeys Games with their new game Castle Kong.

Castle Kong, a homage to the classic Nintendo arcade game, Donkey Kong, is released by Drowning Monkeys Games, a veteran led experienced developer, on PC Steam (Link), on June 4th 2020 followed on Nintendo Switch on July 4th 2020. For a limited time, the game will be available with a 33% discount – $10.04/€8.70/£8.03 on both platforms (normal price $14.99/€12.99/£11.99).

Simplicity Rules
Mirroring the full retro feel, ambience and addictive qualities of the original classic, Castle Kong truly transports the gamer back to delight in some of the challenges, moreish gaming appeal and arcade platforming that you will be coming back for more. 22 levels traversing through four different stages, with just 3 lives to complete your epic quest.

With Castle Kong coming to Steam on June 4th (exactly one month before Switch’s launch on July 4th), Drowning Monkeys Games has offered a $5000 bounty reward, as well as many other runner up prizes. Here’s how to win:

Play and Win
