Donkey Kong 3 is the third Donkey Kong arcade game. It never became as popular as the earlier Donkey Kong titles, possibly due to the fact that it is more of a shooting game, compared to the original platformers. Another major difference between Donkey Kong 3 and the earlier games is that the main character is not Mario, but rather Stanley. The game was later referenced as a microgame in both WarioWare: Twisted! and WarioWare: Touched!.
Donkey Kong breaks into Stanley's greenhouse and goes to hang in the rafters where he stirs up nests of bugs, which will destroy Stanley's flowers in revenge. Armed with a can of fly spray, Stanley must destroy the bees and chase Donkey Kong away before he eats all five of his vegetables.
The game is very simplistic, requiring the player to gather points as the object rather than have any specific long-term goal in mind. There are three rounds, and once the player completes all three, they return to the first. Throughout the levels are scattered various enemies: Buzzbees, Beespies, Queen Buzzbees which shatter into deadly pieces when destroyed, Buttiflies, Beebombs, Vine Eaters, and Creepies. The bees attempt to steal Stanley's flowers, and the bees must be destroyed before reaching the plants. Donkey Kong himself hangs from two vines at the top of the screen. Spraying him drives him upwards and eventually off the screen to win the level. In the third stage, when he is defeated, his head is stuck in a beehive.
The second stage never appears in the first round. The third stage directly follows the first, but the second stage is included in all rounds following the first.
