Donkey Kong is one of 18-Volt's microgames in WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase. It returns in WarioWare Gold as one of 9-Volt's microgames. It is set in the game of the same name.


Donkey Kong throws two barrels which the player must tap in order to destroy. If one touches Mario, the game is lost. If the barrels are destroyed, Mario will be able to climb to the top and reach Pauline, thus winning the game. In WarioWare Gold, the player must protect Mario from barrels and Fireballs.

  • 2nd level difficulty: There are four barrels already present at the start.
