The levels in A Tribute To Donkey Kong Country aren't exactly like the original game, but they're very similar. The goal remains the same, however: get to the end safely and try to get all the bananas on the way. You'll also find red balloons, barrels, and tires.
The most striking part of A Tribute To Donkey Kong Country is its graphics powered by Unreal Engine 3. The game looks stunning, and although at times the levels are a little dark, there is a world of difference between these graphics and those of the original 2D version.
A Tribute To Donkey Kong Country is a great platform game, and while it's still in an early stage of development, it's a fun experience nonetheless.
