Castle Kong

Castle Kong is Drowning Monkeys homage to what we consider the best game ever made: Donkey Kong.

What makes the golden age of arcade gaming so fun is a simple concept: 1 coin, 3 lives. play till you die or hit the kill screen, and set a high score.

And that's what Castle Kong is all about. Just like the game it's based on, CK will be a ruthless, 4 stage, 22 level romp as you play PauperBoy, a young kid who sets out to save PrincessGirl from the evil clutches of BaronMan.

Unlike it's predecessors, we leverage the power of connectivity to host tournaments (with a championship!), verify high scores, and have a global leaderboard.
