Drowning Monkey Games is over the moon and bursting with excitement to announce the forthcoming release of Castle Kong. Their very retro, ‘homage’ inspired title of a classic that many oldies will fondly remember and newbies certainly won’t. Releasing for Nintendo Switch on the 25th of February, for $6.99 / £5.99 GBP / €6.99, this ‘flashback’ pixelated title will take gamers back in time, literally!

Put simply, Castle Kong is a celebration to the classic Nintendo arcade game, Donkey Kong, recreating the same kind of looks, retro graphical world and stages, while presenting completely new addictive challenges that were presented in bygone times. 22 levels traversing four different stages, with just 3 lives to complete your epic quest.

Honestly, I find Castle Kong an unusual creature. The sheer level of blatant callbacks is insane. Even the font is reminiscent of old school Nintendo games. Also, the fact that this is called Castle Kong is bizarre. I cannot remember the last time that happened. Drop your thoughts in the comments below of other blatant homages in gaming.
