  Mario VS Donkey Kong
Words from the company:
After years of apparent good will, Mario and Donkey Kong are at it again -- this time on Game Boy Advance! Donkey Kong has stolen all the Mini-Mario toys from the Mario Toy Co., and now it's up to Mario to hunt down his long-time nemesis and retrieve the pilfered goods. He'll have to race through confounding levels, finding keys and releasing Mini Marios, before time runs out. Along the way he'll master new moves in order to scale the puzzling heights of six action-packed worlds!

• Leap, climb, and battle through increasingly difficult levels as you use switches, conveyor belts, hammers and other tools to save the day.
• A unique mix of action and puzzle gameplay elements will challenge your brain as well as your reflexes!
• Shy Guys, Piranha Plants, Bob-ombs, and other classic Mushroom Kingdom baddies stand between Mario and his goal.
• Before battling Donkey Kong at the end of each world, you'll have to collect all the Mini-Marios and lead them to safety.
Mario has always been more athletic than his somewhat portly appearance would have you believe, but he really struts his stuff in Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Mario backflips high into the air, walks on his hands, and even spins on gymnastics bars. You'll have to master all of Mario's new moves to save all of the Mini-Mario toys.

Once you've collected all of the Mini-Mario toys in a world, you then have to lead them into a toy box in a follow-the-leader game. The Mini-Marios will follow big Mario anywhere -- even if it means falling to their demise. Safely guiding them into the toy box is a tough task which will require you to overcome both action and puzzle challenges.

Even with the Mini-Marios safely tucked away, Mario's mission in each world is not done until he goes toe-to-toe with Donkey Kong. The big ape may not be the smartest enemy Mario's ever faced, but he sure is strong!

The Review:
Mario and Donkey Kong are characters that have been with us through various platforms of gaming for decades. Now Nintendo came up with and dual role game where Mario is pit against Donkey Kong.

The game play is as in previous games of this type where Mario has to flip and jump and turn switches for walls to appear and disappear in order to save the mini Marios. The game is quite a lot of fun and mind boggling sometimes trying to figure out the puzzle and there comes the challenge.

I found this game to be extra fun and it is hard to put down which tells me that kids will play for hours on this one. I recommend Mario VS Donkey Kong to one and all for the Game Boy Advance
