Gamelog Entry #2
Just as soon as I think I'm getting good at this game, the game becomes more difficult. I got better at rolling and then jumping which makes the monkey leap further and is necessary to get further in the game. It is interesting to see the different backgrounds for the levels. While going through each stage, it's fun to try and earn extra lives by collecting 100 bananas, bundles are worth 10 bananas. Some of the levels were really hard and took me numerous tries to complete.
The graphics are good for a 2D Super Nintendo game and each level has different backgrounds. The villains I fight along the way change each stage and move and shoot, which makes it hard to get passed them. It is frustrating when there are so many obstacles and such little room for mistakes. The bonus rounds are fun and change from destroying all the bad guys to collecting all the stars. The controls involve a lot of jumping, climbing, walking, and running. It is easy to bump into something or make a mistake, even for my friend who has more experience with the game. If I could change the game I would add more bananas and those special boxes which make the player invincible for awhile.
