Donkey Kong 3 is an arcade game that features Donkey Kong and Stanley. Stanley is a bugman that comes to defeat Donkey Kong on the account that he broke into his greenhouse. Stanley will now have to use his bug spray to not only defeat Donkey Kong, but also kill all the bugs that DK let in. This is the first Donkey Kong game that doesn't feature Mario, and is the first one not to be a direct platform game, which could have led to its unsuccessful sells. Instead of being a platform game, it was rather a shooting game. It was ported to the e-Reader in Donkey Kong 3-e


Help Stanley get rid of Donkey Kong, and the bugs by using his bug spray, if Donkey Kong comes down, or get touched by a bug, you will lose a life.


  • This is the last Donkey Kong game until 1994.
