Mario Vs. Donkey Kong (JP) is a sub-series of puzzle-platformers developed by Nintendo Software Technology. In many ways, they are the successor to Donkey Kong '94. Almost every game in the series plays on a 2D plane similar to the Lemmings with the goal to get the Minis to the end. The only deviator is Mario and Donkey: Minis on the Move, which plays more like a Pipe Mania game, focusing on the top down perspective instead of sidescrolling, though being 3D.
