I can kind of understand where the negative vibes for this game come from, but this game, despite having almost NOTHING to do with the first two DKs other than the big ape being in it, is very fun to play. You control a bug exterminator whose job is to spray DK up to the top of the screen, while avoiding the mean, nasty bugs that are out to get you. You can get a power up (a more powerful sprayer) once you get DK high enough on the screen to help you out. This game follows the classic arcade formula perfectly: start off easy and fun, then introduce more challenging gameplay aspects to the better gamers. Not my favourite arcade translation of all time, but still pretty damn good.
