With Temple Run 2 whipping endless runner fans into a inevitably doomed frenzy, FDG Entertainment gets ready to release Banana Kong, game that's just a Nintendo license away from being a Donkey Kong Country spin-off.
FDG and developer Gamaga call Banana Kong a cross between Donkey Kong Country and Sonic the Hedgehog. While that second one is a bit of a stretch, the similarities between Nintendo's main monkey adventure and this game are rather extensive. You've got the gorilla, banana collecting, the jungle theme and so on. And just when the game starts to diverge from its inspiration, BAM—you're riding a boar.
This is what happens, Nintendo! You don't make mobile games, other game companies are going to make them for you.
Banana Kong hits iTunes on Thursday for $.99.
