Donkey Hoth T-shirt: How Cold Can You Get?
Now here is an arcade reboot that I can totally get behind. Donkey Kong gets the Hoth treatment as Han races to rescue Luke from the Wampa monster.

Donkey Kong Cake is Totally Bananas

Donkey Kong Cake is Totally Bananas
While I love both Donkey Kong and cake, I’m much more capable of finishing a cake than finishing the classic arcade game. I always used to get stuck around level three, and that was on a good day.

Donkey Kong Remade as Science Fiction & Fantasy Series

Donkey Kong Remade as Science Fiction & Fantasy Series
Whenever I get a chance, I like to dust off my arcade emulator and try to see if I can get any further at Donkey Kong than the first couple of levels. Even after all of these years, the game still kicks my ass every time.

Dad Hacks Donkey Kong So Daughter Can Play as the Damsel and Save Mario
What would you do if you introduced your daughter to Donkey Kong and she was disappointed that she couldn’t be the female and save Mario? Would you just say, oh well, that’s the way it is?

Donkey Kong Wall Decals Are Worth a Lot of Tokens

Donkey Kong Wall Decals Are Worth a Lot of Tokens
Igor Chak’s Donkey Kong wall shelf is one of the best game-themed furniture I’ve ever come across, but I bet it will be very expensive if it ever becomes a real product. If you’re as strapped for coins as I am, don’t worry.

Video Game Cookies: From Pixels to Pastries

Video Game Cookies: From Pixels to Pastries
If there’s two things in life I love, it’s video games and cookies. I mean, what’s not to like? Apparently, the guys over at Parchment Cookies have the same mentality, and have baked up some epic video game-inspired cookies for us to admire (and eat if we could afford them.)

Mechanical Donkey Kong: How Real Can You Get?

Mechanical Donkey Kong: How Real Can You Get?
We’ve featured some mechanical versions of arcade games in the past, but I think this is my new favorite. That’s because this real-world version of Donkey Kong is actually controlled by an NES gamepad. That just makes it that much more awesome.

Donkey Kong Wall Shelf Needs Barrel Bookends

Donkey Kong Wall Shelf Needs Barrel Bookends
After invading living rooms with his Space Invaders couch (which btw are now for sale), Igor Chak imagines the king of shelves, patterned after one of the most famous videogame stages ever made: the construction site aka Barrels stage from the legendary 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong.

Arcade Mash-up Prints Confuse and Amuse

Arcade Mash-up Prints Confuse and Amuse
Say the words Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Dig Dug, Centipede, Galaga or Joust, and you’ve just named some of my all-time favorite arcade games. So when I stumbled onto these unusual variants of these 1980s classics, I was at once befuddled and at the same time intrigued.

Videogame Ear Plugs Almost Make Me Want to Get My Ears Pierced

Videogame Ear Plugs Almost Make Me Want to Get My Ears Pierced
…but because I’m fine with my body’s aerodynamics as it is, I think I’ll just admire these plugs from a distance. No actually it’s because my tolerance for pain is so low – in fact I’m crying right now because of the terrible pain induced by typing.

Gamer Bathroom is Flush with Pixel Art

Gamer Bathroom is Flush with Pixel Art
Most bathrooms are pretty boring, sterile places, designed for the utility of brushing your teeth, washing your face, taking a bath, and using the toilet. But that doesn’t mean that a bathroom can’t be a fun place too – like this awesome video game themed bathroom from Technabob reader Gregory Pinzone.

Donkey King: Jumpman Goes Revolutionary

Donkey King: Jumpman Goes Revolutionary
What would Donkey Kong have looked like if it took place during the American Revolution? Well if this t-shirt is to be believed, DK himself was the King of England, and Jumpman was Georg(io) Washington, ready to liberate his new nation.

Donkey Kong Quilt… So That’s How Billy Mitchell Scores in Bed

Donkey Kong Quilt… So That’s How Billy Mitchell Scores in Bed
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a really cool video game inspired quilt, so I was happy when I saw this one, which looks just like the game screen from the original Donkey Kong.

N-Men: Nintendo Characters as the X-Men

N-Men: Nintendo Characters as the X-Men
Dedicated to saving the princess, one kingdom at a time. Shunned by plumbers and primates alike, but armed with pure hearts and insane platforming skills. Formed under the tutelage of Shigeru Miyamoto, they are the N-Men.

Tiny Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet Even Plays Pac-Man

Tiny Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet Even Plays Pac-Man
I’ve written about some tiny arcade cabinets before – even a Donkey Kong machine, but never one that was this accurate – and that actually plays. All it needs are tiny Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell dolls to go with it and it would be perfect.
