Try out the free Mario vs. Donkey Kong demo and save the Mini-Marios!

In a caper for the ages, a toy-crazed Donkey Kong has stolen all the Mini-Marios. C’mon, big guy, not cool!

In the Mario vs. Donkey Kong™ game, you’ll guide Mario to run, jump, and backflip through levels that will also test your puzzle-solving skills. See, this isn’t just about speeding your way through a level. You’ll need to be mindful of puzzling doodads, like Color Switches and Warp Boxes, and be careful of treacherous obstacles. The script will then flip for the Mini-Mario levels—in these levels, you’ll guide around the adorable Mini-Marios and make sure they reach the safety of their Toy box. Each world will then culminate in a showdown with Donkey Kong himself!

To get started, please watch the video for a look at some of the contraptions and levels you’ll find in the game. Or you can always just try it out yourself …
