My friends got me this super sweet Donkey Kong Jenga for Christmas:
"How High Can You Get?"
The game is played in one of two ways: either by following the traditional rules of the game or by using the included Spinner to play Donkey Kong-style!
"Play classic Jenga or use the Spinner and play custom Donkey Kong rules!"
Up to 4 players take turns on the Spinner which determines how many Jenga block “Girders” to remove from the stack and how many Girders the player’s Mario climbs at the end of each turn.
Each of the 4 Mario game pieces are attached to pegs which can then be inserted into the holes at the ends of the Jenga blocks, giving the illusion of Mario climbing the construction site!
"Donkey Kong Jenga Girders, Mario, Pauline, and DK!"
The goal is to reach the top of the stack and save Pauline from that crazy ape, Donkey Kong, yet again. The player that reaches the top or is closest to the top when the stack falls wins.
Players can strategically remove Girders out from under the other players’ Mario game pieces to keep their opponents from reaching the top first!
"Donkey Kong + Jenga = Donkey Kong Jenga"
A brilliant combination really, marrying these two classic games together!

Check out this cool video trailer for a playable, fan-made
Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link First Person Shooter:
Neat idea taking Link into the FPS realm of gaming a la Samus in
Metroid Prime. The old school, 8-bit graphics and sound add to the charm a great deal; I especially like the Title Screen, which at first glance looks just like the original game until the 3D camera begins moving about.
Check out the game itself
here up to the first Boss fight for free, although you’ll need to download the Unity Web Player first.
