Donkey Kong

From Wikipedia:

Donkey Kong is an arcade game that was released by Nintendo in 1981.

The game is an early example of the platform genre as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging obstacles. Mario (originally called Jumpman) must rescue a damsel in distress, Pauline, from a giant ape named Donkey Kong.

The hero and ape went on to become two of Nintendo's more popular characters. The game broke new ground by using graphics as a means of characterization, including cut scenes to advance the game's plot, and integrating multiple stages into the gameplay.
