Donkey Kong Symbolism
So I was playing Donkey Kong the other night and notice a lot of objects in the game and I decided to look into it and see if I could figure out what they represent. This is what I came up with.
Wild Barrels-DK desire to be free from jumpman circus act
Blue Barrels-DK overall mood under jumpman care after years of abuse
Regular Barrels-DK never ending fight to get away from jumpman
Fireballs-Jumpman's desire to cause harm to DK
Oil can-The heated battle between jumpman and DK
Prizes-Represents Pauline's many *** toys
Springs-Pauline desire to have long metal things
Pies-Pauline desire to be creampied
hammer-Jumpman desire to nail something
so what do guys think my list is right or no?

Freud would have a field day here :)
The symbolism in the game of Donkey Kong was actually designed to throw off casual investigations. The simple and obvious interpretation - man's search for union with the feminine, fighting the monkey of his lower nature, and the elusive nature of the quest, eluding him like a mirage in the desert.
The true symbolism spans the entire DK ouvre, and contains many Moorish, Templar and Ismaeli concepts. S*x magic, full conscious control of physical and mental processes, time travel, and the ancient and living religion of a hidden goddess are all interwoven into the symbolism of Donkey Kong.
