I'm a fan of Donkey Kong Country on the snes, which this game is a miniaturized remake of. But although this game itself is great, I really can't recommend it for the gameboy, because to me the screen is just too small and this game clearly wasn't meant to be played on a gameboy.
Pros: Graphics look amazing for the gameboy. Donkey and diddy are nicely animated and overall the game looks beautiful. Like in the original, gameplay is amazing, with lots of items to collect and hours of fun. The music is pretty good considering it's being pumped through the game boy's tiny speaker.
Cons: When I say that the screen feels to small, I mean that it feels like too much stuff is packed into a small space. Playing the game quickly makes me nauseated, which isn't a problem with my other gameboy games.
My overall recommendation: If you must have donkey kong country on the go, go ahead and get it. I hate to say it, but otherwise you'd be better off buying the SNES version.
