Amusing, but too simple to be worth much time.

The Good

As a way to waste a minute, Donkey is nice. The controls are very simple--just one button. That the game progresses in difficulty as you proceed is nice as well.

The Bad

There's really nothing to hold your attention. While the difficulty does increase as the game progresses, it resets every few donkeys, so it doesn't stay at all difficult. Furthermore, Donkey only has one goal, and that goal just isn't interesting enough to be worth pursuing for more than a minute or so.

The Bottom Line

While interesting as a look at what Bill Gates was doing back in 1981, Donkey just isn't good enough a game to merit more than a passing glance.
