Game Over Screens appear after the Kongs have lost all their lives. They can only be closed by the Kong who used the last life (i.e. if player 2 uses up their lives). In Donkey Kong 64, the Game Over occurs if the player decides to quit or fails to shutdown King K. Rool's Blast-O-Matic machine after the countdown timer runs out.
