Donkey Kong Junior is a 1982 arcade-style platform video game by Nintendo. The player controls DKJ and has to rescue Donkey Kong from Mario, who had captured him. There are a total of four levels, each with a somewhat different theme. DKJ can move and jump for the most part, but can also climb up vines.
SAVE THE BIG APE!
Mario has gone stark raving bonkers and locked your lovable father, Donkey Kong, in a cage. You must steal the keys to the cage from that tyrant Mario, and set your papa free. But it’s not so easy. Mario plays tough. This off-the-wall monkey business will have you going bananas.
GAME PLAY: The jungle is full of vines and chains to climb on but watch out for the ape-eating Snapjaws, Nitpickers, and Sparks as you work your way to the key that I will unlock the way to freedom for your father. Moving islands and springboards . increase the challenge. Be careful! Watch your footing! Try to pick some fruit along the way to get extra points. Or use it to bonk the pesky critters below for even more points. Clear the fourth and most difficult round of this jungle adventure and Donkey Kong is free at last.
