Makes up for Donkey Kong. Pretty good, actually.

Screen Shots

Donkey Kong Junior is actually not too bad - it's easily the best Coleco game for the Intellivision. Graphics are good, and the sound isn't too bad, either. In fact, I actually kind of like this game! It has three of the screens - Vines, Chains, and Jumpboard - only the Hideout level is missing. Best Score: 38700 [Start: Skill Level 1]

Donkey Kong Junior Label (Coleco) Coleco N/A 1983 U.S.A. Glossy black label; game logo right side up on edge; word wraps: of, Nintendo, U.S.A., Inc., 1983, New

Title Screen Typically generic Coleco title screen.
Vines The first screen is nicely rendered, but when baby Kong is gripping two vines, you get a lot of flicker.
Chains The easiest of the boards.
Jumpboard This level is pretty tough and frustrating. Timing the springboard leap is pretty tricky.
