Wht da!

I always thought this was a rather good conversion but after playing the arcade game more lately i've come to the conclusion it's really not. :)

Good score, i think i will leave it at that. :)

Yes, the controls are a little bulky. You can't do a jump right after a jump. That sucks a bit. But it's better than the Atari version (says the DK noob ;) ).

it's gotta be better than the Intellivision version too. cheeky

many people speak very lowly of the Atari version but I don't think it's bad at all.  it does totally lose the feel of the original which is probably the main reason for complaints.  but on it's own merit I find it to be a very playable game & always liked it growing up.

even when the highest difficulty is mastered it is still a challenge to keep going because it loops back to the slower levels, throwing off your timing, and no extra lives are available so it can be quite the challenge to try for huge scores.
