Let me rephrase that: does a three-dimensional Donkey Kong with a little bit of Frogger count?

No. Donkey Kong is Donkey Kong. Congo Bongo is Congo Bongo. Frogger is Froggie... wait, what? :lol:

...okay, how's this:

 

 

Step 1: Sell your 2600.

Step 2: Buy a Colecovision with Module 1. You can still play your Atari games.

Step 3: Buy Coleco Donkey Kong.

 

 

Suddenly, you're playing a good Donkey Kong on the same system you play Atari games on!

Here I found a thread where you guys can chat about Congo Bongo. It's over 15 years old so bumping it should fit well with the recent necrobump debate.

ColecoVision Congo Bongo was an excellent translation and one of my favorite games to play. Whenever I'm playing that system, it always gets lots of playtime.

2600 Congo Bongo is, well, not great.

And yes. Colecovision DK is better then 2600 DK. But NES DK is better then ColecoVision DK.

I agree, that font is horrible. Every time I try to read something he posts, I feel like I'm going to get a headache. Luckily, I don't miss anything by skipping over his posts. :P

So just use the default font.

 

 

Back to the real subject, the original Coleco DK is the only on available on a cartridge, and probably will always be the only one available on a cartridge (Nintendo gets a little cease-and-desist-y when you use their properties without permission). DK VCS looks amazing, but I think DK Arcade is more fun to play. If you want to play either of 'em on your 2600, you'll need a Harmony Cart.
