bonus: More Donkey Kong

 

I always liked DK for 2600 but a lot of folks didn't think it quite held up. Several homebrew attempts have been made, and one of those is Donkey Kong VCS which was shown off at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo.

 

so, for a bonus:

 

**Play Donkey Kong VCS and post a score (+1)

 

**Get the high score for the week (+2)

 

**Get 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place (+1)

 

(total of 3 bonus points possible)

I'm surprised I got this far. I've always been wretched at this (and most Nintendo platform games).

 

Score: 55,100

Quick first score for the moment:

 

Donkey Kong, 1BB: 43,800.

 

Still way below my personal best from the 2013 season (71k). I hope I will have time to try and improve...

So I guess I'm not smart enough to pass the second screen. None of the ladders on the top row let you climb? Is the right one random or something?

You don't get to the top of the screen. On each floor, you must walk over each of the little segments that disappears as you walk over them. Then the level is complete. Poor description on my part, but does that make sense?

The little segments will also disappear if you jump over them. Handy if there's a fireball on top of one of them. Also fun because if you jump over the last one, the screen ends with Mario frozen in the air, like the end of an 80's movie.

Small improvement: 83,300! Have to learn patience if I'm gonna get close to my PB of 165K.

They say that Coleco intentionally crippled their games on other consoles to make the ColecoVision look superior. While it might be true, it's kind of hard to say whether it was intentional with Donkey Kong. True it only has two levels and all that, but they only had 4k of space to work with as well so it could've just been technical limitations.

Huh, this game seems more difficult than I remember. I'd like to see a 4 level version of this game that keeps the 2 levels from this one.
