A classic platform/run n jump game sequel to nintendo's all-time classic arcade game where Mario now cast as the villain (the only Mario game in which this occurred) and Donkey Kong the captured victim. Donkey Kong's son, DK Junior, must rescue his captured father from Mario's clutches by climbing and jumping his way over vines, chains and platforms before he can reach his father. Junior has to race against time while avoiding the horrible Snap Jaws, Nitpickers, and Sparks released by Mario. Like the original, Donkey Kong Junior features 4 different stages, but in the US version, one or both of the middle stages are omitted in the first 3 levels. In the Japanese versions, all 4 stages are played in their logical order.
Note: Both version were played. Japanese version - no cheats were used. The US version - cheats were used which starts at 8:51. The US version was longer and harder than the Japanese version. The game is pretty much endless. I killed myself afterwards.
