Donkey Kong Jr. - 7/15/83
Game number two of the launch games. I have to admit that I've never been a fan of Donkey Kong Jr. The vines and the climbing has never been that exciting to me. One touch that I can appreciate about the game is the way your climbing speed changes based on the vines you are holding on to. Clinging to two vines is better when climbing, but you only want to be on one vine when climbing back down. This adds variety to a game that doesn't seem to have much of it. This is certainly a competent port, but just not one of my favorite games.
