When we reported about the Colecovision conversion of Donkey Kong we couldn't have foreseen that only a week later, we are reporting about the conversion of the sequel to this game: Donkey Kong Junior. In this game from 1982, the tables are turned. The famous Italian plumber that starred in Donkey Kong was appearently taken by the dark side and imprisoned the barrel-throwing ape Kong. His son, DK Junior, must find all the keys to unlock his dad's cage while being hindered by the evil plumber from italy and his arsenal of animals.
The conversion by GDX is based on the Mission Colecovision emulator for MSX and features some nice improvements such as improved support for keyboard and joysticks.

no 3. After level 2 you get level 1 again, after that level 3 comes up. I've played the original on my colecovision to death when I was a kid, it was no different back then Smile

Great conversion, seems flawless to me.
