David's Kong is a Donkey Kong clone. The game consists of two parts, both played in the same level layout.
First, you have to climb to the top to rescue your girlfriend while a gorilla throws barrels that roll down the ramps. When you get to the top, the gorilla throws one barrel down the middle of the platforms. This creates extra gaps in the platforms you will have to jump across. Also, a house appears at the bottom of the screen. In the second part, you have to carry your girlfriend down to the house. This time, flaming barrels move up the ramps and the gorilla throws flaming barrels aimed directly at you, in a straight line.
The player can move left and right or up and down ladders with the cursor keys and jump by pressing F1. But when holding down a cursor key the player character doesn't move smoothly, so in order to manoeuvre quickly enough to avoid the barrels, you have to keep tapping the cursor keys. Also, if you jump while standing on a ladder it's instant death.
The game was programmed in GW-BASIC by an unknown author, and distributed as a compiled executable.
Oh Donkey - what have they done to you? This obviously is a clone of the classic Donkey Kong. The objective is to free the woman that is being held prison by a monster monkey who's name in the original is Donkey Kong (no name is given here). Donkey (aka his unnamed brother) is throwing barrels of oil at you while some flames are creeping up from the bottom. Once you manage to safe the lady you got to take her to your cottage - which I found impossible as the way is simply destroyed by a barrel that's being thrown by an angry uber-monkey.
Anyway - be assured the gameplay of this version is much worse than the graphics. *coughs* The only speed that it seemed to be playable at was 3 - at 1 and 2 it was waaaay to slow, at 4 too fast and at 5 it was over before you realized it had started. This game is obviously an amateur version and it might have run very well on XTs, however on today's computers it's not really... well, you know. Not a big hit.
