Donkey Kong Screenshots

Arcade version

Title screen
Insert coin
Donkey Kong has kidnapped Pauline
He climbs up the scaffolding, then jumps on it so that it collapses
How high can you get?
You play as Mario, a man with moustaches and plumber overalls
Use the hammer to smash the barrels that DK throws down
Climb the scaffolding to reach Pauline
Killed by a blue barrel
At last, Mario is reunited with Pauline...
...but DK grabs Pauline and climbs further
Screen 2 takes place in a pie factory
Pauline cries for help
Again, Mario and Pauline are reunited...
The third screen involves conveyors and pulleys and other construction site things
Climb for the umbrella
Unlike nowadays, Mario can't jump from heights
Game over
This was before name entry was limited to three letters and the usual fiddly input method
