In conclusion, this is a pretty good version of Donkey Kong Junior considering the system it was released on, but the version on the NES, and probably the one on the Colecovision also, are superior. That being the case, there is no logical reason for you to own this version unless you do not have any other system that the game is available on or you are a collector of Atari 2600 titles.

The Video Game Critic
Frustration will set in almost immediately as your limited movements make you easy prey for the wandering teeth. There are few audio effects to speak of, but the "climbing" sound has a screeching quality that's irritating. Despite having three screens, Donkey Kong Jr. is a lukewarm effort that fails to live up to the arcade classic.
