The Video Game Critic
Considering what it had to live up to, this is one hell of a sequel. This time you play Donkey Kong's son, trying to save his father who has been captured. The play mechanics are imaginative, letting you climb sideways along vines. DK Jr. manages to capture the spirit of the original Donkey Kong while providing a fresh new game playing experience. The graphics are excellent and noticeably better than Donkey Kong, but the sound is sparse and can be fairly annoying. There are three skill levels. If you liked Donkey Kong you will like this.
The Atari Times
All in all, this game is enjoyable in spite of the rotten sound and awkward controls. Give it a shot. Heck, it won't cost you much as this is a very common cartridge.
