    Game Overview

    Learning can be fun, especially when you play along with Donkey Kong Jr.! Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by directing Junior, a cute little monkey who must climb up and down vines to collect numbers and math symbols to solve the math problems his father gives him. Compete with a friend in a race to solve problems in Game A or add more challenge with Game B. Of course, you can also practice on your own! This game is perfect for younger players who are looking for a fun and easy way to develop their math skills!

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):


    Get Donkey Kong Jr. swinging through the numbers and you'll be out of the math jungle in no time. Whether you're practicing by yourself or playing with a friend, this game will really add up to fun and education for a number of reasons. But it takes more than math skills to climb up chains and jump safely onto little islands in your search for the right answers.

    GAME PLAY: When you play with a friend, the mischievous Donkey Kong shows you a number, and you have to find a way to make that number by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing. If it's a big number, you might have to do some tricky chain climbing to get there. When you practice by yourself, you pick a problem that is started by the computer, then you have to find the right numbers to finish the problem. Donkey Kong gives you a score in the end, so keep your wits about you, and have some fun.
