    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!

    PLAY BY THE NUMBERS



    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.
