We didn't think the Coleco version could be topped, but Atari has done it.

Video Game Critic, The (A) (100%)

Granted, it's not the best stage in the world, but if you're a fan of the game, it's a real treat. Oh, and did I mention this game is hard as a bastard? But it's not due to "usual suspects" of poor control, bad collision detection, or cheap hits. No, the difficulty level is just plain tough, but it's that relentless challenge that made the arcade game so great to begin with. In other versions you're practically invincible while holding the hammer, but that's definitely not the case here. If you have the option, I'd advise you to pick up this fantastic translation of Donkey Kong. Cheap and readily available, it's the definitive home version.

So if you're looking for a great home version of Donkey Kong, you can't get much better than the Atari 8-bit version. The graphics, sounds, gameplay, control, levels, and screen order is about as faithful as you'll find. Even when compared to more recent versions.

Atari Gamer - XL-XE Game Review Edition (8 out of 10) (80%)

Donkey Kong is one of the all-time classic arcade games and with its attractive graphics, great sounds and responsive gameplay this Atari 8-bit version is still one of the best out there.

Happy Computer N/A

Grafisch kann es dieses Spiel voll mit der Spielhallenversion aufnehmen, wenn es auch nicht vollständig mit ihr übereinstimmt. Ein Hit ist die Heimcomputer-Version dennoch.

Micro 7 N/A

Les 4 tableaux ainsi que les saynettes intermédiaires ainsi qu'une fidélité graphique remarquable.
