Kongs Revenge is a Donkey Kong variant. Like in the original arcade game the player has to save a maiden from a vicious monkey. To reach the maiden at the top of the screen the player has to climb ladders and jump between platforms. A ladder is automatically climbed when the player walks into it and it is not possible to go back down (although some levels have lifts for going down). To avoid climbing a ladder the player has to jump past it and then the ladder is destroyed. The player has to watch out for barrels that are dropped by Kong as well as fire balls. Barrels can be jumped past while fire balls can not be avoided. Ladders are destroyed when hit by a fire ball which might make a level unfinishable. The player has five lives and is given a score when all are lost. After a game is over it's possible to restart from the current level without going back to the first.
