Donkey Kong Jr. is a DSiWare game based on the Game & Watch LCD toy of the same name. In this game, you play as Jr., who must rescue his father, Donkey Kong, from Mario, who has captured him and locked him in a cage. Mario is setting off Snapjaw traps to thwart you, and you'll have to dodge the birds too as you jump and climb vines to reach the hanging key and jam it in the lock. Do this four times in succession, and you'll remove all of the cage sections, freeing DK from his prison, earning you a 20 point bonus.

You'll score a miss if you run into a Snapjaw, a bird, or mistime the jump to the key and fall to the ground. If you get three misses, your game is over. At 300 points, all of your misses will clear, and if you have no misses, all the points you earn will double until you score a miss.
