Donkey Kong on the Colecovision. It’s similar to it’s arcade counterpart where you beat the game then the game switches up a little bit.

    I played this for years on end after I got it in 1983. My grades slumped until my grandmother took it away.

    This was easily the best port of Donkey Kong out of any 2nd gen console

    Coleco was so much better than all the other garbage systems back in the 80’s.

    It played pretty well – best home version in 1982, and for a few years after. It was missing some of the eye candy, the Kong climbing animations and the death animations. Also missing is the cement factory and the falling springs on the elevator stage.

    Colecovision really was a great system. A lot of quality games. Amazing sound.

    Ohhhh that ladder-climbing mechanic was actually pretty bad if you didn’t know the cheat (which I didn’t)

    I owned this game system, and game obviously, and I played the hell out of it. To this day I swear there is no ending. I came to this video thinking there would be an ending but not through deaths. I once played this game for four hours strait without dying looking for the ending. Can anyone prove my memory wrong please?

    I remember when I first saw this game how amazing the graphics look compared to Atari 2600. But our Coleco vision was hooked up to a black-and-white TV. It was so colorful once we finally got a Second color TV. Mom wouldn’t let game systems be connected to the Only color TV because it would burn it out Which I think was common with Atari 2600 back in the days. Color TVs just so you know where a lot more expensive back in the early 80s.

    You obviously don’t know the cheat glitch for the first level. My brother figured it out back in the 80’s. Thanks for the nostalgia.

    It makes me wonder if it was possible to run this version to the kill screen like in the arcade version?

    Excellent graphics for the time, but no Pie (Cement) factory and no springs on the elevator level..

    This nintendo classic game was everywhere. It was even packaged with the colecovision.
    Everyone likes it because of its cool music, graphics and sound effects. We all know the history too. Cliché, but also unique.The gameboy version may be way better but this is the classic of the classic.
    My rate:
    20/20.

    This us a excellent version, but without the reward of the cut scene animation. NES was decent, but the omission of the pie factory was unforgivable. My Commodore 64 AtariSoft version had all 4 stages and all cut scene animations. I never could understand why the other developers couldn't finish the job at the time.

    I beated this version in difficuilty 4 and even despites being nothing compared to the arcade,the hit detection feels somewhat cheap and those fire balls chasing,surrending,blocking and climbing faster from or on ladders then mario can do,wich is unfair since i get little time to climb the ladder,also jumping on alivators feels cheap as you can fall trough if you try to jump from the bothum part on it.

    Wow, nearly arcade-perfect graphics. I missed out on gaming in the early 80s, so it's always fascinating to look back and see what could (and couldn't) be done.

    I think that Nintendo are very selfish & stingy for refusing to add their Colecovison version of Donkey Kong and all of the other Nintendo video games they offered on the original Colecovision & ADAM for Colecovision Flashback. I've been picturing that a Colecovision Flashback 2 could happen. But probably not. I was hoping that if a Flashback 2 was ever made, Colecovison's Nintendo games would be included to it. But a Flashback 2 will probably not happen, and if it did, the Nintendo games would not be added to the new system. Besides, Nintendo's current popularity is not being heard of as well right now. Its marketing may start to be going down now.
