===================================DISCLAIMER==================================
I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
IGN (faqs.ign.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com) to host my FAQs from now on.
Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
hassle in my mailbox.
So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.

Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear
anywhere at the following URLs:

###############################################################################

There are only two item in the game, one is a key that you use in the last
stage, the other is fruit.


Fruit - Fruit comes in many shapes but it's all worth 400 points and falls once
        you grab it.  Falling friut can kill enemies if it lands on them.

Key - The last stage has a number of keys and you need to move them into their
      locks to beat the stage.


###############################################################################
                                  (D) ENEMIES
###############################################################################

This section also includes hazards, but basically it's anything that can kill
you.


=======
Lizards
=======

These enemies appear in the first and fourth stages and they come in two
varieties, red and blue.  The blue enemies walk along the ground before
climbing down chains/vines and fall off at the bottom.  The red versions are
exactly the same except they don't fall off at the bottom of the chain/vine,
they climb back up it instead.

To avoid them while hanging on a vine/chain just make sure your hand isn't on
the vine that they're on.  To avoid them on the ground simply do a running jump
over them.


=====
Birds
=====

These enemies move horizontally through the air before diving down a little and
moving horizontally in the opposite direction.  They move pretty fast so you
should always watch out for them, but they can also drop eggs to kill you so
they're twice as dangerous.


======
Sparks
======

These enemies only appear in the third stage and they come in two varieties,
red and blue.  The red enemies just circle the platform that they're on.  The
blue enemies do the same thing, but they can also go down the faint blue
"ladders" that you see in the background in this stage.

While they move at a good speed you can easily jump over them as long as you
keep an eye out for them ahead of time.


=======
Gravity
=======

Jr isn't that agile in this game and basically if you fall from a height of
more than a few pixels he will die.


###############################################################################
                                (E) WALKTHROUGH
###############################################################################
                           Bricklayer J. Gastronomy

There are only four stages to the game, but you can replay them to your
heart's content.

Jr can climb up fastest when he holds two vines/chains/poles, conversely he
climbs down fastest if he's only holding one vine/chain/pole at the time.


========
Stage 01
========

Jump to the leftmost vine from the start of the stage, then climb enough to
reach the vine on your right.  Climb both vines at once to climb up a lot
faster, then watch for any lizards above as you grab the nearby fruit.

Drop to the platform on your right and jump to the vine beyond, then grab the
fruit and slide down the right side of the vine to the ground below.  Jump
across a pair of gaps to your right next and climb the vine to your right, then
head left to the banana while watching the lizards above.

Climb up to the fruit above and carefully head to the rightmost vine, then
climb up the pair of vines to reach the top of the screen faster.  Watch out
for any lizards on the platform to your left, then drop onto it and jump to the
slightly higher platform further left.  Finally jump over any lizards that get
in your way as you jump to the vine beside the key symbol and exit the stage.


========
Stage 02
========

Jump on the springboard to your right and let it bounce you to the stationary
platform beyond.  Jump on the large moving platform up ahead and ride it to the
other side of the gap, then climb up the pair of chains.

Drop to the platform on your left, then watch the birds and the moving handles.
Jump to the closest handle when it starts to pass under the fruit above you,
then drop to the small moving platform to your left when you're above it.

Jump to the handle on your left once it descends, then grab the closest chain
on your left when you get close enough and start climbing it.  Watch the birds
as you climb to the fruit above, then carefully head right across the chains
until you reach the rightmost pair.

Climb to the top of these chains, then drop to the platform on your left.  Jump
over the birds if needed as you jump the gap and climb the leftmost chain to
end the stage.


========
Stage 03
========

Jump to the pair of bars above you and climb up them, then drop to the platform
on your right when there's no enemy below.  Head right and collect the fruit if
you want, then jump any enemies along the way and be careful of the faint
vertical sections of blue particles.  These are like ladders of sorts for the
blue enemies and they can travel down them to kill you.

Grab the poles on your right and climb as high as you can, then watch the
enemies as you drop on the platform to your left.  Watch the enemies once again
as you head left, then take the fruit if you like before grabbing the poles to
your left.

Climb as high as you can, then watch the enemies as you drop to the platform on
your right.  Take the fruit if you want, otherwise continue right and grab the
poles when you reach them.  Climb to the top and carefully drop to the platform
on your left, then jump any enemies in your way as you jump to the final pole
and end the stage.


========
Stage 04
========

This stage has two lizards and multiple birds as the main hazards, but it's not
really that hard a stage.  Basically you need to move the six keys into their
respective locks at the top of the room.

You can even use the fruit to take out the pair of lizards in this stage, then
you never have to worry about them, it's up to you really.


Start with the lock that's above you when you start the stage, you can even
grab the left fruit on your way up if you wish.  Quickly drop down to the
bottom of the chain and move right so your between the next two keys, then move
them up to their locks while avoiding the enemies.

Drop down once again and head right to the next pair of keys, then cautiously
rush them up to their locks exactly like you did for the previous pair.

Finally drop down once more (grab the fruit on the way down if you wish) and
head right to the last key.  Keep an eye on the enemies as usual, then move the
key into the lock to free Donkey Kong while ending both the stage and the game.

The game will continue back at the first stage though and you can continue
playing until you lose all of your lives or get bored.

For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
the same idea.

I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
send money, so it's here for those people.


For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
excellent progress on a few FAQs.

If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.

My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
listed below.


For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

fecalord2002 (AT) yahoo (DOT) ca

Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
