                                          1.MY OPINION
    
    Welcome to my first FAQ! Now my opinion. I've played this game on the
    Colcevision, Atari 2600,
    Arcade system but the NES version is the best. It has colourful garphics and
    Mario, Donkey & Jr
    have a variety of colours and animations. The enemy's are detailed and there is
    no clipping in it unlike a lot of NES games. The sound is great.The music is
    catchy and although the sound effects are basic "beeps" and "bangs" and the
    occasional "bong" but they are awesome. It is very challenging, but is over to
    quick. But it is a very, very fun game to play. It is my most played nes game,
    even though I have about 50. I would give it a 8.5/10.
    
    
                                         2.GAME BASICS
    Here I give you some basic infomation about the game,Like stuff you'd mostly
    stuff you find in the instruction manual for Donkey Kong Jr (or as I call him
    Jr.) But hey,Who can be bothered reading 'em? There are 2 modes A & B. A is the
    easier mode and B has more enemies. They are also a lot faster.
    
    
          CONTROLS
      Left:  Jr. moves to the left.
      Right: Jr. moves to the right.
      Up:    Jr. climbs up the vines or chains or whatever.
      Down:  Jr. climbs down the vines or chains or whatever.
      Start:  Pause the game (Starts selected game in menu.)
      Select: Choose game in the menu.
      A: DK Junior jumps (Not that high, may I add)
      B: Not used.
    
          OTHER CONTROL NOTES
    When you climb upwards, if you have half a brain you may notice that DK Junior
    climbs slow with
    a single vine. But when you hold 2 vines at once you go twice as fast.limb up
    much faster.
    But when you are climbing down, Just grab 1. If you go down holding 2 vines you
    go twice as slow. Simply grab a vine by jumping on to it. While holding a vine
    you can reach over and grab another one.
    
    In this you can defeat enemies by dropping fruit on them. Just touch the fruit
    and it will fall down and smoosh them. You can defeat basically all enemies by
    doing this . Basically except Donkey Kong.
    
    And Jr. will die if you fall from to high or being touched by an enemie.
    
    
         STORY
    Since Mario rescued his girlfriend Pauline, Mario has put Donkey Kong in a zoo,
    in a big cage.  Since then the anger has built up in Jr. After many suicide
    attempts and a brief cannobilism stage the diaper wearing Kong goes out to save
    his pop. But not while marios on shift. His new job is guarding the cage. And
    so it begins.
    
    
         CHARACTERS
    Donkey Kong- The old Kong is trapped in a big cage. You do not control him but
    he plys a big roll in the game. He is BIG and browny-reddy.
    
    Donkey Kong Jr.-Donkey Kongs son is the character you control in this game. He
    has to save his pop. He is small and wears a diaper.
    
    Mario- The plumber is back and he plays the bad guy. After having his
    girlfriend kidnapped he has become so grumpy. He wears red and blue.
    
         SCORING
    If you simply touch a fruit you will recieve 400 points. If your fruit hits
    something you recieve an autamatic 800 points. If your fruit hits 2 things you
    recieve 1200 points. If your frui hits THREE things (hey it's possible) you
    will recieve 1600 points.
    
    When you jump over an enemy you recieve 100 points and 300 if you jump 2.
    
    At the start of the level your time-o-meter gives you 5000 points. Every second
    it goes down until the level is over.
    
    When you score 1 000 000 points you recieve a life. Difficult but not
    impossible.
    
         ENEMIES (L and then a number means which level they are on.
    These are not the enemies real names, but they are good enough.
    BLUE CROC-L1-These crocs just go down the vines and into the water.
    RED CROC-L1,L4-These crocs go down, and then up and down etc. They can also
    switch vine/chain.
    BLUE BIRD-L2-These are just birds that fly from the right to the left. Easy to
    avoid.
    EGG-L2-These are pooped out by the blue bird.Also easy to avoid.
    ORANGE ELECTRIC-L3-These just rotate around the 1 platform. Just jump them.
    BLUE ELECTRIC-L3-They rotate around half a platform and then fall to the next.
    Watch out.
    BLACK BIRD-L4-These fly down and try to attack you.Be quick.

    First, climb the vine on top of you. Try to smoosh the crocs with the fruit at
    the top. Jump on either platform on your right.The bottom platform contains a
    red croc.Then off to the vine with the fruit. Slide down, to the ground
    platform. Keep jumping platform to platform until you reach the final one.
    Grab the 2 vines above you, and climb up and then to the vine to your left.
    Then move up.
    Avoid the crocs, and try to smoosh it with the fruit hanging there. Move to
    right and go up then jump off to the higher platform. Climb up the vines and
    jump off at the higher platform. Jump  the chomper that comes against you and
    jump up and grab the vine with nothing on it. Wait for the croc to pass then
    proceed to the last vine that is holding the key.

    First Jump on the bouncer on your right, and on the next platform. If you hold
    "up" on the control pad you bounce up higher and reach the moving platform or
    either moving vine.
    If not, jump on the moving platform when it gets close enough to you and then
    jump to the next platform. Watch out for the egg here. Climb up the chains to
    your right and on the platform.Jump off and grab one of the moving vines. When
    the smaller moving platform comes underneath you, fall on to it .Then jump to
    the other pole and grab the chain to your right, the one with the fruit on
    top.Go up while grabbing both chains.When you reach the top, keep on moving to
    the right via the chains while watching for the blue birds. Then go up the
    vines and wait for a good oppurtunerity to jump to the key vine.

    At the start jump up and grab both of the white vines. Then advance to the
    platform on your right. Try to kill the electric with the fruit. Simply jump
    the sparks by jumping over them. When you reach the right, climb up the white
    vines and onto the next platform. Continue this process until you reach the
    final white vines. Then just drop onto the top, jump the electric if neccessary
    and jump to the key vine. Watch out for the blue electrics as they hang for a
    while when they are about to drop to the next platform and will often fall on
    you.

    In this level you have to push the keys into the locks to free Donkey Kong once
    for for all.
    When the key completely reaches the top it will go into the lock. The lock will
    then change colour. The best way to do it is to grab 2 chains at a time and do
    2 keys at a time. Then slide down on only 1 vine. But you have to watch out for
    the red crocs and the black birds. Use the fruit wisely, as it is very handy at
    some points.
    When you push all the keys into all the locks, the big platform Donkey Kong and
    Mario are
    standing on will fall. But alas, Jr. catches Donkey while Mario falls to his
    near death. You will then have beaten the game. Now you do it all again!And
    again! And so on.
