Author's comments and explanations:
The classic arcade game Donkey Kong ported (non very well) to the Atari 2600.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.12.2
  • Beats the game as fast as possible


I wanted to resync the published run in the most up to date version of BizHawk, but it didn't sync. So I reworked the run with some new manipulation to save a few frames. Maybe a few more frames can be saved still, it doesn't seem quite optimal but I did what I could with it.

NOTE: There are apparently two publications of this game, one by Coleco and then later by Atari, they appear to be the same game and the run syncs on both ROMs.
