This is the very last official release of Donkey Kong in 1980s. Ironically, the Conveyor Belt stage is omitted like in the original NES release.

There isn't really anything too unique about this version of Donkey Kong. The only thing noteworthy about this run is that I waited a few frames on the title screen to get a better pattern in the Ramp stage.

Just for clarification, if you turn around after taking out a bolt in the Rivet stage, you'll fall to your death. Thus, I had to jump around the 1:02 mark of the run.

Merry late Christmas and happy early New Year!


feos: I saved 12 frames in level 2 by jumping over the fireball, but the global timer that controls the spring didn't let me carry that improvement to the end of the room. Adjusting the game start within those 12 frames only made things worse. Accepting to Vault.
