Donkey Kong (Coleco 1982)
Considered by many as a disgusting piece of Coleco pimp work, this is definitely a stripped down version of the arcade game. My main complaint is not that it only has two out of the four screens of the original, but that it seems that they didn't even care enough to make them GOOD screens. The game still ramps up the difficulty as you get to later levels--so that's good. Even those things that I THINK are supposed to be fireballs on the girder level eventually get kind of tricky to get passed. It would be nice if someday we get a better version of this classic game for our vcs--until then, we are stuck with this.
