Decent enough conversion for an OK sequel, but for me it just didn't have the same nostalgia or popularity as the original Donkey Kong.

As with its predecessor, the game was more difficult than the ColecoVision version, particularly on the second screen. In fact, a friend of mine who owned both hated the Atari version because it was too difficult even for him, and he was a relatively skilled arcade player. However, that aside, at least with the Atari version, when you successfully completed that round, you got the satisfaction of Donkey Kong booting Mario off into oblivion (as opposed to seeing DK raise his arms in victory).

I myself could never get past the second screen until the cheat code for invincibility was printed (I think it was in Atari Explorer magazine).

Excellent game. I think it is just as good as the first.

Additional Comments

The version available here is 100% verified. Note that another edition with a CRC of a4eb70ef is also "floating around". Still unknown is whether it was a revision or a bad dump from the start. According to Kr0tki, "the only difference is bit 2 in $3ffd which controls whether the cartridge gets run after initialization. This doesn't seem to affect how the game works since it never leaves initialization anyway".
