Apart from Krazy Kong, this is the only version with a loading screen picture. The game lts.It is a variation on the Kong theme - rescue your girl from the clutches of the evil black knight. There's the usual barrels and holes to jump and ladders to cli mb. Also a handy Umbrella to break and accidental fail (once). Th. game is very fast. probably the fastest of the 104. but the graphics are rather small and Colourless. Jumping is sudden and control generally it difficult due to speed and poor keyboard layout. Ladder climbing is automatic, so there's no going back' This lea difficult game to play (riot a bad thing). but with its uninspiring graphics and lsck of playabilIty, i didn't really enjoy it.

I found Killer Knlçtit yy difficult to play because jump control is very difficult. I know lye said the same boul the Anirog Kong and Kifl.c Kong. but here thre seem9 to be no ‘fear to the lump, perhaps because if happens so qUickly, Poor Sound and even worse colour drops this game's value. I also get the feeling this is compiled mic - the poor block graphics with urunter.stlng iJDGs make it not worth considering iI you are alter a real Kong game.
