I thought this was a good version. Here there are five screens to complete - all are difficult. It requires the most skill in timing because the last bit of the top section is too low for jumping barrels. The game has good graphics on the whole, but they aren't super-smooth due to 'character position movement' being used as opposed to pixel type. This game however, has the best sound. Keyboard play could be improved - the keys are all along the top row. There are bonuses for getting green burgers and also a time bonus. I would recommend this version.

Killer Kong is a version with many ladders and is not at all like the original really. It is just a miss-the-fireball game, though I found it very playable. The jumps need to be timed right (like Anirog's version) because the graphics aren't smooth. I can say the sound is great and the colour is well used. It's much more addictive than Anirog's version and has more joystick options.
