This is quite a close copy of the arcade Krazy Kong and includes barrels, fireballs, conveyor belts and lifts. The
barrels drop through the platforms randomly as well as descending the ladders on top of you. The man is well animated and
jumps very generously (which doesn't mean it's easy)! I didn't like the key positions - all on the top row, There is a
time limit for a bonus and water buckets for bonuses. Nice loading screen which matches the cassette inlay. Four screens
in this version with well combined hazards.

P.S.S's version, which has only just come out, is very like the arcade original. Your man is well animated and walks
smoothly on his way to rescue the girl. All the characters are a bit small but nothing to complain about, and the man
jumps very well. The game is colourful, tuneful and very playable - second to Ocean's Kong in fact. All the keys are well
positioned - could be used with Sinclair Interface 2 but not stated anywhere (Kempston compatible). Ocean's version comes
out with flying colours, closely followed by this one.
