Mario has captured Donkey Kong in the original Donkey Kong game. With him caged up, it's up to Donkey Kong Jr. to save his dad. The game takes place in a jungle setting.
Mario doesn't do much this game. The computer controls him and he just sends the enemies out toward DKJr. In the game only as a connection to DK.
Donkey Kong Jr. is a monkey about half the size of DK. He wears a shirt that says Jr. (I think?) and nothing else!!!!!!! He has limited jumping ability, but he can climb vines, which is essential to his quest.
I'm not gonna get to detailed here. There are little muncher guys that can climb vines and chase Jr. There are birds that fly around and poop eggs (I think they're eggs
) that can kill. Jr. can also die from an electric current in a level of the NES version. There may be more, but they are rare. All in all, a good variety for a 4 screen game.
DKJr. Places four locks in place in the last level and opens the cage that traps his dad. They then, assumedly, go off into the jungle to live happily ever after.
