Please note: the 4th game screen (the pies/conveyor belt screen) screenshot will be forthcoming.
Donkey King is one of the most famous games the Coco 1/2 ever had. It was the first game that actually put all other clones, on all other home computers (or home game systems) to shame... and it wasn't even a licensed arcade version! All 4 screens from the original arcade hit Donkey Kong, most of the multi-voice music, and most of the intermissions were included. The best port of this game (prior to the Coco) was probably the Colecovision, but this one was better.
I believe that this was part of the reason that Tom Mix Software had to rename it to "The King" later on; or they would have gotten sued (they really should have just made it an official licensed version at that point... it was that good!)
