Dunkey Munkey is a rather innovative clone of Donkey King. While nowhere near as close to the original Donkey Kong as Donkey King, it was also much easier, and therefore more popular with younger players. It also had playful interludes, and some changes to make it a somewhat different game.

It has only 2 screens... the Rivets screen (Above, left) is pretty similiar to the original, except that you can change direction in mid-air while jumping, and you use a fire extinguisher to put out the fires (as opposed to the original's hammer). The 2nd screen is a unique combination of the 1st and 3rd screens from the original arcade game (Girders and Elevators).

Probably my favorite part of the game is the intro when you first start... similiar to the arcade, the gorilla carries the girl up a pair of ladders to the top of the girders. This is where it gets unique... the gorilla plays a little intro tune on a piano! (See top right screen shot.)
