Microdeal's Donkey King (renamed The King) has been one of the biggest selling Dragon games. This is the long-awaited sequel to the masterful original and something I could not wait to get my hands on. You are the son of the gorilla that was captured in the first game and must try to rescue your dad from the evil clutches of Luigi. This entails jumping across vines, scampering up and down them and avoiding obstacles and unfriendly beasts sent by Luigi to trap you. As in the original game, once you reach the top of the screen you are taken to a different screen. There are four screens involving trampolines, conveyor belts and all the obstacles you would expect from this type of game.

There is a choice of one of the two-colour screens or the higher resolution black and white screen. The title page, demonstration mode and high score table are all up to the usual high standard but I cannot help feeling that this game is not as good as the original. This is far too expensive for an arcade game.
