The King

Packaging for Sinclair QL The King Reverse Inlay for Sinclair QL The King

The King is a good colourful implementation of the arcade favourite Donkey Kong.

In the game, you are attempting to reach the top of a tower in order to rescue a damsel in distress, guarded by King Kong. King Kong is throwing barrels down at you which roll along the platforms, or can drop vertically.

In this variant, you can pick up a mallet to smash the barrels, but if any of them reach the barrel of oil at the bottom left hand corner of the screen, they turn into a small monster that moves back up the screen, making it even more difficult.
