 Classic version
Donkey Kong Jr. starts at the bottom of the screen, where he is immediately bombarded by Nitpickers and Snapjaws. After climbing a pair of vines to the second floor, a piece of fruit can be found, which can be dropped on enemies below for bonus points. After avoiding more Snapjaws, Donkey Kong Jr. must jump to the swinging key above, which he can use to unlock part of his father's cage. He will drop down, repeating the process. Once four keys are delivered, Donkey Kong is free, awarding a big bonus to the player. Along the way, Donkey Kong Jr. can also grab hold of vines above, which help in avoiding the ground-bound Snapjaws.
