The entire battle takes place on a grid of Peg Boards, while Congazuma slowly jumps across the arena back-and-forth. In order to damage Congazuma, Donkey Kong must charge into it at any angle. Whenever hit, Congazuma will enter a brief state of invulnerability where he will make short hops in the direction he is facing before losing his invulnerability. As Congazuma takes more and more damage, his invulnerable state will become shorter in duration, and his jumps while vulnerable will become higher and go a greater distance. When defeated, Congazuma will disassemble, granting Donkey Kong the first gold medal.
