Donkey Kong Jr. is one of 9-Volt's microgames in WarioWare: Move It!. It is based on the 1986 Nintendo Entertainment System game of the same name.


The player controls a voxelated Donkey Kong Jr. with elastic arms, and must climb up the vines and reach the platform without getting caught by the Snapjaw. If Donkey Kong Jr. lands on the platform, he will extend his arms. However, if he touches the Snapjaw, as well as an enemy in Levels 2 and 3, he will drop, and the microgame ends in a loss. Level 1 uses the Scales Form, while the next two levels use Knight.

  • Level 1: Donkey Kong Jr. grabs onto two vines and must climb up each vine twice.
  • Level 2: Donkey Kong Jr. grabs onto one vine and must climb up four times.
  • Level 3: Same as Level 2, but there is a Nitpicker that the player should avoid.
