    Oh man...I remember seeing this first on the Apple IIe in glorious green monochrome back in the Computer Labs in high school, we're talking 1983-84'ish, there were some pretty good games on the old Apple IIe

    chplft.zip

    Is that the one you mean DKong?

    Same, 1982 I think, Broderband software then bought by SEGA and converted to Arcade in 1985.
    It may of been a one man development team as well

    Always found the game hard and never gave it much time, that will change this week

    FFS I've tried all 3 - orig, bootleg and alternate. None work

    I'm doomed to not get a game this MGL unless I update from 0.100b

    I got the alternate to work only, one question, how would you configure this game on the keyboard? I'm having all sorts of troubles

    My god I was going nuts for a while there. My rom defaulted to the hard difficulty and I was barely collecting anyone. Remember to go into the dip switches and change the settings if you need to

    Ripper, one of my all time fav's. We used to be able to pick the lock on this game with a flattened nail, click up a gazillion credits & get chage for pie & a coke.... excuse me while I get a bit nostalgic .....
