Date: 1982
Display: LCD
Comments: A rare game by Tiger, its more commonly seen in this Tandy release.  Naturally its a donkey kong clone, and is also a licensed Universal Studios King Kong title.  There also is a tabletop version which is much more rare, and an Atari 2600 version too (tigervision).

An infamous donkey kong clone, as this game got caught up in the Nintendo vs. Universal vs. Tiger lawsuits over King Kong and Donkey Kong similarities.  One of the results of the lawsuit was that Tiger had to change the barrels to bombs and the plumber to a firefighter so that it was a 'different' game.
