Kong Strikes Back! is an unofficial sequel to Donkey Kong (ARC). The game takes place at an amusement park and a generic giant gorilla has kidnapped a generic female, and must be rescued by a generic tradesman. While the plot is awfully similar to arcade game, the game play is quite unique. There aren't any barrels or fireballs to dodge, instead you must climb the tracks of a roller coaster and avoid the cars as they pass. In each stage you are given a couple bombs that can be used to temporarily destroy a single roller coaster car in you're in a jam. You can find safety in strategically placed ladders, often with bonus points at the top. If you can made it to your sweetheart, you'll finish the stage and move on to the next one.

Music

There is only a single music track for the game, but it's quite impressive for a 1985 Commodore 64 game. It's also Martin Galway's very first soundtrack for the Commodore 64.

Ripping Commodore music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
