CHAMP Kong is a DOS shareware remake of the classic Donkey Kong arcade machine. Like the other games in CHAMProgramming's series of arcade remakes, it closely emulates the original with two different game modes, the original 'Classic' mode and an enhanced 'Champ' mode.
The 'Classic' mode plays and feels much like the arcade machine, with very similar graphics, sound and gameplay. Gameplay is well-known: You play Jumpman, having to rescue your girlfriend from the clutches of love-sick giant ape Kong, by running, jumping an climbing to get to the top of the skyscraper. You can pick up your girlfriend's lost items for bonus points and grab a hammer to smash barrels and fireballs thrown at you by Kong.
The 'Champ' mode is an upgraded version of the classic game, featuring different levels and more bonuses.
Finally, the game features a variety of options -- one or two player modes, three difficulty settings, adjustable game speed, input by keyboard, mouse or joystick (Champ even released a 'Champ cable' that allowed you to play the game with digital joysticks), and a high score table to round it all off.
This version of CHAMP Kong was designed for personal computers with operating system MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System),
which was operating system developed by Microsoft in 1981. It was the most widely-used operating system in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was supplied
with most of the IBM computers that purchased a license from Microsoft. After 1995, it was pushed out by a graphically more advanced system - Windows and
its development was ceased in 2000. At the
time of its greatest fame, several thousand games designed specifically for computers with this system were created. Today, its development is no longer continue
and for emulation the free DOSBox emulator is most often used. More information about MS-DOS operating system can be found
