DONKEY KONG JUNIOR AKA SUPER DK [1983] FOR COLECOVISION GAMEPLAY

Just more of the same - continued after the events of the original Donkey Kong from the year before (Click here for DK 1982).  Except this time around, Mario (rather, some weird-looking guy TRYING to look like Mario) has kidnapped the gorilla, and you play his wife-beater-wearing chimp of a son, climbing vines and avoiding SnapJaws to rescue him in three levels (four levels are featured on the arcade original, just like the first DK).  

The vine-climbing sound effect cracks me up every time! 

Trivia: cereals were made of both games at the time of Saturday Supercade.  Donkey Kong was a Cap'N Crunch ripoff and Donkey Kong Junior was like a Trix ripoff.
