Horrible port. I now remember how bad the controls are on this one. Jumping in directions is a chore for some reason. I'm pretty sure this one is only 2 levels but I didn't have the patience to find out. frown Cheers!

I was practicing this game for the Colecovision last night, and that port is HORRIBLE as well!

I actually enjoyed the Colecovision version. Those damn rhinos are erratic have no pattern as the arcade version does... Try the 1985 C64 version, that was by far the best and closest port to the arcade.

My problem with the Colecovision port is that there is no indication as to your positioning when you make your jumps.  Jumping on the fishes is the worst part, especially when you're jumping from one row of fish to the next row of fish.  There is nothing to indicate whether you miss the head or tail sideways by mere pixels or if you're going to overshoot your jump when you're perfectly centered.

Zaxxon did a wonderful job of giving you a sense of position.  Imagine playing Zaxxon and having no clue where you really are; that is what Congo Bongo feels like to me on the hippo/fish stage.
