Donkey Kong IntelliVision review. Classic Game Room reviews DONKEY KONG for Intellivision released in 1982 by Nintendo and published by Coleco. CGR Donkey Kong video review features Donkey Kong gameplay recorded from the original Intellivision by Mattel, because as the box screams, this does not work on INTELLIVISION II!? Donkey Kong gameplay is pretty sloppy compared to other home console versions of the game and fans will want to avoid this crappy Donkey Kong abomination with two levels, awful controls and Porky Pig replacing Mario. If you're looking for a great old school home version of Donkey Kong get the ColecoVision version and avoid this.
